My Top 5 Travel Destinations

Updated on September 18, 2016

Every person has the desire to travel outside the country he lives. As a young dreamer who hopes to travel and visit the world's renowned and famous attractions, even though it seems soooo impossible for me to achieve that for now (but i do hope i could), have prepared this early my travel destinations for the near/far future...:)

I am not a travel enthusiast, yet i love to discover and visit new places. I am not a professional photographer, yet i love to take pictures of everything my eyes could appreciate. I do not know how to swim, yet i still enjoy swimming even on the shallowest part of the sea. I easily get tired, yet i like to wander the streets where i can see beautiful places while passing by. And i do hope someday, i could visit the world, not just the countries on my top 5 list.

So, here is my Top 5 Travel Destination list. Let's start from the bottom.

5. London

Aside from the beautiful and magnificent views that can be found in London, i am more enticed by its royalty atmosphere and disposition. The castles and mansions, just like those i have seen on TV. It would be so awesome if i get to see one in real.

4. Hongkong

Hongkong is a popular tourist destination in Asia, perfect for family outing and bonding with your children. Famous stop over at Hongkong Disneyland. Shout to your hearts content with its splendid and thrilling rides and fill your day with fun and play. Bring yourself into the world of disney and fantasy.!

3. Spain

Its alluring and classical structures of buildings, houses and other facilities are very impressive and wonderful. I'd caught a glimpse of Spain, especially Madrid in a Taiwanese movie, Meteor Garden Season 2, and since that day forward, i have included it on my list. Besides it place and attractions, I am also drawn by its language, Spanish... hehehe... Hola!

2. France

J'aime la France! I really wanna visit this country, The City of Love! But of course, when that day comes, i won't go by Since i saw Paris' picture, i can't take my eyes of it. France is very very beautiful... It is called "The City of Love" and Paris is also known as "The City of Lights", well correct me if I'm wrong. I'd just read it somewhere over the net. Like what others say, love is on the air. A Perfect place for those who are in love, and even not but only just inspired...hehehe

1. Philippines

No bias around, but Philippines has a way lot more to offer when it comes to natural resources, up from its islands and mountains down to its fine white sand beaches and marine lives. Of course, before i go around outside the country, I wanna visit first my own and explore its famous places and getaways. Philippines may not have many structural attractions, but it is abundant with beautiful natural resources.

      I would love to go to the Philippines; Asia tends to interest me more now that I have already travelled to many places in Europe. I have seen many pictures of Philippines' beautiful sea side places that leave me speechless and wanting to visit.

      "No bias around, but Philippines has a way lot more to offer when it comes to natural resources, up from its islands and mountains down to its fine white sand beaches and marine lives." Oh you sure love our country and I do too! :-) Perhaps you can add to your list the Tubbataha Reef and the UNESCO world cultural sites in our country. Hope you make it to all these wonderful places lzlpio90.

      Hi Izlipio90-very beautiful photos and awesome choices. I love to travel and miss it. Now, I travel in the states and usually just back and forth to Michigan to see family.

      I have been to France, Switzerland, and Italy; I have also been to Mexico and Jamaica. I would LOVE to visit Spain and your outstanding photos of the countryside in the Phillipines makes me want to visit it as well.

      Isn't it awful what is happening in London right now with all of the burning and rioting?
