Where To Next? Travel Experiences with the WOW Factor
Want your next holiday to have the ‘wow’ factor? These travel experiences should be top of your list!
Flight Centre has just launched its WOW List for 2020 - an expert’s guide to the top 50 travel experiences for the year ahead.
From sky to sea, rail to road and treks to tents, there are so many bucket-list experiences, it makes it tricky to plan where to next!
This is the fourth year that Flight Centre has compiled this list, analysing extensive customer data collated from more than 800 stores Australia wide. They then consult their in-house travel experts and consider reports from trusted suppliers, which results in a final top 50 places on most people's travel wish list - and we can see why!
We love all the suggestions on Flight Centre's WOW list but below are our favourites because the destination or the experience also offers an opportunity to relax and unwind, nurturing the body and mind.
We have chosen destinations also known for their spa offerings and wellness retreats, along with experiences that allow you to wander through nature and breathe in the fresh air, and itineraries incorporating exercise and adventure if you like to challenge the body as well as the mind.
Why no combine one of these Flight Center travel experiences with a visit to a wellness retreat or schedule a few spa treatments along the way. These destinations offer a plethora of wellness experiences for a day or for a week.
Of course, one our favourite resort destinations is Bali - combine fine dining one week and then visit one of favourite Wellness Resorts - you might like REVĪVŌ.
And right on our doorstep is the beautiful Great Barrier Reef where you can take your pick of magical islands and luxury resorts. Enjoy the diving, be at one with nature and add a spa treatment or two during the week. Qualia offers five-star luxury on Hamilton Island but there are options for all budgets - we share a few in our post on the Whitsundays.
Our WOW travel experience top picks which you can tie in with a spa experience or wellness getaway include:
