4. Indonesia ➡️ Malta 

The popeye village in Malta.

Obviously, Malta may not live up to the infamous Bali standards but it is a great covid alternative nevertheless. Not only are there cute wooden houses along the sea called the popeye village as can be seen in this picture, but it's also full of historic sites such as fortresses and temples to give you and your possible travel mates a little history lesson. You can even find burial chambers dating back to 4000 B.C! Now, you probably won't find any rice terraces here but the blue lagoon definitely makes up for it! Travel there and you will see it for yourself. 😉


3. Thailand ➡️ Spain

Thailand is currently under strict lockdown due to a bad wave they are going through currently, but Spain is here to the rescue! Similar to Thailand, Spain has much to offer. You can have a city trip, a beach trip or even a nature trip. From the islands of Mallorca to the beautiful capital city of Madrid, just make your pick and don't think too much. Thai cuisine is also quite amazing, but have you tried the Paellas and tapas? Probably one of the best, or maybe I'm just biased. Here's how you can start planning your 2021 travels to Spain if you don't know where to start.

2. South Africa ➡️ Norway 

Norway is a covid alternative travel destination with fishing boats in the sea and wooden red houses.

Norway is currently in the safe zone making it the perfect covid alternative for South Africa, with high cliffs and landscapes to die for. We also have to admit, Norway is probably the most beautiful country in comparison to the rest of the Scandinavian countries. Sweden and Denmark simply do not compare. Norway may not be as warm as South Africa, but it definitely is as beautiful if not more.
