Top 10 baby boomer luxury travel destinations


Planning a holiday but unsure where to travel? There are plenty of holiday hotspots currently enjoying popularity from all ages and demographics, providing travellers with plenty of choice. To help you make your decision, here are the top ten luxury travel destinations for baby boomers:

  1. Burma
    One of the greatest joys of visiting foreign countries is being able to explore beautiful areas seemingly untouched by travellers or that are on the cusp of something new, important and of great historical importance. Burma (now Myanmar) ticks both these boxes and with the recent lifting of numerous economic sanctions is set to become an incredibly popular travel destination in the next few years.
  2. Sri Lanka
    Sri Lanka is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and serene travel destinations in the world, combining a beautiful and friendly local population with absolutely incredible natural landscapes and wildlife. With a variety of Sri Lanka Luxury Travel Tours available, it’s just a case of finding the right itinerary for you.
  3. India
    In a country as large as India, there’s certainly something for everyone. Whether it’s trekking in the Himalayas or spending your time exploring the vibrant and chaotic metropolises of the subcontinent, you’ll never find yourself anything short of amazed at life in this much-adored country.
  4. Italy
    Nowhere in Europe can match the romance of Italy’s finest cities, towns and villages. With history seeping from every weathered stone and every rolling hillside, it’s virtually impossible for you to leave without feeling utterly enchanted.
  5. Turkey
    Turkey has fascinated travellers from all over the globe for centuries, becoming almost mythological in the process. This sense of history and exoticism still lingers today, bringing people together from both East and West to form an incredible and enticing melting pot of a nation.
  6. Morocco
    Morocco Luxury Travel Tours are the perfect way to explore the incredible North African nation, allowing you to wander the streets of the iconic cities of Casablanca and Marrakech, while also taking in ancient sites, fascinating museums and brilliant bazaars.
  7. Laos
    There are few places and people noticeably more connected to their natural environment than Laos. Discovering the abundant natural riches spread across the nation, as well as integrating with the gentle local population are two joys not to be missed by any traveller.
  8. Cambodia
    If discovering the history of a place through its stunning architectural heritage is something you enjoy, there is one place that has to be at the top of your list. While the extraordinary Angkor Wat is world-renowned, there are hundreds of lesser-known spots just as beautiful and sure to blow you away.
  9. Japan
    Even those that consider themselves well travelled are usually surprised at just how unique and alien Japanese culture can be. A place of incredible extremes, there’s no better way to explore it than with the help of local people that can give you an insightful glimpse into just how this enigmatic society works.
  10. Vietnam
    Having established a strong and distinct national identity over hundreds of intriguing years of history, Vietnam is a country that demands visitors spend a respectable period of time exploring its treasures, cultures and areas of outstanding beauty. Vietnam Luxury Travel Tours will ensure you get the most of your visit, taking in all the sights and sounds this area is famous for along the way.
