Holiday hotspot

Anubrata Chatterjee, musician

I have several dream destinations. I’m looking forward to visiting Japan in September this year for a music concert. I have heard a lot of good things about the country and so I’m very excited. Unfortunately, when on a music concert tour, I hardly get time for local sightseeing. But I managed to do so in Cape Town last year. I went on a concert tour to three places — Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg and managed to catch a glimpse of the major cultural happenings in these places. I’m also a beach person, so Indonesia tops my list of favourite holiday destinations. When in a beach town, I love to go swimming or just hang around on the beach. I also love to sample local food and interact with locals to know more about the place.
