I’m sure you will agree that the year 2020 hasn’t been the best year for many of us. People will look back on it as the year that everything changed. People were forced to stay indoors and to stay away from friends and family in an effort to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The travel and tourism industry essentially crashed with countries imposing travel restrictions and closing their borders.
These are 7 places for holiday to travel in 2021 after the pandemic is over.

When leisure travel does commence and we are once again allowed to get on planes, here are the top 7 holiday destinations you might want to include in your plans.
Our number one of seven places for holiday in 2022 is New Zealand
In 2020, the rest of the world drew its attention to the little South Pacific nation of New Zealand when they were one of the very few countries around the world not to be ravished by the coronavirus.
The government’s quick action and its citizen’s adherence to new health regulations quickly made New Zealand the poster child for disaster response. Obviously, the country is also poised to be the first to bounce back in 2021.
The moment flight restrictions are lifted, a lot of people have it on their list to travel to New Zealand and not just because they have no coronavirus there. Movies like The Hobbit and the entire Lord of the Rings franchise was shot against the scenic backdrop that is the country of New Zealand. They boast breathtaking views of all manners of the landscape.
For the adventurer and outdoor enthusiast, there is never a dull moment spent in New Zealand. You can go on a hike, surf the waves, or visit the numerous national parks scattered around the country. There is always something to do in the Land of the Long White Cloud.
Continuing in our list of the top seven holiday places for 2022 we have Botswana.
This unassuming African nation was also one of the few countries that was least affected by Covid-19 thanks in part to the rapid response of the authorities and quickly closing borders as well as imposing a nation-wide lockdown. Despite other countries counting daily cases in triple digits, Botswana was counting theirs in single digits, if at all.
Just like New Zealand, the very minimal cases in Botswana made them an ideal holiday location the moment leisure travel is permitted once more.
It’s the perfect place to visit for people still nervous about getting infected and for the adventurers and thrill-seekers, Botswana offers enough activity to satisfy a lifetime.
You can meet and interact with the San Bushmen native to the Kalahari Desert. This indigenous hunter-gatherer-group conquered the lands about 20,000 years ago and boasts very impressive survival skills. Going on a game drive is one of the most exciting things to do in the country and has thrilled wildlife enthusiasts and experts alike.
Number three in our list of the top seven places for holiday in 2022 we have South Africa.
There’s nothing like going on safari in South Africa to satisfy all your wildlife cravings. The city at the very tip of the continent boasts a lot of things to do and everyone all over the world is quite eager to try them all. There is the Kruger National Park, Maclear’s Beacon, and Cape of Good Hope to visit. You can go on a great white shark encounter in its cold waters. Or spent the day at Boulders Beach.
Continuing in our list of the top seven destinations for holiday in 2022 we have Austria.
A lot of people dream of visiting Europe and all its sights and amazing history. But for your Eurotrip in 2021, you might want to consider Austria as one of your destinations.
Central Europe has always been a favorite destination for travelers seeking a little more variety outside of Madrid, Paris, Barcelona, and Rome. Austria is the crowning glory of this region and boasts spectacular sights, quaint little towns, and deserted tourist spots. Expect to see even less crowd once leisure travel commences this 2021.
Our next pic for the top places for holiday for 2022 is Santorini (Greece)
We’ve seen the pictures of this beautiful Greek island. It is most distinguished by the whitewashed cubiform houses scattered that clings to the cliffs of the underwater crater.
The two major towns, Fira and Oia, overlook the Aegean Sea and is a favorite port-of-call for cruise ships back when travel wasn’t so restricted. This popular Greek destination used to only be accessible to the rich since getting there requires a ferry ride or a private yacht with a GPS tracker. But when travel commences, expect to get a lot of specials and discounts as a way to jumpstart tourism once more on the island.
Santorini is also a popular stop for Mediterranean cruises.
The beautiful town of Whistler (Canada) is our next pick of the seven places for holiday in 2022
Canada’s most popular ski resort, Whistler, is located in between two mountains: Blackcomb and Whistler. With these two peaks, the place is considered by many to be North America’s best winter sports getaway. But even if you don’t ski or snowboard, there are a ton of things to do in Whistler.
The village has a lot of accommodations, restaurants, and shops to enjoy. There are also art galleries, gift shops, and boutique stores to visit. Around the village, there are rivers, lakes, and forests to see that only require a short scenic drive. In the summer, skiers make way for hikers and mountain bikers to take on the challenging trails.
Lastly Byron Bay (Australia) is another perfect spot for holiday in 2022
Australia, just like its neighbour New Zealand, also didn’t suffer from COVID as much as the rest of the world. The quick action of the authorities through border closure and city-wide lockdowns prevented the spread of the virus.
It stands to reason that both these countries are in a position to quickly bounce back once everything returns back to normal.
The coastal town of Byron Bay is world-renowned for being an amazing surf town. The town is also a popular destination for people who just want to get away from urban life. Byron Bay is perfect for people who want to experience small-town life right by the sea. Besides surfing, sunbathing and scuba diving are popular times. Air-based activities are also popular like sky diving, ballooning, and gliding is offered.
If water and air activities aren’t your things, then nature walks, mountain bike tours, and horse riding are wonderful options to do.
