Happy New Year 2018!
It is a New Year, a New beginning of planning our vacation around the world. Have you already done it? This year, I planned to go someplace I’ve never been before. My Bucket list is so long, but I loaded my batteries for this year and I’m ready to go. So let’s begin!
Well, I’ve gone to the community of travelers at minube.net with a simple goal: find the greatest destinations on Earth. From the great ancient capitals to the modern cities of Asia, Australia, and beyond, here are the 10 cities you must see during your lifetime.
- Venice, Italy
How could we not include Venice? From its picturesque canals and grandiose basilicas to its colorful homes and cozy wine bars, there’s simply nowhere like it on Earth.
- Lhasa, China
Lhasa is the spiritual center of Tibetan Buddhism and the rugged Himalayas set against Lhasa’s incense-filled monasteries and palaces make for one of the most unforgettable views on Earth.
- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
From the world-famous Carnival to its iconic skyline, Rio de Janeiro is an experience for all five senses. The fact that its home to two of the most famous beaches on Earth doesn’t hurt either!
- Varanasi, India
Varanasi, one of India’s holiest cities, is a true experience for the senses. Seeing the sunrise as the ghats on banks the Ganges fill up with holy men, pilgrims, and locals is a sight you’ll never forget.
- Havana, Cuba
Exploring the streets of Old Havana is like stepping back in time to a world of majestic pre-revolutionary buildings, classic cars, and the smell of home-cooking mixing with the sea breeze. You will be able to see colonial homes, private homes with doors, as well as: art galleries, palates (home cooking at a small cost that far exceeds the delicacies of the restaurants on the island). By walking around you can reach the Bodeguita de Enmedio, the famous tavern (much like a Spanish bar) and have a mojito at the same place as did other celebrities (the most famous, Hemingway and Guillen).
- Luxor, Egypt
Set on the banks of the Nile, Luxor is the most stunning of Egypt’s ancient cities. Its proximity to Karnak, Thebes, and the Valley of the Kings makes it a must for history-lovers worldwide.
- Oia, Greece
Oia is the most famous town on the Greek island of Santorini and its gorgeous white and blue homes cascading down to the sea are the stuff that postcards are made of!
- Cusco, Peru
Besides being the main entry point for those looking to explore the Andes and Machu Picchu, the World Heritage city of Cusco is full of historic temples, monasteries, and gorgeous colonial homes.
- Sydney, Australia
From its iconic Opera House to its famous beaches, Sydney knows how to perfectly combine the natural and the urban and leaves no doubt about its place among the greatest cities on Earth.
- Buenos Aires, Argentina
Buenos Aires is often called the Paris of South America. From the wide avenues of downtown to the colorful homes and tango clubs of Barrio La Boca, Buenos Aires is a place to savor.
These are the Top 10 cities to be seen in 2018. Which city is your favourite? Where do you wanna go?
I wish you a year with many accomplishments and beautiful trips around the world! 🙂
