Vietnam Holidays

Vietnam is one of the best all-round holiday destinations in the world. It has interesting history and culture, dramatic natural wonders, lively cities with good bars and restaurants, and beautiful beaches.

Beach Holidays in Vietnam

Vietnam doesn’t have the same reputation as a beach holiday destination as Thailand but it does have a number of popular and beautiful beach areas with luxury resorts.

Central Vietnam Beach Holidays

Danang and Hoi An Beach Holidays

Around the cities of Danang and Hoi An there is over 20km of sandy beach. One of the most popular areas near Danang is My Khe – a beach that has recently undergone some development and now has a range of luxury resorts to choose from.

Further south is Cua Dai beach. The beach is lined with luxury resorts and palm trees, and is only a short drive away from the city of Hoi An (see below for more on the city).

Nha Trang Beach Holidays

Nha Trang is Vietnam’s most popular beach resort. There is a long beach in front of the main town but it is often very busy and not as clean as it used to be. The good news is that there are some quieter beaches nearby.

There are lots of bars and restaurants in the main town and along the beach, and Nha Trang has a reputation as being a party town.

Bai Duong beach is a couple kilometres to the north of the main beach but is much quieter and cleaner. The beach is smaller but has a number of resorts and is within walking distance of the bars and restaurants of the main town.

Ninh Van Bay is on a headland overlooking Nha Trang – it is only reachable by boat and is home to a peaceful luxury resort.

Doc Let Beach is around 50km north of Nha Trang and is much quieter, with a few hotels and a long beach.

The area around Nha Trang is the best place in Vietnam to go diving from and there are lots of dive centres in and around the town.

Southern Vietnam Beach Holidays

Mui Ne Beach Holidays

Mui Ne is a town to the east of Ho Chi Minh City. The area around Mui Ne has lots of beaches including the 10km Ham Tien beach. The sea is warm and generally good for swimming in, although it can be rough at times. The area is good for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Compared to Nha Trang Mui Ne is much quieter, although development has increased recently so there is a good range of resorts, as well as bars and restaurants in the town.

On the outskirts are red and white sand dunes that you can explore by dune buggy.

Phu Quoc Beach Holidays

Phu Quoc is a large island closer to Cambodia than it is to Vietnam, however you can only access it from Vietnam. The island is ringed with beaches and has a densely forested interior.

The island has become more popular as a beach destination but there are still quiet areas and secluded beaches. The sea around the island has great sites for diving and snorkelling.

The island also has an interesting history. It was fought over by Vietnam and Cambodia and was the site of a prison camp in the American war. There is a history museum on the island and you can visit the prison camp.

Cities and Cultural Sites

Vietnam has a fascinating history. Most recently it is known for its fight for independence from France (the French War) and its fight between north and south over communism (the American war). During the 19th and early 20th Centuries the country was a key part of the French Empire but ruled as a protectorate by the Nguyen Dynasty from Hue. Before that it was ruled by a series of frequently warring dynasties, including a period of Chinese rule from the 1st to the 10th Centuries AD. There were also a number of separate Kingdoms – the most famous of which was the Cham Dynasty.

This tumultuous history means there are a lot of cultural sites in the country – whether it is ancient capital cities or remnants of the American and French wars. Add to that amazing natural wonders and lively cities and you will find yourself overwhelmed with things to do and places to see in Vietnam.

Northern Vietnam


Sapa is a hill town right in the north of Vietnam. The town is 1500m above sea level, however, most visitors use Sapa as a way to explore the surrounding mountains, which are home to hill tribes.

From Sapa you can go on single or multi-day treks that take you into the mountains, through villages and past rice terraces.


Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam and its second largest city. The city is centred around the old quarter and nearby Hoan Kiem Lake. This area is a mixture of French and Vietnamese architecture and is home to temples, a cathedral and old prison as well as several museums. Hoan Kiem Lake is a great place to wander around and admire the Tortoise Tower on an island in the middle – a reference to a legendary tortoise that lives in the lake.

The Ba Dinh district is home to the city’s political sights. These include the Presidential Palace, the National Assembly building and Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum. At the Mausoleum you can go inside (you have to walk in pairs behind a soldier) to see Ho Chi Minh’s embalmed body. The area is also home to the Ho Chi Minh Museum – but don’t worry if you miss this one as there is one in almost every city.

At night Hanoi is lively with lots of bars and restaurants. Hanoi is the best place in Vietnam for Bia Hoi, which means fresh beer. Sellers set out small plastic chairs and tables on pavements around the old town, and sell this locally brewed beer very cheaply.

Halong Bay

Halong Bay is one of the top sites in Vietnam. The bay has almost 2000 limestone islands rising from the sea to create a dramatic natural wonder. The majority of the islands are uninhabited but the area is populated by floating villages – where families keep fish farms in nets under their homes.

The best way to see the area is on a traditional Vietnamese Junk. You can stop off to go kayaking – one of the best experiences is kayaking through limestone arches to lagoons hidden in the middle of some of the islands.

Cat Ba town on Cat Ba Island is the main town for Halong Bay – there are lots of hotels, bars and restaurants here if you are not sleeping on a boat. The island is also a national park home to the Cat Ba langur – one of the rarest primates in the world.

Ninh Binh

Ninh Binh is a small city south of Hanoi. The town itself does not have much in the way of attractions but the area surrounding it is full of interesting sites to explore.

Tam Coc is an area with limestone rocks (similar to Halong Bay) crossed by numerous waterways. You can go on a boat trip (small rowing boats only) along the waterways and through the caves that have been carved out of the rocks over thousands of years.

15km from Ninh Binh is the ancient capital of Hoa Lu. The city was capital in the 10th and 11th Centuries and some of the buildings are still standing. Its location amongst limestone cliffs and rivers is one of the key attractions.

Phat Diem Cathedral is another popular trip from Ninh Binh. This huge French-built cathedral mixes European and Vietnamese styles and was built in the late 19th Century.

Central Vietnam


Hue was the imperial capital of Vietnam from 1802 to 1945. The city is split by the Perfume River – the Citadel and old city are to the north, and the new city – with most of the hotels, bars and restaurants – is to the south.

The Imperial Citadel is the main attraction in the city. Inside the Citadel there are lots of temples, palaces and gardens – although many of these were damaged in the French and American wars.

