New tour operator today gave their top tips for the world’s best day trips at the TNT Sun & Snow Travel Show.

Among the globe’s best day-long excursions were the secret Thai island of Koh Lipe and the Italian coast of Cinque Terre.

The company, which has just launched, specialises in helping travellers see the best of a holiday destination within just a day.’s Charlie O’Connell said of Koh Lipe: “This is the genuine article. Koh Lipe, 35 miles from the Thai coast, was first settled by sea gypsies. It’s a great place to enjoy barbecued lobster on the beach by night, and you can walk from one side of the island to the other in just 15 minutes.”

He added that it was the perfect escape for anyone looking beyond the regular hotspots of Koh Samui and Koh Pahngan.

Steve McPhilemy, also of, said he recommended the village of Vernazza in Cinque Terra for romance.

Other top day tours included Quebec City in Canada, Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, and the Cliffs of Moher near Dublin, Ireland.

O’Connell said: “The Cliffs of Moher and their lunar landscape make them the most spectacular cliffs in Europe.”
