When trying to pinpoint particular destinations across the world that are worth visiting, it’s incredibly difficult to pick just one – especially when the Earth is full of amazing places that should all be seen, if we’re lucky enough to have the opportunity. With a myriad of luxury holidays with Elegant Resorts, the possibility to tick a few places off your list is even more real, with these five being must-visits.
South America – Peru
Rich in history, owing largely to the Incan civilisation that once resided there, it’s understandable that Peru is on many a must-see list. Trek into the jungle, along the authentic Inca Trail, where you’ll see the iconic Machu Picchu come into view – simply breathtaking.
North America – The Caribbean
OK, so the Caribbean may not be considered to be one destination – moreover, a collection of various destinations and resorts – but, as a whole, it is a hotbed of relaxation, tranquillity and once in a lifetime experiences. From the excellent diving opportunities in the Cayman Islands to the vibrant culture and laidback lifestyle that await in Jamaica and Barbados, there’s bound to be an island to make your holiday dreams come true.
Asia – Thailand
While Thailand certainly isn’t the only place in Asia worth a mention, it’s a fabulous base for much of the adventure. Ride elephants through the jungle, chill out on the unspoilt beaches or head into Bangkok for a chance to appreciate the hustle and bustle of this cultural city – the choice is yours.
Africa – Rwanda
Situated in the heart of Africa, Rwanda’s troublesome past has long gone and, nowadays, offers visitors the rare chance to see gorillas in the wild. Africa, as a whole, is a melting pot of culture and natural beauty, and a Rwandan adventure would be simply out of this world. Gorilla treks will allow you to see the majestic silverback in his natural home, providing a simply unforgettable experience for all.
Australasia – New Zealand
It would be easy to gravitate towards Australia and, let’s be fair, the adventure to be had in this vast country is never-ending. However, don’t forget that New Zealand is part of this continent too and, with its phenomenal landscapes and incredible adventures, it’s well worth a mention.
If you’re a dreamer and yearn to travel the world, what’s stopping you? Break your adventure down into manageable chunks and the world can be your oyster.
