In broad terms, there are two types of holiday most tourists will embark upon. The relaxing retreat, where chilling out on the beach and lapping up the sun is the order of the day and the more adventurous getaway, where travellers explore the cultural highlights of a particular city and participate in a few active pursuits.
A lot depends on the holidaymaker in question and what they want from their time away. But where should you be heading in search of these distinctive escapes? India and South Africa are equally attractive destinations which promise to provide many types of travellers with everything they could possibly want.
