It’s winter, and it’s time for Thailand

Leave the winter coats at home and pack the slops, shorts and bikinis, because warm, sunny beaches, a fascinating culture and delicious Asian food await you in Thailand. Thailand remains one of the most cost-effective countries for South Africans to visit, especially with our Red Label Holidays. The hotel and flight packages available are still affordable and well worth the money, especially when you consider the type of holiday you can have in this exquisite country. Work on your tan, have a massage on the beach or explore the hundreds of tropical islands and breath-taking beaches in the Gulf of Thailand this winter.

History, culture and sunny shores in the Mediterranean

Any location you choose in the Mediterranean will have its own special charm and attraction. Whether it’s the sunny shores and delightful culture of Cyprus, the contagious energy of Barcelona, the inviting atmosphere of Rome or Italy’s Liguria region, or the excitement of visiting the French Riviera, the Mediterranean will take away your winter blues like no other destination. Enjoy delicious Mediterranean seafood as you sip on some of the finest wine in the world and the summer sun of the Mediterranean kisses your shoulders. Explore the ruins and museums, or simply laze on the beach. In the Mediterranean, the choice is all yours.

Log fires and snowy peaks

Do you love wrapping up and snuggling in front of a log fire after an exciting day skiing or hiking amongst wintery mountain ranges? Well then The Drakensberg Mountains will be just for you. Soak up the serenity and calming influence of the mountains as you sit on your verandah, try your luck fishing for trout, or enjoy a day’s hike with splendid views. And if you’re looking for something more adventurous, why not book a hotel through Flight Centre and navigate your way up Sani Pass or visit Lesotho for the day and go skiing at Afri-ski?

Wine tasting & mountain ranges

What could be better than spending the day wine tasting with the beautiful snow-capped Boland mountain range serving as a backdrop? If you’re looking for snow this winter, there’s a good chance that the Ceres Matroosberg Reserve will satisfy your wishes. Explore the beauty of this area by day, and then keep warm and cosy in your cabin or hotel room at night with a log fire and a glass of wine, purchased from one of the local vineyards.

From flying to the warm sunny shores of the Mediterranean or Thailand, to making the most of the Drakensberg and the Ceres Matroosberg mountains, Flight Centre has some super deals in store for you on flights, accommodation and more. Speak to your Flight Centre Consultant today to find out more!
