Holidays to Asia

While you may have to contend with longer flight times to get to Asia’s top destinations, there's a reason that this part of the world is one of the most popular holiday spots, especially for solo travellers and couples. What's not to love? There are pristine white-sand beaches, chances to enjoy consistently warm weather, ancient cities and temples, and the opportunity to try out water sports like snorkelling and scuba diving.

Adventure travellers and partygoers alike will find plenty to do in Thailand, from long hikes through the jungle to the raging Full Moon parties, while Vietnam and Cambodia are great places to learn about local culture - and eat delicious food. For a beach vibe like no other, Bali and the Maldives should be on everyone's holiday bucket list!

Holidays in Africa

If you’re looking for a trip that's packed with variety, a holiday to Africa has this in spades.

Head south for the opportunity to see wildlife up close on a safari and to check out ultra-cool cities like Cape Town, Nairobi, Swakopmund and Lusaka. If the north is calling your name, you can gaze at the pyramids on a trip to Egypt, browse the sprawling markets of Morocco or take in one of the fascinating central countries like Ethiopia.

And while Africa might not automatically spring to mind as a beach holiday destination, places like Cape Verde - an island country off the Senegalese coast - offer miles of sandy beaches, perfect for a relaxing getaway.
