Known by a variety of unique sobriquets such as Old Smoky for the smoke cloud that seems to perpetually hang over it, the beautiful city of Edinburgh sits perched on a range of rocky hills with the sea in the distance. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, the city has several cultural and historical landmarks worthy of leisurely exploration. Explore the palace, castle, churches, museums and climb up to Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano, for panoramic views of the city. Home to three excellent universities, Edinburgh has a diverse student population that has led to the mushrooming of numerous eateries and restaurants offering varied cuisines ranging from authentic Scottish dishes to exotic Yemeni food and fusion Scottish-Asian delicacies. Stop by the city in summer to soak in the street party ambiance of the annual ‘Fringe’ comedy festival, as well as the many music and literary festivals that happen during this time, or revel in the party atmosphere at New Year during the annual Hogmanay celebrations.
