Have you had enough of burnt turkey and the EastEnders Christmas special? Do you expect your Christmas this year to be a repeat of every year for the past decade – too much alcohol, too many mince pies, too much television and definitely too much time in too close proximity with your family?

While some people enjoy the festivities and the present-giving, a record 2.5 million Brits are expected to travel abroad for the holiday season this year, according to the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA).

Of these, many are travelling to spend the Christmas holidays 2013 with friends and family. But for others, sun and sea continue to be the biggest attractions for holiday-goers desperate to escape the slow and inevitable creep of winter.

Every year at this time, people return to the beautiful Maldivian islands in the Indian Ocean and this year is no exception. Luxury holiday operator Hayes and Jarvis is offering Christmas-escapees the opportunity to spend seven nights at the Meedhupparu Island Resort. The resort is all about relaxation, and features a spa as well as an impressive pool and a beautiful beach where you can enjoy the white sand, warm waters and in the evening, spectacular sunsets. Holidaymakers will able have their taste buds tempted with an astonishing range of cuisines, including Maldivian, Western, Eastern and fusion dishes.

If you don’t want to travel so far, another option is the southern coastal resort town of Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt. Especially popular with families and divers who take full advantage of the fantastic watersports, Sharm offers holiday-goers exceptionally good value for money.

Hayes and Jarvis are offering a Christmas seven night package, leaving London Gatwick on December 20th and staying at the five-star Jaz Mirabel Club. Combining natural beauty with Mediterranean style, the Club is part of the Mirabel Resort Complex, giving guests access to additional bars, restaurants and a spa/health club. Choose between spending a lazy day at one of the resort’s pools, relaxing on the beach or taking to the sea to explore the coral reefs and shipwrecks which provide fantastic snorkelling opportunities.

If you’ve always wanted to see Mexico, then the package that Hayes and Jarvis have put together for a 14-night stay at the Catalonia Riviera Maya might prove irresistible. Fly into Cancun and enjoy a private beach of white sand, inviting pools and colourful gardens, then saunter back to your Mexican-style room in a thatched building. Golfers and sailors will find plenty to keep themselves occupied with a marina and golf course nearby.

As a Catholic country, Mexicans will be celebrating the festive season, so if you wanted to you could pop along to the local church for Christmas Day and then head back to the beach to toast the holiday with a large, frosted Margarita. It’s also the perfect opportunity to indulge your love of Mexican food with non-stop tacos, burritos and enchiladas spicing things up at just one of the many restaurants located at the Riviera Maya resort.

The beaches around the Gulf of Mexico are among the most exotic anywhere in the world and it is largely for this simple reason that such an expansive local tourist industry has blossomed in recent decades. The allure of turquoise seas, power-white sands and near constant sunshine has kept families who can afford it heading back time and again to the region. All of which has led to the construction of some quite spectacular and all inclusive holiday resorts along the more desirable stretches of land.The good news for us all is that there are actually plenty of package deals on Mexico all inclusive holidays available at very reasonable prices these days, so the cost levels need no longer be a hindrance if you’ve been longing to visit but were worried you might not be able to afford it. And going all inclusive is really the only way to do it in Mexico. You can book excursions to destinations away from your hotel or apartment complex of course but generally visitors are more than happy and certainly well catered for within the relative confines of their particular resort.

So from golf courses, to ice-teas, water sports and wandering between palm tress, you can indulge yourself in all manner of tremendously enjoyable pastimes in Mexico. Prices on holidays that involve trans-Atlantic travel are of course generally higher for UK consumers than those that do not but the cost of an all inclusive trip to Mexico could well surprise you and genuinely pique your interest.

But if you donít feel like a holiday in Mexico is right for you and your travelling party this time around then there are always cheap Greece holidays offering excellent value available online from the likes of the leading UK tour operator Thomas Cook.

If you are looking to simply get out and live in a new environment, then you most likely have thought about finding a country that you can enjoy and not have to spend a fortune. Trying to find the best cheap countries to live in for a year might seem like a difficult task but there are a few places that you truly need to consider. Going on a new adventure might be very scary at first, but it is all about learning more about the current economy in that particular country and making sure that you have some enjoyable things to do. Here are three of the most affordable countries out there that you can consider moving to for at least a year.

Affordable Extended Stays in Australia

This is by far one of the most overlooked countries in the world in terms of affordable, extended stays. Australia is a beautiful country† One-year housing is amazingly cheap in Australia – perhaps not in Sydney, but in the suburbs of Melbourne. (If you want house and land packages, Mernda is the place to go, and not so far away there are plenty of houses for sale in craigieburn.) It is, on the whole, a very relaxing country in a beautiful country that has a nightlife you will never get sick of.

Affordable Extended Stays in Philippines

In South East Asia, there is no other country that is rising as fast as the Philippines. Living in a condominium located near a very nice area is very affordable and you will be in a very safe place. Most people tend to be scared of the Philippines but this is certainly not a problem. It is a safe and very accommodating country that will surprise you as the days go by. People from all over the world are now moving to the Philippines to find a good paying job that will lead to more opportunities. Once you are able to take a few days off, you should really consider going to the white sand beaches for a relaxing time.

Affordable Extended Stays in Mexico

Mexico is a country that has drawn a lot of people from North America to simply go south and† enjoy the budding economy. The nice thing about Mexico is that it is very close to America and so it happens to be a go-to destination for companies that want to one day expand to bigger countries like the United States and Canada. One of the nicest things about Mexico is that you are just a few hours away from great cities like San Diego and Los Angeles.

These are only a few of the countries that you should consider when looking to move and these are the ones that need your attention. However, either of these countries is a great choice and you will not regret moving there. Though all three are among the most affordable and enjoyable, Australia will be the country that easily stands out as the country of choice. If you are looking for the best country to move to for a year, then Australia is your place to go to.
