Our Best Holiday Ideas For 2022

Region: Indian Ocean

A holiday in 2022 to the Indian Ocean pretty much tickets off a destination on everyone’s bucket list. From the iconic and well-renowned crystal waters and white sands of the islands to the year-round gorgeous weather, you’d be forgiven for lusting over an Indian Ocean adventure. Let’s get travel in 2022 on the road so that you can start your holiday countdown on, ASAP.

Indian Ocean Holidays 2022: The Maldives

Often described as paradise – it’s not hard to see why. The Maldives is often at the top of everyone’s dream travel list, and that’s why we’ve put it at the top of ours for the best places to travel in 2022.

Indulge yourself with an escape to the Maldives, island hop to your hearts content and chill poolside or beach front. The choice is yours. Picture yourself swimming through the beautiful blue waters of the oceans and walking bare foot through the sand to your dinner spot of choice. Sounds pretty good, right? We think so, too.

Indian Ocean Holidays 2022: Mauritius

Calling all honeymooners – this one is for you. Mauritius is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime destination, and we want that to be the kind of destination that you’re considering for your holidays in 2022. Go big or go home!

Experience Mauritius for yourself and find that beaches aren’t all that Mauritius has to offer. Think mesmerising natural landscapes such as an impressive mountain range, beautiful coral reefs that gives the Great Barrier Reef a run for it’s money, and rainforests that some of the world’s most exotic (and most endangered) animals call home.

Indian Ocean Holidays 2022: Seychelles

As one of the world’s smallest countries, not everyone initially considers Seychelles when thinking about a holiday, but we’re here to tell you why you should. Small but mighty, Seychelles has well and truly earned it’s spot on our best places to travel list for 2022.

Boasting 115 gorgeous islands, all with luscious greenery, blue waters and exotic landscapes, the Seychelles really does look like paradise.

Aside from the jaw-dropping natural scenes, Seychelles offers you a destination to retreat to that makes you feel like you’re the only one around. As a virtually untouched area of the world, Seychelles offers natural beauty, National Parks, and a real warm welcome by those that call these islands home.

Region: The Middle East

A trip to the Middle East is an absolute must for 2022 if you haven’t explored this part of the world before. The mesmerising United Arab Emirates boasts seven Emirates, including tourist favourite Dubai… but that’s not all that the Middle East, or the United Arab Emirates has to offer. From the often-overlooked capital of the UAE: Abu Dhabi, to the cultural hub that is Ras Al Khaimah, and all the Emirates in between, a trip to the United Arab Emirates sits very high on our list for the best places to travel to in 2022.

Middle East Holidays: Dubai

Known for its iconic city skylines, ground-breaking architecture and glamorous (and extravagant) lifestyle, Dubai has long been a tourist favourite – and a favourite of ours. With a great mix of tourist attractions, fabulous beaches and once in a lifetime experience on offer, Dubai is definitely a great place for a holiday in 2022… and an unforgettable one, at that.

Middle East Holidays: Abu Dhabi

If you want to be near enough to the action of Dubai so that you can take a visit, but relish in the opportunity to kick back and relax on a beautiful white sandy beach, Abu Dhabi is the Emirate for you.

The capital of the United Arab Emirates offers a great holiday destination for those that want the best of both worlds, with cityscapes in downtown Abu Dhabi, world-renowned tourist destinations on attraction hub Yas Island, and famous sunsets on the beaches of Saadiyat Island (as well as a world-leading turtle conservation program, too) holidays in Abu Dhabi really do offer something for everyone, and for this reason, Abu Dhabi has definitely earned its spot on our list for the best places to travel in 2022.

Middle East Holidays: Ras Al Khaimah

If you’re looking for an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful weather that the United Arab Emirates has to offer but want to book a holiday in 2022 that prioritises a well-rounded, cultural experience… Ras Al Khaimah is the perfect destination.

Spend your time exploring gorgeous mosques, discovering the sand dunes and experiencing the unique Middle Eastern culture for a real holiday of a lifetime.
