Each episode of The Chris Robinson Travel Show focuses on a different destination and is about 40 mins long. Chris and his guests share expert advice and information to help you plan your vacations – or simply enjoy some armchair travel to places as diverse as Ireland and the Islands of the Caribbean.
This week on the Travel Show - the up and coming destination of Roatan. Roatan is the largest of the Bay Islands, 56 kms off the northern coast of Honduras in the warm waters of the Caribbean. It combines laid-back, toes-in-the-sand beach-bumming with spectacular scuba diving. Roatan has long been known to divers as one of the top dive destinations in the Caribbean but is now being discovered by non-diver vacationers looking for somewhere a little different, a little off the beaten track, yet with all the convenience of direct flights and all-inclusive resorts. Air Transat offer year-round non-stop flights and feature a range of accommodations offering kick-back-and-relax all-inclusives, dive packages, beach and water sports, and many restaurant choices.
This week the Travel Show showcases Wales – perhaps the greatest secret wonder of Britain, and a gem that should not be overlooked. It’s a land of scenic beauty, heritage and history and the people are warm and welcoming. This year is the “Year of the Sea” in Wales. This is very appropriate for a country with such spectacular coastline and the first country to have a pathway along the entirety of its shores. Celebrate dramatic seascapes and active inland waterways. Discover coastal castles with living history and seaside communities with wonderful seafood. Plus, there are 1,400 kms of coastal path to explore!
Best Western Hotels
This week on the Travel Show we explore the world of Best Western. It is the largest hotel family in the world with over 4,200 hotels in more than 100 countries - and it has one of the most rewarding hotel loyalty programs anywhere! The hallmark of Best Western is the consistently high standards across all the properties. Out of 4,200 Best Western hotels worldwide a total of 1,956 received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2017. In North America it increases to an impressive 64% of properties who bear that distinction. And over 1,600 of Best Western hotels are pet friendly – so four-legged family members can also enjoy the great service!

The Czech Republic

The Czech Republic celebrates the 100th anniversary of the creation of Czechoslovakia this year. Events will include a celebration of the Czech culture such as the “Beer of Kings” from Budweis, the development of spa treatments as part of Nordic skiing experience and the famous Prague cafés where great men like Albert Einstein and Franz Kafka discussed their ideas.