Along the river outside of the city are the tombs of several Emperors. These impressive structures can be seen on a boat trip, or you can cycle along the river to see them.

The city has a good selection of bars and restaurants, and south of the river is lively at night.

From Hue you can also visit the De-Militarized Zone (DMZ) where some of the biggest battles of the American war took place.

Hoi An

Hoi An is a beautifully colourful city in the middle of Vietnam. The city is on a river, and the best thing to do is wander round the old town and admire the mixture of French, Japanese and Vietnamese architecture. There are lots of cafes and bars to stop off at, especially along the river.

The most popular sight in the city is the Japanese Covered Bridge and its Pagoda – a beautiful 17th Century wooden bridge.

Near to Hoi An are the Cham ruins of My Son. My Son was the capital of the Cham Empire from the 4th to 13th Century. The site was chosen as it has a natural defence in the form of a ring of mountains around it. Some of the temples are still standing, although many were destroyed in the American War when it was used as a base by the Viet Cong.

There are beaches nearby – see the beach section on Hoi An and Danang above.


Dalat was originally a city for the French to escape the heat of Ho Chi Minh City. Set in the mountains, it has very different scenery to the rest of Vietnam. The area around the city is great for hiking, mountain biking and canyoning.

One of the most popular sights out of the city is Thien Vien Truc Lam Monastery, which can be reached by either by cable car or a 4km hike.

Southern Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City – previously known as Saigon – is the largest city in Vietnam and is more dynamic and cosmopolitan than Hanoi.

Most of the tourist sites are in the French designed District One, which has wide tree-lined boulevards and several parks. The Reunification Palace, which was the Presidential Palace of South Vietnam, is in this area. Nearby is The War Remnants Museum, which covers the Vietnam War. To give a flavour of what you will find inside, it was originally named the Museum of Chinese and American War Crimes. There is also the obligatory museum dedicated to the life of Ho Chi Minh.

The city still has some French Colonial buildings, the most impressive of which is the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Around an hour and a half outside of the city are the Cu Chi Tunnels. These small tunnels were used by Viet Cong in the American war to hide, and the network at Cu Chi is over 120km long. The area has been preserved and you can learn about life at the tunnels, as well as crawl through one that has been enlarged for tourists.

Mekong Delta

To the south of Ho Chi Minh City the Mekong River splits into nine to form the Mekong Delta. The delta is best explored by boat and you can stop off in some of many towns and villages, and shop at the floating markets.

Possible Itineraries

North Vietnam

If you plan to visit North Vietnam you can spend a few days in Hanoi before heading north to the mountains around Sapa to go hiking or mountain biking. From Sapa you can head to Halong Bay for a two-day cruise amongst the limestone islands. And finally onto Ninh Binh, where you can see ancient palaces, and take a boat trips through caves.

South Vietnam

Start in Ho Chi Minh City with a visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels and a boat trip around the Mekong Delta. From there you can head north into the hills for the city of Dalat where you can go hiking. From Dalat make your way down to the coast and stop off at the beachside resorts of Mui Ne.

The Best of Vietnam

To see all the main sites in Vietnam start with a few nights in Hanoi followed by a boat trip around Halong Bay. From there head south to Ninh Binh for a couple of days exploring the countryside around the city. From Ninh Binh head south along the coast to the old capital of Hue, where you can explore the Citadel. Then spend a couple of nights in Hoi An, which is a short distance south of Hue.

From Hoi An you can either head to the beaches at Nha Trang (if you want more nightlife) or Mui Ne (if you are looking for a quiet beach holiday). From the beach head to Ho Chi Minh City and a tour of the Mekong Delta by boat.

Where to Stay in Vietnam

Vietnam has a large number of hotels that tend to be very good value for money. In some of the less visited places high-end luxury can be hard to come by but the quality of accommodation is generally very good.

When to Go to Vietnam

The best time to visit Vietnam is November to April as during these months the whole of the country is at its driest. From May to September central Vietnam still has good weather, but the north and south tend to see more rain.

Halong Bay is best seen in March and April.

Getting Around Vietnam

A car and driver is the best way to get around Vietnam, although there are trains that link most of the bigger cities.

Getting to Vietnam

There are a few direct flights to Hanoi from the UK with Vietnam Airlines. To use a different airline or get to a different city you will need to have a stopover.

USA Holidays

The USA is a vast country home to countless different landscapes and some of the most famous cities in the world. Whether you are looking for a beach holiday, an adventure holiday or a cultural tour of towns and cities we can build the perfect itinerary for you.

USA Beach Holidays

The USA has some great beach holiday destinations. From the party beaches of Florida to luxury retreats on lesser-known Hawaiian islands there is a destination to suit everyone.

Florida Beach Holidays

Florida is a great place for a beach holiday and has lots of variety – ranging from quiet luxury retreats to lively party beaches.

On the west coast facing the Gulf of Mexico is the popular resort of Clearwater – great for fishing, snorkelling and dolphin watching. To the south of Clearwater is the 7km long St Pete Beach – near the city of St Petersburg.

Further south still on the Gulf Coast is the quieter luxury area of Longboat Key. Behind the beautiful beach there are lots of great shops, restaurants and bars.

Captiva Island is towards the southern end of the Gulf Coast. The island is quieter than most other resorts in Florida and is great for water sports. Near to Captiva Island is the city of Naples. There are lots of beaches in the area and it provides a great base to explore the Everglades and other parts of Southern Florida.

On the eastern coast of Florida, facing the Atlantic, is the city of Miami. Famous for its Art Deco buildings and lively South Beach, Miami is a great place for a beach holiday if you are looking for a mixture of sun, nightlife and shopping.

Fort Lauderdale is just up the coast from Miami. The long beach is backed by lots of bars and restaurants, but is more low key than Miami. Behind the beach there are lots of waterways and canals.

North of Fort Lauderdale is the barrier island of Palm Beach. The area is home to a lot of luxury hotels and is one of most upmarket resorts in Florida.

To the south of mainland Florida are the Florida Keys – a long line of islands stretching out into the Gulf of Mexico. The most popular destination is Key West – right at the end of the line of islands. You’ll find beautiful beaches, lively towns and great diving opportunities.

