Multiple destination holidays are truly the best of both worlds for those who don’t want to decide between a lazy beach getaway and a fun-filled cosmopolitan holiday. What many travellers don’t realise, however, is that because most long-haul flights require a stopover, the cost of a multiple destination holiday is not significantly higher than that of a single destination one.
Twin and multiple destination holidays are also fully customisable, so you can decide where you want to begin and end your holiday. Start by unwinding on an island beach then move on to the big city, or do it the other way around and end your holiday by relaxing in paradise.
To get your creative juices flowing and inspire your next getaway, here are three of our top picks for twin and multiple holidays this year. Remember, these are only a few of the options available for twin and multiple destination holidays. The possibilities are endless! With a little creativity, you can easily turn this year’s holiday into the unforgettable getaway of a lifetime.
First stop is Los Angeles, where the question isn’t what to do, but where to start. With its glamorous shopping, iconic sights, thrilling amusement parks and an out-of-this-world nightlife, Los Angeles has something for everyone.
Then it’s off to Tahiti for a taste of French Polynesian island culture. Wander through colourful outdoor marketplaces, visit the pagan temples of the ancient Polynesians, and explore the three waterfalls of Fa’arumai. For dinner, visit Vai’ete Square, a waterfront promenade featuring a variety of gourmet food trucks serving cuisine from around the globe.
Finally, a short one-hour flight will take you to Bora Bora, where you’ll spend the remainder of your holiday in paradise, lounging on pristine white beaches, snorkelling in crystal lagoons home to a myriad of sea creatures and indulging in fantastic luxury accommodation. The ideal place for rest and rejuvenation, Bora Bora is a perfect last stop before returning to reality.
Get out of the city and step off the beaten path in Bali, where you’ll marvel at the volcanic landscapes set against endless rice fields and lush tropical jungles. Unwind on the smooth sandy beaches in Seminyak, bathe in the therapeutic hot springs in Angseri, then move inland to the remarkable town of Ubud for a glimpse of true Indonesian culture.
For the next leg of your journey, move on to Singapore, a vibrant cosmopolitan melting pot of Chinese, Malay and Indian cultures. Explore the many unique districts of the city, taste the mouth-watering cuisine, admire the incredible architecture, and browse the shops at some of the world’s premiere shopping destinations.
Start by letting reality slip away on a fantastic beach in the Maldives. You’ll be enchanted by the smooth sand, cool water and spectacular sunsets, but also by the accommodation, with many luxury resorts offering fantastic overwater bungalows. The Maldives are also known for the best diving and snorkelling in the world, as the islands are surrounded by breathtaking coral reefs, home to more than 700 species of fish and other marine life.
When you’ve enjoyed island paradise to the fullest, move on to Dubai and witness first-hand how a tiny fishing village has transformed into one of the world’s most glamorous urban destinations. Wander through the old quarter of the city as you look up at futuristic skyscrapers, then explore the vast sand dunes on a desert safari. Spend an afternoon immersed in shopping paradise with an endless selection of designer stores and outlets. In the evening, experience the extraordinary nightlife scene in some of the most elite restaurants, bars and clubs in the world.
