The doors are open at Vietnam's newest beach hotel. Ana Mandara Hue is a luxury resort on the central coast near the imperial city of Hue, known for its ancient architecture and monuments (hotelcollectionindochine.com). Elsewhere in the country, Hanoi celebrates its 1000th birthday on 10 October.
Get stuck into the Australian food scene. Crave Sydney is a month-long international food festival throughout October with events ranging from night noodle markets to a world chef showcase and an enormous picnic on the Sydney Harbour Bridge (cravesydney.com). Back in England, enjoy three weeks of cultural celebration in Kensington and Chelsea, West London. Across the Street, Around the World is a festival from Monday to 23 October honouring the borough's cultural diversity with events such as reggae poetry, a wall of records celebrating Notting Hill's musical heritage along Portobello Road and a series of films ( www.rbkc.gov.uk/acrossthestreet).