Hawaii Beach Holidays

Hawaii is famous for its stunning volcanic islands, beautiful beaches and surfing scene. There are 8 main islands in Hawaii and several smaller islets and atolls. Each of the major islands offers something different to visitors.

The island of Oahu is home to Hawaii’s capital – Honolulu. The island is home to over 85% of the state’s population and is home to Hawaii’s most popular resort – Waikiki. Waikiki is a district of Honolulu with over 2km of beach that is home to a lot of resorts, bars and restaurants and is the liveliest resort in Hawaii. Elsewhere on Oahu the north of the island is particularly popular with surfers for its big waves, whilst the west of the island is quieter and is a great place for snorkelling and swimming.

Big Island – officially called Hawaii – makes up over half the land mass of the State of Hawaii. The island is home to the most active volcano in the world and is great for hiking and astronomy as well as beach holidays. The west of the island – around the town of Kona – is the best area for beaches and has lots of resorts. The waves are smaller here than elsewhere in Hawaii making it great for swimming, snorkelling and learning to surf.

Maui is the second largest island in Hawaii. The most popular resorts are on the west of the island. Kapalua and Kaanapali have a range of luxury resorts that offer spas, water sports, golf and tennis. Nearby is the town of Lahaina that has lots of bars, restaurants and clubs that become very lively at night. On the south side of the island there are luxury resorts along the beautiful beaches near Wailea and Makena. These areas are quieter than the west of the island but there is still a lot to do including surfing, sailing and golf, making it an ideal place for a luxury beach holiday in Hawaii.

The other islands are less visited and tend to be quiet. Lanai is a small, scarcely populated island that is home to a few luxury resorts, whilst Molokai is one of the least developed islands – perfect for a quiet and more traditional Hawaiian beach holiday.

Where to Go in the USA

The 50 States (and other territories) that make up the USA cover a huge area and have very different climates, terrain and cultures.

New England

New England is made up of the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. These states are mainly rural and sparsely populated, but are also home to some of the oldest cities in the USA.

Travelling around New England is a mixture of small-town America, some large and old cities including Boston, and rural areas with national parks such as Acadia and White Mountain National Forest.

Boston was founded in 1630 and is one of the most culturally important cities in the USA and has lots of museums and historic sites. The city is easy to explore on foot, and the Freedom Trail takes you to the most important areas of historical interest.

Cape Cod on the east coast of Massachusetts is a beautiful seaside area with great seafood and whale watching opportunities. To the south of Cape Cod is the exclusive Martha’s Vineyard – a beautiful island full of great restaurants and beaches.

The Mid-Atlantic

The Mid-Atlantic region includes New York, Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The area includes two of the most important cities in America – Washington D.C. and New York City, however, the area also has a beautiful coastline and beaches, as well as interesting rural areas and communities.

New York City is one of the most famous in the world. There is so much to do in the city, from walking the famous streets of Manhattan – past Wall Street and Time Square to Central Park – to exploring Brooklyn and its many craft breweries and bars. Some of the best museums in the world are in New York, particularly the Met and the Guggenheim. Plus a trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty. The city also has great bars and restaurants – it’s possible to spend weeks in New York without seeing everything you want to.

New York State has more to offer than just the city though. Upstate New York is home to the impressive Niagara Falls, and the lakes, rivers and forest around Lake Placid – home to two Winter Olympics.

New York isn’t the only major city in the area – Washington DC as the capital of the USA has the major political sights including the White House, The Capitol Building and the National Archives where you can see the original Bill of Rights, Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

The centre of Philadelphia has retained many of its original features dating back to the 17th Century with cobbled streets and old houses. The city was once capital of the USA and was where the Declaration of Independence was written. In addition to its history, Philadelphia is known for its food and particularly its cheesesteak.

Outside of the major cities the area has a beautiful coastline – best seen along the boardwalks in New Jersey or the beaches of Delaware.

Further inland there are vast rural areas, especially in Pennsylvania where large areas are dedicated to farming. There is a large Amish community in Lancaster Country, Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Wilds is a heavily forested area in northern Pennsylvania that is great for hiking, cycling, horse riding, canoeing and seeing wild Elk.

In south Pennsylvania is Gettysburg – site of a famous Civil War battle and Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address.

South East (The Deep South)

The South East is often simply called The South or The Deep South. There are arguments over where it begins and ends, and which states it includes and doesn’t. It is separated from the South West by its history – especially relating to the Civil War. States included in the South East (or Deep South) are Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Florida.

Travelling through the Deep South is a unique and varied experience. From the beaches and Everglades of Florida, to the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee, to the jazz-filled city of New Orleans.

New Orleans is a highlight of any trip. The French Quarter is the old part of the city and is full of colourful Creole-style buildings with balconies overlooking the streets. This area is lively both day and night – with lots of high-quality restaurants and bars with exceptionally high quality live music, particularly Jazz. The French Quarter is not the only interesting part of New Orleans though – venture into the Uptown area to see the impressive colonial style and Victorian mansions along St Charles Avenue. These are best seen from the St Charles Avenue Streetcar, which has been running since 1835.

New Orleans isn’t the only Southern city with amazing live music. Nashville in Tennessee is famous as the home of country music and you’ll find a great selection of bars with live music in the city. There is also the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Johnny Cash Museum. It’s not just about music though – numerous craft breweries and distilleries have opened that offer tours and tastings.

Not far from Nashville is Memphis – the blues capital of the world. Beale Street is the main destination for tourists with lots of high-quality blues and rock n roll bars. However, the biggest draw is Graceland – the former home of Elvis Presley, which is on the outskirts of the city.

Savanna in Georgia is one of the oldest cities in the South and is the best surviving example of antebellum architecture. The city centre is full of historic houses and old streets and combined with moss trees it does give Savanna a historic feel that you rarely get in the USA. Nearby is Tybee Island – a small island ringed by beautiful beaches with lots of beach bars and seafood restaurants.

Across the South nearly all of the many cotton plantations used slaves to work the fields. Many of the plantations houses – usually large mansions – are still intact and have been converted into museums where you can learn more about the history of cotton farming, slavery and the Civil War.

