There’s a reason Vietnam clocks in as our most popular destination year in, year out. Love great food? Bún chả, banh mi, pho, cơm tấm, banh xeo… there are plenty of noodle-y, soup-y, meat-y, herb-y, spicy type things for your tastebuds to enjoy. But if you’re the outdoorsy type, there are jungles, beaches and mountains galore to explore. And for the history buffs out there? A visit to military base Khe Sanh or the Vin Moc Tunnels are the best places to soak up some Vietnam War history (or as they call it there, the American War).
Morocco’s bustling medinas, vibrant landscapes and ancient cities are the stuff of legend. Why not pay a visit to the shimmering blue city of Chefchaouen? This captivating place is more than just an Instagrammer's dream – it’s remote enough that you truly get to experience authentic Moroccan culture. Further south, you might fancy getting lost in the famed medina of Fes or perhaps you’d rather spend a night under the stars, among the undulating dunes of the breathtaking Sahara Desert? Not a day goes by in Morocco that isn’t a feast for your eyes. And speaking of feasts… tajine anyone?
There’s something about India that captures people’s imaginations like few other places on earth. Those looking to explore their spiritual side are drawn to Rishikesh, the yoga-capital of the world with its colourful temples and ethereal river. Others love the hustle and bustle of Jaipur or Delhi, with hectic markets, spiced air and more delicious curries than you’ve imagined in your wildest dreams. In such a populated country, there are still opportunities to go off-road in areas like the Himalayan mountains. And of course, no visit to India is complete without witnessing a sunrise at the magnificent Taj Mahal.
Peru is a nature-lover's paradise. With a variety of treks (or a train ride) to reach the iconic architectural wonder that is Machu Picchu, this is a bucket-list item that doesn’t underdeliver on the hype. And then there’s the Amazon Jungle. Who doesn’t love disconnecting from modern society to seek monkeys, parrots and some truly remarkable local flora? The floating islands of Lake Titicaca are another sight to behold, where locals in colourful dress still live fairly traditional lives. Don’t forget to sample some ceviche in Lima – the internationally recognised food scene in the capital is not to be missed.
When it comes to delivering on classic travel experiences, it’s hard to surpass Egypt. The Pyramids of Giza are an absolute must-see, but don’t forget about the Sphinx, Luxor’s Valley of the Kings and the temples of Abu Simbel. Then, there’s the chaos of exploring a marketplace in Cairo, getting lost in the labyrinths of a perfume market, only stopping for a quick kebab to refuel. Or maybe a relaxing cruise down the Nile in a traditional felucca is more your pace. One thing’s for sure, you’ll never forget your time spent in this North African gem.
Sri Lanka holds a special place in the hearts of many. For one thing, travellers have really only returned to this island paradise in the years since the civil war ended, meaning there are plenty of lesser-known treasures for foreigners to discover. Head north and you’ll reach Jaffna, the previously off-limits northern capital, where you can learn all about the unique culture of the Tamil people who reside there. For the animal-lovers, Udawalawe is one of the best places to spot wild elephants in their natural jungle habitat. And it would be irresponsible not to mention the food – spicy, fragrant Sri Lankan cuisine is some of the world’s best.
The mesmerising rhythms of mambo and danzón are enough to get anyone in the mood for a trip to Cuba. No matter where you go across the island, you’re guaranteed to find music and smiling, friendly locals. Start in Havana, preferably cruising along the malecon in a brightly, coloured classic car. Then, you’ll want to spend some time in Vinales – lush, green, tabacco-farming countryside, where the nights end with spectacular sunsets and mojitos are always flowing. There’s also something to be said for some beach time in rustic Trinidad. This old-fashioned town might seem sleepy during the day, but just wait until the underground cave club gets going at night…
Cambodia is well-known for its epic array of glittering temples, and for good reason. When you’re watching a sunrise over Angkor Wat, or wandering around the pink sandstone of Banteay Srei, it’s not hard to see why. Cambodia’s beauty and slower pace can make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time. Visit the lively food markets in Siem Reap, where you can get your fill of many popular street foods – all manner of grilled meats, squid and even insects if you’re so inclined. And don’t miss the opportunity to learn about Cambodia’s sobering history at the Killing Fields and pay your respects to those who lost their lives.
Jordan might not be as well known as its other famous neighbours, but it is an underrated favourite among travellers. From the crystal blue waters of the Red Sea to the salty waters of the Dead Sea, this country is filled with friendly people, great tasting food and sights to behold. Sleeping under the stars in the desert of Wadi Rum is truly spectacular; this otherworldly expanse is a place like no other. But Jordan’s crowning jewel is Petra – the ancient Bedouin civilization that has still not fully been uncovered. The famous Treasury is a breathtaking architectural masterpiece, and the walking trails up to the various high points of the city provide views for days.
Australia is big, bold and beautiful, so it’s no surprise the Land Down Under is a popular choice for travellers. Learn about the world’s most ancient culture with the First Nations people at Uluru in the heart of the country, go croc-spotting in the wilds of Kakadu or take a road trip up Australia’s unspoiled western coastline. If the cities are more your style, a trip east to explore Melbourne’s bar and restaurant culture or check out Sydney’s famous Opera House and bridge could be on the cards. And of course, snorkelling on the spectacular UNESCO-listed Great Barrier Reef in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
