So, it’s New Year time once again and it’s time to do something exotic to mark the start of a 2019! As the dark nights are in full swing, treat yourself and book something exotic to look forward to.
Travel around India
From the mighty Himalayas in the north, to the enchanting oceans in the south, India has it all! With the Rann of Kutch in the West and the seven sister states of the East, the backwaters of Kerala in the south, the sand dunes of the desert in Rajasthan, the deepest forests that come with a wide range of flora and fauna, the temples, archaeological, historical wonders, India reveals its enchanting world of splendour for its visitors.
If you have love for mountains, you can visit the Himalayans for a mountainous trek through the valleys, by the rivers and lakes, overlooking the snow capped peaks and ranges, to the world of serenity and tranquillity. Again, if you are more tilted towards seas, then the beaches of Goa and south India, and the western coasts will be ideal for you. Also, do not miss out the historical monuments, the jungles and other diversities across this subcontinent. I would recommend that the best way to travel through India and truly immerse yourself in the culture is to book onto a tour so that you don’t miss out on a single experience.
Go to the Seychelles
Home to the giant Aldabra tortoises, Seychelles another perfect destination for you to visit in 2019. There are so many things to do in this magnificent island country. Places you can visit include the Coco Island, Big Sister’s Private Island, Curieuse Islands, Moyenne Island, and many more. Another unique attraction of this place is the mountain rainforest of Morne Seychellois National Park.
Take a tour of Sri Lanka
Then there is Sri Lanka. There are so many things to do there! With a wide range of flora and fauna and unscathed natural beauty, with hills and valleys and splendid beaches, this country is a paradise for every visitor. Visit the Galle Fort, the splendid Viharamahadevi Park, Gangaramaya Temple, the Floating Market in Pettah, get the feel of the buzzing nightlife in Colombo – the country’s capital, experience a thrill with your favourite water sports, visit Kandi, the Temple of Tooth Relic, the Seetha Amman Temple and also, do not forget to take the famous Sri Lankan Tea Factory Tour! Sri Lanka makes for the perfect backpacking location and also meets the requirements of the older traveller as it has so much to offer.
Go to the Maldives
You can go beyond the Indian landmass and visit the Maldives to enjoy the sun and the turquoise beaches on offer. Whilst there, you can go for scuba diving and can also opt for snorkelling. There is also the excellent opportunity to indulge in some dolphin spotting and spending leisure time on the white sands of the iconic pristine beaches. Just go for hopping from one island to another and explore some of the stunning accommodation available through the islands.
Visit Crete in Greece
This is the biggest Greek Island and is considered to be the legendary birthplace of Greek God Zeus. The place is home to mesmerising fishing villages and fascinating medieval ruins, set against a quiet countryside. Add to this the affordable villas, hotels and rental, and you have a complete paradise for tourists. You must also be sure to taste the Cretan cuisine, sourced from local fishing and farming communities.
So, open your laptop and start planning your 2019 adventure!
