I assume you have seen our comparison of the Canon IXUS 220 vs S95. Both cameras are good, from the sounds of it the 220 sounds like a good option for you. 
I hope you get the sunny weather you are hoping for.

snapsort,
plz advise on Canon Ixus 220 vs S95, I know that all specs say that s95 is better with its sensor size, but it cost almost 2ce more then 220. If I need a camera for vacation shooting in sunny weather mostly, do I nee to pay more for good camera like s95 or 220 is right chose for me? I take shots only in auto mode as not a prof at this at all. Thank you
PS Sure I would like to have good pictures with new camera

The pictures are correct. Canon Ixus 220 HS is the Canon Powershot Elph 300 HS.
