Travel destinations, must see places in the world.
Montreal is Canada’s second biggest city, but you may think you are in France when walking its streets. The city’s official language is French and it gives Montreal a cosmopolitan, laid-back vibe that other North American cities lack. Montreal used to be known for its wild side, but much of that has been cleaned up. Of course, you can still find a great time in Montreal and you don’t have to look too hard to locate it.
Portland, Oregon, USA
Portland is a hipster’s dream. The cool American city is one-part indie rock, one-part craft beer, and two-parts young adults looking to build a great hometown. Portland sheds the cliché of what an American city should be. Located in the northwest, it is a cool, rainy region with plenty of outdoor space and forests to explore. Add in coffeeshops, craft breweries, wineries, and cultural events and Portland is a city to visit now.
Bilbao has gone from a city few wanted to visit into one of Europe’s top travel destinations. The Spanish city has become known for its food and wine. Bilbao is also attracting art lovers thanks to the Guggenheim Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts.
Hvar Island, Croatia
Dubrovnik has become one of the most popular travel destinations in Europe, but it is now overcrowded and more expensive than ever before. Hvar Island has since become a great place to go as an alternative. Travellers love the combination of history and beautiful beaches. The imposing fortress of Hvar and the Franciscan monastery are not to be missed.
Singapore isn’t for the unwashed backpacking community thanks to its expensive food and accommodation. That is one reason, it is one of the top places to visit in the world. While Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam are overrun with backpackers, Singapore hosts a different clientele. Beautiful skyscrapers, fantastic street food, and late-night markets are just three reasons to visit the country.
Seoul, South Korea
South Korea is unfortunately stuck between Japan and China, and is often overlooked by travellers. Yet, the country’s capital, Seoul, is worth visiting just as much as Beijing or Tokyo. Seoul has ancient temples like the Gyeongbokgung Palace, brilliant shopping at Myeongdong, and a great food culture unlike other Asian nations. Seoul is unique just like the people that call it home.
Tasmania, Australian island
If you want to get away from it all, then the Australian island state of Tasmania is the ideal place. Nearly half the island is protected leaving lush green forests, sandy beaches, and untouched wilderness. Nature lovers will fall for Tasmania at first sight. Organic and local produce fanatics will enjoy the variety of restaurants and pubs serving up items grown and made on the island.
Victoria Falls, South Africa
Located in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, you will find Victoria Falls. The majestic 108-metre high waterfall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Most visitors travel to Zambia to visit the waterfall, but there is much to do when visiting. The African nation has developed over the last two decades to meet the demands of travellers.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires combines South America and Europe into one fantastic bundle. It has often been called the “Paris of South America”, and it is easy to see why. Buenos Aires’ architecture gives it a feel that no other South American city possesses. It also has a culture all its own thanks to the millions of European immigrations that flocked to Argentina in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Nashville, Tennessee, USA
Nashville is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. Home to Vanderbilt University and a number of top companies, Nashville is decidedly southern while keeping a vibe other cities in the south lack. It is the home of country music and nights out can be full of great southern food, entertainment, and bars. Nashville has a lot of history as it was a significant city in the American Civil War. Its central location in Tennessee also means you can reach the Appalachian Mountains, state parks, and crystal-clear lakes in no time.
