It's getting to that time of year – in the northern hemisphere anyway – where the days are short and the weather is pretty horrendous and with Christmas still a little far away there isn't much to look forward to.

Except planning 2016 holidays!

We thought we'd pick 21 sweet destinations to get you thinking about where and when you're going to be traveling to next year. There's something for everybody here – so all you have to do now is go ahead and book something!

1. Lofoten is a tiny village in Norway that is so beautiful you can't even imagine it being real. Like something out of a movie

2. The Whitsunday Islands in Australia. No better place in the world to spend an afternoon lounging


3. The Grand Caynon. Carved naturally over millions of years and getting more magical looking by the day

5. Bora Bora in the Pacific Ocean where the sea looks like this all year around – and you can walk for miles in shallow water

6. Oh to be sitting in this pool in Santorini, Greece

7. Or taking it easy and watching the animals in the Maasai Mara in Kenya


8. If you're into adventure and diving in particular – stunning and some dive spots are only reachable by helicopter

#kojaro #Belize #TheBlueHole #کجارو #بلیز جذاب‌ترین مناطق گردشگری بلیز حفره آبی حفره آبی (The Blue Hole) در نزدیکی یک جزیره مرجانی 4047 هکتاری قرار گرفته و یکی از عجایب طبیعت به حساب می‌آید. این حفره به دلیل ریزش مداوم غارهای آهکی در دوران کاهش جهانی سطح آب دریا حاصل از آخرین عصر یخبندان ایجاد شده است. حفره آبی یک پدیده عجیب جغرافیایی به حساب می‌آید و با ۱۲۵ متر طول و ۳۰۰ متر عرض، اکنون بیشتر به عنوان یک پدیده گردشگری و غواصی شناخته می‌شود. The Blue Hole یک مکان مناسب برای ماجراجویی‌های زیرآبی به حساب می‌آید که گردشگران می‌توانند ساعات بسیار خوبی را در آن سپری کنند. برای آشنایی باجذاب‌ترین مناطق گردشگری بلیز، با کجارو همراه شوید: http://goo.gl/iNO7sb
