With the Easter break fast approaching, it’s still not too late to plot an exotic escape.
With this in mind, we’ve picked out some exhilarating destinations to give you a little inspiration on where to go to escape the spring chill
Whatever kind of holiday you’re seeking, whether its action and adventure or beached-out bliss, Destination2 has handpicked only the best holiday hotspots.
For pristine white sands and a dash of partying (Easter time usually means thousands of students flocking to Cancun for Spring Break) then head to Mexico, where you can also find fascinating Mayan ruins and inspiring cenotes.
For well-seasoned travellers with itchy feet, we recommend the trip of a lifetime to the colourful, culture-soaked and captivating nation of Vietnam. A multi-centre holiday is perfect for the more adventurous as it means you can visit more than one place during your time in the country. There are bustling cities packed with the old and new, entire communities thriving atop rivers and enough beaches and jungle for everyone to explore.
It’s no secret that Dubai is the ultimate cosmopolitan city with the buzz of the future humming through its glittering streets. Wealth and grandeur are in excess in this vibrant hub of glitz and glamour, making it one of the most renowned shopping destinations in the world. Dubai even plays host to an annual shopping festival and its prestigious mall is home to over 1,200 shops. Dubai is therefore the place to be for designer deals and self-indulgent splurges.
Being a huge island split up into three countries, Borneo’s eastern Malaysian part is much less populated by tourists and perfect for those seeking some serenity. With beachfront spa resorts aplenty, stunning emerald waters, wildlife sanctuaries and breath-taking jungle, a holiday to Borneo has it all.
For manageable Middle Eastern heat that doesn’t have you ducking for shade, heading to Oman around Easter time is the perfect option for the sun worshipper. There are also plenty of activities, from dune bashing to stargazing and scuba diving in rare coral reefs, making Oman a once-in-a-lifetime destination.
