Greece: The Danes' favorite for the summer holidays
Greece offers a mix of delicious beaches, exquisite delicacies such as fresh olives and feta and a rich history with plenty of cultural heritage such as the Parthenon on top of the Acropolis and the Knights 'Castle' Grand Master 'Palace' on Rhodes. In addition, there is of course ample opportunity for Shopping og nature experiences.
Greece has both famous places you just have to experience and small hidden treasures tucked away from the tourist crowds. Here is something for everyone so finally set course for Greece this summer.
Thailand: Visit the land of smiles during your summer vacation
Our second offer is much further away from Denmark's borders, but an at least as big summer holiday favorite with the Danes, namely Thailand, - the land of smiles.
Head to Bangkok and experience a hectic and exciting big city, where the Thai tuktuk taxis fly past you, and where the food markets abound with fruit, vegetables, meat and spices - both those on land and the floating markets. Take a break from the busy big city and take in the jungle, which is close to the city.
If you are looking for something cultural, then Thailand also has plenty to offer. Go to Chiang Rai and experience the White Temple, Wat rong khun, or head to the stunning island Phuket to see The Big Buddha.
If you have had enough big city and culture, then of course there is what Thailand is probably best known for, and which they make top marks: A sea of exquisite bounty islands and paradise beaches.
Thailand has lots of beautiful islands from the great celebrities Koh Samui og Phuket to small lesser known islands like Koh Chang and Koh Tao. Here is something for every taste, so just set the compass accordingly Thailand for your summer vacation and expect smiles and a “welcome back” from the locals.
Costa Rica: Summer vacation for nature and animal lovers
Third bid on the list is enchanting Costa Rica.
Costa Rica located in Central America and is an overlooked gem. With a location between Nicaragua to the north and Panama in the south, Costa Rica also gives you easy opportunity to experience even more of the continent.
Costa Rica is a pure paradise of whites bounty beaches and colorful rainforest. There are a number of national parks around. If you are an animal lover, you can make a difference in several places to save the animals, either practically or financially. Among other things, you can enter the Jaguar Rescue Center, where they rescue toucans and sloths that have been injured.
Costa Rica is a small country the size of Denmark. It also means that there are maps to the sea on both sides, where the crystal clear blue water entices for a delicious dip. Then your summer vacation should also be a beach vacation - mixed with a little water sports and surfing - then Costa Rica should be on your list.
Turkey: Soar into a wonderland
Our fourth recommendation goes to Turkey.
Most people think enough Salt, beach and cheap drinks when they think of Turkey. Alanya and Antalya are excellent examples of this with miles of sun loungers right down to the Mediterranean, delicious beach restaurants and azure waters.
But Turkey is much more than that. Are you heading towards the city of millions Istanbul, you stumble into a fantastic mix of modern metropolis and ancient culture. In addition, Istanbul is also the only city of millions in the world, located on entire continents; namely both in Europe og Asia.
If you go further east into the country, you hit Cappadocia.
The area offers beautiful mountains and a friendly people, but what Cappadocia really known for are their hot air balloons. Hundreds of colorful balloons that hover quietly over and between the mountain peaks, giving you the most magnificent views of the National Park and the surrealistic landscapes.
It's reasonably hot in Turkey at that time of year, but if you can handle the heat, just get going this summer.
Croatia: Beach holiday beyond the usual
Our fifth bid is a little closer to home, namely beautiful Croatia.
Croatia is perfect for summer. The country offers crystal clear water, beautiful islands and Mediterranean food with lots of flavor. With a coastline of over 600 km and over 1000 islands there is ample opportunity to frolic in the sea, sail from island to island and taste all the good from the sea.
If you are looking for culture on your summer holiday, then Croatia also has plenty to offer. If you go to Dubrovnik, probably one of Croatia's most famous cities, there is a sea of architectural wonders such as St. John's Fortress, Sponza Palace, Rector's Palace, Franciscan Monastery and Dominican Monastery.
In addition, Croatia is also an excellent starting point to visit Balkans and some of the other countries of the former Yugoslavia and environs. Slovenia, Serbia, Hungary og Bosnia Herzegovina borders all of Croatia and is obvious to visit on the way back to Denmark.
Discover Austria, Spain, Ireland, Canada and Tanzania during your summer vacation
Of course, there are also many great opportunities for summer vacation in the rest of the world.
Austria is a country that many associate with ski holidays and snow, but it's actually also a great travel destination for summer. Visit the capital Vienna with all the cultural experiences the city has to offer or take on drive yourself vacation through the country - perhaps on the way to some of the more southern countries like France, Italy or Portugal.
Do you need less to bathe, but still have an interest in culture and nature, is Ireland a fantastic bid. Ireland offers some of the most beautiful landscapes imaginable. Yes, in fact, so beautiful and majestic that large parts of the series Game of Thrones was recorded here.
Should you had nature for all the money, then is Canada the ultimate travel destination for your summer trip. Huge natural landscapes, snow-capped mountains, breathtaking lakes and a rich wildlife make it an experience you will remember for a lifetime.
And if you belong to those who just love animal experiences, then is Tanzania the answer. With some of Africa's best national parks and that one world famous island of Zanzibar er Tanzania the answer to your summer vacation plans if you are running around with a desire to see lions, elephants or hippos in its natural surroundings.
