What are the Best Vacation Destinations in the World?

The best vacation destinations will actually vary from year to year, at least to a certain extent. Economic conditions will always fluctuate fairly regularly, and these trends will influence whether or not a particular area will be ideal for tourism.

However, some areas will be frequently listed among the best vacation destinations. Other areas have been overlooked previously, and they are becoming increasingly popular now.

People should research all of these locations in advance in order to make sure that nothing about them has dramatically changed. From there, they only have to pick the best travel destinations based on their own personal preferences.

Matera, Italy

Many people outside of Europe haven't even heard of Matera, Italy. However, it's a beautiful city that has an incredible amount of history behind it.

This city has been restored more recently. As such, it won't be nearly as busy as some of the more popular tourist destinations within Italy, like Rome.

Rome, Italy

Of course, for a lot of people, going to Rome is worth it. Rome has so much history behind it that a lot of people won't feel like they've really seen Italy until they've been there. Rome is still highly recommended after all these years, and that will probably always be the case.

Some of the must-see places in Rome include the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and the Pantheon. Rich with so much history, archaeology, and detailed architecture, most people will love visiting Rome.

Canberra, Australia

Australia, in general, is a popular tourist destination for people all over the world. Canberra is one of the most underrated cities within Australia. It's a relatively small urban environment that will never be as congested as some of the more famous cities within Australia.

Still, people will find plenty of things to do there. The city has countless cultural events, and it's known for its food. People will obviously be able to enjoy the gorgeous climate of Australia at the same time.

Paris, France

Renowned for its architecture and cultural heritage, Paris, France is an amazing place to visit even if you do not speak French. Whether it's sightseeing the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Notre-Dame De Paris, Arc de Triomphe, or Versailles Palace, the list of wonderous places to see in Paris goes on and on.

Kaohsiung, Taiwan

If you love art, culture, and music, then Kaohsiung, Taiwan is for you. In addition to its night market and cruise terminals, Kaohsiung is considered one of the best places to visit for experimental architecture.

They also have great public transportation systems and amazing hiking trails and vista for the more adventurous.

Tips for Making the Most of the Best Greek Cruises

If you're interested in Greek cruises, you may be thinking about how it wasn’t all that long ago that the Greek islands were considered the “playground” of the rich and famous, with the world’s wealthiest individuals jet-setting all over these amazing Mediterranean destinations and enjoying everything that Greece has to offer.

And while other islands now hold that distinction of being the “go to” destination for the incredibly affluent and the incredibly wealthy, it’s opened up Greek cruises and Greek vacations to the rest of us – providing you with an opportunity to enjoy all that Greece brings to the table without having to blow up your bank account along the way.

If you’re serious about taking advantage of the best Greek cruises around (cruises hosted by Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Princess Cruises, Carnival, or the Norwegian Cruise Line, just to name a few) you’ll want to make the most of all the advice we highlight below to create a truly special vacation experience.

Related: European Cruises | How to Make the Most of Your Cruise

Best Time of Year to Take Greek Cruises

The most popular time to visit Greece and the Greek islands on vacation is definitely between early May and late October, with July and August being the most popular time of year for people to take advantage of Greek cruises.

If you come in the middle of the summer, however, expect and anticipate temperatures that can get up to 100°F. June and September are a little bit cooler and the tourist season isn’t quite as crowded.

Also, if you come in September during the grape harvest at the Santorini Vineyards you’ll be able to enjoy some amazing wine, too!

Related: Why People Should Take Baltic Cruises

Greek Island Itineraries You'll Want to Check Out

The eastern Mediterranean islands of Mykonos, Santorini, and Crete are incredibly popular, as are Greek cruises that have itineraries that include popular Greek islands and Turkish ports of call as well.

Some cruises will take you straight through Italy to Athens and then finish up in Istanbul, and others will take you all the way to Israel if you are interested.

Related: Tips for the Perfect Mediterranean Cruise

Tips and Tricks to Make the Most of Your Greek Cruise Excursion

Right out of the gate, you’ll want to prepare yourself for the sun and the temperatures that you’re likely to experience on these cruises.

As we highlighted above, it’s not difficult for summer temperatures to hit 100°F or higher – and even if you go during a cooler season you want to make sure you have plenty of sunscreen to protect yourself.

