As the world’s longest established travel company, Cox & Kings has been making travel predictions longer than most.

Looking at the major events and trends around the world in 2014, Cox & Kings expects destinations such as Indonesia, Morocco and South Africa to be popular choices.


Taj Mahal

With the pound at its strongest rate against the rupee for at least ten years and a wide range of special offers available, holidays to India are going to be exceptionally good value for money in 2014. From converted palaces and forts, to homestays, havelis and tented camps, there is something to suit every taste and budget.


Old Harbour, Essaouira

Just a three hour flight from the UK and no time difference, Morocco tours make an ideal choice for a holiday or short break. Many new riads and luxury hotels have opened over the last couple of years, making prices are more competitive. From the Atlantic coast, through fertile plains to the mountains and valleys of the High Atlas, the country’s diverse landscapes are all accessible within a few hours’ drive from Marrakech.


The Sacred Valley, Cuzco

The Sacred Valley, Cuzco

With the football world descending on Brazil this summer, book a Peru holiday to experience the vibrant Latin American culture. Explore the ancient, scenic and colonial wonders of this diverse country, including Machu Picchu, perhaps the most breath-taking archaeological site in the world.


Khazrat-Imom complex  in Tashkent

At the very heart of ex-Soviet Central Asia, Uzbekistan is one of only two doubly landlocked countries in the world. From towering fortresses in Khiva and Bukhara, and stunning Islamic architecture in Samarkand, the waves of conquerors, nomads and traders throughout Uzbekistan’s history have left behind a fascinating cultural and architectural legacy.


Mount Bromo

Mount Bromo

Recently named the best value long-haul destination by the Post Office, Bali is just one of the many islands of Indonesia. From white sand beaches and rugged coastline to mountainous interiors and lush vegetation, Indonesia is rich in cultural, archaeological and historic attractions with a range of accommodation at prices to suit all budgets.

South Africa

Table Mountain, Cape Town

Table Mountain, Cape Town

With so much cultural and scenic diversity, South Africa offers not just a wealth of spectacular sights, but – with a particularly favourable exchange rate at the moment – a holiday for every budget. Cosmopolitan cities, spectacular coastlines, excellent wildlife and beautiful interiors are just some of this country’s many highlights.
