Top 6 Long-Haul Destinations you need to visit

For when somewhere further afield appeals to your travel needs, here we have our Top 6 long-haul destinations…


#1 The United States

The United States really does offer everything, award-winning theme-parks, beaches, cities and some of the best scenery and sightseeing opportunities in the world. Its relatively affordable and with a huge range of tailor-made itineraries and pre-arranged holiday packages available (contact Destina for more information) you’ll be spoilt for choice on where to visit first – from Florida to New York, Arizona to Lake Tahoe, the possibilities are endless.


#2 Mauritius

Mauritius may be mistaken as a “honeymoon destination” but it is also fast becoming a family friendly option too. With direct flights, accommodation to suit all budgets and a choice of board options from bed and breakfast to a la carte all-inclusive. The island is encircled with stunning beaches with an array of outdoor adventures to choose from including snorkelling, quad biking and even walking with lions!


#3 Dubai

Ok, so you should know by now that Dubai is one of Destina’s favourite destinations as mentioned in our previous blog here. A glitzy metropolis with spectacular skylines, luxurious hotels, excellent dining and of course year-round great weather, a warm sea and beautiful beaches await you. Dubai wears the crown when it comes to an action-packed long-haul holiday. From sand-buggy tours to water parks, aquariums, shopping malls and more, Dubai is the ultimate getaway.


#4 Thailand

If variety is your thing then Thailand is the long-haul destination for you. With opulent temples, culture-filled cities and idyllic beaches Thailand is spectacular. English is widely spoken here and the welcoming Thai people offer great food and excellent service. Feed and wash Elephants in the Khao Sok National Park, take a trip to Phuket where an abundance of excursions take you here there and everywhere, and complete your stay in the bright lights of bustling Bangkok


#5 South Africa

South Africa is the perfect place to have a first taste of a safari. Catching a glimpse of ‘The Big 5’ in their natural environment is an activity for all ages. Combine with a stay in stylish Cape Town and take a ride on the aerial cableway to the top of world-famous Table Mountain. With direct flights and minimal time difference, South Africa is a popular and desirable long haul location. Stay in a safari lodge, dive with Great White Sharks, visit a traditional Zulu village, ride an ostrich or hike the Blyde River Cameron – just a few of the exciting adventures awaiting in South Africa.


#6 Australia

The furthest on our list is Australia, another Destina favourite (read more here). For those willing to brave the flight, Australia delivers in weather, sightseeing, beaches and nature. Enjoy a romantic meal under the stars with Ayers Rock as your backdrop. Take a walk on the wild side with Tigers at Australia Zoo or climb the renowned Sydney Harbour Bridge – there really is something for everyone and for all ages. Why not tag on a stopover en route, choices include Dubai, Singapore, Bali, Los Angeles and many more.
