Finally, the world has started to open up again, and travel, both local and international, is possible. Just a few decades ago traveling to another part of the world was something that only the wealthy and affluent could think of doing.
Luckily, this is no longer the case. Today, travel is more accessible than ever before and it is time for you to make the most of this opportunity.
Once you have sorted out the finances and emptied your calendar to make space for your trip, the next step is figuring out where you want to go. The world is a huge place and every part of it has something unique and special to offer.
It can be challenging to decide where to go so we have put together a list of a few locations that will definitely be worth your time.
1. Bali, Indonesia
If you are looking to get out of the cold and experience a tropical adventure, then Bali is the place to be. The region has a rich history and plenty of modern development which makes it an ideal place for tourists.
This island, located south of Indonesia and close to Australia, is well-known for its nightlife but it also offers plenty of scenic, natural locations that you can visit on your own or enjoy the many tours that are available. If you want to enjoy the tropical rainy season and want a quiet experience then visit in December, January, or February.
This is the off-season and there won’t be any crowds. If you don’t mind peak-season tourists then consider visiting between April and October when the temperature is great, the sun is out, and there is activity all around the island.
2. Tulum, Mexico
A lot of people know Mexico for the culture, the music, and of course the food. However, Tulum is a hidden gem in Mexico that offers world-class beaches and crystal clear water.
It is still a relatively unknown place so you can still enjoy the beauty of Tulum in peace as there aren’t hundreds of thousands of tourists crowding the beaches. However, be sure to arrange accommodation beforehand when planning a trip to Tulum because hotels are limited.
In terms of accommodation options, you can get everything from economical motels to boutique hotels, it all depends on your budget. Other than lodging, you can get food and travel done quite economically.
Moreover, there is a lot to see and experience in the neighboring areas around Tulum. The food is fantastic and there is plenty of entertainment for the entire family.
3. Sydney, Australia
If you are looking for a truly out-of-this-world experience then consider visiting Australia. This unique continent has spent so much time, so far away from the rest of civilization that everything from plants to animals and birds, has evolved differently.
The region offers a mix of activities, scenic locations, nightlife, and family activities. Australia is also a huge place.
If you like traveling by road then this is going to be a fantastic place to visit. There is plenty of indigenous history to explore and many remote locations that are definitely worth your time.
The weather is warm throughout the country and the sun can be quite sharp if you aren’t used to such a climate. Make sure you bring along plenty of sunscreen.
4. Cape Town, South Africa
South Africa is the gem of the Southern African region. It offers a fantastic blend of the modern world and the real African experience.
Popular cities such as Cape Town are swarming with fun activities and all the modern amenities you could possibly need. This is also a culture with a very old and very rich history so there is a lot to learn and explore.
If you enjoy nature, then there are countless wildlife safaris you can partake in, many natural scenic locations to visit, and a lot to learn about the local culture.
In the cities, there are plenty of activities for you to enjoy whether you like daytime activities for the family or want to immerse yourself in the nightlife.
All of these locations are available to travelers of all budgets. Whether you want to have a romantic, luxury honeymoon, or just want to get out with a bunch of friends and travel on a budget.
While all these locations offer all the things that people from other parts of the world would need or want, the real fun is in exploring the local specialties, whether that is in terms of learning about the history of the place, exploring local sites, or eating local food.
Be sure to make arrangements before traveling to ensure a smooth experience but be ready to take things as they come.
