What is the first thing you notice when you see a building? Is it the façade or the colours, or is it the shapes, columns, arches, lines and other fine details? If your answer is the latter, you will certainly like the company of the folks at World Architecture Travel (WAT), an international network for architectural tours. Their extensive itineraries include in-depth exploration of the history and design of prominent architectural marvels. Their next tour is a visit to Mexico between October 28 and November 10 this year, and includes travel, stay in premium hotels, food and beverages, and expert guidance. The programme includes visits to prominent attractions such as Chichen Itza, Cuernavaca, Mérida, Tulum ruins (pic above) and Puebla. The 13-night tour features highly-specialised explorations, interactions and lectures. The trip costs 250,000 per person; worldarchitecturetravel.com
