MAY we go on holiday this month? Ok, perhaps we're not the best when it comes to puns, but we are the best at booking memory-making holidays and alternative trips.
Pioneering travellers can discover Europe’s newest country with us; Kosovo only declared independence in 2008. Explore a landscape of snow-capped mountains, wildflower meadows, gorges and waterfalls. In the towns and villages, Islamic and Orthodox Christian influences are evident in the abundant mosques and monasteries. The lively capital, Prishtina, is the perfect base from which to explore the Serb enclave of Gracanica where Byzantine frescoes abound. Don’t miss the chance to wander the narrow cobbled streets of the Ottoman city, Prizren, admiring old stone houses, exquisite mosques and Turkish baths.
Discover timeless China from the limestone islets of Guilin and ancient streets in Yangshou to Suzhou's heavenly gardens. Step back in time and walk a section of the Great Wall and admire the hand-crafted Xian’s Terracotta Army. For nature at its best, sail through the stunning Yangtze Gorges and pass by the formidable Yangtze dam. China is wonderfully diverse; in the west discover the colourful markets of ancient Silk Road oasis towns, the monastery-dotted wild Tibetan plateau, the rugged mountains and ethnic minorities of Yunnan Province and the iconic panda in Szechuan Province
Nestled between the Alps, the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Plain, Slovenia is green and diverse. Here, the Alps descend abruptly through thick forests to the reach Adriatic; it is possible to walk in snowy alpine fields in the morning and bathe in the warm coastal waters in the afternoon. Slovenia has everything to offer for a memorable holiday, whether you enjoy culture, heritage, sport or rest and relaxation. Explore the cultural Baroque capital, Ljubljana or opt to ski across the Julain Alps; enjoy regional foods and local wines or relax at a modern spa resort. Coastal Piran and Koper showcase Venetian influences and boast sumptuous seafood restaurants.
