The Top 10 destinations
Naturally, we picked these destinations for a reason. The list contains totally unique places that you won’t find elsewhere, such as UNESCO World Heritage sites. We’ve selected the best Ancient Greek temples, and you’ll also find the most biologically diverse area in the world along with a true paradise on Earth.
1. Valle dei Templi, Sicily, Italy
This is an enormous archaeological site based near Agrigento, in Sicily. The complex has eleven temples, three sanctuaries, six necropolises, hydraulic works, fortifications, and more monuments. It’s a wonderful destination in the South of Italy and will bring you back to the Magna Graecia. The Valle Dei Templi is a great destination for history-lovers.
2. The Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia
This is the world’s greatest coral reef, discovered by James Cook. It is enriched with 900 coral islands and inhabited by several species of tropical fish, turtles, and sharks. It stretches for over 1,400 miles and is even visible from outer space! Sadly, plastic pollution and global warming are damaging it, so it may not be around forever.
3. Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Angkor Wat is an ancient Khmer temple that was built between 1113 and 1150 and dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu. Given that is the only west-facing Khmer temple (all the others face east), this is a unique destination. It has some stunning bas-relief sculptures and really charismatic statues of devata (gods). The Angkor Wat complex is close to Angkor Thom, the former capital of the Khmer Empire. Therefore these destinations are a 2-for-1 deal!
4. Jaipur, India
The pale terracotta buildings in Jaipur provide the origin for its nickname: “The Pink City”. Notable buildings are the Jantar Mantar, an open-air astronomical observatory. It has impressive instruments made out of stone for astronomy; the Hawa Mahal (The Palace of Winds), has a façade with 953 niches with intricately carved jharokhas; just outside the city, you will find Amber Fort, with a gorgeous interior design.
5. Laucala Island Resort, Fiji
If you are looking for paradise on Earth, your search is over. This private island has coral reefs, coconut trees, and postcard-perfect white sand beaches. Imagine yourself on a beach chair with a Margarita in your left hand and a book in your right hand. Warm weather and some wonderful sights. These kind of destinations are the best.
6. Rome, Italy
The Italian capital has almost 3000 years of history. Top monuments are the Coliseum (built around 70 AD) and San Pietro’s Basilica (built in the Middle Ages), but you can also find a state within a state (Vatican City) and the Liberty district (Quartiere Coppedé). Rome has larger gardens and parks than many other European cities (Villa Borghese, Appia Antica Parks, Insugherata Natural Reserve). With some great nightlife as well, Rome is the perfect city for a medium-long stay.
7. Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo
Virunga has some of the richest biological diversity on Earth, with 2,077 diverse plant species (some of which are native only to the park), 196 mammals, 706 bird varieties, 109 reptiles, and 65 amphibians. These include several critically endangered species, like mountain gorillas. You can learn more about Virunga by watching the documentary released via Netflix (another affordable stuff, with the money you save playing with Pointvoucher).
8. Machu Picchu, Urubamba Valley, Perù
This place is really magic. Built in 1572 by the Incas, this mysterious city is the third-largest archaeological site in the world. Some people say it’s life-changing. Although being hard to reach (a four-day hike along the Inca Trail, with altitude), the sunrise on the site is well worth the effort. Because of this, only adventurous people can enjoy this destination to the fullest, but it’s definitely worth the trip!
9. Marrakech, Morocco
Mosques, palaces, and lush gardens enrich this Moroccan city. The Red City (named after its brick walls) will amaze you, with the colors of its city center a particular highlight. Founded between 1062 and 1070, Marrakech has a UNESCO-protected medina quarter (the Arabic word for “market”). Discover this and other unconventional destinations around Marrakech in a longer trip.
10. Icy destinations: the Civilian Settlements, Chilean and Argentinian Regions, Antarctica
These are two of the hardest destinations to reach in the world. Consequently, it’s probably some of the most satisfying travel you’ll do in your life. Antarctica is a vast continent, but no nation has sovereignty here. There are only two civillian towns in Antarctica at the moment, Villa Las Estrellas (“The Stars Village”) and Esperanza Base (Hope Base). Less than 200 people live in these two fantastic destinations. The first Antarctic person, Emilio Palma, was born in Esperanza Base. Given that you can even encounter penguins and see the Aurora, these two settlements are once-in-a-lifetime destinations.
+1 Bonus: the Aurora Borealis, various destinations
The magnificent sight of the Aurora Borealis can be seen from the northern part of the world. Thus, there are various destinations you go to if you want to see it. Iceland is particularly good! In fact, it’s an otherworldly place to visit with geysers, volcanoes, and glaciers, and the Aurora appears from October to March. Fairbanks, in Alaska, is the only place in the US where you can see the northern lights, and they appear from the end of August to April. Wood Buffalo, Jasper National Park, or Yellowknife are three Canadian destinations that you can visit if you want to see this awesome light show.
Northern Scandinavia is a popular place to go to see the Aurora Borealis. The best locations are Tromsø, Norway with its alpine landscape, and the National Park near Rovaniemi, in Finland. In these destinations, the show is from mid-September to late March. Greenland is another destination that is far enough north enough to feature this beautiful natural event. You can go there for the Aurora from mid-August to late April.
Not so many people know that an Aurora can also be seen in the most southerly parts of the world. In those cases, it’s called Aurora Australis. The destinations that allow you to see the Aurora Australis are Tasman Island, in Australia, and New Zealand. Both places have dark skies, free from light pollution, and close enough to the magnetic South Pole.