Straddling the border of Tennessee and North Carolina are the Great Smoky Mountains, also known as the Smokies, which form a national park that is home to wild bears. The Smokies are part of the Appalachian Mountains that stretch down the east of the USA. The scenery in the mountains is stunning and is best seen from the Blue Ridge Parkway – a long road that passes through Virginia and North Carolina along a ridge, reaching over 1800m above sea level with frequent viewing points.

Alligators are something many people associate with the Deep South and there are lots of opportunities to see them, whether it’s on a swamp tour in Louisiana and Mississippi or a tour of the Everglades in Florida.

Aside from cities, monuments and nature the South is famous for its food, drink and hospitality. Whether its shrimp and grits in Savannah or Gumbo in Louisiana; craft beer in North Carolina or whiskey in Kentucky everything arrives with a smile.


The Midwest is the region that has historically fueled the USA through both manufacturing and farming. The area includes Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin.

In many ways the Midwest is home to stereotypical small-town America, but it also has great cities, including Chicago, and the amazing Great Lakes.

Chicago is the largest city in the Midwest and looks out on Lake Michigan. The city has some great architecture including the Willis Tower – once the tallest in the world. The best way to see the architecture is by boat tour. Chicago is one of the best cities in the USA for restaurants – the quality of food and service is exceptional. At night the city earns its place as the start of Route 66 with lots of live music, especially blues, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll. During the summer the beaches are a great place to spend the day.

Elsewhere in the Midwest Minneapolis is famous for its theatres and art galleries, Milwaukee has an attractive city centre and the Harley Davidson museum, whilst Detroit has the Henry Ford museum and lots of bars playing music inspired by Motown.

Outside of the cities, the Midwest is covered by farmland, national parks and lakes – including The Great Lakes, which have over 20% of the earth’s fresh water. The water is calm and clear and is great for fishing, swimming, and kayaking.

The Ozarks is a large plateau filled with mountains, rivers and man-made lakes. The Lake of the Ozarks is 92 mile long man-made lake in the northern part of the Ozarks. The area is popular with tourists for its fishing, swimming, boating and kayaking. There are lots of golf courses around the lake. Some parts of the lake are very quiet, whilst others have a party scene – either onshore at some of the many bars and restaurants, or on the lake at Party Cove.

South West

The South West is made up of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah. The area is very influenced by Spanish and Mexican culture. The terrain is mainly rugged cattle ranches and empty deserts that make driving through the states a thrilling experience.

Austin is the state capital of Texas. The city is famous for its alternative cultures and the university plays a big role in the city. Rainey Street is one of the main areas for nightlife and has old bungalows converted into new bars selling local craft beers and other drinks. There is lots of live music around the city at night, and it is one of the best places to have a southern barbecue.

San Antonio in Texas is the most historic city in Texas, famous for its missions. The Alamo is the most famous mission thanks to the 1836 battle that played a pivotal role in the Texas Revolution. There are several other missions close to the city – four are located in the San Antonio Missions National Historic Park.

Santa Fe is a city perched high on a plateau in New Mexico. The city is the USA’s oldest state capital (founded in 1607) as well as its highest (at over 2100m). The city has a distinctive architectural style. Many of the buildings in the centre are built in the Pueblo style – an earth coloured mix of adobe bricks and sun-dried earth that gives the buildings rounded edges and a soft look. These buildings are centred on the main square, which also has an impressive cathedral. There are lots of museums in the city covering American Indian art and history, Spanish colonial art and history, as well as a museum dedicated to Georgia O’Keeffe who was a resident of the city.

Salt Lake City in Utah is known for the being the headquarters of the Church of the Latter Day Saints, more commonly known as the Mormon Church. The headquarters are an impressive temple in Temple Square – the most visited site. However, the city is also a great base from which to explore the amazing surrounding countryside. There are mountains and lakes around the city that are great for hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and climbing. In winter there are ski resorts near to the city – it hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics.

The Grand Canyon is one of the USA’s most impressive natural wonders. The canyon is surrounded by a national park, and you can see it from either the north rim, south rim or on a trek through the canyon itself. The scale is hard to imagine without seeing it – in some places the canyon is over 1500m below the rim.

A key economic activity of the south-west is its cattle ranches. These cover enormous swathes of land and vary from rolling green hills to dry, rugged terrain on the plateaus of New Mexico. Many ranches welcome visitors to stay and experience the life of a cowboy, as well as exploring the amazing scenery on horseback. Going to a rodeo is another great way to understand their way of life.

The south-west is the home of the old Wild West and nowhere brings the Wild West to life like a ghost town. There are many of these dotted around the desert and plateaus of the south-west – often left almost exactly as they were back in the 19th Century. Wander around the deserted buildings and down the dusty main streets to get an idea of what life was like in south-west a few hundred years ago.

Although not everyone’s idea of a good destination, Las Vegas, Nevada is one of America’s iconic cities. Even if you don’t fancy playing poker in one of the casinos, Las Vegas can still be worth a visit to see this surreal city. There are lots of good bars and restaurants around the city, as well as the famous pool parties. It is also a good place to explore the Grand Canyon from.

The Great Plains

The Great Plains contains some of the least densely populated states in the USA – North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma.

There are a number of interesting cities including Oklahoma for its museums, Lincoln for its alternative feel and live music, and Sioux Falls for its city centre waterfalls that give the city its name. However, the main reason to visit the areas is to escape cities and explore the vast and empty countryside.

The Great Plains is a huge area of flat land covered by grasslands and prairie that stretches across these states. The area is primarily used for farming and ranches and has an interesting Native American history.

The Badlands National Park in South Dakota contains canyons, domes and jagged rock formations climbing out of the Great Plains. The rugged terrain is one of the richest fossil beds in the world – including fossils from rhinos and sabre-toothed cats.

The Black Hills are a mountain range also in South Dakota. Their name comes from their forest cover and dark rock. The area has lots of caves – Wind Cave National Park claims to have the densest cave system in the world. There are also lots of rivers and waterfalls that are great to explore on hikes, and at night the lack of light pollution makes this an excellent place to star gaze.

Mount Rushmore is an iconic monument in South Dakota. The monument has the faces of four presidents – Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln – carved into the white rock. Each of the faces is around 60ft high. The monument took 14 years to complete – starting in 1927 and finishing in 1941.

