We’ve long used horoscopes to predict our fortunes – so why not let your zodiac sign inspire our travel plans?

According to astrology, each sign has specific traits that provide an insight into one’s personality. For instance, Taureans love to splurge, while Scorpios prefer to unplug and recharge. With this in mind, here’s how to travel according to your zodiac sign.

Aries (21 March-19 April) – Hawaii

Traits: Aries are energetic, driven and action-oriented. They are not one to laze around on a beach or by the pool.

Destination: Since adventure is the order of the day for Aries, Hawaii would be a great choice. With its stunning volcano hikes, thrilling watersports such as cage diving with sharks and manta rays, waterfall rappelling and more, Hawaii beckons adventure junkies from far and wide.

Taurus (20 April-20 May) – Singapore

Traits: Taureans are all about the finer things in life. They love getting pampered and don’t mind splurging on luxurious vacations.

Destination: Singapore would be ideal for Taureans, as this Southeast Asian country promises luxury on another level. Elaborate spa treatments, sophisticated accommodation, world-class dining, casinos, underground bars and day trips in yachts and helicopters should satisfy the cravings of a Taurus.

Gemini (21 May-20 June) – New York City

Traits: Restless, impulsive and flexible, you won’t find Geminis sunbathing. Curious by nature, they love to truly immerse themselves in a destination.

Destination: The energetic vibe of New York City matches the spirited nature of the Gemini. A day in the Big Apple could include taking a walk in Central Park, grabbing a bagel and an Americano in SoHo, enjoying the views of the city from the Empire State Building, ordering lunch in Chinatown, shopping at Bloomingdale’s, catching a Broadway show and then ending the night at the iconic Times Square.

Cancer (21 June-22 July) – Italy

Traits: Cancerians are homebodies who don’t like venturing too far from their family, friends and creature comforts.

Destination: Italy is ideal for Cancerians, who love to travel with the whole family in tow. Hiking the Cinque Terre, enjoying a gondola ride in Venice, marvelling at the archaeological wonders of Pompeii, exploring the Amalfi Coast, experiencing spirituality in Vatican City, and learning how to cook the perfect pizza in Naples – there’s something for all ages in Italy.

Leo (23 July-22 August) – Hong Kong

Traits: Vivacious Leos like their experiences with a dash of drama. Wild spirits at heart, they are the life and soul of every party and crave memorable experiences wherever they go.

Destination: Multifaceted Hong Kong is a great match for Leos, who believe variety is the spice of life. From walking Buddha trails to enjoying panoramic city views from the Peak, relishing Michelin-starred dim sum, shopping for knick-knacks at the Temple Street Night Market and, of course, turning into a kid at Disneyland – a trip to Hong Kong will provide Leos with a treasure trove of exciting stories to tell.

Virgo (23 August-22 September) – Turkey

Traits: Virgos are detail-oriented and love to keep things organised. They rely on logic and analysis when planning a vacation and want to get the most out of every trip

Destination: Turkey’s diverse landscapes, transcontinental identity and a melting pot of cultures and cuisines will appeal to Virgos. Practical Virgos will feel satisfied they are getting the most out of their trip as they learn about the Byzantine empire in Istanbul, admire the Roman ruins in Ephesus, and take to the skies with a hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia.

Libra (23 September-22 October) – Sri Lanka

Traits: Perfectly balanced Libras are lovers of romance, peace and harmony and seek beauty wherever they go.

Destination: The teardrop island of Sri Lanka promises everything a Libra is looking for. Mesmerising history? Check. Monumental UNESCO World Heritage sites? Check. A jaw-dropping coastline and cuisine to die for? Check. Also known as the land of tea and spices, Sri Lanka offers the perfect balance of beauty, adventure and relaxation.

Scorpio (23 October-21 November) – India

Traits: Curious Scorpios are always on the hunt for new experiences that offer equal parts excitement and relaxation. Their quest for the unusual is what makes them unique.

Destination: The royal land of Rajasthan in India is a great choice for Scorpios. Whether it’s riding a camel, camping out in the desert, taking in the glory of the regal palaces and forts, shopping for trinkets, or getting a close look at wildlife – Rajasthan is a destination that has it all.

Sagittarius (22 November-21 December) – Egypt

Traits: Born travellers, Sagittarians are wired to seek out the most unique experiences. Explorers by nature, they are always full of thrilling travel tales.

Destination: What could be more unique and memorable than the land of the pharaohs? Marked by mystique, ancient sights and mesmerising natural beauty, Egypt is the ideal playground for Sagittarians. Cairo’s multicultural history, the Ancient Pyramids of Giza, Luxor’s age-old monuments, the eerie tombs in the Valley of Kings and the awe-inspiring Nile river all combine to keep the curious Sagittarius content

Capricorn 22 December-19 January) – Iceland

Traits: Goal-oriented and cautious, Capricorns have an eye for planning and detail and will make sure they tick every destination off their bucket list.

Destination: A land of contrasting landscapes, Iceland will intrigue Capricorns. A paradise for nature lovers, this breathtaking country is home to volcanoes, geothermal lakes, glaciers, national parks, underground ice caves, waterfalls and curious mythical tales of trolls and elves. It’s also one of the best places in the world for catching the Northern Lights – a must for any Capricorn’s bucket list.

Aquarius (20 January-18 February) – South America

Traits: One of the most fiercely independent signs, Aquarians prefer to stay off the beaten path. Highly creative, they crave exclusivity and one-off experiences.

Destination: South America is not for the average tourist – which is exactly why it’s perfect for Aquarians. From getting up close and personal with sea lions, giant tortoises and iguanas in the Galapagos Islands to getting drenched under the mighty Iguazu Falls, revisiting history at Machu Picchu and experiencing the harsh Atacama Desert – South America is full of once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Pisces (19 February-20 March) – Bali

Traits: A water sign, Pisces love connecting with the ocean and nature in general. Laidback and dreamy, they prioritise serenity and thrive in a naturally beautiful environment.

Destination: A spiritually evocative land, Bali is a tropical paradise with an endless coastline and shimmering beaches. Dotted with emerald-green rice fields, dark volcanic mountains, rocky cliffs and colourful temples, the island of Bali is where serenity resides, and Pisces will find their bliss.
