New from Goway Travel: Escape with 10-day specials to Mauritius and the Maldives.

More than just two of the most romantic destinations on Earth, they are two of the most authentic as well.

Against stiff competition from the Caribbean and South Pacific, the islands of the Indian Ocean are offering all the luxuries, beauty and culture of their more famous counterparts – plus some unique surprises. Mauritius and the Maldives have cultures utterly unique among the world’s island nations. More than just two of the most romantic destinations on Earth, they are two of the most authentic as well.

Arab, Portuguese, Dutch, French and British influences have all played a part in Mauritius’ colorful history. This shows in every aspect of the island’s culture, particularly its cuisine. Between delicious meals, enjoy countless opportunities for fishing, kayaking, hiking across beautiful unspoiled mountain terrain, or meeting the vast variety of local wildlife (Go easy on the Dodo jokes. Mauritians are proud of their extinct national mascot). The snorkeling and scuba-diving along the reef also ranks among the best in the world.

The Maldives inspire images of luxury bungalows stretched over sparkling blue waters, with miles of flawless white beach just a short walk away. And this can certainly match reality. Being made up of nearly 1,200 coral islands, the Maldives are also an exceptional spot for diving or snorkeling holiday. Share the waters with manta rays, sharks, over 200 varieties of coral and over 1,000 species of fish before relaxing to watch the sunset.

Right now, Goway Travel is thrilled to offer exceptional value on 10-day escapes to these two unforgettable destinations, including international return flights with Emirates, all taxes, seven nights accommodation with daily breakfast and resort transfers.
