January is an exciting time of year as it’s the perfect time to plan your adventures for the year ahead. With so many destinations to choose from, it can be overwhelming when it comes to pinpointing where you’re going to go. Travel planning shouldn’t result in frustration though; it should create a buzz and anticipation, and of course inspire you to start wardrobe planning. 

To take the guesswork out of adventure planning, here are the top travel destinations for 2017…

 

1. Ohrid, Macedonia


    If you’re after a little slice of paradise for summer 2017, consider heading to Ohrid, Macedonia. Just north of Greece, the European country has often been overlooked as a travel destination, but has recently been put on the map. The stunning and historical town benefits from amazing beaches and tranquil blue waters of its eponymous lake. As Macedonia’s busiest holiday resort, Ohrid provides a lively nightlife, but the town is still quiet enough to find peace to relax in the sun during the day.

     

    2. Bordeaux, France


    Bordeaux used to be known as ‘Sleeping Beauty’ due to the quiet nature of the city. Bordeaux is now wide-awake and due to provide a fantastic travel destination for 2017. New speed network trains connects the city with Paris in just two hours, making Bordeaux the ideal base to explore more of France. Stay in Bordeaux for ten days and plan a weekend trip in Paris to sample the best of what Paris has to offer.

     

    3. Merida, Mexico


      On any day in Merida you’ll find an amazing array of live music, dance performances and art shows, not to mention the booming culinary scene. For 2017 Merida has been named the American Capital of Culture, meaning there will be a lot of emphasis on cultural events and experiences throughout the year. In addition there are beautiful beaches and some truly sumptuous hotels, and Merida has been ranked among the safest places in Mexico, making it an ideal location for a glorious holiday in the sun.

       

      4. Hvar Town, Central Dalmatia, Croatia

        If you’re looking for a little slice of luxury at an affordable cost, head to Croatia for your summer getaway. With beautiful beaches, Hvar also has an incredible nightlife. Grab a midnight taxi-boat to Carpe Diem Beach in Stipanska Bay, an amazingly beautiful location for all-night partying. Hvar enables you to spend the day on stunning beaches in the warm sun or relaxing by the pool, and the night sipping cocktails at incredible and exclusive beach parties.


        Where will you be jetting off to in 2017? Make this year a year for wanderlust and adventures.
