Make that trip extra special by opting for a ‘festival’ departure and witness some of the world’s most interesting and enjoyable local festivities! These include elephant parades in Sri Lanka, the ancient Inca festival Inti Raymi in Peru and the Songkran water festival in Thailand. Enjoy uplifting music, colourful dancers and artists, traditional cuisine and above all have lots of fun!
