Actually there is only one cure for the winter blues and we're going to let you in on the secret. Are you ready? It’s having an amazing holiday to look forward to! Now we know what you’re thinking. “Where should I go”? “What should I do”?
Here are three (wildly different) antidotes for the dull days of Winter, so take a look and discover your next Great Escape … or should we say ‘remedy’?
JAMAICA: Let’s start this mini showcase with the beautiful island of Jamaica. If you’re thinking of doing something exceptional for your family holiday this year (perhaps you’re celebrating a honeymoon or just want the perfect romantic island escape?) Jamaica is the perfect destination for you.
Let us paint a picture of your dream holiday: you’re relaxing on a stunning beach, there’s a light sea breeze, the warmth of the sun is on your skin and your waiter is bringing you unlimited ice-cold cocktails.
It may just seem like a fantasy, but it doesn’t have to be. If you want to make this dream a reality, we suggest you visit Montego Bay. You will find fantastic luxury all-inclusive hotel resorts, located directly on breath-taking sandy beaches, with views of the sapphire blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.
BERLIN, GERMANY: Our favourite destination in Germany is Berlin, the capital city and the perfect destination for anyone looking for a short break. Couples, families, solo travellers and groups of friends can all enjoy their time here, even if it’s only for a few days.
The pubs and the bars are almost enough of a reason to visit Berlin. They serve world-class beers and offer a magnetic atmosphere, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg, Berlin is so much more.
We couldn’t talk about Berlin without mentioning the food; from currywurst and schnitzel to pretzels and strudel, Berlin is the food lover’s dream. There’s plenty of food stalls and restaurants to choose from, all you need is an appetite and a day to explore.
If you want to do something special for dinner, we suggest you book a table at the Berliner TV Tower (shown below). It’s the tallest structure in Germany and boasts a rotating restaurant, giving you a magical view of the city while you enjoy your wonderful meal.
Berlin is a city rich in history. A history that has been preserved and documented by remarkable museums; there are many in Berlin but for the best experience we recommend you visit ‘Museum Island’, a collection of five museums located alongside the River Spree. It’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
For those that want to learn Berlin’s history by exploring, we suggest you follow the path of where the infamous Berlin Wall once stood, taking pictures and lining your photos up to old images of Berlin in the 70s. An interesting way to see how much Berlin has developed in recent years.
Remember to leave some time to visit the Brandenburg gate. This 18th-century landmark is one of Berlin’s best-known landmarks and a must-see for all travellers.
THAILAND: Still unsure what kind of holiday experience you want? That’s fine, we won’t judge you. We know it can be hard to decide, so the last destination on our mini list is Thailand. The perfect place for the indecisive traveller, read on to see why.
So you want to chill on the beach all day, explore a city at night and visit a historical site the next morning? Some would call you mad, we call it adventurous. You can do all of those activities and more on a holiday to Thailand.
Couples, families, friends and solo travellers can all find something to love in Thailand, where you can have a beach and city holiday all in one country. With that in mind, we recommend you spend some time in the capital city of Thailand, Bangkok, known for its world-famous street food and amazing historical sites.
Surprisingly only a short flight away, you will find some of the most beautiful white-sand beaches in the world! Our favourite beaches in Thailand are Railay Beach and Phra Nang Beach. They are only accessible by boat but you will be incredibly happy you made the journey.
So now we’re sure the only question you have left is ‘when can I go?’ and of course, at Oasis Travel, the answer is always ‘whenever suits you!’. Talk to us today and we’ll help you throw away those winter blues and book a holiday you can look forward to.
