Greece: The Danes' favorite this summer

When we talk popular, delicious and sunny countries, then we will not get around Greece.

The Danes have always loved Greece; both the capital Athens, the delicious Greek food and the many wonderful little islands, which make up the Greek archipelago.

Greece offers a mix of delicious beaches, exquisite delicacies – such as fresh olives and feta – and a rich history with plenty of cultural heritage; e.g. the Parthenon on top of the Acropolis and the knight's castle 'Grand Master's 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 little hidden treasures hidden away from the tourist crowds.

Greece is especially an obvious choice if you are planning a holiday outside the school summer holidays. The weather can become almost unbearable in July and August, when temperatures can creep up to around 40 degrees. Greece is therefore perfect in June if you want to avoid the hottest summer heat.

Thailand: Visit the land of smiles in your summer holiday 2024

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.

Thailand are known for their bounty beaches, great snorkelling and diving opportunities, magnificent temples and, not least, sumptuous and excellent food.

Go to Bangkok and experience a hectic and exciting metropolis, 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 city and head inside the jungle, which is close to the city.

If you are looking for something cultural, Thailand also has a lot to offer. Go to Chiang Rai and experience the White Temple, Wat Rong Khun, or go to the amazing 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 a rainy season during the Danish summer, so if you want sun, warmth and bounty beaches, you must travel to the islands Koh Samui and Koh Phangan or some of the small smaller islands around Koh Samui that do not experience the same rainy season as elsewhere in Thailand.

There's something for everyone here, so just adjust the compass accordingly Thailand for your summer vacation and expect smiles and a “welcome back” from the locals.

Costa Rica is 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 white bounty beaches and colorful rainforest. There are quite a few national parks around.

The area offers beautiful mountains and a friendly people, but what Cappadocia are really known for are their hot air balloons. Hundreds of colorful balloons float quietly above and between the mountain peaks, giving you the most magnificent view of the national park and the surreal landscapes.

It's reasonably hot in Turkey at that time of year, but if you can handle the heat, it's just a matter of getting away this summer.