The best Greek cruises always involve a couple of calls to port in some of the most beautiful Greek islands, and you’ll want to prepare yourself for the crush of crowds that can occur when numerous cruise ships at the height of cruise season disembark at the local islands.

Finally, you want to make sure you are best prepared for price fluctuations. The Greek economy has stabilized quite a bit over the last few years, but it’s been hit with some pretty rough and rocky times over the past decade and it’s impossible to anticipate fluctuations in taxes and currency value any further than a month or two down the line.

Have a look at your travel budget right before you disembark to make sure that everything is good to go!

Here's How to Guarantee You Always Get the Best Airfares

Airfare has become more affordable than ever before – and more popular than ever before with some of the best airfares – however, that doesn’t necessarily mean that airfare is all that inexpensive (especially if you’re looking to fly halfway around the world – or even further).

At the same time, there are a couple of secret tips and tricks that will help you find only the very best airfares for your specific flight itinerary. We include the most important ones below to help you save as much money on the best flights around the world!

Related: The Best Hotel Booking Site Online

Purchase Your Airfare as Early as Possible…

One of the most important things you can do to find only the best airfares available is to search for your airfare as early and as far in advance as humanly possible.

Airfare inevitably gets a whole lot more expensive during peak travel blocks of time around the year, such as holidays, and the closer that you book your airfare to these peak travel times the more money you are inevitably going to have to pay.

Book 6 months in advance or more and you can save a mountain of money.

… But, If You Can't Book Early, Book Late!

If you can’t buy your tickets six months in advance it may be advantageous to wait until the very last minute to get your hands on the best airfares at the best possible prices.

Airlines want to fly their planes at maximum capacity at all times, and if they have available seats at the last minute they will often heavily discount them.

It isn’t at all uncommon to save $100 or more on airfare by purchasing them 24 hours before a flight as opposed to 48 hours before a flight.

Related: How to Get Cheap Flights

Always – ALWAYS – Shop Around

At the end of the day, all of the different airfare aggregating websites are going to promise the moon in the stars when it comes to the least expensive airfare.

But the only way to be completely sure that you are saving as much money as you’d hope to is to shop around, compare the lowest prices at the individual airfare aggregating websites, and then pull the trigger on the best airfares for your specific needs, your specific itinerary, and your specific budget.

One of the leading comparison travel sites is Booking.com and is a great place to start shopping for your next trip.

Use the tips and tricks above and you should be able to save a mountain of money on the best airfares around the world!

Overrated Famous Travel Destinations

A lot of people have chosen specific travel destinations just because those areas were famous. In some cases, those travelers have regretted it. There are certainly famous travel destinations that don't live up to the hype surrounding them.

Obviously, opinions will vary when it comes to which travel destinations fall into this category, which makes it even harder to identify them.

However, a lot of people say that Paris, France is a good example of a city that has been romanticized too much. People from all over the world sometimes say the same thing about New York City and Los Angeles.

Although, other famous travel destinations really do seem to be genuinely popular with tourists. It takes some research to identify these famous destinations and separate them from the overrated ones.

When you and your love are deciding where to go on to get away, I have plenty of places that are romantic travel destinations for the two of you to consider when you are deciding where to go on your dream getaway.

Kaihalulu Bay, Hawaii

One of the romantic travel destinations that I am going to share with you is Kaihalulu Bay in Hawaii.

It has one of the most good-looking and one-of-a-kind beaches in the world. The beach is named Red Sand Beach, even though it is more a red-black when it contrasts with the blue water, black seawall, and green ironwood forest.

You and your love can spend the day at the cove and then go back into town to have a romantic dinner at Mama's Fish House- the best place to eat on the whole island.

Enders Beach, California

Enderts Beach is one of the most beautiful tide pool beaches in the world. This location is one of the greatest romantic travel destinations when the tide is low there.

You and your love can have a romantic excursion that starts off in Crescent City and then go to Enderts Beach road. The two of you will not want to miss the view from the vista point.

Then you should walk the mile to Enderts Beach so you can see the gorgeous ferns, how the wildflowers have grown, the tunnels that were created by the forest, and the spanning views of the Pacific Ocean.

