Get inspired to plan your holidays. So, where will you go?
Japan, popularly known as “The Land of the Rising Sun,” is at the top of many travelers’ wish lists for a reason. To begin with, there’s Tokyo, one of the world’s most varied cities, where old and new collide. To mention a few things you won’t want to miss, go to a robot cafe in Shinjuku, pray at Senso-Ji, a 7th-century Buddhist temple, and observe the city from the top of the Mori Tower. That’s before we even get to Yakushima Island’s ancient forests, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Thoku region’s awe-inspiring waterfalls. There’s enough to keep even the most adventurous travelers occupied for weeks.
2. Bali (Indonesia)
Bali is home to forested volcanic highlands, beaches, and coral reefs, and is renowned as “The Last Paradise” and “The Island of a Thousand Temples.” It’s no surprise that it ranks eighth on our list of fantasy spots for our travelers to visit after this.
Pick up a surfboard on Kuta Beach, go diving in Padang Bai, and see Ulun Danu Temple, one of Bali’s outstanding examples of Hindu religious architecture. There’s enough to keep even the most daring hearts occupied for days on Indonesia’s most visited island.
Food and fashion have become important aspects of Italian culture. From Tuscany’s world-renowned wineries and Emiglia Romagna’s prized parmesan cheese to Neopolitan pizza and the Roman art of carbonara, each region has its own distinct flavors. Rome is one of their ideal destinations to visit once the trip is finished. The food isn’t the only incentive to visit “The Eternal City.” Exploring the Colosseum, having gelato in front of the Trevi Fountain, and standing beneath Michelangelo’s masterpiece in the Sistine Chapel are just a few of the highlights.
It’s no surprise that Australia ranks third on the list of fantasy places, with its golden sandy beaches, aboriginal history, and world-renowned coffee culture. Grab a surfboard and enjoy the crystal-clear waves along the Gold Coast, immerse yourself in Sydney’s culture, including the historic Opera House, and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef and come face to face with a rainbow of colorful corals. Perth, on Australia’s West Coast, is a must-see, as is Uluru, the country’s famed sandstone monolith that is holy to indigenous Australians.
5. The Seychelles Islands
The Seychelles islands are so much more than just sun, sea and sand. From our largest most adventurous islands to our smaller, more intimate islands, we can guarantee this is the destination of your dreams.
The largest island in the Seychelles is Mahe, a mountainous, granitic island, home to the Seychelles International Airport. The island contains the largest share of Seychelles’ hotels, tourism amenities and retail outlets. The heart of this island is the charming little capital, Victoria with its many fascinating nooks and crannies, alongside a market that supplies much of the island’s fresh produce.
Thailand is dubbed “The Land of Smiles” for a reason. The people of Thailand are among the friendliest you’ll meet on your travels, and the sceneries will inspire you. The Grand Palace in Bangkok, island hopping across the tropical archipelago, getting off the beaten path in Chiang-Mai, and indulging the senses at Damnoen Saduake’s famous floating market are just a few of the highlights.
Spain is one of those countries that people want to visit again and again, so it’s no wonder that it ranks ninth on our list of ideal locations for travelers. Mainland Barcelona, Madrid, and Seville are all prominent cities in Spain. There are many reasons why Spain will find a place in your heart, from exploring Madrid’s food markets to seeking inner serenity on a secluded beach on Lanzarote, to drinking Rioja in La Rioja and trying ensaimada in Malaga. Don’t forget about the islands, which include Ibiza, the party capital of the world, and Mallorca, home to world-renowned artist Joan Miró and Moorish architecture that will inspire you.
Although Hawaii is technically part of the United States, the island is primarily known for two things: volcanoes and surfing. Because of its massive waves, it is considered the home of the sport and attracts adrenaline junkies from all over the world. If you don’t plan on picking up a surfboard anytime soon, there’s plenty to see and do in Hawaii, from its national parks, which are home to a variety of exotic species, including turtles, to its volcanoes, which can be explored in a variety of ways, including a sunrise lava tour.
9. New Zealand
A naturalist’s paradise New Zealand is the place to go if you want to get away from the city and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. Maori culture, Milford Sound (which Kiwis would tell you is the world’s eighth wonder), and soaking in a hot spring are all must-sees for first-time visitors. Hobbiton, the life-sized Shire set, and a trip to Tolkienesque Rangitoto Island are must-sees for fans of the Lord of the Rings movie. Rangitoto is the youngest island in the Hauraki Gulf, where you may hike through lava fields and caverns, and is one of Auckland’s most recognizable attractions.
10. Fiji Islands
Fiji is similar to many other tropical destinations with its blue waters, gleaming sands, and opulent resorts. Similarly, the 333 islands cater to all types of lovebirds. Surfers and divers, for example, admire the archipelago’s excellent waves and coral reefs. Fiji, on the other hand, has an otherworldly quality that sets it apart from other island getaways. Fiji offers you the delightful feeling of remoteness because it is more than 1,300 miles from New Zealand’s North Island in the South Pacific Ocean. When you’re sipping Fiji Bitter beer and watching the sun set beyond the horizon, you’ll be as far away from reality as possible.
