The Best Travel Experiences Around the World

--


The world we live in is so small, yet so vast at the same time. We don't need more than a day or two to reach almost any destination on the planet, yet we rarely venture far beyond the boundaries of our own comfort zone. The reasons are many and, truth be told, often understandable. Lack of time or money is usually the first one to pop up, but even if some people can save up enough money and can allocate enough time to visit some fabulous, remote destination, they rarely decide to do so. No, I don't get it either.
Provence, France
If you like lavender, you'll be in heaven. Purple fields cover the rolling hills of this region in France, providing the perfect setting for a romantic dinner with some of the most amazing you can taste. It's hard to tell whether your eyes, nose or tongue will enjoy the experience the most.
Sagano Bamboo Forest, Japan
Japan is worth visiting for many reasons. Its people and their culture is something that has always fascinated people from all over the world. One of the destinations recommended by numerous tourists is the Sagano Bamboo Forest, situated on the outskirts of Kyoto. Just imagine towering stalks swaying as the wind blows, making dramatic sounds as they collide.
Fiji Islands
You have probably heard about this tropical paradise, offering some of the clearest water and best waves for surfing in the world. There are many reasons why so many tourists flock to Fiji each year in search of some amazing and, usually, action-packed experiences.
Plitvice Lakes, Croatia
One of the best-kept secrets, hidden on the Balkan peninsula, in southeast Europe, is Plitvice Lakes (a World Heritage site). A total of 16 lakes, cascades and waterfalls of mineral-rich water are visited by many tourists in search of wonderful, relaxing, but at the same time inviting scenery.
Machu Picchu, Peru
For the more adventurous among you, the challenge here is to hike the famous Andes Mountains and visit the citadel built six centuries ago. Once you get there, you'll be treated to some spectacular panoramic views and you'll definitely never forget this experience.
Cappadocia, Turkey
Turkey is most certainly one of the most fascinating and varied countries in the world. The natural beauty, history and amazing mixture of cultures that you can find here will provide you with a unique and unforgettable experience. What is particularly attractive about Cappadocia is an opportunity to see rock formations (hoodoos) and panoramic vistas while flying in a hot-air balloon. Don't worry, you won't be the only one, as the sky is full of colourful balloons taking people high up to be able to see the area in its full glory.
Galapagos Islands
Charles Darwin came up with his theory of evolution after visiting this volcanic archipelago in the Pacific. Your visit may not have such a profound impact on our civilization, but if you're interested in endemic species, such as giant tortoises, marine iguanas, and frigatebirds, a visit to Galapagos is a must.
