Next Episode of Holidays Unpacked is
Brits spend about a grand each on a week's holiday in the summer sun. Most of us head to the Med, but could we all be having more fun for the same money? In this new series, Morland Sanders and Lucy Hedges road test up-and-coming travel destinations to discover the holidays you could have this summer. From zip-lining in Costa Rica to swimming with wild dolphins in the Azores, climbing ancient pyramids in Mexico or discovering Cambodia's tropical beaches, Holidays Unpacked takes viewers to on-trend destinations, on everyday budgets.
In this first episode, Lucy visits Israel to discover the desert and float in the Dead Sea, while Morland heads to Costa Rica to explore pristine Pacific beaches and zip-line through the cloud forest.
Lucy visits Morocco to take in the vibrant souks of Marrakesh before relaxing among spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains. She discovers fantastic food and bargains galore, all within three hours flight time from the UK. Morland heads to the stunning beaches along Mexico's coastline. Starting at the white sands of Tulum, he explores Mayan temples, swims in crystal-clear waters and visits vast flocks of flamingos at a pristine wildlife reserve - pretty good for a grand.
Lucy enjoys a dose of the year-round sunshine in the Cape Verde islands, where she tries out windsurfing in the Atlantic breeze and dancing the nights away to funaná, a unique local blend of African and Caribbean beats. Meanwhile, Morland plunges into the adventurous side of 'Europe's answer to Hawaii' - the Azores - as he swims with wild dolphins, relaxes in hot springs and leaps from waterfalls.
Lucy Hedges and Morland Sanders road test up-and-coming travel destinations to discover the holidays you could have this summer on a budget of around £1000. Lucy visits Cambodia, the up-and-coming destination of the Far East. From the hustle, bustle and delicious street food of capital city Phnom Penh, to the tranquillity of ancient Buddhist temples and tropical paradise islands, she discovers an extraordinary adventure on an everyday budget. Meanwhile, in Iceland, Morland Sanders visits the dramatic backdrops to some of Hollywood's biggest movies, from gushing geysers to spectacular waterfalls.
