Travel website Skyscanner has revealed some of the must-visit locations around the world for 2021.

With restrictions placed on travel due to the pandemic this year, the airline website has recommended eight places that visitors should check out in the coming year (or after).

The flight comparison site has considered Covid measures in its new list, naming places that are pandemic-friendly, such as South Korea, which has fewer restrictions in place.

It also named a remote Australian island as the top spot to visit in the new year.

The Abrolhos Islands, approximately 60 kilometres off the coast of Western Australia, has been labelled an ‘unmissable off-grid escape’.

It’s not surprising to see the archipelago of 122 islands top the list, with its turquoise waters, thriving marine life and white-sand beaches where you can swim, snorkle or dive.

As amazing as all that sounds, at the moment entry to Australia is closed, except for Australian citizens and permanent residents or those with an exemption.

That all may change in 2021 though. If you’re looking for travel inspo a bit closer to home then Skyscanner has you covered.

Skyscanner’s eight travel destinations for 2021

In second place is Japan, which has postponed the Olympics from this year to next.

At the moment in Japan, travel restrictions have been slowly easing over the past few months for long-term visa holders and business travellers from some countries.

The first plans to open the country to tourists, potentially with limited small group tours in April 2021, continue to evolve.

With the games starting in July, Japan should start letting more international arrivals in.

For Brits hoping for some sun and a quick getaway, Greece could be on the cards as Skyscanner states it is ideal for quiet luxury.

Similarly, if you’re looking for luxury island vibes but want to also do your work from it, the Maldives, Mexico or the Caribbean could be the one.

If those destinations sound lush but far too pricey for you then Skyscanner also has a guide to suit all budgets for travel in 2021.

We can’t wait to take to the skies again.
