Top Destinations for 2011

If you didn’t make these top 10 destinations in 2010 … do it in 2011

By Wexas – The Travellers Club

One thing’s for certain though, the best prices in 2010 will go to those who book early; airlines and tour operators have reduced capacity, so there’ll be far fewer last-minute offers up for grabs.

It could also be a good year for getting off the beaten track, especially if the Euro remains as strong as it has been. From small-group adventures to rainforest hideaways, new travel possibilities are emerging in the unlikeliest of corners.

To help fire your imagination, our travel experts have compiled a
Top 10 Destinations To Look Out For In 2010

1. KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
The World Cup is not the only game afoot in South Africa next year. Head to KwaZulu-Natal to spot lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, rhino and more.

2. Iceland
Want to be awed by Europe’s largest national park and most powerful waterfall? Iceland will be more affordable than ever in 2010.

3. Big Island, Hawaii, USA
Look beyond the package deals to the Hawaiian islands’ most authentic destination – Big Island – and stare in wonder at an erupting volcano.

4. Arctic Sweden
Sweden’s original Icehotel turns 20 in 2010. March is a great time to celebrate – longer days and a good chance of spotting the Northern Lights.

5. Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
When development is planned wisely, the UAE can be as culturally en vogue as it can be ostentatious, as the Louvre Abu Dhabi is about to prove.

6. Damascus, Syria
How about a spring break in Syria? Ancient Damascus is an extraordinary city of all-dispensing souks, medieval bathhouses and everyday miracles.

7. Colombia
Highlights of Latin America’s fastest-emerging country include the reef and rainforest of Tayrona National Park and the UNESCO city of Cartagena.

8. Yucatan, Mexico
Discover a new side to Mexico with a stay in one of the Yucatan’s beautiful haciendas – colonial plantation buildings renovated into boutique hotels.

9. Tiger Safaris, Madhya Pradesh, India
Follow in the footsteps of Kipling in the luxury lodges of Madhya Pradesh. A tiger safari will easily fit into a tailor-made tour of India’s usual suspects.

10. Aitutaki, Cook Islands
Blissfully remote and breathtakingly beautiful, Aitutaki is the belle of the Pacific and makes a wonderful extension to a holiday Down Under.
