The best holiday destinations worldwide

It’s not where you’re from, it’s where you’re going. What kind of adventure are you looking for? Maybe you want the thrill of a hiking trip in the Swiss Alps. Perhaps a stroll through the boisterous streets of Naples is more your style. Or possibly you prefer to lay on the famous beaches of beautiful Bali. No matter your destination, we have the best in-depth guides to help you make the most of your trip.

The diversity of European destinations can make it hard to imagine why you’d want to travel anywhere else. Choose from some of the world’s best city break locales, whether you’re soaking in the thermal baths of Budapest, exploring the canals of Amsterdam or restaurant hopping in Paris.

Feel more like a beach holiday? Hop on a plane to the reliably sunny Canary Islands or try the gorgeous Greek island of Santorini. Even the UK has become a top holiday destination for its own residents and particularly popular for group getaways, with cozy bed-and-breakfasts, beautiful coastal towns and hiker-friendly national parks enticing travellers to stay closer to home.

Adventures in Asia

While Asia’s top destinations may be a bit further afield than a European holiday, there’s a reason people brave the long flights. Travellers head to Bali and the Maldives to relax on pristine white-sand beaches, enjoy the warm weather and try out water sports like snorkelling and scuba diving.

Adventure travellers and party-goers alike will find plenty to do in Thailand, from long hikes through the jungle to the raging Full Moon Party. Asia is also a great place for solo travellers, whether it's your first trip or you're a seasoned expert.

Holidays in Africa

If you’re looking for variety, a holiday in Africa has it in spades. Head to the southern countries to see wildlife up close on a safari, gaze at the pyramids on a trip to Egypt, or check out ultra cool cities like Nairobi, Cape Town, and Addis Ababa. While Africa might not be your initial thought for a beach holiday, places like Cape Verde, the island country near the Senegalese coast, offer miles of warm, sandy beaches perfect for a relaxing getaway.
