The Ultimate Guide to Holidays 2018

You may have some idea of where you will be spending your holidays this year, but you may still be trying to narrow down your choices.

Where do you go? What do you see? When do you go? Plan your holidays 2018 with the help of these tips:

Where to travel

This will come down to what you hope to get from your holidays. If you are starting to think about your annual family holiday, you will look for kid-friendly resorts and rewarding destinations that offer a wide variety of things to do for the entire family.

If you are planning a honeymoon or a romantic break, you will look for adult-only resorts that cater to couples. If you are seeking adventure, you may look for destinations that offer excellent hiking, scuba diving, adventure sports and other fun activities. If you’re hoping to relax, you will look for destinations that give you plenty of chance to lie on a sun-drenched beach with not much to do aside from pampering spa treatments and swimming. As such, the first step should be to think about what you most want from your holidays. This will make it easier to decide where to take your holiday.

What to see

Do you have a travel bucket list? If not, this can be a great way to plan your getaway.

To get started, think about the things that you have always wanted to see. It could be the Disney castle in the USA, the Seven Coloured Earths in Mauritius, a spice market in Zanzibar, a picture-perfect lagoon in the Maldives, a remote island in the Seychelles, a Buddhist temple in Thailand, a snow-covered mountain in France or something completely different. Once you have a landmark in mind, you can start working towards your dream of seeing it in person. This can be another fun way to choose your dream destination.

When to go

Ultimately, the best time to go will differ for each destination.

Once you know where you want to go, it will be easier to decide when to go. Depending on whether you are planning a tropical getaway or a wintery escape, seasons will depend largely on the climate of your chosen destination. Tropical islands typically have wet and dry seasons, with the wet seasons bringing tropical storms and the dry seasons offering ideal beach weather. In the northern hemisphere, Disney World is often best during the mid seasons, which offer milder weather and fewer crowds. Ski destinations are typically best during the peak of winter, from December to February.

Whatever you plan to do for your holidays 2018, we hope that this year brings plenty of incredible travel adventures!
