Top 10 Vacation Spots
The world can be a stressful and tiresome place; day after day working for that paycheck to pay the bills can get old fast. Luckily we have a solution to that boring existence - vacations. A vacation is a break from reality, a change of pace, the ultimate relaxation.
Of course this is only true if you pick the right destination spots.
A vacation is only good if the destination you choose to go is perfect for you. If you like the beaches go to a place with long, sandy beaches; if you like shopping then go to a big city. Not all of the top vacation spots in the world are for everyone but, there is, if you know what you're looking for, a travel destination for you.
What are the best vacation spots in the world? What are the best travel destinations on the planet Earth?
It's all on opinion, and here's mine:
Top 10 Vacation Spots:
Alright. This maybe a bit too obvious of a choice. But come on:
It's one of the best vacation spots, hands down. The ultimate family vacation spot, it has it all. Hundreds of rides for all ages, entertainment for a valued price, friendliness and wonder. Everyone has been to Disney World at least one and I bet you'd be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't have fond memories of the place. Perhaps it's the magical atmosphere that makes it so incredible; it's the intangible bewilderment that is the consciousness of everyone when they first walk through the gates.
Disney World has expanded and evolved over the years - better resorts and hotels, more rides and entertainment - but the principal, the one thing that has made it one of the top 10 vacation spots in the world has remained the same.
The island paradise is always equipped in the mind of vacation lovers. Long beaches, unforgettable sunsets, mountain backdrops with turquoise ocean: it's all very... appealing. Hawaii is the epitome of this kind of vision, featuring everything from five star resorts, to private beaches and caves.
Hawaii is made up of five islands each one easily accessible with each other. It is one of the top travel destinations in the world because it accommodates almost anyone; it has cheap vacation packages as well as expensive ones for whatever kind of value you're looking for.
Surf,lounge, swim,climb, explore,dive,cruise,build, shop, gaze, walk, run, bike, experience, are just a few of the words that describe the atmosphere in Hawaii. It is, without a doubt, one of the top 10 vacation spots in the world.
This is my personal favorite vacation spot just because it has such an eclectic mix of opportunity. For being such a populated place it is one of the smallest islands on the planet. It has the most natural diversity per square meter than any other place in the world and this alone makes it a top 10 vacation spot.
One day you can visit Milford Sound, one of the unofficial wonders of the world; the next day you visit Mount Aspiring National park, one of the most beautiful mountain ranges on the entire planet. You can spend a week shopping in one of the cities and the next taking the Whanganui journey, a week long kayaking adventure through beautiful untouched landscape.
Convinced yet? New Zealand is one of the top 10 family vacation spots in the world because of its electric nature; it will have a piece of wilderness for everyone.
Located on the coast of South Carolina, this is one of the hidden gems of the world. Boasting some of longest beaches in the world (some are kilometers long), Myrtle place is not only one of the vacation spots in the world but probably the number one family vacation spots in the world.
Almost all the resorts in Myrtle Beach are family oriented; some feature bowling alleys; some have arcades; some even have lazy rivers weaving in and outside the resort. The vacation packages are usually fairley cheap making it one of the most visited vacation spots in the United States.
Mrytle Beach is also a top 10 vacation spot because of all the golf. Literally dozens of golf courses span the area, ranging from beginner difficulty to that of the pro level. And the golf doesn't stop there - Myrtle Beach is the mini golf capital of the world. I'll say it again: the mini golf capital of the world.
If that doesn't get you excited then I don't know what will.
What do you take when you take one of the most storied cultures in the world, condense it, and then turn it into a living, breathing place? You get one of the top 10 vacation spots on the planet, as well as one of the most dynamic and culturally beautiful cities in the world. Paris is, simply, one of the best travel destinations.
The city is designed wonderfully that just walking the streets is a joy; history is abound and learning is constant. It's the kind of learning everyone enjoys, the one where just walking and observing changes your perspective on the world. Paris does that, and more.
Visit the Louvre to see some of the most famous paintings of all time; climb the Eiffel tower for one the more romantic views in the world; shop at some of the best shops in the world. Everything and anything is possible in the cultural capital of the world.
Over 7000 tropical islands. The second-largest archipelago in the world. Thousands of kilometers of untouched wilderness. Coral fringed islands. A rugged landscape feuled by broken rocks of unusual designs.
The Philippines are one of the top travel destinations in the world. It's a place of natural wonders, of snorkeling and diving, of hiking up high and looking down on a full and vibrant ocean. It's off the beaten path slightly it takes a little more effort to reach; this is a very good thing as much of the landscape is untarnished by overexploitation and big corporations.
The Philippines are a great place to go to experience an unexplored world.
British Columbia, Canada
British Columbia is a province in Canada that has some of the most beautiful wilderness in the entire planet. Most of it is untouched because most of it requires backpacking or bush whacking; in other words the majority of the province is untouched by any human design.
Some of the best backpacking in the world is in British Columbia. The Rocky mountains, the biggest mountain range in the world, spans through the edge of BC; spend weeks traveling up and down the rugged mountain landscape.
Glaciers, snow capped mountains, encounters with bears and other animals, pristine lakes, all are part of a giant list of the wonders of the province. A place to get away from the world, a place to explore and find catharsis.
Greenland isn't for everyone: it's cold, ice strewn, beautiful. It doesn't have the same appeal as, say, Hawaii, but that doesn't mean it does have the same sense of wonderment. It's the opposite kind of wonderment, more of a testament to the strength and uniqueness nature can present itself as.
Greenland is one of the best vacation spots in the world for the following reasons:
- Experience the Aurora Borealis.
- Take a cruise through around Greenland and experience the majesty of ice.
- Dog sled across one of the biggest ice fields in the world.
- The midnight sun, at some times of the year, will give you a terrifyingly stark perspective of the world.
