Utterly compelling and astonishingly exotic, Vietnam is all about incredible heritage and breathtaking natural beauty that quickly becomes addictive. From sleepy fishing villages to the rooftop discos, the age-old tradition meets cosmopolitan modernity in this Asian country. Vietnam has everything on the offer platter - right from culture to cuisine, chills and thrills, nature to nightlife and much more. Plan your Vietnam holiday now for some unforgettable experiences!
Unlike other countries boasting about their ‘firsts’ or the ‘biggests’; Oman talks about its rich heritage and pure natural settings! The country’s low-rise towns retain their traditional charm while the Bedouin values remain at the heart of every Omani. From natural beauty to spectacular mountains, wind-blown deserts to luxurious desert camping, from pristine coastline to turtle-watching; your Oman holiday will be packed with lifetime experiences! It is an ultimate choice for travellers who are looking to explore the modern Arabia while still craving for the sense of its ancient Arabian soul.
If you are the kind of traveller who becomes mesmerized by wildlife programmes on television then the new seventh wonder of the world - The Serengeti in Tanzania – is the place for you. This is where the world’s largest and most spectacular animal migration takes place. In fact, three of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa are in Tanzania! These natural wonders are the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti National Park and Mt. Kilimanjaro. Tanzania offers the experienced traveller an unforgettable beauty of nature, wildlife and beaches –away from the crowds, back to the essence.
The nature has been biased when it comes to Fiji. It is every beach bum’s vision of nirvana as it is blessed with excellent turquoise water, inland rivers, authentic culture and sun-kissed beaches. Apart from the land adventures, the underwater scenery in Fiji is spectacular. In fact, it houses some of the most accessible and finest dive sites in Pacific. Be it for families, couples or honeymooners; Fiji is a perfect gateway for holidaymakers in 2015!
Being rated as one of the top 10 countries to visit in 2015 by Lonely Planet; Philippines is an excellent gateway for Indian travellers looking for shopping, nightlife, adventure or beach holidays! Featuring more than 7000 islands, Philippines provide an array of adventure activities that can raise any adrenaline junkie’s pulse. The country is best defined by its happy-go-lucky people, exotic coastline, teeming mega-cities, graffiti-splashed ‘jeepneys’ (local transport vehicle), emerald rice fields and fuzzy water buffaloes! So get on musafir.com and book the best of Philippines holiday package now!
So ditch the usual and head for an unusual destination in 2015!
