Up-and-Coming Holiday Destinations to Discover
Do you ever find yourself daydreaming about travelling back in time to discover a place before it became a tourist mecca? Imagine visiting Bali in the 1960s when it was all dirt roads and beach huts or Ibiza before all the nightclubs.
While the undiscovered beaches of Bali and Ibiza may be a time-travel fantasy, there’s good news. There are still many uncharted and emerging holiday destinations waiting to be explored.
In this blog post, we’ll take you on a journey to some of these up-and-coming holiday destinations, so if you’re asking, “Where should I go on holiday next?” you can be one of the first to discover their charms
Nestled in the heart of the Himalayas, Bhutan has become a top choice for travellers seeking sustainable and eco-friendly adventures.
This small kingdom boasts breathtaking landscapes, from snow-capped mountains to lush valleys. Bhutan is committed to carbon neutrality and is the only country in the world to measure its development by the Gross National Happiness Index.
The government enforces a “High Value, Low Impact” policy, which includes a daily tariff for tourists. This tariff covers essential services such as guides, transportation, and sustainable development initiatives. While it may deter mass tourism, it ensures that the environmental impact of visitors remains minimal.
Nestled in the heart of the Middle East, Jordan welcomes travellers with its enticing blend of ancient history, breathtaking landscapes, and warm hospitality.
From the awe-inspiring Petra, an archaeological wonder and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, to the well-preserved Roman city of Jerash, this underrated travel destination is a living testament to the rise and fall of empires.
The shores of the Dead Sea also offer a unique experience as you float effortlessly in the salt-laden waters, surrounded by dramatic desert scenery. This natural wonder, the lowest point on Earth, has been a source of healing and relaxation for millennia.
The Albanian Riviera boasts a coastline that stretches for over 250 kilometres along the Ionian Sea. Its beaches, with their powdery white sands and unbelievably clear waters, are the stuff of dreams and have earned it the title of “The Maldives of Europe.”
However, while the Maldives is often associated with luxury and exclusivity, Albania is one of the few beach holiday destinations that offers a more affordable alternative without compromising on the natural beauty. You can find boutique hotels, beachfront resorts, and charming guesthouses that cater to various budgets.
If you’re a nature enthusiast, Madagascar is a dream destination. Known for its extraordinary biodiversity, this island nation is home to lemurs, chameleons, and many other endemic species.
The iconic Avenue of the Baobabs is a natural wonder that seems straight out of a fantasy world. Towering, ancient baobab trees line a dirt road, creating a surreal and captivating landscape. These “African trees of life” are a symbol of Madagascar’s natural beauty.
Argentina, located in South America, is a captivating country known for its diverse landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and vibrant cities.
From the majestic Andes Mountains to the pristine wilderness of Patagonia, there’s a natural wonder for every traveller to explore.
The county is also a cultural melting pot with European, indigenous, and African influences. While Argentina’s European influence is most notably seen in its architecture and cafe culture, the African influence is most prominently felt in its music and dance.
The Faroe Islands
The Faroe Islands are an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark, but their remote location is approximately halfway between Iceland and Norway.
The Faroes are famous for their deep fjords, dramatic cliffs, and towering sea stacks. The islands offer a network of hiking trails that wind through remote valleys and lead to panoramic viewpoints.
The Faroe Islands offer two unique natural phenomena experiences. In the winter, you can witness the mesmerizing Northern Lights dancing across the Arctic skies. During the summer months, the islands are bathed in the soft glow of the Midnight Sun, providing endless daylight for exploration
