Places You Should Visit Before You Die

These are my top recommendations of places you should visit before you die!

Maui, Hawaii

The Hawaiian Islands! Rings a bell already? Maui is located in the state of Hawaii and is the second largest of the Hawaiian highlands. Commonly dubbed as Magical Maui, the island offers unparalleled sceneries and a unique tropical experience that makes it the must-visit Hawaiian island. A Hawaiian vacation is always deemed to be a relaxing moment; however, one is bound to be overwhelmed with the numerous activities one can engage themselves in while in Maui island. After all, how do you expect to just lie by the pool while you could go snorkelling in Molokini, watch the churning waterfalls in the Haleakala National park or check in with the sharks at the Maui Ocean park?

The island offers the best of the tropical experience with high-end resorts yet also accommodating those travelling on a budget. You are bound to gaze at the tallest cliffs in the world while taking a horse ride in the rugged Molokai popularly known for its serenity. The islands are also well known for the humpback whales. One can catch a glimpse of thousands of whales that migrate from Alaska to the warm Pacific to mate and give birth. Who said you cannot visit the garden of Eden? Maui offers us one with more than 750 species of plants. Your garden experience is not over before you visit the Lavender gardens filled with acres of lavenders, flowers and countless serene spots. You will be able to experience the real Hawaiian culture in the Old Lahaina Luau and experience the abundance of tastes of the Luau buffet. Don’t forget to order the Kalua pork! After an overwhelming day, you could decide to spend the night at the world largest private island at the Four Seasons Lanai. Remember, A Maui experience is not complete without the thrilling long drive down the road to Hana!

Maasai Mara, Kenya

Have you ever been to a wildlife Safari? It is not a safari until you visit Maasai Mara National Park located in Kenya. With millions of wildlife to see, you are also bound to experience one of the major wonders of the world as millions of wild beasts and Gazelles migrate from Kenya to Tanzania in cycles while crossing the dangerous and crocodile-infested Mara river. The thrill is a lifetime moment for all the people who love wild Animals. You are bound to see live moments as lions and cheetahs hunt down their prey for food. Wildebeests, Gazelles and Zebras racing frantically to escape from their predators.

There are luxurious resorts built in the park that enables you to spend nights among wild animals. The Governors Luxury Camp is strategically stationed next to a water point where the animals come to drink. You will be able to see rhinos, elephants, giraffes, lions, cheetahs: the list is endless. This is probably going to be your closest proximity with a wild animal roaming freely in its own habitat. The resorts also offer birdwatching from the comfort of your suites. With over 470 species of birds, you are bound to come face to face with giant kingfishers, the great heron and the great white egrets among many others. A hot air balloon ride across the park will enable you to have an aerial ground of millions of wild animals in their habitat. While at your resort, you will probably be woken up by a giraffe grazing around and one is able to take a safari walk under the strict supervision of a safari guide. Your Safari is not over before you interact with the rich Maasai culture. You are also able to enjoy a rich African cuisine and buy lots of Souvenirs to take home from the rich Maasai Community. Remember, it’s not a safari till you visit Maasai Mara!

The Maldives

The Maldives is a sovereign state located in the Indian Ocean Southwest of Sri Lanka. The island of romance and love awaits your presence! The Maldives showcases a thriving culture, scores of decadent cuisines and a scenery that is bound to remain glued on your mind for the rest of your life. After a long flight to the Maldives, for your own health safety, I would advise you book an underwater spa date to steam off the fatigue. This is a classical welcome note to the islands as you look forward to the amazing activities you are bound to engage in during your visit. Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi is the world most exotic underwater Spa. You will enjoy hot rocks, cold ice, champagne and couture facials. Enjoy a massage while staring at marine life in the scenic turquoise ocean. The Maldives will then usher you to their high-end resorts that not only accommodate you but also offers you the opportunity to network for those who are business minded with professionals from all over the world. Finolhu fish and crab shack is the place to be!

There is something to the Amilla Fushi beaches that always drive most of the couples that go there for a private picnic in the sandbank. It is believed that the glowing ocean due to the pristine sand and its shallow nature always creates a beauty that leads close to 80% of couples to their engagement. The Per Aquum Niyama offers a traditional sunset dhoni cruise that also allows you to watch somersaulting dolphins as you sip champagne in a serene environment. The culture is diverse but I would personally advise you not to leave the islands without having a taste of the Nosh on Mas Huni. Do not forget to party it up in the beaches of Finolhu while dancing along the Boduberu dancers. If you are looking to rekindle your love sparks, note the Maldives down. You will never go wrong with a Piano deck date at the Baros amidst a cool breeze from the Indian Ocean! The Maldives is the place to be for all the lovebirds!
