Enjoy your summer holidays in different parts of the world

Summer holidays are usually everyone's favourite. This is the time of the year when living is easy and it's the best time for travelling. Beautiful sandy beaches, cooling sea breeze and calming tropical palms are seducing all into travel mode.

With the summer months now approaching fast, those who love holidaying and foreign travel will be starting to think about their next trip. Summer holiday destinations abound, so we'll give you some ideas to start with. These are the top 7 holiday picks for 2016.

1. Dublin

City of Dublin, Ireland

Granted this city in the Republic of Ireland does not boast the beaches or warm climate of other choices, but it is a friendly city and 2016 is a big year. It is the Easter Rising centenary, with National Museum of Ireland exhibition and various other events planned to mark it. Other great places to visit in Dublin include the Teeling Whisky Distillery, which is newly opened and Dublin Klaw seafood restaurant.

2. Rio de Janeiro

Rio De Janeiro bay view

One place that certainly will offer you sun, sea and sand is the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro. From the rainforests on the hills to the glorious lake Lagoa and the stunning beaches, this is a treat – while 2016 also sees it host the Olympics, making it a must-visit for sports fanatics. For those who prefer culture, the Museum of Tomorrow, located in the port district, explores climate change.

3. Karavostasi

Summer bathers on an island beach in Greece

This resort on the north-west coast of Greece is the ideal holiday choice for those with children – as it offers wonderful clear beaches and blue ocean for swimming in, rather than noisy, rowdy nightlife. It remains a pretty secluded spot, while the ancient ruins and nature reserves ensure there is more to do here than sunbathe and swim.

4. Las Vegas

Welcome to Las Vegas sign

Las Vegas can be a marvellous holiday choice for both adult and family holidays – as it offers classy casinos like the Venetian and the Wynn for those who fancy trying their luck at poker, blackjack and other games, while also offering family friendly entertainment resorts, comedy and magic shows.

Fortunately, you can learn the rules on some games from your phone via a mobile casino site like mobilecasinoaustralia beforehand. There is something for everyone at Vegas, which is why it has remained popular for so long.

5. Kotor

Beautiful beach in Montenegro

This city in Montenegro is a beautiful site to behold, thanks to its medieval buildings – the centre point of which is the Gothic Palace turned hotel called the Hotel Astoria. There are Romeo and Juliet-style balconies and little piazzas to explore, alongside beautiful beaches and clear blue ocean – making it ideal for romantic getaways.

6. Burma

Horse wagon transport in Burma

Another great pick for those who like a warm climate is Burma – and now is the time to go as it is rapidly becoming a tourist hotspot. Its many cultural attractions include the temples in Bagan, Inwa – its ancient capital city, and the Irrawady River. This is a place to visit if you want something truly different to western countries.

7. Costa Rica

Beach palm in Costa Rica

Another humid holiday destination for those of an adventurous disposition, Costa Rica boasts rain forests that you can hike through while exploring the wildlife and fantastic surfing on its beaches. Playa Tamarindo is the place to sunbathe, while Rincon de la Vieja national park has a volcano that you can zip-line over – if the thought doesn’t terrify you.

So as you can see, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to holidaying in 2016, with so many superb places around the world to choose from for your next trip.
