From breathtaking mountainous regions to wild woods, deserts & stunning islands. If you can dream of a beautiful location, the world has destinations to match your vision.
I have not been to many of these destinations, however, I certainly hope to be able to make it to some of these places someday as they are on my bucket list!
If you’re on the verge of planning your most special vacation ever, here are some the best of the best options my travel friends have recommend to me.
1. New Zealand- South Island
If your vacation this year is all about majestic landscapes, then you don’t need to look further than the South Island of New Zealand. Some of the top attractions of this vacation spot include:
- Mount John Observatory at University of Canterbury
- UNESCO Word Heritage Site
- Fiordland National Park
From unleashing your inner daredevil at the world’s two most accessible glaciers here to admiring the star-lit magical skies, there’s nothing this place leave to the imagination. Besides, you wouldn’t tire of feasting on the exotic wines and the delicious food of the Marlborough region here.
2. Australia – The Great Barrier Reef
For the nature lovers, the Great Barrier Reef of Australia is like finding your piece of Heaven on Earth. You will find some of the most unbelievable, stunning and marvelous creations of nature here. If you haven’t already made this your holiday destination before, now would be a good time to go.
This city does not need much introduction to anyone and we think it is a great option to consider. I was there in 1980 and it was very hot and of course crowded, at the time we were there the Eiffel Tower was not operational (I think it was a maintenance thing)
Paris is a city of lights unlike any other and this alone draws visitors from every part of the globe. Additionally, the breathtaking iconic attractions here are a must-see for every vacationer.
You’d love exploring the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. But the vibrant markets, charming cafes and the shopping districts will blow your senses away too. You will not want to recover from the magic of the cobblestone streets of Paris and the delicious croissants which are to die for!
4. Croatia- Plitvice Lakes
Head over to the Adriatic Sea Coast of Croatia. The Plitvice Lakes will transport you to a fantasy. This spot will have you lingering for hours on end one the border that lies between Zagreb and Zadar. This place is a paradise for all nature lovers.
You will find sixteen bodies of water here, all interlinking through fascinating bridges, cascading shimmering waterfalls and emerald forests that are ages old.
You will not overcome the wildlife treasures too of this place. From bears, wolves to birds and more, every creature in the book will pay homage to you here.I refer to the image from VIATOR.COM for their amazing article as well!
5. Bora Bora
You cannot imagine what surprises the little island of French Polynesia has in store for you. Do not let its diminutive size fool you for this island is a treasure chest of ultimate tropical beauty. The luxurious resorts, the lush jungles and the picturesque beaches feel like a modern day fairytale.
You will also find the dormant volcano, the crystal clear waters of Matira Beach and Mount Otemanu are quite enthralling.