The Rocky Mountain States

The Rocky Mountain States of Wyoming, Colorado, Montana and Idaho are named for the Rocky Mountains that run through them. The area is famous for its national parks and outdoor activities.

Towns and cities in the region are mainly used as bases to explore the surrounding countryside. That said, Denver is a lively and fast growing city with lots of museums, and Boulder attracts a lot of serious athletes as well as alternative cultures.

The biggest attraction in the area is Yellowstone National Park, which straddles Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. It was the first national park in the world and contains lots of geysers and hot springs. The park has over 300 geysers – two-thirds of all the geysers in the world. It’s not just thermal activity that attracts visitors though – the park is home to bears, wolves, lynx, elk, moose and many other mammals.

Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado contains some of the best archaeological sites in the USA amongst its desert landscape and canyons. The park contains the remains of 1400-year-old dwellings built into caves.

Other national parks in the region include the Glacier National Park in Montana that has the most scenic mountains lakes in the whole of the USA, and Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming that is particularly popular with climbers.

Custer in Idaho is a great example of a ghost town. Founded in 1879 it prospered thanks to mining, growing to a population of 600 in the 1890s. However, the mining declined and so did the town, which was abandoned by 1910.

In winter the Rockies are a great place to ski. There lots of resorts in the mountains including the famous Aspen.

Pacific North West

Oregon and Washington make up the Pacific North West. The interior is filled with forests and mountains, whilst the coastal areas have beautiful beaches and cosmopolitan cities.

Seattle is the largest city in the northwest. The city is surrounded by water, with Elliot Bay to the west and Lake Washington to the East. Pioneer Square is an area with cobbled streets and lots of bars and restaurants at the centre of the city. The city is famous for its art and music and has lots of museums.

Portland, Oregon has a great music and art scene and is one of the best places in the USA for craft beer and wine – with other 70 breweries in the city.

Mount Rainier National Park surrounds the huge Mount Rainier volcano, which rises to 14,410 ft. The park has lots of hiking trails and is not far from Seattle. There is also the Mount St Helens National Volcanic Monument in Washington that commemorates the 1980s eruption of the volcano.

Oregon is a great place for outdoor activities. Mount Bachelor and Mount Hood are ski resorts in winter, and popular hiking destinations in summer. Wallowa Lake attracts visitors who want to go boating, fishing and hiking.


California has the highest population of any state in the USA. From north to south the state is over 800 miles long and its terrain is hugely varied – from mountainous forests to arid deserts. California is also home to some of the USA’s most visited cities and national parks.

San Diego is a city at the southern end of the Californian coastline. Pacific and Mission Beaches are in the centre of the cities coastline and are great beaches backed by restaurants, lively bars and nightclubs. To the south is the laid-back Ocean Beach, and to the north is the more upmarket beach area of LaJolla. The beaches offer water sports, including surfing and sailing.

To the north of San Diego is Los Angeles. The main attractions in the city are Hollywood (including Universal Studios Theme Park) and the area around Venice Beach, where the seafront has the iconic outdoor gyms and behind the beach there is a beautiful network of canals and boardwalks. Technically outside the city, but still considered part of Los Angeles is Santa Monica Beach and its famous pier, and slightly further away is the surfer’s paradise of Malibu. In the hills behind the city are the famous mansions of Beverley Hills.

Santa Barbara sits further up the coast from Los Angeles. The city dates back to 1782 making it one of the oldest in California. Originally founded by a Spanish Priest, the main sight in the town is the beautiful 18th Century Santa Barbara Mission.

Between Santa Barbara and San Francisco is the region of Big Sur. Big Sur is famous for its dramatic scenery and cliffs as you drive along next to the Pacific Ocean. Along the way there are lots of quiet, small beaches and coves that you can stop at. Away from the coast it is a great area for hiking with lots of mapped out routes. Carmel is a town at the southern end of Big Sur – it has beautiful beaches, golf courses, spas and is a great place to hike from.

San Francisco is an iconic city in northern California. Famous for the impressive Golden Gate Bridge, steep city streets, Alcatraz Prison and a very liberal attitude there is a huge amount to see and do in San Francisco. In addition to that city has famously good nightlife, with lots of bars and restaurants.

North of San Francisco are the famous redwood forests and the Redwood National Park. Some of the trees are over 2000 years old and the national park is a great place to go hiking through these historic forests.

Away from the coast in northern California is Napa Valley. Napa Valley is the most important wine growing region in the USA. You can explore the valley by bike, stopping off for tastings at vineyards along the way.

East of San Francisco is the Yosemite National Park – one of the most visited national park in the USA. The park is famous for its dramatic granite cliffs, waterfalls and bears. There are lots of hiking trails in the park.

Death Valley National Park is in the Southern California Desert. It is the largest National Park in the USA and is one of the hottest places in the world, with temperatures over 50 degrees Celsius common in summer. The park has mountains that rise to over 11,000 feet near to Badwater Basin – the lower point in the park at almost 300 feet below sea level.


Alaska is the largest state in the USA and is popular with people looking for outdoor adventures. Hiking is the most popular thing to do, although other activity based holidays are possible including rafting.

The state has lots of national parks with incredible wildlife and scenery including Denali – the USA’s highest mountain. Wildlife is everywhere in Alaska with a huge population of black and grizzly bears, lynx and wolves. In the sea around Alaska you may catch sight of a humpback whale, whilst the rivers are home to salmon. If you’re lucky you’ll see the brown bears catching the salmon as they descend the rapids.

Possible Itineraries

Most holidays to the USA involve self-drive either in a car or an RV. This means that itineraries can be extremely flexible. It’s generally best to stick to one region to limit the amount of time you need to spend driving.

One popular itinerary is down the coast of California, stopping at Napa Valley, San Francisco, Yosemite, Los Angeles and San Diego.

If you are big on jazz, blues and country music then travelling from Nashville to New Orleans via Memphis and Clarksdale is a great trip.

Let us know what you are looking for and we will tailor make an itinerary for you.

Where to Stay

The USA has a vast range of accommodation from boutique city centre hotels in New York to luxury spa retreats in Napa Valley.

Getting Around The USA

If you plan to travel around a particular region then hiring a car or an RV is a great option. You can drop these off either where you picked them up or at a different destination. If you plan to visit a few of the larger cities only then flying is very easy.

