A well planned holiday offers the best prospects for a memorable vacation. In order to plan, it is important to first make yourself familiar with your chosen destination and to find out what there is to see and do. It is also a good idea to read about the culture and customs so you know what to expect and how to behave. Depending on what activities you want to exercise on your vacation, it may furthermore be prudent to investigate the climatic conditions, including the different seasons.

Often, one's travel budget is decisive for the choice of destination, travel mode, the category of stay and activities you can pursue. However, there are many variables that can be used as part of planning.

For the more popular destinations, there is often a big difference between the price level in peak season and off-season. Hence, if you have the possibility to plan the trip just a little off-season there may be much money to save not only on accommodation, but also on the flight tickets.

There are many popular destinations on all 7 continents (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and Antarctica), the 5 most visited countries in the world are: France, United States, China, Spain and Italy, followed by Turkey, United Kingdom, Germany, Malaysia and Mexico.

All of these countries have something very unique to attract visitors; France has Paris, its seaside destinations, culture, cuisine and wine. The United States has New York, Florida, California and New England as popular destinations, add to this its great natural beauty. China is relatively new as one of the world's most visited countries and it has a lot to offer the travelers and the tourism infrastructure has been developed rapidly to a high standard. Spain and Italy are old and well known destinations not just because of their Mediterranean lifestyle and culture, but also because there are so many beautiful beaches and plenty of historical sites.

The World's most famous travel attractions are not necessarily the most visited and only some of these are located in the most visited countries. Also it is a matter of opinion what a famous travel attraction is. Among the most visited are Time Square in New York, Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and Trafalgar Square i London. The most famous attraction would probably include Taj Mahal in India, the Great Wall in China, the Great Pyramids in Egypt, the old Inca city Machu Picchu high up in the Andes Mountain in Peru, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia, the channels of Venice and many other attractions.

For some the ideal holiday is to have the time and opportunity to engage in a preferred activity. The best destinations for various activities are not necessarily located in the most popular travel countries. If you want to go skiing in Europe you would probably choose among France, Switzerland and Austria, or alternatively Norway or Sweden. If you want to experience exotic wildlife you might want to go on safari in Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana or South Africa. There are many excellent places in the world for watersports, among the best in Asia are Thailand and Malaysia, but Australia probably has the best beaches in the world. For more romantic seaside destinations many would prefer one of the Caribbean islands, the Maldives, Seychelles or Mauritius.
