Thailand

Thailand

Did you know that over 16 million foreigners fly into Thailand each year? Neither did we, but that’s when it became perfectly clear why so many students have chosen Thailand as for their gap year destination. With idyllic beaches and epic parties, bustling cities, rich culture, delicious food, cheap accommodation, and so much to discover, you won’t be disappointed. Join the massive community of back packers who come here from all over the world!

Australia

Australia

Did you know that Australians spend Christmas at the beach? Well, you can join them on your gap year! Australia is the second most popular destination for gap year travels, and with its reputation for incredible beaches, natural beauty, and wonderful wildlife, it’s really a no-brainer as to why Australia is so high on traveller’s lists. Ever see kangaroos hopping along the beach at sunset before? Plan to take your year off in Australia, and you’ll immediately increase your odds of seeing that happen.

South Africa is a gem, and Cape Town is a backpacker’s dream. It has state-of-the-art infrastructure, so getting around is easy.

Peru

Peru

Peru is an exotic place that is rich in culture. It boasts beautiful and diverse landscapes, desert coastlines, and has an incredible history. One of the best parts of visiting Peru is hiking the Inca Trail, which takes you deep into the stunning peaks of the Andes, where you will find yourself at the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, one of the most fascinating historical landmarks in the world. Gap year travelers would be silly to overlook Peru for their destination.
