The Punch House is an atmospheric pub-hotel right in the heart of Monmouth - a perfect place for exploring Wales and the Wye Valley. Stay in a room and enjoy live music at the weekend where the locals come to let off steam. My nine-year- old daughter loved the Lady Gaga show. The Punch House is a grade 11 listed building and an old coaching inn dating from the 12th century with oak beams everywhere, friendly staff and customers and and rooms from £45 a night.

Amristar is the home of the Sikhs and a welcoming place to all travellers who take the trouble to go up to northern India. The famous Golden Temple is the main attraction, a real eye opening building that rises in the skyline of this affluent, bustling city. Eat with the locals at dahbas, informal tapas-like snack bars. The best is Brothers Dhaba in the small streets of the centre where delicious delicacies can be sampled for around 80 rupees - £1.50 - each.
The Captain's Place is a village taverna overlooking the marina in the pretty village of Datca serving delicious local fish courses (£8-10) and meze (£4-5) to holidaymaking families, locals and international tourists. Grab a table outside to enjoy dinner from its elevated dining area overlooking the harbour and the spectacular sunsets. Chicken with walnuts, sea bass (levrek) and raki (Turkish aniseed liqour) are highly recommended. You can add your opinion to the other thousands of positive ones on the tables and walls! If you want to get away from Brit dominated Marmaris, it's a beautiful one hour drive or bus ride on a winding road with jaw dropping Aegean views.
