WINTER IS OVER.
… Well, in the Pantone world, anyway.
Just a few days ago, Pantone released its Spring 2018 Fashion Color Trend Report with 12 New York Fashion Week hues and four classic colours—and we’re super excited!
Could a new hue finally replace the overused Millennial Pink (Rose Quartz, Pantone Color of the Year 2016)? We don’t know, but inspired by Pantone’s palette, we’ve come up with some of the most Instagram-worthy destination recommendations, just for you.
8 PANTONE COLOURS, 8 DREAM HOLIDAYS
#1 SAND DUNES IN MUI NE, VIETNAM
Part of the classic palette, Pantone describes Warm Sand as a “comforting neutral shade that effortlessly connects the seasons”. The vast sand dunes of Mui Ne fit the bill perfectly then—you can visit this desert any time of the year! While you’re there, make sure you sand-board down the slopes, and visit the Fairy Stream.
#2 AUTUMN FOREST IN NAMI ISLAND, SOUTH KOREA
Described as a “bold and lively” & “confident and outgoing bright yellow shade”, you can find your perfect Meadowlark backdrop at Nami Island. Located about 1.5 hours away from Seoul, Nami Island (also called Namiseom Island) is a picturesque destination that’s perfect for day trips! The island is best known for being a filming site for hit K-Drama, Winter Sonata.

#3 GREAT OCEAN ROAD IN VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA
A favourite of children and adults alike, this versatile azure blue is “suggestive of expansiveness and continuity”. And when it comes to surreal and seemingly limitless landscapes, nothing beats the awe-inspiring coasts of the Great Ocean Road in Australia.

#4 LOTTE WORLD IN SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA
Slightly reminiscent of 2016’s Rose Quartz, Pantone describes Pink Lavender as “a soft and romantic violet rose that charms with its soothing sense of quiescence”. A whimsical wonderland is what comes to our minds, so hurry! Grab your loved ones and zip to the pink paradise, Lotte World.
#5 SHINTO TORII GATES IN JAPAN
This feisty orange-red “exudes heat and energy”, and “demands attention”! Just like these magnificent Torii gates of the Japanese Shinto religion: The bright-coloured monuments symbolise the gates between the spiritual and human realms.

#6 MT FUJI IN TOKYO, JAPAN
A “rich chocolate infused brown, Emperador adds strength and substance” to the palette. Such a regal-inspired name is truly befitting for Japan’s highest mountain, Mt Fuji. Standing at 3776m high and located along the borders of Yamanashi and Shizuoka, the massive volcano can be seen from several prefectures around it.
The snow-capped mountain is breathtaking from all angles, so take your pick from our selection of Mt Fuji Day Tours here.
#7 TEMPLE OF POSEIDON IN CAPE SOUNION, GREECE
It can’t always be bold reds and vibrant yellows, right? Representing “the classic mainstay of a white and/or off-white”, Coconut Milk is a must-have in every palette. Although a seemingly unexciting shade of cream, the historic Temple of Poseidon is anything but boring. The ancient structure sits precariously at the edge of a dramatic cliff, about 70km from Athens.

#8 FORBIDDEN CITY IN BEIJING, CHINA
With a name like “Chilli Oil”, we can’t help but think of our favourite Ma La Dried Chilli seasoning. Inspired by our love for the Chinese tongue-numbing spice, we bring to you the iconic Forbidden City of Beijing. In the Chinese tradition, red actually represents prosperity and wealth, which is probably why this lavish ancient palace is decked in the festive hue.
