5 hottest summer holiday destinations for 2019
Sit tight, summer IS coming. What better way to get excited about summer than to start planning your summer holiday?! To inspire you, here's our top five suggestions of places to visit in 2019.
1. The Pelopennesse, Greece
This is the up and coming holiday destination in Greece, so it's busy for not as crowded as the popular islands that Brits have been flocking to for years. Think miles of pristine white sand dunes, and Mediterranean charm. This is a quieter corner of Greece where you can simply relax, unwind, and enjoy a bit of culture and good food.
In 2019, Panama City will mark its 500-year history with a huge party. Panama may be a small country, but it has miles of white sand beaches, tropical rainforests, and misty highlands to explore as you learn about the indigenous culture.
Head to Belarus this summer for a cool art scene and hip cafes by day, and partying in bierstubes and fashionable cocktail bars by night. Summer is the best time to visit for more mild temperatures that us Brits can handle.
4. Tohoku, Japan
Indulge in Japanese culture in the lesser known region of Tohoku. 90 minutes north-east of Tokyo, Tohoku offers incredibly varied natural landscapes perfect for hiking. Visit in August for the famous Amori Nebuta Festival, uring which bamboo floats are constructed with paper depicting mythical gods, creatures, and kabuki characters.
5. Otago, New Zealand
Prepare to be amazing by the natural beauty of New Zealand. Home to glacial highlands and sunken valleys, visitors should take in the best of the island's Southern Alps region for hiking, biking and sleeping in remote luxury accommodations.
