Trending Destinations

The Azores

Once a somewhat overlooked archipelago scattered across the Atlantic ocean, the Azores are gaining a reputation as an underrated gem. Drawing travellers with the promise of deserted beaches, spectacular scenery and affordable prices, these islands are a great destination for outdoor and adventure tourism.


Visiting Southeast Asia has been tricky the past couple of years leading to a pent-up demand that Bali is more than happy to answer. It's no surprise travellers are eager to explore its jungle-clad volcanoes, idyllic islands and rich culture - this dream destination offers something for everyone.


After a long travel ban, people are excited to return to the US - not only to visit the iconic destinations, but to experience places they've never been. Wild forests cut by white-water rivers and stretches of unspoilt coastline beg to be explored on foot, while resplendent rolling hills and vast grasslands were made for epic road trips. Meanwhile, cities seduce with soul food and merry-making and rural towns woo with quiet charm and quaint clapboard houses. 


Mexico is a standout hotspot for those looking to make up for lost time. Many are drawn here by the pristine beaches, but exploring inland reveals a treasure trove of natural wonders, from vast canyons to snow-capped volcanoes. And when it comes to urban pleasures, few places in the world can match Mexico City, with its teeming markets, vibrant galleries and exuberant festivals.


It’s no surprise that staycations are trending up.

Not only do travellers feel safer staying closer to home, many are keen to support local businesses and appreciate the wonders on their doorstep.

DK Eyewitness and Top 10 guides will help readers discover everything that Great Britain and Ireland have to offer.
