Yachting on the French Riviera

If luxury is what you are looking for, the French Riviera is one of the best destinations that you may want to consider.

Cruise in Alaska

Going on a cruise is one of the best ways to enjoy the water. Many destinations, however, seem to be over-rated. If you are looking for an experience that is more exotic and will surely be memorable, Alaska should be on the top of the list. The weather itself is already a good reason for you to consider it. Its snow-covered mountains populated with diverse wildlife will leave you in awe. From seals to penguins, there is a lot to see here. There are also charming villages that are unlike anything you have seen before. 

Traditional Junk Boat in Vietnam

Luxury cruise liners can be a good idea for a holiday, but if you have already tried it before and you’re looking for something more unique, then look no further. Go to Halong Bay in Vietnam, which is a UNESCO Heritage Site. Book a tour aboard a junk boat and see the beauty of Vietnam unfold right in front of your eyes. The towering limestone formations will surely give you a memorable time. The boats stop in several destinations and you can go down for snorkelling, kayaking, and other activities. Do not be fooled by the appearance of these boats. They may be made from traditional wood, but they can be fitted with luxurious amenities. Some, however, are also affordable, making it the perfect choice for budget-conscious travellers.


Go Canal Boating in the UK

The canals in the UK have assumed a significant role in the commercial activities of the country. Before railways, these canals served as the major mode of transportation. They cover the UK, and have many interesting stops in different destinations. While these canals are no longer used for trading, narrowboats filled with holidaymakers are occupying the waterways today.  They are fitted with luxurious amenities, including heating and cooling systems, modern kitchens, and luxurious beds. Some of the most popular routes that you might want to take into consideration include the Avon Ring, Oxford Canals, Scotland Canals, and the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.
