- The Himalayas
The Himalayas are a series of mountains that run across India, Nepal, China, Pakistan and Bhutan. They’re famous as they encompass Mount Everest, one of the most famous mountains in the world. If you’re not a seasoned mountain climber, don’t worry, you don’t have to tackle it. There are so many trails on these mountains, you’ll find one that suits you. There’s also lots of lodges and luxury resorts for you to take advantage of.
- Route 66
Route 66 is the fabled cross country route in the USA, starting in San Francisco and ending in New York. There’s all kinds of destinations in between that you can stop and check out on the way. They range from the stunningly beautiful to the small and quirky pit stops by the side of the road. There’s a reason Route 66 is so beloved by Americans, so it’s time to check it out yourself.
- The Great Wall of China
You’ve seen this marvel of ancient Chinese architecture on TV and in the movies thousands of times, so why not go there in person and see it for yourself? Take good walking shoes, as you’ll be doing a lot of walking along the wall. There are other options though, such as helicopter tours and cable cars. Take a guide book so you’ll get the most from your trip.
- Salar de Uyuni
This one’s for anyone who wants to take unique pictures of their trip. Located in Bolivia, these salt flats are pure white and are known as the largest in the world. If you want to go, you’re going to want to stock up on supplies, such as warm clothing, food, and even oxygen tanks in some cases. The photos you’ll get are sure to be worth it, though.
- La Tomatina Festival
Ever wanted to take part in a city wide food fight? You can do that at La Tomatina Festival. This festival, held in Bunol in Spain, involves throwing squashed tomatoes at each other. The tradition started in the mid 1940’s, and still carries on today. Make sure you’re wearing clothes you won’t mind getting stained by tomato, though.
- Hanami in Japan
Hanami is the traditional ‘flower viewing’ season in Japan, from February to May. This is when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, and locals start celebrating the spring season. Head to Japan and try the more remote areas, such as Mount Fuji, for the best experience.
These are just 6 of the best areas you can add to your travel bucket list. Get planning today, and start an adventure. You’ll never know where you’ll end up, or who you meet along the way.
