16 Popular Travel Destinations In 2018
Primeval jungle fringes white-coral sand; postcard-blue surf pounds dramatic black rocks. The Indian Ocean archipelago zealously lends itself to castaway fantasies: local lore about buried treasure and haunted sea caves abound. But paradise comes at a price: marooned 1,600km off Africa’s east coast, reaching this remote refuge can be an ordeal. Not so in 2018, when British Airways launches the UK’s first non-stop cheap flights to Seychelles from March.
Winter is not just for the skiers in Jackson Hole. It’s also for the birds — hawks, eagles and owls — and the elk, moose, bison, and wolves. The valley floor, part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, is as well regarded as Lamar Valley for wolf sightings. In summer, the Teton mountains that frame the”hole” (cortical valley) provide the setting for grizzlies since they re-emerge. Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris (jacksonholewildlifesafaris.com), based by photographer and guide Jason Williams, have winter and summer safari offerings. Trailfinders (trailfinders.com) has cheap flights via Denver and Washington.
The Spanish Costas are overwhelmed with tourists since once-popular destinations in North Africa remain off limits. Northern Spain has improved value and it’s really rarely better than Baiona in southern Galicia. The fishing port is near to Portugal, therefore, gets warmer weather and less rain than locations further northwest. The town has many little and appealing shores — with innumerable others across the coast nearby. If you like seafood you’re going to take paradise with prices more reflective of the Spanish rather than the German or Irish price of living.
