Hi,
me and my girlfriend are looking for somewhere to go on holiday in the summer (end of july/ start of august).

We want somewhere with a bit of sight seeing and activities during the day, close enough to restaurants and bars for whenever we feel like going out for something different, and hopefully a good local cuisine. We would be looking at All Inclusive holidays as we just like to know that at least the basic food and drinks will be included and we can budget for other stuff accordingly.
We've been to Kos (close to Kos Town) last year and i was in Agadir Morroco a couple of summers ago.
Thanks to who may be able to help :)

Well first you would have to say WHERE you are going FROM. Then you would need to say how LONG you want to go for. Then, how much MONEY you want to spend. Finally, what your INTERESTS are. Without that basic information you are just asking people to waste their time taking shots in the dark.

Judging by your mention of Kos and all inclusive, you are not independent travellers but more of the package tourist type. Personally, I consider all inclusive tour company packages to be a suckers game. Yes, you know the price in advance, but for what? Mediocre at best food and cheap quality alcohol.

Why not try being independent, that would be 'different'.

For example, book a return flight to Zurich and take a train to Davos. Book a week with half board (making it all-inclusive food wise but with a first class restaurant) in the Hotel Bellevue (see link). The 'guest card' provides you with all your transportation needs in the area. http://bellevuewiesen.com/

As for what there is to do, "In Summer you can hit a golf ball ‘with altitude’ like Tiger Woods. Catch the pro peloton in Le Tour de Suisse. Ride free-of-charge to The Magic Mountain on our clockwork railway system. Enjoy the riot of flowers on the Schatzalp and wander 700km of marked pathways amongst the glorious Grisons panorama. Learn to windsurf on Davosersee. Drop a downhill bike through 10,000m of swooping single-track. Take the challenge of our Swiss-Alpine ultra-marathon. Go river-rafting in the morning and rock-climbing the same afternoon. Swim, soak and steam at the Eau-Là-Là outdoor water-park. Catch the Bernina Express to St Moritz or the Ticino." That's just a sample of what there is to do.

you dont do all inclusive if you want good local cuisine. you do all inclusive if you are afraid of life.

Victor, your Original Post is way, way too vague for anyone to help you.

Have fun with your research.

Cheers,
Terry

Maybe choose a part of the world you have never been to.

It is not difficult to travel on your own free of any package tour. Young backpackers in school or just out seem able to figure out how to buy plane tickets and book hotels or hostels plus find places to eat at.

Choose the location to visit first. Then pull up an airline website that has flights to that country. Find the price for round trip flights for your particular dates. What's left from your trip budget after paying for flights is for hotels and day to day spending. If arriving off season for some countries you might want to book the first night or two and then wing it from there. For many countries you can book day tours in person. Depends on where you are.

If you need to get a visa ahead of time or just show up depends on the country you choose to visit. (Besides the country you choose to visit, also how long you intend to visit may decide if you purchase a tourist visa ahead of time or enter free.) Google search can help you with visa requirements. Your Home Office or State Department may have information for particular countries on their websites.

Buy an old fashioned travel guide for any country you are interested in. Some travel guides have a few hotel suggestions and maybe a breakdown for various areas in big cities. Travel guides usually have something for things to see and do, etc.

Choose a country to visit first!

Up to you.
