Islands are probably one of the first thing people think of when they hear the word “holiday”. After all, not many things in life are better than relaxing on a beautiful beach while sipping on a cold drink. There is just something about feeling the ocean breeze while being surrounded by the ocean, combined with the idea that you are far away from all of your worries that makes islands very appealing for a vacation.


Once per year, the website Travel+Leisure conducts a series of awards on the World’s best locations, hotels and travel experiences. This year, their readers have decided that three out of 10 beautiful islands are located in Asia, and that Palawan should win for the second year in a row. It’s no surprise however, that Palawan is such an attractive destination. It has amazing natural attractions, the space for fun activities and gorgeous hotels and resorts. We recently wrote about snorkelling on this island, which has become a hot tip for adventurous travellers.


Bali got another mention again, as did the beautiful Santorini as well as Maui – an island we have also previously written about.
