Look out for package deals that are expected to be available soon to Sweden, whose capital, Stockholm, held the title 'Cultural Capital of Europe' last year. Sweden's Consul in Hong Kong, Ann Arefeldt, tells me Stockholm broke all records in 1998, with a 10 per cent increase in domestic tourists, and a six per cent increase in international arrivals. Most visitors arrive in the summer months, but this land of lakes does have some interesting winter attractions, such as dogsledding, and of course the Northern Lights.
