While borders in various countries are still closed, it's never too early to plan your next holiday.
Especially when there are some good deals to grab.
Banyan Tree Group recently launched its second edition of Ultimate Getaways promotion.
This promotion features three-day-two-night travel choices to 30 destinations, including Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia, with savings of up to 80 per cent.
Some of the properties to enjoy include villas with bathtubs and private pools, or access to a private beach.
