Fast approaching, have you started planning holidays for 2020?
China’s capital, Beijing is in many ways a city of contrasts.
Evolving and expanding for hundreds of years, holidaymakers paying a visit to the city will be able to admire the latest technologies symbolised by the city’s sensational skyline, visit some important historical landmarks and follow in the footsteps of the Ming Dynasty with a visit to the vast Forbidden City.
Standing close by, the stretching Great Wall of China, one of Earth’s greatest man-made wonders, is easily reached from the city.
A bustling city, Delhi, resting in the north of India, presents visitors with both Old and New areas each offering authentic cultural experiences.
During an available tour enjoying India’s Splendour, city highlights enjoyed include the towering Qutub Minar, the amazing Jama Majid mosque and the site of an eternally burning flame – Raj Ghat, a memorial site dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi.
Whilst visiting this far-flung part of the world, a holiday would not be complete without a visit one of the wonders of the world, the famous Taj Mahal, a magnificent holiday inclusion.
One of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice, close to Lake Garda, is one of Italy’s most visited.
A classic holiday destination, Venice is highly rated, offering a wealth of sights and experiences including the renowned St. Mark’s Square and Doge’s Palace first built in the 14th century.
Taking advantage of their proximity to one another, an available guided tour follows a fantastic itinerary including Venice, the historic city of Verona and on to the resorts of Italy’s largest lake – Garda.
4. St. Petersburg
Known for its large number of palaces and grand buildings, the city complements the capital Moscow during a perfect exploration of captivating Russia.
Touring the city, key St. Petersburg landmarks range from the delightful Winter Palace, once home to Tsars, and the beautifully decorated Church of our Saviour on Spilled Blood.
First imagined by Peter the Great and constructed in the 18th century, Peter and Paul Fortress rests on Zayachy Island.
Explore this key landmark, one of the first major buildings built in the area that we call the city of St. Petersburg today.
Following a layout that is ideally suited for exploration on foot, Vancouver is one of the North American continent’s most beautiful cities.
Resting on the banks of Vancouver Bay that, if followed north, eventually leads on to the extraordinary Inside Passage, Vancouver is a must-visit city destination.
Explored during a tour of Western Canada that also sees holidaymakers travel to the foot of the famed Canadian Rockies, Vancouver acts as both an excellent introduction and fitting conclusion to this 10-night epic tour with a carefully planned foray into the beautiful Canadian wilderness perfectly sandwiched in between.
During the time spent in the city, holidaymakers will be able to fully delve into Canadian culture with visits to beautiful Stanley Park, English Bay, trendy Robson Street and the history of the city’s oldest quarter – Gastown.
Returning to the city, in many ways a gateway to the great outdoors, a scenic drive along the coast and up into the mountains surrounding Vancouver gives holidaymakers the chance to walk amongst the treetops with a visit to Capilano Suspension Bridge.
Vancouver followed by a tour of the Rockies is an essential bucket list entry for 2020.
