Colour tends to speak for itself.

There’s never a real need to explain the appeal of a colourful travel destination. Photos of the colourful city/town/village in question is enough to beguile travellers the world over!

I’ve always been a fan of colours. At home, on my travels… even in my food and looking back at my photos across all of last year, my fascination with colourful travel destination seems so much more apparent than I’d realised. Here are the 14 most colourful places I visited last year!
