Eight Exhilarating Easter Escapes

Forget the chocolates. Easter is all about the holidays. Even the Easter Bunny gets around, dropping off eggs! If you haven’t booked or even thought about an Easter escape, there’s some top-notch countries waiting to be discovered. And better yet? You still have plenty of time to get on board! Feeling like a bit of heat? Egypt has you covered there. Or what about a country that feels like a winter wonderland? Russia has you sorted. What ever country you’re keen to venture to, Easter is an ideal time to explore all the culture and natural marvels on offer.

Here are eight exhilarating Easter escapes.

Turkey

Explore the diverse land of the Ottomans – from the congested craziness of Istanbul to the natural wonders of Pamukkale and ancient ruins in Ephesus, this culturally-rich country should be at the top of any traveller’s list. Taste the Moorish Turkish cuisine and drown yourself in çay (aka Turkish tea). In 9 days, you’re able to see so much including a sunrise hot-air balloon over the amazing rock formations of Cappadocia and have the opportunity to commemorate the ANZAC spirit in Gallipoli.

Egypt

Who wouldn’t want to explore museums, mummies and mountains in the Middle East? Not only is Egypt a utopia of ancient wonders but sailing on a traditional felucca boat down the Nile River or chilling on the Red Sea in Dahab is absolute bliss! Tick the Great Pyramids of Giza off your bucket list and soak up the sunshine this Easter.

Jordan

Escape to a stunningly diverse country with so much to offer on a Jordan tour over the Easter break. Embarking on a Jordan tour over the Easter holiday is the ultimate time to visit all the natural and cultural phenomena’s such as Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea.

Morocco

Morocco produces such amazing textiles, handicrafts and spices, to name a few. Getting lost in the maze of markets, bargaining for a good deal and eating from the street vendors is an experience to remember. But if it’s not the Medinas that make you want to go, it has to be the scenery. The hippy coastal town of Essaouira and the cosmopolitan city of Casablanca are such a stark contrast to the silence of the Sahara Desert.
