People have, for a long time, flown around Europe to chase Eurovision. There’s something exciting about visiting another country when there’s a special event going on. More and more people are choosing to go abroad for the festivals and parties that are hosted by other countries. Fortunately, foreign festivals don’t require camping in the mud – a luxury holiday to a festival destination is a much more comfortable experience. Here are five of the world’s best festivals, all with luxury hotels nearby:
This Brazilian carnival is one of the world’s biggest and most famous. It’s an explosion of sound and colour, taking place in February or March, with parades and performances.
This spectacular festival takes place in February each year. Thousands of people write their wishes and dreams on fire lanterns, before releasing them into the sky. It’s a beautiful sight, and families with children might have seen something similar in the Disney movie ‘Tangled’.
In Texas, this sand festival draws visitors from all over the world. View the intricately detailed sand sculptures created by some of the world’s most talented sculptors, and enjoy the live entertainment and the food and drink on offer.
The people of Peru celebrate Inti, the Incan sun god, in the last week of June. First and business class flights to Lima will take you to this festival, where there are street fairs and live music performances.
If you’re in New York for Thanksgiving, then you won’t want to miss the Macy’s parade. It’s a world-famous event, with parade floats and live entertainment. Giant balloons are in the shapes of favourite film and TV characters including Snoopy, Pikachu and a range of Disney favourites.
