Overshadowed by its Indian and Maldivian neighbours, Sri Lanka is often overlooked when considering the Indian Ocean as a holiday destination. However, as one of the least developed countries in the area, Sri Lanka offers an unspoiled paradise although the capitol is currently undergoing a cosmopolitan make over. The tropical island is affordable, quiet and waiting to be explored – perfect for those looking to lose themselves, those who enjoy surfing and, with a number of great ruins to explore, those interested in history.
Australia’s Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most well known examples of marine life, however, the area is currently battling problems with bleaching and many activists are worried that the reef will continue to decline. The current situation – in addition to the release of David Attenborough’s latest documentary filmed on the reef – has meant that the location has become a prime hotspot for 2016, with many travellers not wanting to miss out on the one of the most famous natural wonders of the world.
USA National Parks
The USA is famous for its large cities such as, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle. However, the country is also home to some of the most popular National Parks in the world – each of them offering a diverse area of protected natural beauty. 2016 marks the 100th birthday of the US National Park Service making it a great year to visit some of the country’s most famed beauty spots and enjoy the centenary events. Popular favourite locations include the Grand Canyon National Park, Redwood National and State Parks and the Yellowstone National Park.
Located in the Pacific Ocean, the island chain is often referred to as the “underwater Serengeti” due to its incredible snorkelling and diving opportunities which are considered some of the best in the world. Conservation is important to the islands and the fear of rising sea levels has made them regional leaders in this field. The area is a showcase of natural beauty and offers a true desert island experience to all those who visit.
The recent popularity with British tourists has opened up a number of direct flights to Cancun and Puerto Vallarta – popular vacation spots on the Caribbean and Pacific coasts. Mexico is a diverse country offering a range of holiday experiences from luxury beach front villas to laid back camp sites and cultural city breaks to adventure holidays in the jungle. 2015 was the Dual Year between Mexico and Great Britain and the link between the two countries remains strong, making it the perfect holiday destination for those looking for a tropical getaway in 2016.
