Summer’s here and that can mean only one thing: it’s holiday time!

Our LAST-MINUTE SUMMER HOLIDAYS special is bursting with ideas on where you can chill out this season.

Travel with us to dramatic SOUTH AFRICA, where you journey from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park and, finally, to the Drakensberg Range. Or head to much-loved BANGKOK in THAILAND, which has something for families, couples, gangs of girls and bands of boys. We also have a whole bunch of fun ideas to help you beat the heat right here in India.

And we’ve thrown in a bonus story for you – the ‘OTHER’ TRANS-SIBERIAN RAILWAY shows you a different side of the iconic train route.

Check out our menu of short breaks in the country… ATHOOR in TAMIL NADU is a lesser-known birding destination. At BHOGWE BEACH in MAHARASHTRA, you can have the sand, the sun and the sea all to yourself. If it’s a wildlife break you’d prefer, escape to KANHA NATIONAL PARK, MADHYA PRADESH, the forest that inspired The Jungle Book. Camp with elephants in luxury tents in JAIPUR, RAJASTHAN. Or go organic at a farm stay in DARJEELING, WEST BENGAL.

PLUS: Eating in Brussels, Belgium; Shopping in Goa, Germany; Activities in Bali, Indonesia
