Amid economic doldrums Brits look to book cheap holidays

It seems there is little good news coming from the UK these days, especially where the economy is concerned. The country is officially in a double-dip recession and criticism of the government’s handling of the matter is at its peak.

Thousands of jobs have been shed by the financial services industry, one of the country’s most important economic drivers. However the good news is that summer is around the corner and while times may be tough, the average Briton will still be looking to book cheap holidays. And the pound’s current strength against other European currencies means that once the flight is booked Brits will have magnified spending power.

Turkey and Bulgaria are the destinations where Britons will be able to get the most bang for their buck and already statistics show that savvy holidaymakers are scrambling to book flights to these destinations.

Of course there is also the other side of the Atlantic, which is always a popular destination. Vacations in Florida especially have always been popular for a gamut of reasons. Florida is not known as the sunshine state for no reason, with temperatures in the 30s the norm. Its beaches are renowned as some of the best in the world, and cities like Miami and Tampa have reputations as being some of the most exciting in the US.

South Beach is undoubtedly the most popular and well-known neighbourhood in Miami, and where many holidaymakers flock to. It is located east of the city proper and is known for its long sandy beaches, almost constant sun and Art Deco architecture. The area also boasts some of the liveliest nightclubs in the city as well as some of the very best restaurants.

There are indeed so many beautiful places I wish I could visit without the need to spend so much.

The 1,000 fingers banana photo was taken during my trip to Jurong Bird Park in Singapore. Have a great weekend ahead!
