Our 5 Favorite International Travel Spots
For both variety of sights, geographical excitement and modern conveniences there’s no better place to visit than South Africa. In one trip you can hit gorgeous sandy beaches, some of the best nightlife in the world, feed great white sharks, and see some of the world’s coolest animals in the world on a safari.
Another great destination for a variety of locales, culture, and history. Some of the best cuisine in the world can be found in Spain, in such cities as Madrid and Barcelona. Experience the distinctly Spanish style of eating dinner at 11pm followed by a night of clubbing. Discover Barcelona’s incredible architecture from Gaudi and then hit the beaches of San Sebastian.
The Amazon is still one of the most exotic and mysterious geographies in the world. With so many places still unexplored and so many species of plants, insects and creatures still being discovered on a yearly basis, a trip to the Amazon is an absolute must for any serious adventurer.
Turkey’s wild history makes it one of the most unique places in the world to visit. A crossroads between Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, with as turbulent a history as you’d expect, Turkey offers culture and scenery the likes of which aren’t found anywhere else in the world. Take in the rich history, ancient sites, mind-blowing architecture and then experience some of the best modern cuisines, shopping and nightlife you could hope to find anywhere in the world.
As far as beach vacations go, it doesn’t get much better than Bora Bora. The whitest sands, the greenest waters, some of the most exotic tropical fish, and most serene geographies on the planet are in Bora Bora. The island chain features a calm lagoon perfect for scuba diving, kayaking or jet skiing–or simply lounging next on the beach–as well as top of the line lodging and dining. You can even book a room on stilts with a window to the water below you!
