It seems like a lifetime ago that we were able to choose where we wanted to go when. When booking a holiday meant only relying on ourselves and not worldwide restrictions.
But relief is in sight, with many countries around the world setting up a traffic light system. This is so you know the safe and approved places to travel.
Here are 3 approved locations that will see the cobwebs on your luggage being swept away in no time.
Iceland is the perfect holiday destination for nature lovers. Sitting just below the Arctic Circle, Summer in Iceland is spectacular. Visitors can soak up 24 hours of sunlight with the sun never setting during this time.
Iceland is also one of few locations with visibility of Aurora Borealis (The Northern Lights). Visitors should be able to get a glimpse of this between September and April.
Iceland has something to see in every corner. Scattered all around the country are geothermal pools, all unspoiled by nature. Þingvellir National Park is a UNESCO heritage listed site and cannot be missed! And make sure you take a guided tour of one of Iceland’s many active volcanoes.
What is not to love about Portugal! Sun, beaches, food, culture, history; Portugal has it all.
Portugal is beautiful all year round but the best time to go is either Spring or Autumn. By avoiding Summer, you avoid the extremely hot days and the height of the tourist season.
Active holidaymakers can surf at the Algarve’s best beach Praia do Amado. Even an inexperienced surfer can hit the waves with the local surf school. The area is also family friendly with a protected area for swimming and rock pools to explore.
There are so many stunning cities to choose from in this country. All boast spectacular architecture and world-renowned cuisine. Hire a car and plan a road trip to check out Lisbon, Porto and Sintra.
This melting pot of cultures has something for everyone. Are you looking for a fun filled holiday with the children (think Singapore Zoo)? Or a ‘shop til you drop’ marathon (think Orchard Road) with your bestie? Whatever you want in your holiday, Singapore has got it.
What also stands out about Singapore is the food extravaganza. Malay, Chinese and Indian are a few of the cuisines you will find. Street vendors, 5-star restaurants, and fusion food is almost on every street. And while you are finding the perfect stop to fill
your bellies, absorb the spectacular city lights and out of this world architecture, including the futuristic Gardens by the Bay, which is best seen at night.
Keen to head out of the city for a day or two? Sentosa Island is well connected to the city . The adrenaline junkie, beach dweller, kid or kid at heart will love Sentosa. Sentosa features man-made beaches, Universal Studios and S.E.A. Aquarium, so it is a perfect change of pace when holidaying in Singapore.
With the Traffic Light system constantly updating, make sure you check the relevant Government website and travel advice before booking and travelling.
