Although, Switzerland is a fantastic holiday destination and I love getting away in the mountains, me and my OH are craving some winter sun. Where do people here jet off to for some warmth in the winter months?
We went to Singapore last year and loved it. We are looking for some where different this year. Criteria is:
Beach or Pool resort
Not many or no children
Not phased by long haul
Budget up to 4 k CHF (or 3 k pounds as we paid last year)
Looking around February time
Any ideas? Help would be appreciated.
The best way to save water is to bathe together
Places I have been and loved (with those criteria, though it was a few years ago now..)
Tahiti- but Moorea is decidedly cheaper, and a lot more isolated, than the main island.
Sharm el shek (didnt really like this- a bit to phony/touristy for me, but it might just be others cup of thee)
I guess Rarotonga might be a little out of the way?
Thailand is our absolute favorite, and there is a direct overnight flight to Bangkok on Swiss - and they frequently have sales.
We also love Dahab - it's cheap, short flight (5 hours) and not as manic as Sharm. The village has the perfect amount of shops and restaurants, and the beach is really nice. Lots of water activities if you're keen.
My m-i-l tends to stay within Switzerland but she'll go down to Ticino for some warm, usually in spring though.
My brother-in-law and his wife head further afield, not so much necessarily looking for warm I guess... They've been to Prague, make frequent trips to Italy (some family on their father's side there) and to Gibraltar.
