When we think of holidays, we think of jetting off on a plane to somewhere totally new, and indulging in all a country we've never visited before has to offer. But we'd be mistaken to forget about the humble staycation, which entails visiting a new part of the country you're already in - and they can sometimes be the very best trips.

Think cosy, peaceful weekends and relaxed weeks, just a little closer to home. And the best news? Airbnb offers some great rentals for a perfect weekend escape. 

RECOMMENDED: Read about the hidden side of Hong Kong’s amazing island life for inspiration on your future city escapes.
