The Top Travel Destinations:
Israel is an underrated tourist destination and offers picturesque beaches, endless historic and cultural sites as well as modern restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs.
If you visit Israel, make sure to visit the Western Wall, which is located in Jerusalem and is better known as the Wailing Wall. The Western Wall was built in 19 BC and attracts thousands of Jewish pilgrims each year. Who visit the wall in order to pray as Jews believe that god’s presence never leaves the Western Wall which is all that is left of the Second Temple of Jerusalem. Some individuals even write down their prayers on small pieces of paper which they roll up and place in the cracks of the wall. Even if you’re not religious, it’s a moving experience to watch individuals from around the world gather at the wall in order to pray.
After spending some time at the Western Wall, you may want to book a day trip to the Dead Sea. Which many people believe can cure a wide variety of ailments. Just be careful not to put your head underwater as the Dead Sea has a high salt content and can permanently damage your eyes.
Not only is Thailand an inexpensive country to visit, where you can stay in a four or five star resort on a budget but Thailand is also an incredibly friendly nation and is often referred to as the land of smiles. Better yet, Thailand boasts a wide variety of idyllic islands many of which haven’t been overrun with tourists and which are ideal for romantic getaways.
While in Thailand, it’s also a fun idea to ride in a traditional tuk tuk and to purchase handcrafted souvenirs and tasty snacks at one of Thailand’s bustling markets. Just remember to practice the art of haggling as in Thailand buyers and sellers negotiate on the prices of items and you’re not expected to pay the first price which you’re quoted.
While the majority of tourists who visit Thailand visit Phuket which is located on Thailand’s stunning coast, it’s also worth venturing further inland in order to visit one of Thailand’s elephant sanctuaries. If you’re passionate about animal welfare you also be interested in volunteering at an elephant shelter for a short period of time.
If you’re not afraid of venturing off the beaten tourist track, it’s well worth booking a plane ticket to India. On a tour of India you’ll be able to visit Mumbai, which is the home to Bollywood, which is India’s equivalent of Hollywood. If you’re lucky you may even get to be an extra in a Bollywood film. Another experience which is well worth seeking out on a trip to India is traveling across India on a luxurious steam train. Which will allow you to see India’s countryside and villages from the comfort of your train.
Lastly, it should go without saying but no trip to India is complete without visiting the Taj Mahal, which is one of the grandest buildings in the whole world.
So if you’ve caught the travel bug and are itching to book your next international adventure, you can’t go wrong planning a trip of a life time to India, Thailand or Israel.
