Cruising holidays continue to surge in popularity and it is easy to understand why when you look at the destinations on offer and all of the facilities you get included in your holiday, but there are still plenty of opportunities to find some places to visit that not everyone had heard of or is heading to.
As this infographic helps to pinpoint, you don’t have to always head to the big name destinations and there are actually plenty of ports of call to consider which are not always on everyone’s radar.
A great example of how you can easily take in a more unique cruising experience that instantly broadens your horizons and allows you to tick off a few more unique destinations, is the island of Sark in the Channel Islands.
Guernsey is an undeniably beautiful location to visit but if you take a ferry ride to neighbouring Sark whilst you are on that island, you will be richly rewarded with a location which has not been greatly influenced by tourism and has a charm and personality all of its own.
Much further afield, you might want to be adventurous and pay a visit to the Forbidden Islands, when you head to Thailand.
To get to Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar (aka The Forbidden Islands) you will need to travel to Kawthaung, which is the southern part of Myanmar, an island close to Thailand itself. Your reward for making this journey is a stunning location which offers an eco-lodge and the chance to take a nature trail through the jungle, which feels like another world altogether.
France is a magnet for tourists and the city of Paris is a delight, but the country has some lesser-known destinations that are definitely worth the effort.
The medieval town of Mon-Saint-Michel is a prime example of what awaits the more adventurous traveller and is a four hour car ride from Paris if you fancy getting out of the city for something distinctly different.
These are just some examples of the best destinations that you might never have heard of.
