Cruising is an increasingly popular choice of holiday for millions of people. Cruising gives holiday makers access to a variety of amazing destinations that would be impossible to visit during a traditional hotel based break. On a cruise you can wake up to a new and exciting destination almost every day while still getting to enjoy all the comforts and facilities of the finest hotels. You will find cruises to take you to almost every corner of the world, but there are a few cruises that are unlike any other.

Sailing along the Nile in Egypt is one such cruise. The Nile is a stunning river which has been the centre of a truly fascinating history and culture. On one of these luxury Egypt holidays you will get to see first hand the heartland of ancient Egypt and marvel at monuments and relics that are thousands of years old. Egypt’s rich history has left behind a wealth of artifacts and ruins that are just waiting to be explored and experienced. With such treasures on offer it is no wonder so many people become enchanted with Egypt.

Egypt is not the only country to offer a rich and rewarding river cruise. China is home to vast panoramic landscapes and an enthralling history which has left many monuments and landmarks. China’s most iconic river cruise is undoubtedly the Three Gorges cruise on the mighty Yangtse which gives tourists an unparalleled Chinese experience. The Three Gorges offer some of the most beautiful landscapes in China and are certain to make for an unforgettable holiday.

The Galapagos Islands are a group of islands unlike any other; it is little wonder they proved to be such a source of inspiration for Charles Darwin. These islands are located 605 miles off the coast of Ecuador, which is itself a truly amazing place. The islands often described as one of the Seven Wonders of the World which you may think is pure hyperbole but once you have seen the Galapagos for yourself you will realise it is completely justified. Great luxury cruises are available to tour these islands and allow you to see the unique flora and fauna which have fascinated and inspired so many people for centuries.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
