The new year is fast approaching and so are the January sales, making now a great time to begin thinking about where you’d like to travel to in 2023! We have compiled a list of what we believe will be some of the most sought-after trips to embark on next year.


While cruises are stereotypically linked to the older generation and can be expensive, they have become increasingly popular amongst people of all ages in recent years. Cruises are convenient and efficient due to the range of amenities that can be found onboard, giving them a similar feel to a luxurious all inclusive holiday, however there’s the added thrill of days at sea and new destinations to explore. There are a wide variety of options to choose from depending on the vibe that you are looking for. Additionally, many cruise lines have introduced an open-seating system which provides passengers with a more flexible and relaxed feel when dining, giving guests the option to dine when and where they please – without seating restrictions.

European Capitals of Culture 

In 2022, the European Commission named three destinations the European Capitals of Culture: Esch in Luxembourg, Kaunas in Lithuania, and Novi Sad in Serbia. Esch boasts gorgeous architecture and scenery — its warm and friendly feel is one of the main qualities that attracts tourists to this quaint city. Additionally, Kaunas is a fantastic option for those looking to visit somewhere with a rich history. This city is home to Kaunas Castle (a traditional gothic castle that houses breathtaking art and artefacts), Pažaislis Monastery and Church, and numerous museums and historical tours. Located on the Danube River, the north Serbian town of Novi Sad is filled with ancient buildings, most of which are open to the public, making for a wonderful day trip. For those interested in the historical culture of this spectacular city, visits to the Petrovaradin Fortress and the statue of Svetozar Miletić are an absolute must.
