Holidays: The World is Your Oyster

Lovely beach in the Dominican Republic

Thanks to the frequency of scheduled flights and the sheer number of tour operators providing holidays the world over, tourists have never had it so good. Jetting off to sunny climes or distant lands is now as easy as ordering a takeaway; just scour the web or pick up the phone and you could be in paradise tomorrow.

So where will you go? Will you plump for the sultry beats and powder-soft sands of the Caribbean – where you can book trips to Dominican Republic, enjoy a jaunt to Jamaica or explore the vibrant resorts and picture-postcard scenery of Mexico’s coastline?

Or if you prefer something closer to home, there’s a world of choice right on your doorstep. Spain has long been a haven for holidaying Brits seeking to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life in return for a week of sun, sea and sand. But away from the coast, this vast country is alive with a rich cultural heritage, spectacular architecture, craggy mountain ranges and sprawling vineyards – perfect for hikers and bikers of any age.

If you’re limited by a strict budget, there’s still plenty of choice on offer that means you won’t break the bank. For instance, cheap Malta package holidays are widely available and are not to be sniffed at. This glorious island, a colourful speck in the vast Mediterranean Sea, is awash with bubbly seaside resorts that sparkle with crystal clear waters, golden sands and Malta’s typically hot summer climate. Explore rugged hillsides zigzagged with walking routes, old crumbling forts and a rich military heritage that is marked with frequent parades and museum displays.

Whatever you fancy, there’s a world of choice just waiting to be discovered. The only thing left to do is to find your favourite.
