Top Destinations for a Remarkable Easter Vacation

There are two things Nigerians love with all their hearts and souls: jollof rice and holidays. While we may never get to fully explain the reason behind their craze for jollof rice, we can tell that today’s hectic life makes the love for holidays all the more enticing.

After all, who wouldn’t want that deserved break after weeks of pouring themselves into work? Now, the Easter break is around the corner, but here is the big question: Are you going to have another boring Easter holiday this year just like most people do? Far from that, I hear you say. But if you are really looking forward to a refreshing Easter vacation bubbling with all the excitement you desire, below are four incredible spots to relish the wonders of Easter this year.

#1. Rome

Rome is like an onion; by peeling off each layer, you come in close contact with a whole new discovery. This city is a layer upon layer of mysteries, ancient ruins and suspense that knows no end. And there are very few places in the world where the past echoes loud and clear. Rome is definitely one of them.

Things to Do in Rome

In Rome, it’s never a question of whether there’s enough to see and do, it’s always about whether you can sufficiently explore the incredible attractions and landmarks that define this city. From history to faith, tales of conquest, blood and adventure, Rome is a city for those with a knack for the unusual. For instance, The Colosseum offers a peep into the architectural dexterity of the ancient romans. If you have ever been thrilled by the blood-soaked spectacle by gladiators in the arena, you may consider exploring the Colosseum where the real action takes centre stage.

From the 27 B.C city of the gods Pantheon to the alluring Vatican City and hordes of several must-see landmarks and sights, Rome is a city with the capacity to seduce every tourist who steps on this Eternal City.

Where to Stay in Rome

For a city that boasts of 22 different districts and with each district housing several neighborhoods, deciding where to stay in Rome can be sometimes cumbersome. But whether you just want to unwind at your own pace or delve into the center of the action, Wakanow can help you plan the ideal Easter vacation in Rome that suits your preferences and budget – ranging from cheap flights to Rome as well as great Rome hotel deals.

As a guide, we suggest a stay in Centro Storico (Historical Centre) which has a labyrinth of well-cobbled alleyways with regal town halls, elegant churches, palatial buildings that evoke the aura of Renaissance, etc. Or consider booking your Rome hotel in Trident where shoppers converge for stylish mementoes and designers’ accessories.

#2. Nairobi

We can never fully emphasize the allure of this city, and so, you may need to visit Nairobi yourself to grab a peek into why Kenya remains one of the top most visited destinations in Africa. This beautiful city is arguably Kenya’s most culturally vibrant city, simmering with incredible attractions that draw millions of tourists every year.  From blue, sandy beaches to safaris and historical treasures, Nairobi wields a certain charm that no city in the entire East African bloc can boast of.

Things to Do in Nairobi

For lovers of wildlife, the Nairobi National Park is a treasure-chest of everything nature. Not only is it the only world’s game reserve located within a major city, it represents the richness and diversity of Africa’s conservation. But safaris are not all there is in Nairobi. If you have ever contemplated what it feels like to eat a crocodile or zebra, a quick dash into Carnivore on Lang’ata Road is always an expedition worth the candle, every time.

How about watching a float of crocodiles take spaces as they sunbath and dine at the Mamba Village? Consider feeding a baby elephant in the Elephant Orphanage or just head over to the Thika Road Mall for a tantalizing 7D cinema experience!

Where to Stay in Nairobi

Nairobi is a beautiful city with something unique for everyone – from value-for-money travelers to lovers of style and luxury. For a start, consider exploring great Nairobi hotel deals by Wakanow for an Easter vacation to remember. A Nairobi vacation package comes complete with exciting attractions that enable you dig into the treasures of this amazing city.

#3. Dubai

Things to Do in Dubai

For a destination that points the world to the future of cities, the sheer scale of things to do in glitzy Dubai is largely overwhelming, to say the least. From the imposing magnificence of Jumeirah to the iconic, 829.8-feet Burj Khalifa, nothing compares to the colorful veneer of this city.

From cheap Dubai flights to highly affordable hotel deals that won’t dig a hole in your pocket, Dubai is the ideal place for an ideal Easter vacation.

Where to Stay in Dubai

If you are not ready to cough out bigger bucks for a stay in Dubai, consider the robust selection of cheap hotel deals by Wakanow. But generally, Bur Dubai and Deira offer budget-friendly accommodation options to tourists who are not willing to break the banks. But if you are cautious of style and comfort, you may consider staying in Downtown Dubai, home to some of the most imposing landmarks in the Emirati skylines.  From here it is easier to access the Dubai Fountain, Burj Khalifa and the almighty Dubai Mall.

Seductive, inviting and warm, this city brims with incredible ancient treasures that complement the rich history of the people. It boasts of stunning coastlines with the surrounding settlements forming incredible backdrops. Part of its global fame can be traced to its huge tourism potentials that attract thousands of people to this city annually.

Things to Do in Calabar

Calabar is a city brimming with hordes of attractions – from historical treasures to nature and a beautiful assortment of social thrills and annual festivals. A quick dash into Creek Town via boat will usher you into the must-see home of Mary Slessor, the Scottish missionary who stopped the killing of twins in Nigeria. Or you could consider slicing through the Kwa Falls and watch the water cascade freely into the Cross River estuary. As a famous slave port, you will particularly relish the agonizing story of slave trade in Africa with a visit to the Slave Museum. From Tinapa Resort to the Afi Mountain Ranch and the Municipal Park, Calabar will surely dazzle you as one of Nigeria’s top destinations for your Easter vacation.
