1. The Great Blue Hole

Belize is home to the Great Blue Hole, one of the world’s deepest sea holes, measuring in at over 400 ft. deep and 1,000 ft. wide. Adventurous divers descend into the Great Blue Hole in search of deep sea diving and cave diving in order to satisfy their curiosity. Typically, dives to the Great Blue Hole range anywhere in depth from 80 ft. for less experienced divers to 130 ft. for experienced divers that have more than 25 dives under their belt. The 130 ft. dives are specifically for cave diving.

2. Myanmar

Visiting Myanmar, Burma is an ideal travel destination for those seeking a glimpse into the simple, traditional life of a country untouched by consumerism. Though Myanmar is quickly becoming a tourist destination for many experienced travellers, it is still in its infancy stages of becoming a mainstream travel destination. Hot air balloon rides over the city feature breathtaking views of palatial buildings. The friendly people and the affordability of Myanmar, makes this destination a diamond in the rough. Myanmar is not only a place to see before you die, it’s a place to see as soon as possible before the city is stripped of its splendid simplicity.

3. Bora Bora

The picturesque destination of Bora Bora offers countless overwater bungalows and huts to luxury vacationers. The bungalows are set over a blue lagoon with luxury finishes indoors (many even include glass floors to look into the lagoon), an outdoor space and a ladder into the lagoon for diving, swimming and snorkelling. Due to the extensive number of overwater bungalow hotels in Bora Bora, most companies offer a nearly identical experience. Though many do cater to different segments of the market such as family-friendly or couples-only bungalows.

4. Venice

The city of Venice has, and always will be, one of the most coveted travel destinations in the world. Riding a gondola through the waters of the Grand Canal make for an unforgettably romantic experience. In order to experience the city more authenticity (i.e. with the least amount of tourists as possible), head to Venice in the winter.

5. The Australian Outback

The city that never sleeps is a must-visit vacation destination that every traveller should experience at least once. With bustling nightlife, endless entertainment and abundant eateries offering every cuisine imaginable at each corner, New York City offers something for everyone. Visiting the Statue of Liberty, taking a tour of the Top of the Rock Observation Deck and enjoying a stroll through Central Park are activities that truly encompass the New York City experience. If you’re feeling adventurous, order a hot dog or a pretzel from a street vendor to eat like a local.

7. Lake Retba

As one of the few pink lakes in the world, Lake Retba in Senegal offers natural beauty and wonder. Because Lake Retba isn’t a typical tourist destination, you won’t be offered a drink while lounging in a beach chair in a local resort. However, what it lacks in amenities, it makes up in natural beauty. The lake derives its pink hue from the astonishingly high salt content in the water. Swimming is certainly possible in the lake, though those that attempt to swim are often advised to slather their bodies in Shea butter in order to minimize the abrasion from the salt.

8. Yellowstone National Park


Located in Wyoming, USA, Yellowstone is the epitome of the classic all American vacation. With its geyser pools, waterfalls, natural fountains and abundant wildlife, it’s no wonder both Americans and international travellers alike are mesmerized by the Yellowstone National Park. The park offers various lodging options, or if you’d like to be more traditional, rent an RV and experience a truly American Yellowstone vacation.

9. Amsterdam

Amsterdam is known for its relaxed laws. Yet, the city has much more to offer than an interesting assortment of brownies. To experience some of the most valuable paintings in history right before your eyes, visit the Van Gogh museum where his earliest and most recognized work is on display. The breathtaking canals and architecture are certainly attractions that bring tourists to Amsterdam.

10. Dubai Aquarium

The underwater zoo and aquarium is by far one of the most breathtaking sights to experience in a lifetime. Cage snorkelling, shark walking and diving among sharks are must-do experiences for the fearless traveller. For the more reserved traveller, a glass bottomed boat ride, a stroll through the aquarium or a snorkelling adventure might be more fitting. Regardless of the activities you take part in at the Dubai Aquarium, it’s bound to be stunning and create the memory of a lifetime.
