It’s always a real treat to get away in the summer months, to allow yourself a bit of sun, sea and sand, or whatever else takes your fancy. But where should you go this summer? We’ve put together three top destinations that we adore, which are sure to tempt you as well. Take a look…
Macau is fondly known as the ‘Oriental Las Vegas’ because it’s a gambler’s paradise. It’s the only place in China where you can legally gamble, so they’ve really gone all out with a whopping 33 casinos. One of these is the Venetian Macao which is the largest casino in the world. With this array of resorts, you get truly illuminating nightlife that excites the senses. Gambling aside, there are plenty of other things to do in Macau too. There are gardens, picturesque hilly landscapes, meandering lanes, traditional Chinese restaurants and a number of landmarks that are not to be missed – we’d highly recommend the St. Paul ruins and Fisherman’s Wharf. Go this summer to enjoy gorgeous weather.
2. New York
A lot of people associate New York with a shopping trip at Christmas, and that is undeniably fun. But have you ever thought to visit the Big Apple in summer? You can enjoy everything that the city has to offer but at much more pleasant temperatures. Highlights in summer include spectacular views from the Empire State Building, a bicycle ride around Central Park, and a trip to Williamsburg where you can enjoy a wonderful neighbourhood with a view of Manhattan across the water. And don’t forget to tick off those must-visit destinations that New York has to offer, some of which include the Statue of Liberty, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Terminal and Times Square. It’s seriously a holiday you won’t forget in a hurry.
If you want to top up your tan and hit seriously sunny climes, head to Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. The weather is beautiful in summer and you can enjoy a wonderfully relaxing holiday, whilst still enjoying everything that this small island has to offer. Wherever you’re based, you won’t have to travel far to witness the main attractions. Visit Timanfaya National Park to discover the volcanic scenery and admire spectacular views, or head to the Costa Teguise market on a Sunday morning to embrace local culture, buys, music and food. Hop on a boat and explore quiet parts of the island, or walk to a local harbour for delicious seafood and Canarian potatoes.
