Indonesian pond becomes the latest Insta-famous selfie spot for tourists
An Indonesian pond, where villagers used to wash their laundry, is now a bonafide tourist destination known as the 'Instagram Pond'.

Tourists flock to the Umbul Ponggok in Central Java and pay an admission fee, rent underwater cameras and take pictures lounging on couches or racing on motorbikes — all while submerged in the pond's pristine waters.

Go loco for St Lucia at an all-inclusive resort and spa

CocoLand, St Lucia's largest water park

If you're looking to get some sun, there's nowhere better than tropical St Lucia. There, the stunning 250-room Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa spans 85 acres of lush grounds, fringed on all sides with coconut palms. Even better than this island paradise is the fact that it is very private, as it sits along the exotic Savannes Bay on St Lucia's largely undiscovered south coast. 

With a variety of recreational sports for land and water babies, you'll never be bored, while families can make the most of the two wings, one for adults and one for children. Children can live out their own island paradise in the water park. You can save €1,250pp, as well as receive additional resort credit, by booking now with Tropical Sky.

If you love nature, Christmas markets and all things warm and cosy, look no further: Crystal Ski is offering a range of breaks to resorts across Andorra, France, Austria and Italy, where you can take your pick of many resorts.
