Consider these hots spots for your bucket list
One of the best things about starting a new year is creating a bucket-list and imagining all the exciting things you want to achieve in the 12 months ahead. The team at Flight Centre Docklands think no list of New Year’s resolutions is complete without a new travel destination to explore.
To make choosing your next travel destination a bit easier, we spoke to Flight Centre Docklands’ travel expert, Curtis, to find out his most popular holiday recommendations for 2019. With an exciting Flight Centre Christmas Cash promotion running, it’s never been a better time to book your flights.
Travel experts believe Sri Lanka will top the charts for travel destinations to visit next year. Located in the Indian Ocean, the tropical island offers a remarkable combination of stunning landscapes, pristine beaches and captivating cultural heritage sites. It has over 350 waterfalls, 15 national parks and 500,000 acres of lush tea estates, making it perfect for the adventure seeker who wants to be immersed in a rich cultural experience.
While the world is full of fascinating places to visit, few countries are as compelling as Morocco according to the Docklands team. Located in North Africa, it has strong Berber, Arabian and European cultural influences that make it a travel hotspot for backpackers, history lovers and thrill-seekers alike. Whether it’s camel-riding, mountain trekking or exploring maze-like medinas, they’re predicting adventurers will flock to Morocco in the new year.
Located in South America with lush forests, snow-capped mountains and beautiful Caribbean coastlines, it’s no surprise that Colombia is gaining popularity among travellers. Its position on the equator means the weather is warm throughout the seasons, making it the perfect place to escape during Melbourne’s colder months. It has some of the most electric festivals in the Southern Hemisphere so make sure you don’t miss out on the colourful spectacle that is Barranquilla Carnival in March.
To celebrate the festive season, Flight Centre Docklands are offering a Christmas Cash promotion. Pay $1,500 or more for a holiday package and receive a $250 Flight Centre voucher to spend on your next trip. With a deal like that, surely there’s never been a better time to channel your inner sense of wanderlust and begin planning your next vacation.
