With sprawling choices of destinations but a cap on the free time to spend on holidays, how do you decide where to spend our next holiday? Travellers are now seeking to live like locals and experience the holiday destination by “doing” overseeing it. Though there are countries, near and far, to travel and explore, these top 5 picks remain everyone’s favourite.
London, United Kingdom:
With so much to see and do in London, you may initially find it overwhelming. Tower of London and Buckingham Palace are the must see in the itinerary of most travellers. If art excites you as much then National Museum and Tate Modern are your places to visit. Cabinet war rooms attract a lot of tourists in understanding the military history. And if you think British food is bland, the restaurant scene is fabulous here.
Visiting Paris for the first time? The Louvre, Notre Dame, The Eiffel Tower are surely on your list. But if you can, do spare some time to wander in the scenic boulevards of the city and enjoy food at local cafes. Shopping from Louis Vuitton to the local flea market, you will find everything here.
Do in Rome as Romans do goes the saying for a reason. One such unwritten rule is to never order your cappuccino after 11 am. Nicknamed as the eternal city, it’s only here you can drink water from a street fountain drawing from ancient aqueduct. Don’t miss your trip to Le Domus Romane di Palazzo Valentini which gives a fascinating insight into the Roman lives.
