Spain, Turkey, Greece and Egypt are all popular places for our summer holidays, but what destinations will we be jetting off to in the future? These resorts would need to be bathed in sun in the summer months and full of history and culture. Here are 3 places that I think could be holiday destinations of the future.
- Flight Time – Around 5 hours 30 minutes
- Time Zone/Difference – Azerbaijan is 4 hours ahead of the UK
- Peak Season – Through the months of July, August and September temperatures average 26°C
A modern and up and coming country, Azerbaijan is well known for its new oil riches; however it’s yet to develop in the tourism sector. It has a similar background to the Emirate States of Abu Dhabi and Dubai and in the coming years, it’s likely to become the destination of choice for the rich and famous.
The capital; Baku, is already showing signs of tourism with the beaches lining the Caspian Sea drawing more and more visitors each year. With new hotels being built ready for the summer months, I think Azerbaijan will rival many of the top European destinations in the future.
- Flight Time – Around 2 hours 30 minutes
- Time Zone/Difference – Montenegro is 1 hour ahead of the UK
- Peak Season – Through the months of June, July and August temperatures average between 28°C and 30°C
Hidden on the Adriatic coastline, close to Greece and bordered by Croatia, is Montenegro. It’s often over shadowed by the more popular resorts but in the future, I’m sure this tiny country will become a popular destination we’ll all want to visit. The rolling hills, stunning coastline and picturesque towns and villages will take your breath away. It already has bags of natural beauty and lots of character, so all it needs now is to add is some luxurious hotels.
- Flight Time – Around 2 hours
- Time Zone/Difference – Slovenia is 1 hour ahead of the UK
- Peak Season – Through the months of July, August temperatures average between 28°C and 29°C
Much like Montenegro, Slovenia is a relatively unknown country in the world of travel. The neighbouring countries of Italy, Croatia and Austria have developed world class resorts and hotels. Although it only has a small coastline; stretching just 43km along the Adriatic Sea, Slovenia has many lovely towns, bays and peninsulas which include the beautiful town of Piran.
Away from the coast is the developing city of Maribor which is the second largest city. It’s home to around 115,000 people but still retains a quaint town like feel. The capital Ljubljana is the biggest city and offers a very relaxed experience, with hill top castles and a tree lined river running through the centre. It’s an excellent alternative to the usual city break destinations.
