There are so many stunningly beautiful places all around the globe that you should visit. It doesn’t matter if you prefer big, crowded cities, remote wilderness or you just want to learn about other country’s history or culture, there are always places to go. If you are planning your next vacation, keep reading this text and maybe discover some country or city you haven’t thought of.
We are going to mention only six countries that offer unique experiences to tourists, but if you want to learn about others, read more here.
Cuba is a great place to start if you want to travel back in time. No, you will not find popular chain corporations here such as Starbucks and McDonalds, and that is what makes Cuba magical. Some would say that the country is frozen in time. Due to Castro’s ban of American products, you will not encounter locals spending the whole day glued to their smartphones. Instead, they will happily greet you and offer you a tour. Cubans take great pride in classic cars that are exhibited on the street as if in a museum. You can experience breath-taking beaches or go on a tour to Viñales, visit tobacco farms and learn how to roll a cigar.
Rio de Janeiro
We believe that Rio de Janeiro is another city you should add to your checklist. It is called “city of contrast” and it’s due to its charming nature and urban life. This city is a great place for young people who want to relax during the day, and also experience one-of-a-kind nightlife. The first thing that probably comes to your mind is the Carnival. It takes place in February and during those few days, thousands of people go out on the street to enjoy the parades, dance samba, drink and socialize with others. It is the most important event in Brazil and if you have the opportunity to visit Brazil at that time, we say – do it!
The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China looks amazing on the pictures, but just imagine how it would feel to actually be there. It was built 2000 years ago during the ruling of Qin dynasty and it has been rebuilt a few times since. You can take a cable car that will take you to it, but if you like a challenge and want to test your endurance, you can simply walk up the mountain. There are about 14 sections that you can choose between to visit, so it is a good idea to make a plan before embarking on this trip. Some sections have been fully restored and are perfect for a light walk, while others demand a certain level of strength and determination.
If you are a nature lover and want to spend your vacation exploring the wilderness, then African Safari is the best thing for you. Visit Tarangire National Park in Tanzania and observe wild animals such as lions, giraffes, hippos, and others in their natural habitat. You will also get a chance to visit small villages, meet locals and experience their day-to-day life. In addition, if you enjoy hiking, don’t miss the chance to climb Kilimanjaro on the Machame route.
In case you are on the hunt for a perfect place for a romantic getaway, we recommend you Venice, Italy. It is also known as the Floating City, because it consists of 118 islands that are connected by bridges and canals. When in Venice you should go on a gondola ride. The gondolier will navigate through numerous canals while telling you interesting stories about historic buildings and maybe he will even sing a song for you. Absorb alluring sights of Venetian architecture, stroll through narrow passages and visit museums and palaces to see famous pieces of art.
Putting all your preferences aside, The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis is a phenomenon that everyone should perceive, and the best place to do that is Iceland. Occasionally you can see it from the capital city of Reykjavík, but you will have the better view of this celestial wonder if you leave the town and escape artificial lighting.
To conclude, we have tried to provide you with a list of diverse destinations you should add to your bucket list.
