Top 10 Destinations To Visit In 2021 Part 1

2020 was a tumultuous year, to say the least when it comes to travel. The sudden breakout of COVID-19 quickly put a halt to holidaymakers plans and had us cramped up in lockdown rather than spreading our legs on sun loungers poolside. But 2021 is filled with hope, travel corridors, countries re-opening and new bargain deals to be snatched up in the travel resurgence.

However, travelling at times like this can be confusing so we're going to help clarify things for you by plucking the 5 top destinations to visit in 2021. We've considered the current and near-future logistics of travel to the country, so you can be confident booking knowing that this will be an awesome trip, not another cancelled disappointment.

1) Greece

For The Island Lovers: Greece is often looked at as a list of islands to sunbathe on, but there's so much more to this Mediterranean paradise. Athens, Europe's oldest capital, provides a spectacular string of ruins and archaeological monuments whilst Santorini cliff edged buildings of ivory, are the prized jewel in Greece’s mosaic of natural beauties. It's also one of the best value for money destinations in all of Europe and travel companies have been offering a number of mouth-watering offers that could save you some serious pennies.

2) Costa Rica

For The Outdoor Explorers: At the forefront of eco and adventure tourism, Costa Rica is one of the world’s most beautiful and biodiverse countries: A natural paradise of scenic valleys, striking volcanoes, stunning coastlines and luscious forests brimming with kaleidoscopic flora and fauna. It's now been open for tourism for several months and offers one of the most unspoilt slices of jungle imaginable, making it perfect for those who like to escape the city life and bathe in nature.

3) Egypt

For The Culture Vultures: From the Sphinx to the fertile banks of the River Nile, Egypt's long and storied history of hieroglyphics and pyramid building make it a must-visit for anyone with even a burgeoning interest in history and culture. Tick off one of the New 7 Wonders Of The World at the Great Pyramids of Giza, and couple that with a luxury cruise down the River Nile to unearth the ancient mysteries that lay in wait.

4) India

For Foodies & Adventurers: If variety is the spice of life, India is the masala of travel. The Taj Mahal is one of the 7 new wonders of the world, but among the embarrassment of riches in India, it's merely one of the hundreds of gems that must be explored to be appreciated.

The Golden Temple and Amer Fort push it for pure architectural perfection, whilst the Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh, the Kettuvallam boats in the backwaters of Kerala and the tea estates of Munnar vie for your attention as examples of natural splendour. All of that, without even considering the fact that it's home to Britains most heartfelt cuisine, a spicy indulgence of rich flavours and moreish nibbles that is worth the visit alone.

5) U.K

For Families & Variety: Without question, the most overlooked destination for holidaymakers is right here on our own doorstep. If the U.K's combination of heartwarming festivals, ancient history, architecture that tells the story of each passing century in incredible detail, rolling moors and misty highlands wasn't a splendid combination, it wouldn't have garnered the interest of over 37 million visitors in 2018.

Scotland regularly wins awards for being the most scenic country on Earth. England holds a sense of history, culture and sophistication have become so synonymous with the country that other cultures look this way as an example of what culture should look like. Wales is an ode to the past, where there seems to be a verdant string of hills around every corner.
