Travelcromia: when Pantone chooses the travel’s shade!

Travelcromia: Pantone 2024

Do you want to start 2024 with a super cool trip to a destination that embodies the color of the year? We’re talking about “Peach Fuzz“, a delicate shade of peach chosen by Pantone!

But who is Pantone?!

It is an American company founded in the 1960s that deals with the cataloging of colors for graphics.
The Company has created a system, the “Pantone Matching System”. It is a sort of chromatic enceclopedia that gives each color a universal “name”, a code with numbers and words. Pantone is now a trendy icon concerning colours, so much so that every year it chooses the color of the year!

So here you are 5 definitely Peach Fuzz destinations to visit in 2024!

Arizona, United States

In an area known as Coyote Buttes North stands The Wave, the famous rocky wave dating back to the Jurassic. It’s in a desert environment characterized by shades of red and orange. To visit it you need to request a permit from the US Bureau of Land Management. It issues only 64 per day, of which 48 three months in advance and 16 one day before. There’s also an online lottery to try to get one of these last-minute entries.

If you don’t manage to be one of the lucky ones, you can still visit the Grand Canyon for your Peach Fuzz touch!

Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia

We are in southwestern Africa, in one of the largest and most fascinating national parks on earth, in a wildlife reserve with a great variety of species. But the real attraction here is the intense desert dunes’ orange, considered the oldest in the world. This nuance is due to the oxidation of the iron particles present in the sand. Oxidation increases as time passes and therefore the oldest dunes are those with the most intense colour.

The national park includes the Deadvlei area, the clay plain where the solitary silhouettes of acacia trees stand out. A super Instagrammed scenario that is difficult to forget!

Cappadocia, Türkiye

According to Pantone, each color is not just a color, but has very specific characteristics. Peach Fuzz is a warm color that “knows how to enrich body, mind and soul”. A combination that is perfectly captured in the emotions offered by an hot air balloon flight over the Fairy Chimneys in Cappadocia. If you are afraid of flying, you can walk along the route without having to give up the spectacle of the light. At dawn and at sunset, it illuminates the chimneys with a soft and warm pink hue!

The Pantone shade of the Sanctuary of Truth, Thailand

Pantone also claims that Peach Fuzz “combines the youthful and the timeless.” We therefore move to Pattaya, to the Sanctuary of Truth. The sacredness here pervades every corner of this structure, definable as a mèlange between a temple, a museum and a castle, which recalls traditional Thai and Khmer styles despite being much more recent.

It was the Thai billionaire Lek Viriyaphan who started the works in 1981, which will continue until 2025. The temple, made of teak wood, is built without the use of nails or modern metals, as dictated by the ancient local manufacturing techniques and it can already be visited.

It consists of four rooms dedicated to Thai, Khmer, Chinese and Indian religious iconography. Inside the temple the seven creative elements are represented: Sky, Earth, Father, Mother, Moon, Sun and Stars while outside the four elements that can lead to an ideal existence: Religion, Life, Philosophy immortal, Peace.

Jaipur, India

The “pink city” and capital of Rajasthan owes its name to the fact that many buildings are made of sandstone, a pink rock. The most beautiful architecture is Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds, built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh to allow the women of the royal family to look at the street below without being seen. The Palace is shaped like the crown of Krishna, the Hindu deity. It consists of five floors, 953 windows decorated with thick lattices and its shape resembles that of a beehive. And inside, marble, inlaid panels, water features and fountains give life to a magnificent micro-world.

And do you feel in line with the warm notes of Peach Fuzz?!
