There’s nothing more special than celebrating a big milestone on an overseas holiday – and we think that Scoopon’s recent 7th birthday definitely counted as a milestone. Whether it’s somewhere new, or a favourite destination that we just keep being drawn to, we’ve listed our top 7 travel destinations to help inspire your own next milestone celebrations.
1. Seminyak, Bali
It’s no surprise that the “greatest destination on Earth”, as named by TripAdvisor, made our list. Bali has been a favourite holiday hotspot amongst Australians for generations – and offering endless luxury, gorgeous beaches and plenty to see and do, it’s not hard to see why. The cosmopolitan area of Seminyak contains a perfect combination of buzzing nightlife and stunning resort or villa sanctuaries, allowing you to live the holiday life you’ve been craving.
2. Koh Samui, Thailand
Thailand’s second biggest island, Koh Samui is the ultimate beachside escape. You’ve got the option to get close to the hustle and bustle in the town’s buzzing entertainment precinct… or if you prefer a more peaceful getaway, slink away to immerse yourself in the endless opportunities for luxury – whether that be dining in gourmet restaurants, being spoiled with a traditional massage or simply living it up on the beach.
3. Siem Reap, Cambodia
If you’re one for discovering ancient monuments and soaking up as much culture as possible, Siem Reap is the ideal destination. A popular choice for those travelling to Cambodia, Siem Reap is the gateway to the mind-blowing temples of Angkor… and after a day spent sightseeing, you’ll come back to the centre to enjoy a night of world-class wining and dining, or resting peacefully in one of the many resort retreats.
4. Paris, France
A favourite European city for many travellers, Paris’ iconic charm never fails to fuel a celebration. Known as both the City of Lights and the City of Love, a typical day in Paris could be spent tasting local delicacies in the many patisseries and boulangeries, window shopping in the endless boutique shops, or simply getting lost in the picturesque streets. And what can beat spending a birthday watching the Eiffel Tower and its famous light show?
5. Santorini, Greece
With its iconic whitewashed buildings, blue roofs and azure ocean backdrop, Santorini is one of the most recognisable destinations in not just Greece, but all of the Mediterranean. Walk amongst the gorgeous Greek villages, take in the romantic sunsets or take a dip in the seemingly never-ending blue water. Spend your nights in the buzzing nightlife, or retreat to a more peaceful location to soak up the serenity – the choice is yours.
6. Dubai, UAE
Often overlooked as merely a stopover location for many long-haul flights, Dubai is actually a fabulous travel destination in its own right. As one of the biggest cities in the UAE, Dubai has a certain electricity to it – and with designer shopping, theme parks, stunning monuments and much, much more to take in, you won’t be at a loss for things to do. Celebrate a birthday in style and enjoy all the luxuries that this glamorous city has to offer.
7. Tahiti, French Polynesia
An icon of French Polynesia, it’s easy to see why Tahiti is a favourite travel destination. Perfectly white sandy beaches, stunning azure waters and calm, peaceful Polynesian culture – Tahiti has it all. Treat yourself to a luxurious stay in one of the high-end resorts to lap up as much luxury as you can handle, or explore the picturesque island for more adventure.
