Chart-topper Adele is set to tour Australia - and why not. Edreams.com has listed some reasons why you might consider going Down Under too.

1. Because the sunset over Ayers Rock (also known as Uluru) is an extraordinary experience;

2. Because Australia has more kangaroos than people;

3. Because it's the world capital of surfing (and surfing is way cool);

4. Because barbecuing is a real way of living;

5. Because Australia has beaches that look like they came straight out of a postcard;

6. To discover the incredible marine life of the Great Barrier Reef;

7. Because the Great Ocean Road is the most scenic route in the world.

8. For its delicious wines that make Dom Perignon jealous!;

9. To discover the fascinating Aboriginal culture.

And last but not least...

10. To enjoy the pool and sea together at Bondi Beach.

Tips for being stylish in the air

After packing a suitcase, the last thing you want to do is spend time worrying about what to wear on a plane. Instyle.com has some tips for looking good in the air.

1. Wear pants that have some stretch; a black ankle-length skinny pant, jeans in a simple dark wash, a riding pant, or substantial leggings.

2. Choose a "boyfriend cardigan" or tunic-length pullover sweater in light-weight wool or cashmere. It should be long enough to cover your bottom, especially if you are wearing leggings.

3. Underneath, wear a loose cotton T-shirt or shirt with a shirt-tail hem (longer in the back). If the cabin is overheated, you can take off the sweater and still look great.

4. When it comes to coats, you might consider a waterproof trench or puffer coat, depending on where you are travelling to. A lightweight puffer rolls up to serve double-duty as a pillow.

5. An oversize cashmere or fine-gauge wool scarf pulls the look together. It can be used as a blanket during the flight (or worn as a wrap over a cocktail dress when you've reached your destination).

Hook up with this hip device

The Airhook is a small plastic device that hooks on to the tray table of the seat in front of you on a plane - giving you somewhere to put things without having to lower the table.

It consists of a hook, a cup holder and a clamp that can hold a variety of tablets or smartphones. So without lowering the tray table, and making the little leg room you have on a plane even smaller, you have somewhere to put a drink, and a clamp to support phones and tablets up to 8.5 inches tall. theairhook.com
