What do you want from a holiday in 2017? If you’re anything like us, then you’ll have a bucket list full of destinations that you’re wanting to tick off, and there’s no better time to start it than this coming year. If you’re stuck for inspiration on what to place at the top of your list then look no further… here we run through a few of the top holiday destinations to head to in 2017.

Long Haul

If you like to go somewhere a bit further on your travels than Europe, then we have these excellent recommendations. In 2017, tropical climates and those places a little less travelled and a little more off the beaten track are the ideal places to explore and get lost in.

Guatemala is certainly a destination that has yet to be discovered by a lot of people, perfect if you like to be ahead of the masses, and for those that want to enjoy stunning views unspoilt by an abundance of tourists. Don’t miss Lake Atilan – surrounded by volcanoes and small villages, it’s a must see!

Australia’s closest neighbour, Papua New-Guinea has so much to offer the intrepid explorer in 2017, including the famous Mask Festival in Kokopo, which is scheduled for July and is set to be one of the most popular events of the year.

City Break

Some of the best holidays are the shorter, jam-packed full of things-to-do, city breaks. And in 2017, you won’t be short of new cities to find and explore: whether you’re going solo, with friends or with a partner, city breaks offer some of the best value for money travel destinations.

George Ezra sung about Budapest, a hidden treasure chest with a beautiful Castle, and we can assure you – it is beautiful. A destination that can be explored all year around, with warm temperatures perfect for summer wandering, whilst in winter getting wrapped up and exploring the Christmas Markets should definitely be up there on your list of activities. We highly recommend taking a dip in the famous Szechenyi baths too, the 34+ degree heat of the water will keep you warm whatever the temperature outside.

The city that never sleeps, New York is the perfect destination for those wanting to explore the bright lights and never-ending shopping and party districts. Central Park is one must-see for any visit to New York, whilst the captivating and incredibly poignant site of Ground Zero has been transformed into a memorial worthy of a visit.
