The world is full of unique sights and sounds that are waiting to be explored by passionate travelers, and it’s up to you to find them. Whether you are looking for an active adventure or simply want to witness a breathtaking sight, there are plenty of places to satisfy your wanderlust.
If you need some inspiration before you book your next big adventure, learn about some unique travel experiences you’ll never regret.
Go on a Serengeti Safari Tour
If you want to enjoy a trip that offers an unspoiled wilderness and beautiful wildlife, you must make your way to Tanzania. Book one of many Tanzania tours to experience the natural beauty of the Serengeti, and have the pressures of organizing your own trip taken out of the picture.
If you travel from December to March, you can catch the annual Great Migration, which is one of the most breathtaking natural events in the world. You could drive for days and never experience enough of this breath-taking, open country.
Experience Vietnamese Street Food
Only true foodies can say they have experienced Vietnamese street food. You have not lived until you have enjoyed the aroma from its many market stalls, or tried flavor-filled dishes from the makeshift kitchens. The best place for food lovers to visit is Hué, which offers a wide variety of delicious Vietnamese specialties, such as banh khoai, bun bo, and chè. There’s no street food quite like it in the world.
Witness the Northern Lights in Lapland
Finland’s Lapland is not only home to Santa Claus, but it is also the ideal place to witness the beauty of the Northern Lights. The natural phenomenon occurs when solar particles hit the Earth’s atmosphere, creating skies filled with pale greens and dark pinks, which will take your breath away.
However, sightings can be hard to come by, so book a one or two-week stay to increase your chances of experiencing the natural light display, which commonly takes place between mid-August until early April.
Take a Helicopter Tour of Australia’s Outback
Traveling Australia’s Outback on foot or by car can be a fun idea, but will also require a lot of planning as there are risks involved due to the intense temperature. If you want to experience the beauty of the outback and none of the danger, consider booking a helicopter tour to explore the vast, unpopulated land. You’ll witness everything from rainforest mountains to dry, rugged land while hearing stories of the outback’s rich history.
Marvel at the Mystery of Easter Island
Easter Island is easily one of the biggest mysteries on the planet, as no-one knows who, how or why the 900 monumental Moai statues were created. The carved human head and figures are believed to have been carved between the 13th and 16th centuries in eastern Polynesia. In addition to the statues, you can also visit Rano Raraku, which is a stunning volcanic crater located in Rapa Nui National Park. You’ll find Easter Island approximately 3,800km west of mainland Chile.
Watch the World’s Largest Buffalo Roundup in South Dakota
Make your way to South Dakota this September, as the largest buffalo roundup will take place on the last Friday of the month. You’re bound to be entertained when watching expert cowboys rounding up 1,300 publicly owned bison herds, especially as the buffalo will have minds of their own. You’ll stand in a crowd of 14,000 spectators, watching what looks like a scene straight from the Old West.
Take a Dive into the Great Barrier Reef
There is a reason why two million people choose to visit the Great Barrier Reef every year. That’s because you can take a dive into 2,600km of colorful coral formations. In addition to 2,900 individual coral reefs, the Great Barrier Reef also offers thousands of varieties of fish, sharks and rays, and various species of dolphins and whales.
You also do not need to be a professional diver to visit the world’s largest coral reef system, as you can take an introductory dive or you could even enroll in advanced diver training to gain a qualification. So, whether you’re a confident snorkeler or need a little help, there’s nothing stopping you from exploring this incredible natural wonder.
With any vacation, it pays dividends to do your research into the location and use local knowledge to help guide you, so that the planning process is made as simple as possible. This will give your vacation that extra special touch. Regardless of what you enjoy and the type of holiday you are looking for, you can easily find the perfect travel adventure and make memories to last a lifetime.
