The old saying ‘life is too short’ can be seen as much of a true statement as well as a cliché, therefore you must make every experience count! Choosing where to travel to for your holidays can be a difficult task but thankfully we’ve provided a shortlist of 3 destinations that are all characteristically unique. From the green fields of Scotland, through to Asia and Africa, see what tickles your fancy and discover where your next adventure lies.
Spoil yourself to a holiday in a country that possesses arguably the most stunning scenery that this world has to offer. The South African landscape is one of the most diverse in the world, ranging from towering mountains, forests of luxuriant foliage and towering mountains, through to the traditional African subtropical regions. South Africa is equally blessed with the wonders of its wildlife that it proudly accommodates. Travel here with your friends or family to gain an insight into the country’s most iconic wildlife, that is sometimes referred to as the ‘The Big Five’ – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. Or perhaps if you are more of an adrenaline junkie, take the plunge and cage dive with great white sharks on the coast of Western Cape!
Vietnam’s striking landscapes has made it one of the most desirable countries in the world to visit. Towards the top of the country, experience the hustle and bustle of the more conservative and traditional Vietnamese city, Hanoi. The ancient capital provides tourists with a range of museums, pagodas and well preserved colonial buildings to visit.
North west of Hanoi, lies the more breath-taking Sapa valley. A mountainous region that promises to get under your skin with its carved picturesque valleys and iconic rice terraces that sit decorously on top of the hills. As well as its unique scenery, Sapa offers a number of cute small villages where you can enjoy the company of the region’s indigenous people.
Plunging yourself into a more chaotic environment, we take you to Ho Chi Minh City. Experience the beautiful madness of Vietnam’s biggest and busiest city, where you will inevitably meet an abundance of backpackers. In the city centre, District 1, is the main backpacker street that is known as Bui Vien. The street itself is a narrow one, that helps to encapsulate the relentless chaos created by its daring street performers, bustling tourists and cheap bars and restaurants. Indulge in a night that will live long in the memory in one of the fastest growing cities in the world.
Vietnam possesses an endless list of destinations worth visiting and so it can be a difficult task choosing on where to even begin. For a complete guideline on what this marvellous country has to offer, view Rough Guides.
Although it may not be as exposed as other tourist destinations in the UK, the number of tourists that Glasgow attracts each year is on the rise. The Scottish city is most famous for its inspiring architecture, entertainment scene, history and welcoming Glasweigan culture.
Explore the city centre with its Victorian and Gothic architecture designed by famous names such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh, wander around the shopping districts or hop on an open-top bus tour. Boasting a plethora of museums and art galleries where you can uncover more about this fascinating city, take time to visit the Riverside Museum, People’s Palace and the iconic Kelvingrove Art Gallery. Steeped in rich culture dating back centuries, Glasgow has grown around the River Clyde which stretches from the Clyde estuary out to Lanarkshire. Why not team a visit to Glasgow with seeing a concert or show at the world renowned SEC, or football game at one of the many adrenaline pumping football stadiums. We recommend staying in the Merchant City quarter with Fraser Hospitality.
