With 2021 just around the corner, our community of travel experts have come together (virtually of course) to come up with the 21 destinations that you should be considering for your travels next year. These are spots that have piqued our interest whether it be for consistently rating highly amongst our customers or by emerging as the hot new place to visit.
You’ll discover off-piste options that take you miles from the tourist traps, world-renowned beachside locations given a new lease of life, age-old heritage amongst the mountains of Oman and private pool villas that deserve recognition.
These destinations reflect the feelings we’re all having towards travel at the minute with many of us seeing the new year as an opportunity to fulfil our wanderlust and throw ourselves into new experiences that have been off-limits for so long now, whilst others remain cautious, preferring to travel closer to home exploring the UAE-based destinations that made our list.
Here are our twenty-one destinations for creating an unforgettable 2021.
