Traveling is a great way to expand ones horizons. It introduces one to new cultures and ideas, expands ones understanding of the world, and can be extremely fun to boot.
Before I share with you’re the best destinations to explore the world, remember these tips;
- When traveling internationally on a budget, consider taking flights rather than trains to your destinations. While trains are perhaps the more traditional mode of transportation for backpackers, many airlines offer discount flights that are much cheaper than train tickets. This way, you can travel to more places without adding to your budget.
- When vacationing in a foreign country, be careful what you eat. If you suffer from severe food allergies, make sure you are able to speak those food related terms in the native language of your travel destination. This helps ensure that the wait staff is clearly informed of your allergies in case of an emergency.
- It is important to do research before you pick your destination and it is incredibly important to shop around.
Okay, where to go? Here goes my list:
#1. Marrakech, Morocco
A magical place, brimming with markets, gardens, palaces, and mosques.
What it can offer? It has the best blend of history and modern adventure, with various tour options for your last day, to cater to travelers of all interest types.
#2. Siem Reap, Cambodia
Fond of ancient structures? Familiar with the temples and ruins of Angkor Wat?
I love the moment experiencing the sunrise at Siem Reap. Simply a wonderful place to visit. I’ll definitely missed the action-packed adventure I had.
#3. Istanbul, Turkey
Europe and Asia meet in Istanbul. Yes, you read it correctly.
Istanbul is a place where the breathtaking ancient architecture coexists with modern restaurants and nightlife.
#4. Hanoi, Vietnam
What mesmerizes me at Hanoi? This charming place preserved the Old Quarter, monuments and colonial architecture, while making room for modern developments alongside.
Best part? You can explore the 600 temples and pagodas of this City by taxi. Woo-hoo!
#5. Prague, Czech Republic
Ahhh… The bohemian allure and fairytale features of Prague. This is a perfect destination for beach-weary vacationers who want to immerse themselves in culture.
I recommend spend time wandering the Old Town Square before heading over to gape at The Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock.
And guess what? The historic pubs set the scene for a night of traditional tippling.
#6. London, United Kingdom
The crown jewels, Buckingham Palace, Camden Market… need I say more? There’s a lot to explore, I may run out of words enumerating and describing them each. Haha!
Love fashion? Oxford Street has shopping galore.
Culture aficionados? Then don’t miss the Tate Modern and the Royal Opera House.
Food junnkie? Try the cream tea at Harrod’s or crispy fish from a proper chippy offers classic London flavor.
Music and book buff? Go check out the Abbey Road and the Sherlock Holmes Museum at 221B Baker Street.
Like I said, the list is endless.
Traveling is one of the greatest experiences one can have in life. The ability to meet new people, explore new places, and learn about new cultures is unprecedented.
So, TRAVEL. <3
You’ll never regret it.
