Sitting at the top of the list for many Australian’s is Bali. It’s close location and value for money offerings make it an easy choice. Once favoured by younger beachy travellers, this destination now caters for every demographic. The small island of Bali’s accommodation options have grown from modest beachside hotels to now include luxurious private villas and five-star glamorous resorts. The Island of the Gods has a rich and diverse spiritual culture intermingled with dramatic volcanoes temples, surf beaches and a desirable array of shopping and dining opportunities. There is something for everyone in Bali.
Fiji has long been an ideal place to escape to. The tranquillity of its islands and resorts make it a relaxing break. Perfect for families and couples, this paradise is not for those who love shopping and restaurants, but more for those who love lounging about in a hammock or donning snorkel gear and heading out to explore the underwater wonderland. Kids love Fiji – the Fijian kids clubs are the best in the world. Fiji is not for travellers who prefer to go flat out, ‘Fiji Time’ is real – and you’d better get used to it.
Cruising, who doesn’t love it. Get onboard, unpack and that’s it! You can do as little or as much as you want. You can choose to explore every port and take every shore excursion, or not. The food is endless, the shows world class and the activities nowadays on ships – amazing. There are well-priced itineraries galore to choose from including short three-day hops, Pacific Island explorations, one-way journeys and special interest tours.
