Where To Go With Audley Travel in 2019

Have you made your 2019 travel plans yet? Wherever you go, Audley Travel is an extraordinary option. The Boston-based travel company specializes in bespoke itineraries around the globe, offering unique experiences and hidden gems that take discerning travelers off the beaten path. In other words, a trip with Audley is guaranteed to be unforgettable! Here are Audley’s top picks of places to discover in 2019.

Cambodia Goes Hollywood

With new ways to see the country and new luxury accommodations to retire to when the adventures are over, Cambodia is a perfect destination for 2019. Audley Travel recommends spending the day touring Angkor Wat through the eyes of a filmmaker. You'll see famous spots used in the movie Tomb Raider, Transformers 3, In the Mood for Love, and Two Brothers. The film locations are brought to life through the stories of locals who worked on the actual movie sets.

Colombia’s Gorgeous Pacific Coast

With Colombia continuing to quickly open up to the outside world there are many unspoiled corners of this country ripe for exploration. The most pristine places are on the Pacific coast. The tiny villages of Bahia Solano and Nuqui are gateways to lodges on either side of Utria National Park. There, travelers can hike through rainforests, trek to a waterfall for a refreshing dip, explore lush mangroves, and catch sight of migrating whales.

A More Stylish, Accessible Bhutan

A five-star experience in the mysterious and remote country of Bhutan just became much more accessible. The ultra-luxurious Six Senses properties have just opened three hotels in the country and two more will join the collection in early 2019. While in Bhutan experiences range from engaging in blessing ceremonies at one of the countries many temples, learning about and participating in traditional farming techniques, and white-water rafting for the more adventurous travelers.

Australia’s Wild West

A much-overlooked region, Australia’s west is a region of secluded beaches, cattle stations and Crocodile Dundee. The recent reduction of the region’s one-way rental car fees is an incredible way to see more for less money. With only one international airport on the west coast, a round trip itinerary used to mean paying a high one way drop off fee or turning your itinerary into a round trip affair. Now for a minimal additional cost you can swim with whale sharks and go trekking in Kalbarri National Park.

Time Traveling in England and France

Go back to the Renaissance this year. May 2, 2019 Marks half a millennium since Da Vinci’s death in Amboise, France. The Loire Valley is having a huge celebration in honor of 500 years since the Renaissance. More than 700 events will be held across the Loire during the summer. Meanwhile, England’s Royal Collection has over 500 drawings by Da Vinci, 144 of which will be on display in 12 different exhibitions across the UK (simultaneously) in February. Sites include the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow, the Ulster Museum in Belfast and the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.

  • Stay tuned for Audley Travel’s Grand Da Vinci Tour of Europe. It will guide travelers through the key works and sites of Da Vinci’s life to bring the spirit of the Renaissance to life.

Excitement in Zimbabwe

There is an exciting atmosphere of new beginnings that is tangible in Zimbabwe both politically and economically. As a result, local businesses are taking off. Safari operators like African Bush Camps are investing in updates and lodges in preparation for an increase in visitors. So, visiting the country in 2019 means you’ll get off the beaten path perks. Largely unknown, you will find yourself in everything from tented camps with bucket showers to world class 5-star accommodations.