Getting to The USA

There are lots of daily direct flights from the UK to many cities around the USA.

When to Go to the USA

You can visit the USA anytime, however, the north gets very cold in winter. The hottest months are July and August, for travelling around the south April or May are great months as there is lots of sunshine but it doesn’t get too hot.

The Maldives Holidays

The Maldives is a collection of over 1000 small islands stretched out in a line in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The islands are the stereotypical paradise islands – palms trees ringed with white sand that gently eases into the beautifully warm and clear sea.

Beach Holidays in The Maldives


The Maldives is the perfect place for luxury beach holidays. Around 300 of the islands in The Maldives are inhabited and many of these many these are home to a single resort – your very own tropical island.

Many of the resorts have private villas on stilts over the sea – so as soon as you wake up you can jump straight in. The Maldives is famous for its quiet, secluded resorts perfectly suited for couples and honeymoons but there are also family-friendly resorts.

Unlike other destinations, although the Maldives is spread out over a large area the weather, sea and scenery does not change much. The island you stay on is mainly based on your choice of resort. Although if you plan to visit the capital Male more than once then staying nearby is a good choice as some of the further away resorts require a flight by seaplane.

Let us help you find the perfect resort based on who is travelling and what you like to do.

Things to Do in The Maldives

The Maldives is the perfect place to relax on the beach, but it also has a lot more to offer from water sports to unique bars and restaurants.

Diving in The MaldivesTurtle, Maldives

The Maldives is one of the best places in the world for diving and snorkelling. There are lots of excellent reefs around the islands – many of them accessible without a boat, whilst sheltered lagoons offer a unique diving experience.

Top dive sites include the Kuredu Express – named for the current that pushes you along. The site is home to reef sharks, tuna, stingrays, barracuda, and manta rays. At Kandooma Thila you can see grey sharks and white tips sharks, whilst Broken Rock has turtles, scorpionfish and moray eels. There are also whale sharks that you may see if there is a lot of plankton around.

All resorts will be able to arrange dives and there are good options for liveaboard trips as well.

Water sports in The Maldives

There are lots of water sports option in the Maldives – from serious surfing to banana boats.

There are good surf spots around The Maldives – most of these are not directly accessible from islands but it is easy to find someone who will take you out to the breaks in a boat. Spots near the Southern Atoll have been used for international surf competitions.

If you are more interested in being propelled by the wind than waves, sailing and windsurfing are popular. Windsurfing beginners can learn in sheltered lagoons, whilst the more experienced can head straight out into the ocean.

Most resorts also offer motorised water sports – from banana boats and doughnuts to water skiing and parasailing. Most resorts also have kayaks.

Spas in The Maldives

Massages and other treatments are the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing holiday on a paradise island. Nearly all resorts offer spa treatments but there are also some dedicated spa hotels.

Bars and Restaurants in The Maldives

The quality of bars and restaurants at hotels in the Maldives is very high – often serving a mixture of traditional food and international options. In an effort to outcompete each other resorts have opened an underwater bar and restaurant.

The Maldives Boat Trips

One of the best ways to see the beautiful islands and lagoons of The Maldives is on a boat trip. Both speedboats and catamarans are popular and you can stop off to go snorkelling and swimming along the way.


Malé is the capital of the Maldives and is next to the international airport. The city of over 100 thousand people is squeezed onto a small island and is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. Compared to the islands home to luxury resorts, Malé is a lively and vibrant place full of colourful buildings and fish markets.

Where to Stay in The Maldives

The Maldives has a large range of luxury accommodation. Key things to factor into your choice are whether you are travelling with children and whether you are happy take a seaplane to your resort from the main airport.

Getting Around

To get between islands you can go by boat if they are close to each other, otherwise seaplanes are the best form of transport.

Getting to The Maldives

In peak season there are a few direct flights to The Maldives from London each week, otherwise you will need a stopover somewhere.

When to Go to The Maldives

January to April are the best months to visit as there is less rain. The rest of the year the weather is warm but there is an increased chance of rain and storms, however, you are unlikely to have consistently bad weather.

Thailand Holidays

Thailand Multi Centre holidays

Thailand is one of Asia’s most popular holiday destinations. Not only does it have beautiful beaches and great food, it also has a long and interesting history and a mountainous north perfect for trekking. Thailand is popular with backpackers for its cheap accommodation and lively nightlife, but there are parts of the country that remain less touched by tourism and offer quieter and more luxurious holidays.

Thailand Beach Holidays

The south of Thailand has hundreds of kilometres of coastline and islands that make it a great destination for beach holidays. In addition to beautiful beaches there is some of the best diving in the world. Whilst some areas have a reputation as party destinations, you can also find quiet beaches and isolated paradise islands.

Gulf Coast

The Gulf of Thailand sits south of Bangkok and to the east of the peninsula that is the focus for Thai Beach Holidays. At the north of the Gulf is Bangkok with Malaysia to the south. In the middle is the Central Gulf Coast – home to some of the most popular islands including Ko Samui, Ko Tao and Ko Pha Ngan (famous for its full moon party).

Ko Samui is a large island that has lots of beaches and luxury resorts. The island has become very popular for beach holidays and consequently has lively nightlife. However, as it is a large island there are still some less-developed beaches and secluded resorts that mean you can have the best of both worlds.

To the north of Ko Samui is Ko Tao. Ko Tao is much smaller than Ko Samui but has some of the best diving in the Gulf of Thailand. The island has a mixture of backpackers hubs and luxury resorts.

Andaman Coast

The Andaman Coast is on the other side of the peninsula overlooking the Andaman Sea. This coast has a mixture of relatively undiscovered areas to the north and south, with the popular areas of Phuket and Krabi in the middle.

North Andaman Coast

The main area on the North Andaman coast is Khao Lak. Khao Lak consists of 20km of jungle-backed beaches with lots of luxury resorts along the coast. Khao Lak is much quieter than Phuket and Krabi to the south, and does not have as much nightlife. Villages in the area still follow a traditional Thai way of life.

The sea off the North Andaman Coast has some of the best dive sites in Thailand if you want to do a liveaboard trip. The Suring and Similan islands are both national parks made up lots of small islands to the west of Khao Lak. Whilst there is some basic accommodation on the islands, most people go on a diving trip and sleep on the boats.


