“Where do we go?” Well, you have the literally the whole world bar a few war torn places you might want to avoid. “Yeah, but where’s the most romantic?, the cheapest? the most indulgent? The best for relaxation? The best for culture?
Here are a few you might fancy, a few you might not.
Why go: Malta has always been affordable for us Brits, its not too far away at just over a three hour flight, out of season bargains are a must.
Where to stay: Hotel waterfront has sea views, is very affordable at just over £200 in the beautiful Sliema.
What to do: Malta has an Italian feel to it, strolls along the waterfront, go and see the blue caves, beware if your shopping as Malta has siesta early afternoon so the shops close.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia:
Why go: Look at it! It’s the stuff dreams are made of, there is no reason anybody would not want to go there. But luxury comes at a cost of course.
Where to stay: Four seasons is one of the best, around £600 per person per night then flights on top you better get saving.
What to do: Anything water based, laze on the beach topping up your tan, have a luxury massage then go for lobster lunch.
Why go: It’s romantic, it really is, the language, the food, the people, the buildings, you’ll fall in love with it all.
Where to stay: Hotel Excelsior, overlooking the harbour with it’s hillside location and around £600 per person per week half board it’s very good value.
What to do: Do what the Italian do, hire a scooter and whizz around the town, if that’s not your thing, then a lovely romantic dinner whilst organising your trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius.
Lady Elliot island and Uluru, Australia:
Why go: If you want to see thousands of marine fish, hundreds of sea birds on an island that only has a limit of only 140 people at any one time then this is the place.
Where to stay: The rooms are all the same, basic but adequate.
What to do: This is a snorklers paradise, situated on the barrier reef you’ll never want to leave.
