If you decide to take a holiday with Turquoise, you can be guaranteed an unforgettable trip in a beautiful setting as we run excursions to some of the most picturesque locations on earth.

But don’t just take our word for it.

We have discovered some wonderful images of the destinations we travel to, taken by travel bloggers. Here are some of our favourites that we feel really capture the essence of a place.

New Zealand

New Zealand is a unique country. As diverse in landscape as it is culture, a trip to these islands is a truly unforgettable experience. These photos show a bubbling geyser at Waiotapu, near to Rotorua on the North Island and mesmerizing turquoise blue sea into which the beaches that fringe the island melt.

South Africa

South Africa is country of overwhelming beauty and spectacular contrasts. It is one of the world’s top safari destinations but also boasts landscapes of thriving cities and stunning beaches. This image shows a street of vibrant houses in the Bo Kaap District of Cape Town, one of the country’s most spectacular urban landscapes.

The popularity of Vietnam as a tourist destination is growing year on year. With stunning white sand beaches and the bustling harbours that surround them, tropical jungles and ancient cities, there is something for everyone in this beautiful country. Pictured here is the beach at Nha Trang, an area on the South Central coast that is popular with tourists and which boasts excellent scuba diving opportunities.

Of all Indonesia’s gems, it is Bali which is the chief draw for most travellers. An island filled with exotic flowers, ancient temples, towering volcanoes and welcoming smiles, it is a truly magical destination. This image of the beach in the upmarket area of Seminyak is just one example of the island’s inherent beauty.

The Maldives

The Maldives is made up of a string of tiny, coral islands, ringed by pure white sand and fringed by some of the cleanest, clearest water in the world.

The Niyama Per Aquum resort, pictured here, is just one of the luxurious resorts whose rooms look out over the crystal clear water and provide the ultimate relaxation experience on our holiday.

Australia has it all. From wide open spaces to heaving cities, crystal clear oceans to towering mountains, there is so much to see in this beautiful country and never enough time to see it all in.

Pictured here are highlights including the world famous Sydney Opera House which sits in the shadow of the equally well known Sydney Harbour Bridge; and a stunning shot of Uluru, the majestic sandstone formation that dominates the landscape of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National park in the southwest corner of the Northern Territory.
