One of the best things about choosing a holiday is deciding where to go. Will you travel near, far or somewhere in-between? Some holidaymakers have a clear idea of where they want to go, and will happily go back to the same place time after time. Others like to try somewhere new and enjoy a voyage of discovery every summer. Still, more use their summer holiday as an opportunity to travel the world, one week at a time.
If you’re planning something a little exotic this year, you’ll find plenty of options. There are the lovely Balearic Islands, the sun-baked golden sands of Portugal’s Algarve, the many different faces of Greece, and so much more.
Malta is one holiday hotspot that never fails to impress, and what this little island lacks in size it certainly makes up for in character. From luxury getaways to cheap Malta package holidays, there is always something to suit every holiday wishlist.
It is home to lively Bugibba, with its family friendly hotels and bustling nightlife. There’s laid-back Sliema that’s perfect for a relaxing stay in tranquil surroundings. Or there’s fabulous Valletta — a historic town that is bubbling over with incredible sights and more than its fair share of ancient monuments.
Or if you fancy something a little closer to home this year, why not consider the Dominican Republic? This lovely Caribbean island is home to some of the best beaches you will ever clap eyes on. Think long swathes of white powder-soft sands that melt into sparkling waters. Palm trees nodding gently in the breeze. The slow, rhythmic ‘whoosh’ of pristine shores that break lazily onto the sand. It’s paradise found.
Away from the beach, the Dominican Republic is home to a collection of fantastic resorts with top-notch hotels serving up mouth-watering cuisine and attentive service. It’s certainly the stuff that dreams are made of.
When it comes to choosing a holiday, you’ll be bowled over with choice. So where will 2013 take you?
