A surprise New Year’s holiday may be waiting for you in nearby destinations where you can travel without a visa.
Those looking for an easy and short schedule can make a last-minute schedule to Morocco, which they can reach with a four-hour direct flight from Istanbul. We recommend a few days Marrakech program for New Year’s Eve in this exotic North African country, which normally deserves at least a one-week program with its cultural temple cities like Fez and desert adventures like the Sahara. You can try one of the resort hotels. Fairmont Royal Palm Marrakech, Amanjena and Palais Namaskar are waiting for those who want to make an exotic welcome to 2023 with their calm atmospheres accompanying their authentic architecture surrounded by palm trees, rooms with pools and restaurants reflecting all the colors of Morocco.
Zanzibar, one of East Africa’s magnificent archipelagos in the waters of the Indian Ocean, is another exotic destination that offers easy transportation and allows for last-minute programming. You can welcome the new year by diving in the turquoise waters, where you can take a 6-hour direct flight from Istanbul, or by going on sunset tours with the traditional Zanzibar boat dhows. It may be difficult to find accommodation in hotels on the island’s popular north coast; Our recommendation is to try the eastern beaches away from the tourist crowds and the luxury resorts here… Melia Zanzibar, Matemwe Lodge and Tulia Zanzibar, which reflect both the history and nature of Zanzibar, which has been used as a base for the spice trade by the Arabs for centuries, are the ones we have chosen for you…
Warm beaches and cool ocean waters will be waiting for you in the middle of winter in Seychelles, where you can travel with an 8-hour direct flight from Istanbul. In Seychelles, one of the most beautiful tropical islands in the world, you can toast the new year at the New Year’s Eve tables set by the ocean. It can be difficult to find a place in popular hotels on islands with underwater beauties that will delight diving enthusiasts. At this point, our advice is to give a chance to resorts located on private islands, not on the main island. Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island, Six Senses Zil Pasyon and Hilton Seychelles Labriz are some of the addresses that reflect both the nature and cultural life of Seychelles, which consists of more than a thousand islands.
Montenegro, one of the rising stars of the last period in world tourism, is a different destination, two hours away from our country by plane, where you can travel without a visa and where you can easily make a last-minute program… Aman Sveti Stefan and One & Only Portonovi hotels have made great contributions to the development of the region. After these world-famous hotel brands entered the country, new openings followed each other. The Chedi Lustica Bay and Regent Porto Montenegro, which are among the best of them, as well as the renovated Hilton Podgorica Crna Gora and the famous boutique hotel Hotel Conte are among the addresses where you can say hello to the new year in a glorious way.
