    Beautiful beaches, mountainous landscapes, mystical natural phenomena, Thailand also boasts the status of being one of the cheapest long-haul destinations. Many of the best hotel deals are to be found in February, as well as the cheapest flights.

    With its bottomless treasure chest of forests, lakes, and glens, Sweden is a magnet for nature-lovers. April sees the fraying of the Scandinavian winter and the arrival of a gorgeous spring where temperatures become far more bearable. More bearable still are the great prices on flights.
