Where to go on vacation this summer 2022? You may be asking yourself the question! The summer season is fast approaching and the first reservations are in full swing! If you lack inspiration, then we highly recommend you to read this article. There are several countries to discover this year, from the territories closest to France to the must-see places on the other side of the Atlantic!
Enjoying an immersion in the heart of the Andalusian culture in Spain, getting mixed up in the frenzy and dynamism of New York or admiring the magnificent Australian beaches, there are a lot of perfect places to organize a stay under the sun... If you have a limited budget, why not go to the south of France for a lazy vacation?
From now on, discover the best destinations to discover for summer 2022!
Northern Territory and surfing in Australia!
Discovering Australia during the summer is a great idea! The country is known for its welcoming, sunny and particularly relaxed atmosphere. It's the perfect opportunity to try your hand at surfing, hiking or exploring museums and botanical gardens.
However, be sure to ask about the seasons... Being in the southern hemisphere, the Australian summer season starts in December and ends in March. So, if you plan a trip between June and August, it will be in the middle of the winter season, but it is the best time to enjoy the north and the coral reef!
During this period, and especially if you are looking for some warmth, the north of Australia is spared from rain and low temperatures. The so-called Northern Territory is well preserved from the tourist mass. It is an opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal culture, contemplate the rocky massifs and explore Ayers Rock, Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
Don't forget to ask about the Australian visa if you want to stay for several weeks and you should know that the flights are quite long so for a short week it will not necessarily be the most interesting choice, better to leave for 2 or 3 weeks!
Discover the highest tower in the world? Direction Dubai
Be careful, thisis the hottest period to visit Dubai! It is often more than 35°C and the air is very hot. But theadvantageis that the prices are much lower than during the period from November to March!
You can find 5 star hotels for less than 100 euros a night. This may be the opportunity for you to visit Dubai for a few days without blowing your vacation budget. Flights are also cheaper during this period on the Emirates website.
During your stay, take the opportunity to discover the Burj Khalifa, the highest tower in the world, but also the spectacle of the Dubai fountains below the tower and the Dubai Mall.
This is the perfect time to enjoy the city's water parks with your children!
Empire State Building, Central Park: visit New York!
Time Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building or Central Park are must-see sites that you should visit at least once in a lifetime. Although New York is not the capital of the United States, it remains one of the most emblematic cities!
Contrary to popular belief, you can visit New York during the summer. The temperatures are relatively warm, which is quite pleasant for some activities. Among the things to do during this season, don't miss the must-see Bryant Park Summer Film Festival and the free Shakespeare In The Park shows at the Delacorte Theater near Central Park.
Also, this time of year is the time to enjoy rooftop aperitifs to watch the suns et or take a boat ride on the Hudson River! If you love rollerblading, you should know that Pinball's Roller Boogie Palace is back every summer at Rockefeller Center!
Heat, sun, tapas and culture in Seville
Located in the south of Spain in the region of Andalusia, Seville offers hot temperatures during the summer (even very hot!). However, this does not prevent you from discovering Seville and visiting the most important monuments such as the Cathedral of Seville and its Giralda, theAlcazar or the Maria Luisa Park!
Seville is a very popular destination! On the one hand, the cost of living is much lower than in France and plane tickets are cheap. But not only that, the human-sized architecture of the Andalusian capital is clearly a work of art: Gothic and Andalusian style buildings, small picturesque squares, orange trees and green parks..
If you wish, consider booking a rental car to move around freely! Andalusia is a region with a rich culture, with many places to discover such as Cordoba, Cadiz, Granada, Ronda and Malaga.
Discover the island of Beauty: Corsica!
With its natural pools, coves, picturesque villages and contrasting landscapes, Corsica is one of the most popular destinations. Even though the summer season is a good time for the massive arrival of tourists (especially in the south), why not discover the island of Beauty?
The territory offers two distinct atmospheres. On the one hand, South Corsica attracts a lot of attention because of its paradisiacal character. Porto-Vecchio, Ajaccio, Bonifacio, the Lavezzi islands, Propriano and Sartene are essential stops. This part of the island is also home to the most beautiful beaches, notably those of Santa Giulia and Palombaggia!
The Haute-Corse is distinguished by its wild and authentic character. Much more preserved from mass tourism, the north hosts magnificent places such as the citadel of Calvi, the port of Bastia, Saint-Florent as well as the impressive Cap Corse! For a gourmet escapade, follow the Wine Route in Patrimonio to taste the best Corsican vintages alongside the winemakers.
The sun of the PACA region in the south of France!
France has beautiful regions that we often forget to discover. To enjoy the sun and warm temperatures, I recommend the PACA region! The south of France offers an interesting change of scenery, conducive to vacations, relaxation and idleness..
This alternative is perfect for people who are looking for a destination close to home. By going to the south with your personal vehicle, you will be able to move around in complete autonomy. Or, take the train with the TER PACA, an economical and ecological way of transportation! :-)
Close to the Mediterranean Sea, organize an excursion to the creeks of Marseille, taste the History with the castles of Luberon, the Gorges du Verdon, without forgetting theGolden Islandsof Provence... If you prefer to visit towns and villages not to be missed, here is my personal selection: Avignon, Les Baux-de-Provence, Grasse (the capital of perfume) and Cassis.
In short, the south of France is an excellent compromise accessible to all!
