Feature: Top 5 Countries back on the Green List

Hooray to the new guidelines and the movement of so many countries from the UK’s Red List. We’ve highlighted s0me of our favourite destinations that have now become an option for UK travellers…

Mexico: Whether you want to relax under the sun across the beaches of Cancun or visit the massive bustling Mexico City, there is plenty to do in Mexico. If you’re interested in history and art then look no further than Mexico City which is home to the most museums than any other city in the world. Mexico is in particular known for its stunning street as well as well as the day of the dead festival, known as Día de Muertos; an aesthetically stunning festivity celebrated across Mexico to celebrate those that came before them. 

Indonesia: Situated in East Asia, provides a plethora of things to enjoy across its many islands. The most famous of the 17,508 islands that make up Indonesia is Bali, a tropical location surrounded by beaches and jaw-dropping natural landscapes. A popular worldwide tourist destination, Bali is also home to many impressive water parks for kids and adrenaline junkies alike. If your looking for more of a city break then look no further than the capital city, Jakarta. Host to one of the most impressive skylines East Asia has to offer, Jakarta is also home to multiple shopping malls as well as a number of museums and monuments that are important to understanding the multicultural nature of the island. Furthermore, like pretty much anywhere in Indonesia, Jakarta provides some incredible natural landscapes for anyone looking to escape the city and these can be found across many of the thousands of islands that make up Indonesia.  

Seychelles: Located on the Indian ocean, Seychelles is made up of 159 islands, of which all of those islands are basked underneath the tropical heat of the sun. Seychelles is the place to be if you want to relax, with many beaches and some of the most beautiful natural landscapes on offer. Also, Seychelles has two world heritage sites, Aldabra Atoll and Vallee de Mai; both of which are noted as a nature reserve for their unique features and landscapes. 

Brazil: One of the largest countries in the world and also one of the most varied. Brazil is truly an amazing place to visit. If you’re interested in nature, then (safely) explore the Amazon Rainforest. At a massive 2,100,000 square miles, the Amazon makes up over 60% of the worlds remaining rain forests and is completely unmatched in size and diversity of nature that is within. Beyond the Amazon are the exciting cities of Rio de Janiero, Brasillia and Sao Paulo. These cities offer the fast-moving partying lifestyle Brazil is known for alongside many famous attractions to visit such as the “Christ the Redeemer” statue that can be found in Rio de Janiero. 

South Africa: The only country in the world with three capitals: Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. South Africa has as much to offer within the city as it does across its scenic terrain. Within the city, South Africa is home to many museums such as Constitution Hall and the Apartheid Museum that illustrates the complicated history of the nation and how they have progressed past this in the modern age. South Africa is also home to many safari parks that are home to an extraordinary amount of wildlife, famously Kruger National Park, close to Johannesburg. Located near to Cape Town don’t miss a trip to Table Mountain, with uniquely flat peaks that plateaus across much of its landscape, creating a truly remarkable backdrop to one of South Africa’s capital cities.
