Luxury has not been a word that many people have heard a lot over the past few years. Many people have been too focussed on making it through the day-to-day and staying strong for their friends and family to consider indulging in life’s luxuries. Thankfully, now that the world has opened up its arms to travellers from different nations once more, and life feels a little less constrained, booking a private jet charter and flitting off to some far-flung, fun location across the globe is back on the menu.
With so many delicious options to choose from, where does one even start? Well, we’ve put together a tasting menu of the top ten most exciting destinations across the world. If you’re lucky, you might get to try a little of this and a little of that and experience some of the most incredible destinations that the world has to offer.
New Zealand’s South Island
New Zealand is one of the most underrated holiday destinations on the planet, particularly the South Island. There really is something here for every kind of tourist: wildlife experiences, natural beauty, wine tasting, adventure outings: take your pick. Marlborough offers fjords worthy of a Nordic destination; the West Coast takes you through diamond-like glacial valleys, and Southland offers coastal scenes like no others.
Ditch the jumpers and sweats and head to Thailand instead. Lush green forests and jungles, exquisite white sand beaches, and rippling water stretched all the way to the horizon. Travelling through Thailand is an exotic experience of Asian culture and cuisine that will take your senses on an incredible ride. See wildlife in its natural habitat, take a trip to one of the many markets for a taste of authentic Thai street food and embrace the full moon at a beach party.
Did someone order crystal blue waters and early morning kayak trips? Coming right up! The Maldives is a remarkably romantic destination, so it’s a great choice if you’re travelling for your honeymoon or anniversary. The seclusion of the Maldives makes for a relaxing holiday. Sleep in late in your beach villa, go scuba diving or kayaking by day and watch the stars from the beach by night.
The Great Pyramids are something you simply must see in person to appreciate fully. There is nothing like the majesty of those stone structures soaring into the sky to inspire more wanderlust! Egyptian culture is ancient and intricate, and the artifacts of their civilization are something truly incredible. Check out beach resorts on the coast, visit the Egyptian Museum and the Sphinx in Cairo, see the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, and take in the sensory overload.
Though Norway makes you think of freezing waters and icy temperatures, there’s a range of travel options for those who love the sun AND snow. Take a scenic trip along the Fjords by road or through them by boat and see what the ancient Northmen saw. Go old school and take a train trip through some of the county’s most stunning natural locations. The land of the midnight sun awaits you!
Yellowstone National Park in the USA
Visiting the world’s very first national park is an excellent way to experience the great outdoors in the heart of the USA. Yellowstone offers incredible hiking, biking, camping, and exploring opportunities for those who love the great outdoors. Stretching over 2.2 million acres and several states, Yellowstone is saturated with incredible natural beauty: lakes, canyons, rivers, forests: Yellowstone has it all!
The wild moors, desolate beaches, and iron-grey waters of Ireland beckon travellers who love to walk and breathe in the sea air. Though the rain comes down year-round, Ireland’s weather is temperate most of the year, except for the cold winters. Road tripping is an exciting and relaxed way to see the country. As well as cost-effective! Try out Dublin city life, visit Galway for a dose of nature and take in the rich culture all around you.
Cape Town, South Africa
A jewel in the crown of the African continent, Cape Town sits on Africa’s southernmost point. The travel and excursion options are endless! Take a road trip through the Winelands and taste some of the finest wines in the Southern Hemisphere (but remember to have a designated sober driver!). You could treat yourself to fine cuisine in the city bowl or take a cable car up Table Mountain for an unparalleled view of the city.
What better place to experience Asian tradition and cuisine than Japan. Steeped in ancient traditions and culture, Japan is a traveller’s paradise. If you’re a foodie, this is the ultimate destination for you: the variations in Japanese cuisine are many, and all of them are delicious in different ways. We recommend that you start your foodie journey in Tokyo and end in Kyoto. The foods in the regions you’ll encounter are often made the same way they have been made for generations!
Tuscany in Italy
Another food lover’s paradise! Rolling hills crisscrossed with grapevines, rustic farmhouses, pasta, and good wine by the barrel. We advise that you take the road less traveled and visit the small towns instead of just sticking to the big cities. Life in Tuscany is slow and delicious: appreciate every moment of it.
