    Anyone Traveling or heading on Holiday?

    Might be good if guys posted places they visited and explain the good, the bad, and the ugly of the various destinations.

    I'm off to Protaras in Cyprus at the end of July anyone been and if so what’s to see and what’s to stay clear of:50:

    Just back from Hammammet Tunisia last week, was an awesome holiday, stayed at Sentido Phenicia, recommend it to anyone, Tunisia itself from the areas i've seen is still very much a developing country.

    Heading to Sunny Beach Bulgaria in August with the lads for a wild week, prob won't remember much of it so my judgement on the place may not be accurate

    Im too poor to go on holiday. Going to Belfast next month to see a friend. Hate Belfast more than Glasgow so not much of a holiday.

    Im off to Port El Kantaoui in September. Did you go on a Sahara trip? Anywhere else worth visiting or did you stick to the resort?

    In Ibiza at the moment. It's a nice place but don't come here outside of Summer. If you're going to come here in the months of June July and August. It's like a ghost town outside of that.

    I didn't go on the sahara trip but a couple we met went on it and they said it was excellent, it is about 150 dinar each i think, pay extra for other things such as camel riding etc.

    We went into yasmine hammammet for a day which is quite nice, built for tourists really and has its on port, no sure how close it is to Port El Kantaoui though.

    We also went on the African dream excursion, was about 75 dinar each, wouldnt say it was worth the money but was decent, the zoo can be walked around in a couple of hours seeing animals in there natural surroundings, got some cracking photos and a cheap camel ride of it. Then you get a 4 course meal with unlimited wine and soft drinks whilst being entertained (supposedly) by african and tunisian dancers.

    But most of the holiday was spent at the resort.

    Off to Croatia in 2 weeks for the SunceBeat festival (http://www.suncebeat.com/). It'll be the fourth time I've been to Croatia and can't recommend it highly enough regardless of whether you're looking for a chilled out holiday with the family or a clubbing experience with mates. It’s relatively cheap, guaranteed quality weather, class women, good food and stunning beaches / islands to explore. It's 35 degrees+ just now which is way too hot for me so hoping it cools down a bit by the time we arrive, can't see it though. Either way, it can't come quick enough!

    Just back from Gumbet Turkey near 2 weeks and i am sick of Scotland already. I wouldn't go back to Turkey though. Locals are too in your face to get you into restaurants and stuff.

    Thinking of booking all inclusive for Greece next year. 2 weeks stay. We were just Bed and Breakfast in Gumbet so it won't be like we have to go looking for places to eat.

    Greece ain't as bad as Turkey though.
