Plenty of people return to the same place on vacation, year after boring year. How about a changem and some inspiration? Challenge accepted. There’s an entire world out there, 196 countries, and pretty much every one is more exciting than going to Disney World again and again. This is the moment when your choice becomes difficult, and we jump in to help. Here are the 10 best countries to visit in 2015!
Disparate cultures converge in Morocco; EEuropean, Arab, and African influences make for a unique country. Visitors may frequent the food stalls in Marrakech, gawk at Islamic architecture like Hassan II Mosque, or trek their way across the Sahara Desert. I promise you, you won’t get bored here.
9. St Lucia
This Caribbean paradise offers touirst the chance of trekking through a rainforest or flying on a full moon zipline at night. Who knew, right?
8. The Philippines
Manny Pacquiao is from The Philippines, so that’s one way of looking at it. But gorgeous beaches, friendly locals, and stunning natural scenery is also part of the Philippines’s attratcions and charm.
Serbia makes up for its lack of Mediterranean coastline by being cheap. Since it’s not part of the eurozone, so prices remain in a low range. Visitors may enjoy the Tower of Skulls, which is exactly what it sounds like: a tower built out of human skulls, as well as various other attraction while also keeping their bank account balanced.
6. Republic of the Congo
Gorilla-spotting in the Parc National D’Odzala doens’t sound that nice, neither does getting schooled in history at Brazzaville’s National Museum of the Congo; however, visiting the Gorges of Diosso, a natural marvel in Pointe Noire sounds better. There’s plenty to see here, but be advised this isn’t what you’d call a safe place.
Ireland is the place that practically invented drinking whiskey. Aside from that attraction, you may also traverse the 26,000 acres of woodland at Killarney National Park, and soak in the view of scenic mountains and lakes; or visit Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim, where 40,000 basalt stones remain after an old volcano eruption. Beautiful.
You can go surfing or hike up a volcano, and both of those things are pretty awesome. The small Central American nation boasts loads of surf camps along its Pacific Coast, or if you feel like playing with fire, you can explore the volcanoes at Masaya Volcano National Park. Exotic, right?
Travel back to the 14th century with a visit to Trakai Island Castle, take a brewery tour through Vilnius, and walk the historic/more than slightly creepy Hill of Crosses. Your choice, but I’d advise not doing all of those in the same day.
Namibia sounds far out for most people, but once you get there, you can snuggle up close to wildlife on a safari through Etosha National Park, hike the 52-mile trail around Fish River Canyon, and visit the abandoned town of Kolmanskop. There’s more ways than one to admire beauty.
Singapore has plenty going for it these days, such as the Botanic Gardens, street food at Maxwell Road Hawker Centre, Singapore Slings or the Raffles hotel. The nightlife here will wear you out.
