Head into the New Year with Vacations & Travel!

The Summer 2009 issue of Vacations & Travel is out now, with 204 pages of intriguing stories, travel news and stunning photography, plus a bonus 68-page supplement on New Zealand and a 36-page lift-out on Mauritius. There is also a 20-page booklet on Scandinavia attached to the front cover. In short, an amazing 328 pages of the best in travel, still for just $9.95.

The main magazine is packed with fascinating features and all the global news on hotels, airlines, shopping, dining, golf, cruising and more. With the usual Vacations & Travel mix of adventure and relaxation in exotic places, we head off to destinations such as the Cook Islands, the Philippines, Alaska, Peru and Thailand. We follow nature trails along the coast of the Eastern Cape region of South Africa and cruise down the Yangtze River through the heart of China.

Our special focus is on the delights of Europe, from the newly buzzing restaurant scene in Paris to the byways and great country food of Abruzzo in Italy. We check out what’s happening in Copenhagen and Bucharest, follow the watch trail through Switzerland, and meander down the coast of Croatia, one of Europe’s hottest holiday destinations.

In our bonus New Zealand supplement, we explore what’s hip and happening in Auckland and Wellington, take in the wine route and tantalise the tastebuds with a round-up of the Queenstown dining scene. We also head into the wonderful Southern Alps for the best of scenery, adventure and luxury lodges.

Our lift-out on Mauritius highlights why more and more Australians are visiting this Indian Ocean destination, with its outstanding array of resorts, golf courses, spas and beaches.

In this issue, a lucky subscriber to Vacations & Travel will win a wonderful five-night vacation in Macau courtesy of Viva Macau and Mandarin Oriental Macau.
