Pantone's release of their pick for colour of year for 2018 is ultra violet. The striking colour will slowly see its way through all things decor, stationery, home interiors and every instagrammable object you could imagine! Luckily for us, our main interest is travel planning.

So we searched far and wide, and picked our top list of locations around the globe where we think may have potentially inspired Pantone's decision.

The modern business capital of the South is home to a fantastic man made park, known as Gardens by the Bay. The super structures known as Super Trees are lit a brilliant violet at night time.

The Japanese hills transform into shibazakura, similar to moss-like cherry blossoms. The festival is held during Spring, and is a must-see if you're in planning a trip to Hokkaido, Japan.

4. Aurora Borealis, Stockholm, Sweden

See a whole range of colours from reds to purples, as light reaches through these monsoon water shaped formations. The spectacular natural sight is a sacred landmark for the Navajo tribes based in Arizona.
