Looking for the perfect way to escape the chilly winter? We’ve got you covered. In the rest of this post, we will suggest three of the best destinations that you may want to consider, as well as the best attractions that should never be missed.


While this country may be unheard of for many people, it is one of the most promising destinations if you are looking for warm weather and diverse culture. Its rich history, unique traditions, and magical architecture are just some of the things that make this a great choice.

There is plenty to see on a holiday to Oman. Muscat, the country’s capital, should definitely make up part of your itinerary. In almost every corner, you will see a traditional mosque. They are breathtakingly beautiful, whether you see them during the day or the night. If you are looking for a more thrilling experience, make sure to visit Wahiba Sands. Ride a 4×4 and enjoy the massive sand dunes and see the camels. If you are looking for a beach, Sur can be promising, especially if you visit during the time of turtle migration. For a piece of history, Bahla, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a good pick. Other spectacular attractions include Omani Grand Canyon and the Green Mountain.

South Africa

Rugged landscapes, beautiful beaches, and diverse wildlife are just some of the things that make South Africa a promising choice for a holiday. There are some places wherein you can enjoy a cosmopolitan vibe while there are also others that are far from the hustle and bustle of the city.


Waterberg Sanctuary, Limpopo, South Africa

Among others, Table Mountain is one of the most iconic attractions that should not be missed during your holiday. With a height of 1,086 metres, you can reach the top by cable car and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the surroundings. Another place that you should visit is the Kruger National Park, which is Africa’s largest game reserve. Here, you can see giraffe, cheetahs, lions, elephants, and buffalos, among others. The beaches of Durban, which are often compared to Miami, will be the perfect sanctuary for those who love the sun, sea, and sand. The Blyde River Canyon Reserve is also worth seeing.


This is unlike any other country that you have visited in the past. Its history, culture, and tradition will make it offer a magical and unforgettable holiday. From ancient architectures to its traditional spice markets, you will not run out of things to do and attractions to see.

Among others, one place that you should definitely visit is Chefchaouen, which has gained the reputation for being a blue city. It has also become popular due to being one of the largest producers of cannabis in Morocco, so expect to see hashish being sold anywhere. Fes, a medieval city, is another attraction that will captivate your attention. Of course, your visit will not be complete without seeing Marrakech. This is one of the best places to experience their souks, or markets. You can shop for spices, wools, and other unique finds that you can take home as souvenirs.
