Picking a holiday destination can often be as stressful as closing your suitcase, rushing to the airport or figuring out the exchange rate. Take the hassle out of decision making with Culture Trip’s guide to finding the perfect destination for you next holiday based on your star sign.

Based on the main traits associated with the 12 signs of the zodiac, we’ve scoured the globe and found the ideal destination that will meet all your needs.

Aries: you’re an adventurous daredevil

(21 Mar – 20 Apr) It’s hard to keep an Aries in one place, and they are often leaders rather than followers. The best place to send you will have plenty of wide-open spaces and outdoor activities.

Calgary is filled with green spaces, ideal if you’re outdoorsy

Perfect destination: Calgary, Canada

Taurus: you’re warm-hearted and love security

(21 Apr – 20 May) Even though the symbol used for Taurus is a bull, the qualities you’re said to display include calmness and a need for meticulous planning. There’s also a willingness to pay for luxury, so perhaps one of the most expensive cities in the world is calling you?

Oslo might be expensive, but it’s also known for its friendly locals

Perfect destination: Oslo, Norway

Gemini: you’re communicative, lively and youthful

(21 May – 20 Jun) As the sign is depicted by a pair of twins, it figures that you don’t like to be alone. That’s OK, Culture Trip has found one of the busiest tourist destinations in the world. There’s also plenty to do here and centuries of history to learn about.

You’ll never run out of new things to discover in Florence

Perfect destination: Florence, Italy

Seoul runs like clockwork, but knows how to make time for beauty

Perfect destination: Seoul, South Korea

Libra: you’re romantic and charming

Paris overflows with elegance and charm, just like the Libra

Perfect destination: Paris, France

Scorpio: you’re powerful and passionate

(23 Oct – 22 Nov) Now for something a little more extreme. Scorpios don’t like to play it safe and usually like to test themselves. This destination is a perfect one to boast about when they get back home.

Munich is a little reserved, just like the Capricorn

Perfect destination: Munich, Germany

Aquarius: you’re inventive and humanitarian

(20 Jan – 19 Feb) You’re a people pleaser, and love the company of friends.

There is one, however, and it also happens to be one of the fastest-growing tech hubs in the world.
