The island of Crete is among the world’s top five holiday destinations for those seeking to get the best variety of culture, relaxation and entertainment, according to luxury travel specialist Sovereign, which has just launched an interactive tool to help users find their perfect holiday spot.
The new tool breaks down the most popular vacation destinations around the world into entertainment, culture and relaxation, which cover everything from national landmarks and zoos, to museums and spas, and offers a quick way for travelers to choose their next holiday destination.
“It can sometimes be difficult to agree on the perfect holiday destination when you’re not traveling alone. Everyone has their own preferences, which is why it’s helpful to be pointed towards the top destinations that really do offer something for everyone,” said Helen Adamson, Sovereign brand and commercial Director.
Sovereign’s interactive tool also allows users to filter their options, highlighting the destinations offering the overall greatest holiday balance.
This said, according to Sovereign in terms of greatest holiday balance, Italy’s Sardinia was named the best holiday hotspot for all types of vacationers, followed by Rome as the best choice for entertainment and culture, the Dominican Republic, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, and Crete in Greece.
Referring to Crete, the Sovereign report highlights the island’s offerings including tours, sights and landmarks, museums, shops, zoos and aquariums, water and amusement parks, nightlife, sports, fun & games, nature areas and parks, beaches, and spas and wellness facilities.
Under “Best Balanced Breaks”, Sovereign suggests a variety of options in all of the above areas on offer on Crete, including everything from adventure and beaches to culture and nightlife. “Hot, sunny, and formerly home to the labyrinth with its minotaur, after a day of sunbathing, Crete is great for local food in the tavernas and has over 180 nightlife hotspots,” Sovereign says.
Completing the list of top 10 ‘best balance’ destinations are Majorca in Spain, Cancun, Mexico, Portugal’s Algarve, Sri Lanka, and Bali in Indonesia.
