As a bright new year dawns it’s often the time we start making plans, promises and resolutions about what we hope to achieve, who we want to be and, importantly, where we want to go. With so many exciting destinations to choose from and great travel deals on offer, deciding on a destination can be one of the hardest parts of travelling. To help with the decision we’ve compiled a list of top holiday destinations for 2017.
If you’re looking for a destination that embraces its incredible natural landscapes, offers an amazing array of cultural experiences and trendy cities, you can’t go past Canada. Named the number one place to visit in 2017 by Lonely Planet, Canada boasts some of the best skiing, breath-taking national parks and, the most donut shops per capita in the world. It’s also celebrating its 150th birthday in 2017, with celebrations marking the country’s confederation planned throughout the year.
There’s no doubt 2016 was a highly-charged year in America, even by a New Yorker’s standards, but behind the political bravado lies one of the most incredibly diverse and exciting destinations in the world. From cafes in San Francisco, to sensational beaches in California, the must-visit buzz of New York City, the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon and the earthy, urban feel of Chicago there’s no end to the hidden gems scattered across all 52 states.
If you crave the sense of excitement and freedom of an overseas holiday, and want to discover new places, enjoy amazing food and world-class wine, if you have a desire to push yourself to extremes or you simply want to switch off, relax and connect with nature- New Zealand has all this and more just a few hours away. With skiing and hiking to rival the world’s best, gorgeous islands and inlets with vibrant communities to explore, and some of the best food and wine offerings, you’ll find plenty of reasons to explore New Zealand.
While European hotspots such as Croatia and the Greek Islands may have been ‘the place” to be in years gone by, travellers are increasingly forging a renewed love affair with the incredible food, vibrant culture and ancient history of South America. From exploring the Incan city of Machu Picchu in Peru to soaking in the nightlife in Brazil, taking a trip through the Amazon Rainforest or discovering the sights, sounds and flavours of Argentina- you’ll be hooked from the moment you arrive and be planning your next trip before you leave.
Rounding out our top five is one of the most exciting and increasingly popular destinations for holiday makers.
