Best Holiday Destinations
What makes some destinations the best choice for a holiday?

What makes a holiday destination the best for you ultimately comes down to personal taste. However. There are seven important factors I personally believe need to be considered. When searching for the best holiday destinations that your personal budget will allow.

Value for money

This goes without saying. Many destinations are tourist traps and that means you're often overcharged. Disappointed by false the reality of the destinations. Creating possible holiday blues. To stop this happening. Read my travel post on avoiding tourist traps at the following link :

Carefully consider the cost of the holiday destinations you're considering. Always add on a few extra hundred bucks to your estimated budget. To help avoid any nasty surprises. Ensuring you can truly have the best holiday. 


If you're looking to travel to one of the best holiday destinations in the world. Carefully check that holiday destinations you have in mind. Provide all the amenities of importance to you. Don't just go by old reviews. Try to call or email to double check the facilities ahead of time. 


The importance of comfort depends on the holiday destinations you have in mind. Comfort looks different depending on your choice of activities and sleeping arrangements. Will you be planning a hikers camping holiday. Or luxury beach destinations? Are you going for budget. Or luxury? Or maybe the best of both?


I would encourage anyone planning a holiday to include some unique natural wonders or impressive views. This is what makes for an unforgettable. Less than average holiday experience. A holiday destination is hardly ever in league with the best. Without the addition of some breathtaking scenery!

The inclusion of activities. Or excursions that will keep you entertained on holiday are not to be overlooked. Try to push yourself to do something different. It doesn't have to be anything dangerous, or intense like extreme sports! Even something just a little out of the ordinary, will get your heart racing with excitement. Increase dopamine through laughter by not taking yourself too seriously. Or feel a sense of achievement when you successfully try something new. It will be a moment you'll never forget.


This is where you really need to check the reviews on google maps. Travel and excursion websites and travel blogs. Get an idea for the quality of service received in different holiday destinations. As you may be surprised, by how much the treatment from staff. And friendliness of locals will impact your holiday experience. Hospitality. Or the lack thereof, can influence your vacation. Meaning it will either go down as one of the best. Or worst destinations you've visited.


It's important to research the health care in your chosen holiday destinations. How bad is pollution. Will it be heavily populated? How clean is the location? Is there a high crime rate? What about the weather. Don't forget to check for natural disasters. Or the presence of diseases.

I've been fortunate to have visited over 20 countries so far! I've written about some of my best holiday destinations, and amazing excursions. Including my hometown London. Click the links below.

If you're looking to travel to one of the best holiday destinations in the world, carefully check the holiday destinations you have in mind. Provide all the amenities of importance to you.

Don't just go by old reviews. Try to call or email to double check the facilities ahead of time.

For instance, if you want to be able to drive around and explore, it pays to check and see
whether there are hire cars available. If you are going to be driving around, be mindful of other drivers and how people tend to drive in the place you’re visiting. 

You don’t want to end up in an auto accident needing to call someone like Dennis Hernandez & Associates for help.
