Hi,

I have 10 days holiday from 24 Dec to 2 Jan to go anywhere in the world from the UK. Could anyone give me some advice on where to go for such a short space of time?

I like to explore places I have never been to before, where there is sunshine. Oh, I'm on a budget too!

Thanks

Hi
I would go to Malta,its only 2hrs 30mins,www.maltabargains.com
It has a few good beaches and lots to explore and all by cheap bus and everyone speaks English and its sunshine.
Tropicana Hotel in Paceville is cheap and confortable(dont need to book) and Paceville is the centre of nightlife as the rest of Malta closes down appox 7 oclock at night.
You can go to Sicily by Hoovercraft in 1hr 30mins or have a day trip to Mt Etna to see its active volcano.
You could then catch a bus home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or go www.ryanair.com from Sicily to England or anywhere very cheap.
Tunisia only a boattrip away from Malta.
So book up and away you go for an enjoyable Christmas and New Year.
Have a great time.
al de bes
Me,I'am going Thailand then Philippines but long time.

Thanks Jackboy,

I was thinking about going somewhere a little further away, like Eqypt, but not sure if 10 days s enough.

Anyone else got a few ideas?

Thailand is a nice place to go and there are alot of cheap flights going there...and once you are there you hardly spend any money.(excluding all the booze) It will be beautiful weather, spend a few days by the beach, then in bangkok itself...if you have time you can even go up north to Chiang Mai. After the tsunami hit most hotels created very good deals, a year after the disaster im not sure if its still like that. I defentily recomend thailand though! You could always go online and see what place in asia you can get the cheapest flight to (since your on a budget) and go there (easy way to decide).
anyways...gd luck. Wishing i could go anywer i wanted during xmas.
