In this month's MIG City Guide, we give you our must-stops in the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, which is slowly becoming one of the continent's most sought-after destinations. Bursting at the seams with culture, colour and cute cobbled streets, Lisbon is full of contradictions. Whether you're visiting for a weekend or longer, make sure you tick these off...
EXPLORE BAIRRO ALTO
Lisbon's bohemian quarter is full of its iconic trams, vibrant houses, narrow, hilly streets and endless cafes and restaurants. Go in the day for an Instagram-worthy shot and at night for an amazing buzz.
AFTERNOON DRINK AT PARK BAR
It's hard to come across a bad view in this picturesque town, but Park Bar's panoramic views of the river and the city take the cake. This place is best for a late afternoon stop and a tapas snack. The fruity sangria is also a no-brainer. Calcada do Combro 58, Lisbon 1200-115
DINE AT MINI BAR
Located in São Luiz Theatre, Mini Bar has an Art-Deco ambience and is owned by Lisbon's most celebrated chef, José Avillez. Food is served tapas-style, with a mandatory dish being the Algarve prawn ceviche served on a lime slice (below). R. António Maria Cardoso 58, Lisbon 1200-026
GO SURFING AT COSTA DA CAPARICA
A 30-minute drive from Lisbon is Portugal's stunning 30km Costa da Caparica strip. Casual and laidback, the Atlantic Coast's impressive waves make it one of the best places in the world to surf. (Or) you can just lay out on one of the many beach clubs and hop from one sand bar to the next.
ENJOY THE VIEW AT SILK CLUB
For dinner, drinks and dancing all in one place, Silk Lounge is hard to beat. The sushi is excellent, as are the mojitos, an with its romantic view of the city, you'll fall in love with the place a little bit more.
LISBON STYLE: COLOURS REIGN
Minimalism just isn't the way to go when it comes to dressing for exuberant Lisbon. The warm hues of our Palermo Backpack in Claret and our San Telmo Backpack in Tan, provide the right level of flamboyance.
