July 26, 2017

Do you love traveling? If you have been bitten by the travel bug, then you love flying between continents, whisking your way through airports while dragging your luggage and travel handbags in tow. The spirit of travel is in the blood and if you have a yearning to cross borders and see the world then here are our top five destinations to travel to.

1-Thailand

There is no other city in the world quite like Bangkok. The hustle and bustle of the streets never seem to cease and the lights of the city sprinkle the early hours of the morning as you wander the food markets and take in the sights. Once you are done in the city, take a junk to one of the many islands to experience the clear water, magnificent island cliffs, and sandy beaches.

2-Cape Town

The magic of South Africa is captured in one tiny corner of the country. Cape Town is a mesmerizing city that is filled with amazing natural wonders and historic landmarks. Pierce the skyline and the cloudy tabletop with a cable car ride up the legendary table mountain or hike it if you are feeling adventurous. Take a drive through Chapman’s Peak and witness the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. Head on down to Hout Bay for some fish and chips and then spend the evening sipping on cocktails at a trendy bar in Camps Bay as you gaze out over the water

 

3-Amsterdam

This Dutch city is a modern marvel of engineering. The city itself actually sits below sea level and the water is kept at bay by the use of a giant lock system. These barriers keep the city dry and also allow the water to flow through its concentric canal system that runs through the boroughs of the city.

Amsterdam is filled with so many great things to do. Take a tour of the Heineken factory and sip a beer on the roof. Take a canal ride on one of the barges and visit the Anne Frank museum Amsterdam is home to some of the world’s most luxurious hotels and who can resist the temptation of taking a stroll through the red light district?

4-The Carribean Islands

For an out-of-this-world island holiday experience, visit the Caribbean. This chain of islands just off of the shores of the Americas is home to friendly people, amazing island cuisine and some of the clearest, warmest waters you will ever have the pleasure of swimming in. The long warm days lead to warm nights with cocktails and dinner on the beach.

 

5-New York City

The Big Apple, everyone’s heard of the world’s most famous city. From the moment you arrive at JFK international airport and take the Brooklyn Bridge over into the city, you will be spellbound by the skyline that reaches for the stars. Take a walk in Central Park and do some high-end window shopping in the luxury boutiques of 5th Avenue. Get a Yellow Cab into the financial district and have your photo taken with the brass bull outside of the New York Stock Exchange.

 

 

Stroll down Broadway in the evenings and attend a show. Go for dinner on one of New York’s finest restaurants and then spend the rest of the evening looking out at the bright lights of Time Square while you sip on a New York cocktail. New York is known as the city that never sleeps and after a trip to the world’s busiest city, you will understand why.
