Like fine wine, some countries just get better with age. That’s why you should visit them more than once. Whether you’ll gain a new perspective because you’re older and have gained some wisdom or because they’re so culturally rich you can’t possibly explore them in one trip, these places clearly deserve a second look.
Thailand is a backpacker’s paradise thanks to cheap rooms and food, but it’s also one of the most vibrant and beautiful countries on Earth. While most countries have only a few hot spots to explore, every inch of Thailand is a treasure that can’t be seen in one trip.
Rome, Venice, Florence, Milan and Naples are just a few of the prominent cities in this historic wonderland. You could easily spend a week in Rome alone and never experience all it has to offer. That’s why Italy is deserving of a second trip, if not more.
Africa has no shortage of extraordinary countries to explore, but the real crown jewel might be Tanzania. From the unique adventure opportunities hidden among Mt. Kilimanjaro to the beautiful, thriving metropolis of Dar es Salaam, it’s a country full of exciting culture.
Our neighbor to the north is most synonymous with frigid winters and exceptionally polite citizens, but as one of the world’s largest countries it’s also teeming with numerous cities and towns to explore. On top of that, the landscape it practically out of this world.
China is expensive to visit which makes it difficult to explore much outside of Beijing. However, this expansive country is home to some of the world’s most interesting and ancient cultures, making it worth the money and time it would take to stop in for seconds.
Santa Monica, California, has such an incredible array of restaurants and bars, it can be difficult to choose one. Rustic Canyon on Wilshire Boulevard makes it easy to decide; the restaurant manages to clearly set itself apart from the rest.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
One of the best ways to experience and learn more about a culture is by looking for and picking through the local markets. Depending on the destination, markets can be found in the out-of-the-way nooks and crannies of larger cities or can function as attractions on their own merit.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
One of the greatest sights in the world, the great pyramids of Giza, stands towering in the desert, the imposing stature dwarfing tourists for miles. Visitors to Giza might feel twangs of adventure and exploration, but guests should be warned climbing the pyramids is forbidden.
