Venice is well-established as one of the world’s must-see cities, with its fascinating history, charming lack of roads and luxurious gondolas. Unfortunately, well-established must-see cities are not known for their modesty, and when it comes to budget travel, Venice presents a bit of a challenge due to its often fantastical prices during high season.

South Africa is becoming more and more popular as a tourist destination, with many visitors now taking advantage or relatively cheap prices and accommodation. Whilst there you can get the most from your vacation and see much more of this beautiful country if you hire a car.

While the so-called ‘Mother City’ is not usually synonymous with game viewing, Cape Town safaris show an entirely different side to the city.

However, your mortgage doesn’t have to be a stumbling block when it comes to booking a luxury weekend away – in fact, it can very much work in your favour. By Katie Sykes.

Tropical beach paradises don’t come much better than the Caribbean. This sweeping archipelago of more than 7,000 islands and islets is what many people describe as paradise on earth. It’s not hard to see why…

Yalta in the Ukraine has turned into a modern-day luxurious retreat for travelers looking to escape the doldrums of day-to-day life. Not only will you be drawn in by the beautiful surroundings, but also be tempted to take part in many of the one of the kind activities you’re not likely to do again in this lifetime. Guest post by Andy Johnson.

When snow falls and stays for a while, we call it a winter wonderland. It usually brings with it enormous inconvenience (if you live in Britain), but it’s okay because everything looks nice. There is a place in the world where winter really is a wonderland and a large amount of snow is not inconvenient. It’s also where Santa Claus comes from. It’s Lapland.

We all want a break from our busy and monotonous routine life. Planning for a vacation with family members will surely bust the work stress and will give your children a break from studies. Siting in the lap of nature for a while will help you in getting rid of all tensions and worries of everyday life. Though staycations are in vogue but they are not a good alternative to a traveling vacation. Canada has always been one of the most preferred holiday destinations of the tourists from all over the world.
