Planning your holiday list but aren’t quite sure where to start? Here are our top destinations for 2023! From city breaks to spa towns, we’ve covered it all!

A new year is a chance for a new travel list and time to book your holiday before anyone else at work! Whether it’s to tick off destinations that remained unvisited in the previous year or to discover new ones that caught your eye, it’s never too early in the year to start planning where you want to fly so that you can plan out an itinerary and get the most out of your holiday destination!

The world is your oyster, so it’s difficult to pinpoint where you wish to travel to… magical Maldives? The stunning deserts of Egypt? Or the breathtaking mountains of Switzerland? We get it; we’d be confused too! We’ve narrowed down the top four destinations we think you should plan for. Book a private jet charter to make it unique and luxurious! Why not travel in comfort and style and make your flight experience the smoothest it’s ever been? To read more about the locations that we think you should visit throughout 2023, keep reading below!

Top Destinations for 2023 #1: Dubai

Dubai is probably one of those locations which will remain on the list for the foreseeable future… What’s not to love about Dubai? With its vibrant and busy Expo City that’ll help you appreciate and celebrate cultures from all over the world to bring ‘shop till you drop’ to life, the second-largest mall in the world will most likely have everything that your heart desires. And if you want to take a break while shopping in the 1200 retail stores, it offers, why not visit the aquarium or the underwater zoo within the mall itself?

Dubai is also a hot destination for gold, with an entire market dedicated to that. The Gold Souk is one of Dubai’s oldest markets, and the intricate and finely crafted jewelry pieces leave you spoiled for choice!

Or, maybe you want to spend most of your time outdoors and not in a mall… In that case, Jumeirah Beach is simply waiting for you! From snorkeling to cycling around the beach and walking along the Dubai skyline during sunset… you can pick your activity!

Top Destinations for 2023 #2: Canada

The second destination we recommend visiting this year is Canada. And not just one city! If you want to get a feel of Europe without actually being in Europe, Montreal has to be one of the most authentic places to get that French feel. The Mont Royal Park looks like something out of a fairytale store, with incredible woodlands, a lake, and even a sculpture garden!

And, of course, you can’t go to Canada without trying the iconic poutine! We’re convinced the poutine alone will encourage you to come back and visit again. Did you know poutine bars at weddings were a thing? Neither did we…

If you’re looking for a bit of a city break, we recommend Ottawa. It might seem like an obvious choice, being the capital city, but it is a location with some of the richest and most majestic architecture in the whole world. With the iconic Parliament Hill and museums to fill in the gaps in your knowledge, you’ll return knowing about Canada and its history! And you can do all that while also stopping by one of the oldest farmer’s markets in the world!

Top Destinations for 2023 #3: Germany

For a more wintery location, we can’t recommend Christmas time in Germany enough! Why not book a holiday to see Germany’s oldest Christmas market in Dresden for yourself? It really is a movie-like experience like no other, watching the blown-glass ornaments being made in front of you, cute wood-carved miniatures, and ceramics being just some of the souvenirs that you could take home from your trip!

And if you’re tired from your excursions in Dresden, it might be a good idea to stop by  Baden-Baden, the famous spa town known across Europe! We can’t possibly think of anything more relaxing than spending hours at the thermal springs (it might be a bit hard to leave) and stopping by the salt caves for possibly the best nap you’ll ever have in your life. The health benefits and properties span thousands of years, and the salt caves are truly a beautiful experience that is a must-see for everyone at least once in their lifetime!

Top Destinations for 2023 #4: Athens

Another remarkable hotspot for history being made, you’d be surprised at how much Ancient Athens can pack into one place. Athens is Europe’s oldest capital—so don’t be fooled by its size! A destination that’s always been a hotspot, there’s no time like the present to visit Athens, Greece.

The iconic amphitheater is a bit of a no-brainer. Who goes to Athens to visit without visiting that historical sight? And with more shows than ever being scheduled to run in 2023, who knows what you might witness for yourself?

And of course, the Parthenon and the Temple of Olympian Zeus both deserve their own days for you to go and visit and revel in, in perhaps some of the most pleasant climates you could possibly wish for when going on holiday! You’ll definitely find plenty of amazing sites to visit while on vacation in Athens.
