Gone are the days of older people only booking a package holiday to the seaside (well, we still do love it, but not ALL the time).
Nowadays we’re to be found touring the world and nothing gets us more excited than somewhere far from the tourist traps, that remain untouched and beautiful.
Expert globetrotter Sabrina Chakici, who is currently making a TV show documenting her travels, shares the best places to visit now!
Uyuni Salt Flats, Bolivia
Bolivia’s masterpiece. A white washed mesmerising landscape that stretches for miles, the salt flats of Uyuni. This natural optical illusion quite simply takes your breath away. The world’s most famous adult photography playground!
Here you can enjoy the unique scenery driving through the expanse in a four wheel drive whilst making friends with the resident llamas and flamingoes. For a real treat, you can even stay the night in the famous salt hotel, a hotel made entirely of salt.
The Galapagos Islands
The holiday destination of dreams for animal lovers and the only place in the world that you can swim with tropical fish, sea lions and penguins all at the same time. The islands are also home to Darwin’s famous giant tortoises.
The best way to see its real nature is by spending a week at sea and island hopping your way through these stunning volcanic islands. There are a number of great tour operators providing this service with planned itineraries.
Costa Navarino, Greece
For those of you wanting to relax somewhere a little closer to home the luxury golfing resort of Costa Navarino is one of Greece’s hidden gems. The location is a three and a half hour scenic drive from Athens and it’s a lot quieter than most touristic Greek hotspots. With stunning hidden beaches and magnificent

Koh Tao, The Gulf of Thailand
A short 40-minute boat ride from Thailand’s popular island of Koh Samui is the small picturesque island of Koh Tao. With world famous dive sites, fantastic snorkelling spots and postcard perfect beaches it’s so worth the trip out to Samui’s sister. There’s a number of cute cliff edge resorts here and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to your room’s view.
