Leaving Lorenzo behind to puff a path up the west coast of Ireland, Sunway sends Senior Reporter for Travelbiz, Jacinta McGlynn off on a glorious Greek odyssey to the lesser known area of northern Greece. The direct Ryanair flight from Dublin into Thessaloniki was smooth as silk and the group landed in the lovely capital of Macedonia to explore the region of Halkidiki. Thessaloniki is a revelation. A city with a young and vibrant University student population, street life bustles and nightlife bubbles. Sunway’s range of hotels run the full gamut from 3 to 5 star, are located in the heart of the action and perfectly positioned for both leisure and business. Super comfort and legendary Greek hospitality are the order of the day. Vergina Hotel (3*), Capsis Hotel (4*) and Mediterranean Palace (5*) are top notch. I can feel a city break in Thessaloniki coming on!


Sunway’s brilliant Fam trip to Halkidiki in northern Greece was a triumph! The three finger peninsulas (Mt Athos, Sithonia and Kassandra) are covered in olive groves and kissed by electric blue skies and turquoise seas. Direct flights from Dublin with Ryanair into Thessaloniki offer easy access to this lovely, unspoiled area and Sunway offers amazing accommodation options from 2 star gems through 3, 4 and 5 star jewels. Think of the real Greece of traditional tavernas and pretty stone villages – step back, relax and enjoy good old fashioned hospitality. Sunway is the only way to go!
