This Sunday 26th January is Australia Day, A national holiday in Aus, a time to celebrate our brothers and sisters Down Under, and the only reason to party in January.
Whether you’re in Australia now, you have a special spot reserved for it in your heart, or you just love any old excuse to party, Australia day is the perfect time to celebrate all things Aussie.
Nothing beats the rush of excitement that comes with discovering amazing new places, well new to ourselves anyway. That feeling of eye opening, heart pumping, skin tingling joy the type that you only get through travel.
So now imagine stepping away from the crowd and placing yourself somewhere really different, somewhere where the locals are as excited to meet you, as you are them. The destinations below are exactly that, 14 up and coming destinations where the travel track isn’t as well worn as some of the old favourites with something a little bit special to offer to travel lovers this year.
With our new destination brochures freshly delivered to stores, and available to download for free online now, who better to give advice on the next hot destination for 2014 than brochure writer, and former STA Travel Expert Hannah Jeffrey. Hannah is one of our most clued up experts, so I’ve asked her to share her tips for places to visit next year. Here’s what she said…
So, January has rolled around again, and while we’ve got a whole heap of amazing sale offers that are here for the entire month, we’ve decided, just ‘cause we like you so much, that we’re going to up the ante that bit more and offer some incredible – and totally unbeatable we might add – savings on a selection of some of our favourite adventure tours.

We welcome guest blogger, and former resident of Tawian, Carin Bystrom to the blog this week to give us her opinion on the 5 best experiences to tick off your list in Taiwan.
While most travellers through Southeast Asia remain enamored with Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, Taiwan is often (quite unfairly) overlooked. There are still large pockets of the island still somewhat untouched from the tourism, and therefore a great place to get off the beaten track.
A beautiful island off the coast of China, just north of the Philippines, Taiwan maybe small but it is hugely blessed with breathtaking scenery, rich culture, and is full of adventures.
We love Taiwan and think it deserves a great big High Five – here are our favourite things to do there.
If December is a party, then January is the hangover. We know this feeling far too well! But to take your minds off work, resolutions, diets and detoxes, STA Travel are making sure that there is plenty to be positive about this January.
When it’s cold and miserable outside, what better way to avoid the January blues than by booking your next trip? Start 2014 as you mean to go on, by doing what you really love: travelling.
Whether you’re making a big change with a round-the-world trip or you just want to tick another country off your bucket list, make sure you don’t get #STAFOMO and check out our top deals from our epic January Sale.
