What can help make the deciding process a little easier, is knowing what’s happening in countries around the world. From art exhibitions and festivals to museum openings and thrill-seeking excursions, many holiday destinations have a lot to offer – and if you pick the right time of the year, you might be able to further enrich your experience by taking in some of their cultural offerings.
To discover the best things to do across the world, Time Out compiled a list of key things to visit and take part in both abroad and on home soil.
The list, which takes advice from local experts on unique experiences, found Paris’ urban farms were the best thing to check out this year.
Celebrating the future of agriculture, Paris’s historic Porte de Versailles exhibition centre will host the biggest rooftop farm in the world on May 1. The social enterprise will host workshops and supply produce to nearby businesses and food schemes.
According to Time Out, the farm is run by urban farming experts Agripolis and is expected to yield a daily harvest of nearly 1,000 organic fruits and vegetables.

The Edge will open in March and provide panoramic views of the entire city. The 1,131-foot-high-observation deck makes this the tallest man-made viewing platform in the western hemisphere.
