Are you struggling to decide where to go for your next trip?
We’ve put together a list of top holiday destinations for 2019, including up-and-coming locations and a few places you may not have considered…
Botswana is an ideal destination for travellers wanting to get a taste of this incredible continent.
Famed for its magnificent wildlife and exclusive safaris, from the lush Okavango Delta to the Kalahari Desert, Botswana is the place for luxurious camping and outdoor safari adventure.
Considerably less hectic than its much larger neighbour India, Sri Lanka is fast becoming a new top choice for travellers in search of a more laid back south-east Asian adventure.
This little island is steeped in history and blessed with nature in abundance, as well as a population of very warm and welcoming locals.
It also offers up a wonderful mix of culture and spirituality. From the atmospheric Dambulla Buddha caves, to the cricket matches in Galle and Dutch colonial architecture of Colombo, this country has it all.
Not to mention the glorious beaches and lush rainforests.
Nestled right in the centre of Eastern Europe, Hungary offers up a fantastic array of cultural delights, not to mention some stunning architecture and delicious food and drink. It has everything from fairytale castles to majestic forests and an abundance of exquisite folk art.
Enjoy sipping on delectable local wines while marvelling at the diverse grandeur along the Danube, and relax and unwind in one of the many thermal spas.
The link between North and South America, Panama has seen huge revamps over the past few decades while remaining somewhat under the radar for tourists.
With its white-sand beaches, tropical rainforests and misty highlands, it packs an impressive amount of biodiversity into a relatively small space – all of which is celebrated at the colourful Biomuseo in Panama City.
2019 also marks the country’s 500-year history, so expect plenty of jubilees.
With its ancient mysticism, vibrant cities and diverse landscapes, Morocco offers up everything a traveller could wish for.
Better still is its close proximity to Europe – just a stone’s throw from Spain and a short flight from the UK and yet truly exotic in every sense of the word.
Whether you opt for a city break in the enchanting city of Marrakesh, a beach holiday in one of the many coastal towns, or an adventure across the desert into the arid Atlas Mountains, you can be sure to fall in love with the gateway to Africa.
