Top Summer Holiday Destinations

We are at that time of year again where fans of travelling and holidays abroad are getting ready for their next big trip, but what are the top holiday hotspots you should be heading for this summer?

Bordeaux

Bordeaux may not be the hottest place you can visit in France, but if you are a wine lover, it is definitely the happiest. Located right in the heart of France’s wine country, it is aiming to be seen as the world’s wine capital – starting with the launch of La Cite du Vin museum this summer. This details the history of this beverage around the world and will be the first port of call for many. Afterwards, you could always head off to the outskirts of the city, where numerous vineyards can be found.

Dublin

This is another city that is enjoying a big year in 2016, as it celebrates one hundred years since the Easter Rising. As a result, visitors can explore the Proclaiming a Republic exhibition in the city’s National Museum of Ireland, or take in the likes of Trinity College and Dublin Castle on the 1916 Rebellion Walking Tour. Aside from this, Dublin has superb nightlife and friendly people – even if hot weather is unlikely to be part of the plan.

Peru

This has been a popular choice among travelling fans for some time, but this year it has become easier to visit the ruins of Machu Picchu, thanks to direct flights to Lima from the UK becoming available. Peru offers ruins dating back to the pre-Inca period, as well as glorious examples of architecture and fascinating museums, while fans of partying will find clubs, splendid seafood restaurants, and great shops.

Elba Island

Located in Italy, this secluded spot is ideal for those who fancy spending the summer sunbathing. You can swim in beautiful blue ocean and lie on glorious golden sands, with the beaches considered to be among the cleanest and clearest you will find in the whole of Europe. Elba Island also has rugged rocks that you can explore, if you fancy doing something a little more energetic while you are there.

Macau

This Chinese island has rapidly emerged as one of the world’s big holiday destinations in recent years – with the hot climate being one reason for this, but certainly not the only one. Macau is home to several massive casino/hotels, including the Wynn Macau and the Venetian Macau. These have helped Macau make it a serious rival to Las Vegas when it comes to gambling holidays which more people are beginning to take thanks to the popularities of mobile casino. These casinos combine traditionally popular games like baccarat and blackjack with things like Fan Tan that are particular to the East, and also offer luxurious accommodation and mouth-watering Portuguese and Cantonese cuisine. All this makes Macau a perfect mix of sunshine and thrills.

As you can see, you really do have a spectacular choice when it comes to taking a trip abroad this summer – you just need to find your passport!
