If you're desperate to jet off somewhere exotic next year but can't decide between a host of exciting destinations then maybe some tips from a top travel writer will help you make up your mind.
Writing for the Metro, Tom Hall, travel editor for Lonely Planet, has suggested heading off to Madagascar for a truly different break and I think he could be on to something.
Especially if you're a nature lover, with so many unique species on the islands you can't fail to be tempted.
Imagine how exciting it would be to catch a glimpse of a ring-tailed lemur jumping through the treetops - or to come face-to-face with a chameleon sitting patiently on a branch.
I know I'd have my camera out to try and get some snapshots of these amazing creatures.
And if you're looking for a bit more adventure, why not head off on the trail of some real-life pirates?
If you're brave enough to dive beneath the waters around Nosy Ve, you may just come across some treasure left by the Malagasy pirates who used to sail in these seas and used the small island as a base.
But I think the coral reefs just offshore are treasure enough to take the plunge!
