Top summer-loving destinations

Cape Town - Did you know that twitter can be an amazing travel resource?

If not, then best you familiarise yourself with #TTOT, which stands for Travel Talk on Twitter.

Each Tuesday at 11:30 (GMT) the twitter verse comes together to talk about one of the best subjects on the planet. You'll come away knowing more about the world we live in and chances are it may just spark your next holiday adventure. 

This week's subject was Summer Tourist Attractions, looking at favourite destinations, best things to see and taste, as well has how to beat the crowds.

Top destination recommendations, included Botswana's Chobe, Zanzibar, Cape Town, Thailand, Lake Malawi, London, Montenegro and Cologne amongst others - take a look below.

We also especially enjoyed Question 5What's the one drink you'd want to consume while touristing during the summer? The answers were unanimous - getting in on some of the local tipple not only keeps you cool but also reveals so much about the destination itself - here are a few of our favourites.
