Where do you want to holiday in 2009?

With the new year approaching and the thoughts of many Britons no doubt turning towards holiday destinations, one firm has put together a helpful list which could assist people in choosing their next place to visit.

British Airways suggests Cape Town and Johannesburg as its top two, the latter due to the forthcoming British Lions tour and the former perhaps because of Table Mountain, good wine and a chance to see one of the best places in the world for Great White sharks.

Dubai comes third on the list, having wowed people all over the world with its development during 2008 – a number of new hotels have sprung up and more are planned for next year.

Meanwhile, San Francisco and New York make up the top five, remaining popular with Brits despite the weakening of the pound against the dollar.

Hong Kong and St Kitts also earn a mention, while St Lucia – where Kelly Brook is currently holidaying – comes eighth.

Sydney and Shanghai complete the list.

British Airways spokesperson Richard Tams said that the credit crunch is not stopping people with a real desire to travel.

“It’s not all doom and gloom for travel in the current economic climate … savvy flyers know there are still bargains to be had,” he remarked.
