Today, we’ve put together a collection of enticing getaways based on the Post Office’s best-value destinations for 2017. While Portugal’s pousadas and Spain’s paradors have consistently impressed, offering stays in historic palaces and castles for incredibly reasonable rates, there are a few surprises.
The restaurant culture in Japan, for instance, means your trip to its neon cities and temple wonders might cost less than you think. And, with Canada making its national parks free for 2017, spectacular road trips will see you sweep past glaciers, sparkling lakes and snow-capped peaks.
Lastly, we’ve got a superb offer on a luxury cruise along the mighty Mekong River. Enjoy free flights – a saving of up to £2,000 per couple – as you link floating markets and golden palaces.
