Places to visit for a getaway this September

The September holidays are coming, hooray! If you are thinking of going away for the week, here are some places that you can consider on your well-deserved break.

  1. Copenhagen

If you’re thinking of taking a long break, consider Nyhavn, Copenhagen, a romantic and Instagram-worthy city.

Sept hol 1


Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark is a city with many cosy restaurants, beautiful architectures and environmentally friendly amenities. After all, it was named the world’s greenest city back in 2014. On top of that, Copenhagen is also closely related to the dreamy fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen as many of it were set in Copenhagen. Your pictures are sure to be Instagram worthy at every corner of this beautiful city.

During your trip, you can have a cosy dinner at one of the restaurants or simply buy a beer and have a chat at the quayside.

One of the must-do activity that allows tourists to enjoy and see the city is to go on a relaxing boat ride along the canals in Copenhagen. Staying true to its green roots, these Danish boats from GoBoat are made from sustainable materials and its batteries are also powered using solar power! You can even enjoy your meal or have a drink during your boat ride as there is a table in the middle of the boat.

Travelling with kids? Fret not, taking a ride on the GoBoat is family friendly. Fulfill your dream of becoming the captain of your own ship (or boat, in this case) as GoBoat does not require any prior license or experience.

Another attraction in Copenhagen is Tivoli Gardens. This one’s for the thrill seekers out there.

Sept hol 4


Tivoli Gardens is an amusement park with a long history since 1843. You can find fun rides for both adults and young kids there!

If you’re an adrenaline junkie, rides such as The Demon , The Star Flyer , The Golden Tower & Vertigo will definitely be up your alley.

There will always be something for someone here at Tivoli Gardens. Catch the many concerts and stage shows if you’re looking for something less adventurous and enjoy rides that are not only nostalgic but also fast speed rides to get your heart pumping. Also, remember to stay until night falls as the place will be magically lit with thousands of lights, creating a perfect backdrop for the most beautiful photos.

To really enjoy your time in Copenhagen, rent a bike and cycle through the beautiful city like a local! It is not only environmentally friendly but you also get to discover sights you’ll probably will not see if you take other modes of transport.

With the bicycle friendly environment such as wide, spacious lanes, it will definitely be a pleasure discovering the scenic Copenhagen on bike.

An iconic site would be the Ruins of St. Paul, a short visit there would make you be awed by its beauty. This Catholic Church has an interesting history and many tourists flock to Macao to visit the church each year.
