Where in the world..?

Clubbing holidays are usually synonymous with the likes of San Antonio in Ibiza, Malia in Crete or Magaluf in Majorca. These legendary hotspots have earned their reputation as being among the best clubbing scenes and nights out ever known.

But what about those up and coming nightspots that are working hard behind the scenes to earn their stripes? Somewhere like Sunny Beach, for example? Where, I hear you ask?

Sunny Beach is in Bulgaria where, as the name suggests, it’s hot hot hot. It’s bordered by Greece and Turkey in the South and boasts one of Europe’s longest beaches - no less than 6km of golden sands - which is lapped by the gorgeous waters of the Black Sea. Here you’ll find banana boats, water sports, scuba diving, even beach volleyball. But let’s face it, that’s not the reason you’re here.

This is a growing resort that’s moving fast up the rankings of club 18-30 holiday style getaways. And as long as Bulgaria stays out of the Euro you’ll also get a lot more for your money. The nightlife is sizzling and you’ll find everything here from huge-scale events by Twice as Nice and Hed Kandi to foam parties, bar crawls and 80s school discos.

Sunny Beach might be considered a young upstart compared to the likes of San An, but it won’t stay that way for long - so get in there quick before it really takes off, and then you can boast to your heart’s content about how you got here first. This resort really knows how to party and all the big-name DJs are coming here to spin the latest tunes. With thousands more coming here every year to find out what the fuss is all about, it’s certainly building up to something big. Watch this space.

Package holidays to the US beckon as summer hits

The UK is slowly emerging from a long and rainy winter and the joys of summer are beckoning to many who are tired of bad news of recession and joblessness. And of course uppermost among the joys of summer are holidays abroad.

Many will be trying to save money in these hard times, and will be concluding that the best way of doing so is to book package holidays rather than try to arrange flights, accommodation, transportation and so forth.

Among the most popular travel destinations for Brits are Spain, Portugal and Greece. But for those who want to venture further afield, the number one destination is the USA.

One of the reasons the US is so popular is the sheer variety that it offers. On the east coast there is of course New York, Boston and Miami, three of the most exciting city’s in the world, for very different reasons.

New York is the most famous city in the world, with a culture and people all its own. Whether it be riding its famous subway, visiting the Statue of Liberty or gawping at the Empire State Building the Big Apple has tons to see and do.

Boston, one of the country’s oldest city’s is perfect for history buffs or for those wanting to savor the vibe of New England. Miami is much different from both cities. More modern, brash and lively. It is known for its beaches, clubs and restaurants, all crowded with beautiful, sun-bronzed people.

USA vacations can also offer a lot of value for money, especially as the pound is traditionally stronger than the dollar, so holidaymakers from the UK can maximise their spending power, an important factor considering that the US is a shopping Mecca with few rivals.

For those in search of a vacation to the US, booking online through a travel agency such as Thomas Cook is probably the best way to find a deal.