In the middle of the Andaman Coast is Phuket – the largest Thai island and the original Thai paradise. The island is now the busiest beach destination in Thailand. The main area on the island is Patong, which is famous (or infamous) for its nightlife. The beaches to the south of Patong also tend to be busy and heavily developed.

Surin – an area to the north of Patong is becoming more popular as a luxury destination for those who want to be relatively close to the nightlife but would prefer a quieter beach.

If you go further to the north there are some quiet beaches on Phuket. Mai Khao in the North West of the island has luxury resorts and is very quiet compared to the busier southern resorts.

Krabi Province

Krabi is just to the south of Phuket, although the two are very closely linked. Krabi is a popular area for beach holidays and has many resorts both on the mainland and on nearby islands.

Ao Nang is the most popular area in Krabi. It is on the mainland and close to Krabi airport, making it very easy to get to. There are lots of hotels along the coast including some luxury options. The area also has a large range of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Due to its popularity the beach can be busy.

Rai Leh is another area on the mainland. It is very popular with rock climbers due to the number of sheer rock faces, which provide great scenery even if you have no desire to climb them.

Ko Phi Phi is a group of six islands that form a national park, although only one of the islands is inhabited and has hotels on. The area is very popular with backpackers (The Beach was filmed here). The area is good for diving, but the one inhabited island gets very busy and there is not a lot in the way of luxury accommodation.

Ko Lanta is a large island but receives far fewer visitors than Ko Phi Phi and the mainland areas. It still has a good range of resorts and is a good option if you want a quieter beach holiday.

Ko Jum is a very small and peaceful island that still has some traditional villages. There are a number of luxury resorts on the island if you are looking for a very quiet holiday.

Cities and Cultural Sites

Thailand has a lot more to offer than its beaches. It has thousands of years of history, lively cities with great bars and restaurants, and the mountains in the north provide stunning scenery and are home to traditional hill tribes.

Whilst there are some sites in southern Thailand, the majority of cities and cultural sites visited by tourists are in central and northern Thailand.

Bangkok and Central Thailand

Central Thailand is home to Bangkok and a number of historic cities and archaeological sites.


Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand and is home to over 11 million people. The city is famous for its lively streets and nightlife, as well as its abundance of culture, which makes it a very intense place to visit.

The city is set on the Chao Phraya River and is crossed by lots canals – earning it the nickname ‘Venice of the East’ (along with at least 50 other cities). One of the best ways to see the city is by boat along these canals – avoiding the chaotic roads.

The most popular tourist site is the Grand Palace where the Royal Family lived until the early 20th Century. The Palace’s huge grounds include Wat Phra Kaew – Thailand’s most sacred Buddhist Temple.

Wat Pho is another of Bangkok’s must-see sights and is home to the world’s largest reclining Buddha, whilst Wat Arun is one of the most beautiful temples in Thailand and is a national symbol.

Bangkok is a great place for shopping, eating and drinking. There are many good bars and restaurants in Bangkok but most visitors want at least a glimpse of the more notorious side of nightlife in the city. Patpong Market is one of these areas – with its night market, bars and restaurants. Khao San Road is famous as the backpacker hub of Bangkok and is an interesting scene for an hour or two.


Around 100km to the North of Bangkok is the ancient capital of Ayutthaya. The city was founded in the 14th Century and it was the capital for around 400 years.

The ancient city is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is covered in beautiful red brick temples and palaces. Whilst popular, it is not on most visitors’ list of sites so can be explored relatively peacefully. You can get to Ayutthaya by boat, train or road from Bangkok.

Nakhon Pathom

Nakhon Pathom is another ancient city around 50km from Bangkok. The city is home to the Phra Pathom Chedi – the largest Stupa in the world. Parts of the Stupa date back to the 6th Century. There is also an old Royal Palace in the town.


Kanchanaburi – to the north-west of Bangkok – is most famous as the location of the Bridge over the River Kwai that was part of the infamous Death Railway built by Japanese POWs during WWII. The town has other WWII sites including cemeteries and museums where you can learn more about the railway.

Udon Thani

Northeast of Bangkok, towards the Laos border, is Udon Thani – the fourth largest city in Thailand. The main reason people visit is for the Bronze Age relics at Ban Chiang, around 35km from the city.

Phnom Rung and Phimai

To the east of Bangkok, Phnom Rung and Phimai Historical Park are excellent examples of ancient Khmer architecture.

Phnom Rung has lots of architectural similarities to Angkor Wat in Cambodia and is over a thousand years old. However, compared to Angkor Wat very few people make it here.

Northern Thailand

The North of Thailand has a very different feel to Bangkok and the South. The climate is much cooler owing to the mountains and everything feels much more relaxed.

Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai is the northern capital. The city dates back to the 13th Century and most of the tourist sites are within its walls and moat. This central area contains lots of old temples and monasteries.

The city centre is lively, with lots of good bars, restaurants and markets. However, most people visit Chiang Mai as a way to explore the surrounding countryside. From the city you can go hiking or mountain biking in the forested mountains and discover hidden waterfalls. Cooking lessons are also very popular.

Chiang Rai

Chiang Rai is the main city for the Golden Triangle where the borders of Thailand, Laos and Burma meet. There are some old temples and monasteries in the city itself, but the main reason for visiting is access to the mountains around it. Trekking and cycling are popular from here and lots of hill tribes live in villages around the city.

The Hill Tribe Museum and Education Centre in the centre of town is a museum worth visiting. In addition to explaining about the hill tribes in the area it gives an honest view of how irresponsible tourism is impacting them. The museum also has an exhibition on the opium and heroin trade in the Golden Triangle.


Pai is a laid back hill town in the north of Thailand. The area is very popular with backpackers for its bars, restaurants and easily accessible countryside.

There are lots of waterfalls within easy hiking distance of the town, and the trekking routes are less busy than those near Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai.


South of Chiang Mai is the small city of Sukhothai. The ancient city of Sukhothai (12km from the modern day city) was the first capital of the Kingdom of Siam – founded in the 13th Century. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and covers 70 square kilometres.

A great way to discover the ancient sites is by bike, or you can hire a tuk-tuk for the day.


Nan is a quiet, ancient city in northeast Thailand, near the Laos border. It was a powerful city from the 14th to the 16th Centuries. The centre of the city has ancient temples.

Nan is one of the less visited sites in northern Thailand, so if you want to see undisturbed hill tribes, Nan is one of the best places to trek from.

Possible Itineraries

Below are some suggested itineraries. These are simply examples of popular trips –

Bangkok and Beach

Most beach holidays in Thailand require a flight change at Bangkok, so it is very easy to add on a few days in the city on your way to or from the beaches.

The Best of Thailand

Start off with a few days in Bangkok, with a possible day trip to Ayutthaya before heading north to Chiang Mai. Spend a few days in Chiang Mai visiting temples and monasteries, seeing waterfalls and taking cooking lessons before heading further north to Chiang Rai where you can go trekking or cycling in the mountains. From Chiang Rai you can fly down to the south of the country for some time on the beach.

Where to Stay

Thailand has a good tourist infrastructure with a lot of accommodation options. These tend to represent excellent money for value.

When to Go

The best time to visit Thailand is from December to June. From July to November it is colder and tends to rain more.

Getting Around

For longer distances (Bangkok to Chiang Mai/Chiang Rai) flying is a cheap and easy option, or if you want to see more of the countryside en route the overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai is very scenic and you can book first class cabins to yourself. Hiring a car and driver is also easy and inexpensive.

Getting to Thailand

There are lots of direct daily flights to Bangkok from London. From other UK cities you will need to change either in London or in the Middle East.

St Lucia

St Lucia is a Caribbean island, and like all Caribbean islands it is famous for its beaches. However, St Lucia is also one of the best islands for nature – with its forested interior, volcanoes and coral reefs.

The island also has an interesting history – it has changed hands between the British and French 14 times in total.

Beach Holidays in St Lucia

St Lucia is an island of two halves. In the North of St Lucia you will find scenery that you traditionally associated with the Caribbean – golden sandy beaches surrounded by green hills, whilst in the south, the landscape is more rugged and the beaches have darker, volcanic sand. Most of the beach resorts are in the north-west, with a few more isolated resorts in the south-west.

North St Lucia

The north of St Lucia is the lively part of the island and is generally chosen by families and people who want some nightlife. The resorts in the north are near to the capital city Castries and the lively town of Rodney Bay.

Reduit Beach

Reduit Beach is the most popular beach on St Lucia and also the longest. There are several resorts along the beach and the safe swimming conditions make it ideal for families.

Nearby is the town of Gros Islet, which has lots of bars and lively restaurants, so if you are looking for some nightlife then Reduit Beach is a good option for your holiday.

The beach is good for watersports, including sailing, kayaking and waterskiing/wakeboarding. There are also good sites for diving and snorkelling nearby.

Other Beaches in Northern St Lucia

Many of the other beaches in Northern St Lucia are smaller than Reduit and have a single hotel, giving the impression of a private beach (although all beaches are public). If you are looking for a beach holiday with lots of activities the BodyHoliday Resort is a great option.

South St Lucia

The south of St Lucia is dominated by the Pitons volcanoes, and the volcanic activity has led to the beaches being darker than in the north. The area is less lively and resorts tend to be quieter and more exclusive. This part of the island is generally favoured by couples (especially those on their honeymoon) and people looking for a tranquil setting.

The beaches are small and only have a single hotel on them.

Anse Cochon

Anse Cochon is a very quiet beach in the south west of the island. The area is ideal for snorkelling as there is a reef very close to the shore. Ti Kaye Hotel is the only accommodation on the beach, but it rents out sun-loungers and snorkelling equipment to people not staying at the hotel.

Anse Chastanet

Anse Chastanet hosts a hotel of the same name. The beach is one of the best spots for snorkelling, and the dive shop attached to the hotel can arrange diving trips.

The forest slopes steeply down to the beach and there is great mountain biking available in the hills behind that can be arranged from the hotel.

Anse Des Pitons

The exception to the darker volcanic sands in the south is the Anse des Pitons beach, which has white sand that has been imported. The very exclusive Sugar Beach Hotel is located on this beach.

Things to Do in St Lucia

Beaches are the main draw of the island, but if you want a break from sunbathing there is plenty to do.

Piton Volcanoes

The Pitons are two volcanoes at the south west of the island. Petit Piton is 743m high, and Gros Piton is 770m. The slopes of the volcanoes are covered in forest, and trekking is a popular option if want to do something active.

Soufriere is the closest town to the Pitons and has retained its French architecture, making it an interesting place to stop off at before or after visiting the Volcanoes.


Castries is the capital of St Lucia, and whilst it has limited interesting sites, the lively market is worth visiting if you have time.

Gros Islet

Gros Islet is a town in the north of the Island near Reduit Beach. The town has lots of lively bars and nightclubs. On Friday there is a street party in the town, so if you are looking for some nightlife or live music Gros Islet is the place to go.

Boat Trips

As with anywhere in the Caribbean boat trips are very popular with tourists. Whether you want to do a speedboat tour of the island or a sunset cruise on a catamaran, boat trips are very easy to arrange.

Pigeon Island National Park & Fort Rodney

Pigeon Island is at the north west of St Lucia. It is no longer an island as it was connected to the mainland in the 1970s. The national park contains what’s left of the colonial Fort Rodney, and there are a couple of good beaches as well.


Hiking is popular in St Lucia, and the Pitons are not the only destination. Heading inland you will walk through cocoa plantations, some of which have restaurants and are open for tours, including one owned by the Hotel Chocolat chain.

Where to Stay in St Lucia

Most people stay in all-inclusive beach resorts, of which there is plenty of choice. However, there are also more secluded resorts in the hills set back from the beaches that have stunning views.

When to Go to St Lucia

The low season in St Lucia is from July to November, which is hurricane season in the Caribbean. Although the chance of a hurricane is low, it means that it rains more frequently (although usually for a short amount of time) and there is a risk of tropical storms.

February and March are the busiest months, whilst December gets busy as people make use of Christmas holidays.

Getting Around St Lucia

The best way to get around St Lucia is by taxi – either for a single trip or to hire for a day.

Getting to St Lucia

There are direct flights to St Lucia from several airports around the UK.
