Travelling drains away all the stress and monotony that has been built up inside us. Every once in awhile, the heart craves a change of scenery and even a few days away can rejuvenate one. Our planet is one of the most beautiful things and it boasts of places that leave the mind in a daze. Here are a list of exotic places that one must visit at least once in a lifetime. Happy travels!
Malta’s island of Gozo region is an enchanting part of the Maltese archipelago. It is by far one of the top diving destinations in the Mediterranean, and it boasts of mystical backwaters, historical forts and amazing panoramas which make it a must-see for any traveller’s bucket list.
Known as Turkey’s most visually appealing region, Cappadocia is the home to beautiful caves, clefts, pinnacles and ‘fairy chimneys’ (pointed rock formations). Volcanic eruptions formed this surreal moonscape. You can also witness the hot-air balloon ride here which makes the region look like it’s popped out of fairy-tales.
Isle of Skye, Scotland
The stunning beauty in the backdrop of the misty Cuillin hills is the most apt place for beautiful hikes and spectacular photos. The greens soothe the eyes and the friendly locals make for a trip worth remembering. You can also visit some of the exotic Scottish castles and try on the bagpipes and the plaids.
Namibia’s Sossusvlei is full of picturesque sand dunes surrounded by clay pans and looks like it has been lifted right from one’s dreams. The Deadvlei, where the dead acacia trees offer a striking contrast to the white shiny salty floor of the dessert is one of its most surreal attractions.
Hamilton Island, Australia
Hamilton is the most beautiful locales that Australia can boast of and has a number of exotic features hidden here. The island has no cars or scooters, you either travel by golf carts or walk. Hamilton island is a short (helicopter) ride away from the heart shaped coral of the Great Barrier Reef and has the Whitehaven beach which is 7 kms long and comes under the ‘Top 10 beaches of the world’.
So pack your bags, book your tickets and gear up for the most amazing journey of your life!