As I previously mentioned, the best time to go there is during low tide because you can go all the way down the beach to the rock formations to see the beautiful view of the coast.

Romantic Travel Destinations in the United States

These are two of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world. Other places you and your love can go to are Cumberland Islands, Georgia where you can see animals that take refuge on the island, including feral horses that are there year-round.

When you and your love visit New York City, you can select from many Broadway plays to see, eat at fine-dining restaurants, visit the expansive and romantic Central Park, and go on a night boat tour around the island.

San Francisco is also one of the best romantic travel destinations. In this one-of-a-kind town, you and your love can tour the Golden Gate Bridge, visit the former prison Alcatraz, visit the Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory, see the sea lions at Fisherman's Wharf, and eat Dungeness Crab.

These romantic travel destinations are a taste of what our country has to offer. No matter which one of them you and your love choose to go, I can guarantee that you will have a great time and that you will love to go there.

Even though the Mediterranean remains the number one global destination for cruises, Baltic cruises are starting to garner a tremendous amount of attention all over the world – and for good reason.

Multiple Baltic cruises are available to take advantage of, most ranging from two days to seven days or longer, giving you the opportunity to see the Baltic region in a way that most people never get the opportunity to.

Yes, St. Petersburg in Russia remains the main attraction as far as Baltic cruises are concerned, but you will be able to visit a whole host of other cities and countries in the region. Cruise itineraries vary depending on the trip that you decide to take, but you can rest assured that you’ll never want for adventure!

Baltic Cruises and Their Itineraries

The most popular Baltic cruises are going to have you embark from and then returned to the cities of Stockholm and Copenhagen. Depending entirely upon the length of your voyage you may have the opportunity to see amazing cities like Helsinki, Oslo, and of course St. Petersburg (as we mentioned above).

Extended trips may bring you to parts of Norway and Scandinavia that don’t see a lot of “foot traffic”, the kinds of global destination that you may only ever visit on Baltic cruises.

Smaller cruises operate in the waters between Sweden and Finland primarily, and these are usually two or three-day cruises that aren’t quite as involved or as extravagant as those that really try to take in the entire region before the 10 to 14-day trip is over.

Tips to Make the Most of Baltic Cruises

The first thing that you want to do when you get ready for a Baltic cruise is to make sure that you have a currency converting application downloaded to your mobile phone.

As highlighted above, you’re going to likely hit numerous cities and countries – sometimes more than one each day – and you want to be able to effortlessly shop no matter where you call into port.

You’ll also want to make sure that you do your best to really pace yourself. There is going to be a tremendous amount of activity to enjoy when you are on a Baltic cruise, and you want to take it slow in the first few days or you may feel burnt out by the time the cruise ship heads for home.

Finally, don’t let some of the “bad press” about St. Petersburg scare you off. Yes, there are some pretty stringent Russian visa rules and requirements that you’ll have to meet – and the Russian language is very difficult to master without years and years of practice – but St. Petersburg has so much to offer that you will want to take advantage of this often times once in a lifetime opportunity.

What You Need to Know About Travel Websites

Travel websites will vary in type. However, most of them are places where people who surf the World Wide Web look for travel deals.

They visit travel websites in order to access lower prices for flights, hotel rooms, vacation packages and other travel-related expenses, such as rental cars and tickets to attractions.While every travel website doesn't offer great deals, a lot do provide visitors with easy access to lower prices.

There are also travel websites which aren't virtual storefronts. These types of websites provide visitors with information about destinations.

For example, a tourist board of a resort town in the Bahamas might play up the benefits of the area and keep visitors informed about key attractions, weather, where to dine, where to stay and other relevant facts.

There are also blog-style travel websites which detail personal travel experiences, such as diaries of trips or opinions about certain destinations. These may be very informative and entertaining as they help travelers to get a sense of other places before they even arrive.

As you can see, there are lots of websites of this type and plenty of variety to enjoy. Now, let's talk about travel deal websites, as they are the most popular form of travel websites.

Related: Travel Companies | How to Find the Best Company

Travel Deals Are Out There

If you're looking for travel deals, you'll find that the best travel websites provide exceptional assistance.

These websites, including Priceline and Expedia, offer cut-rate flights, hotel rooms, and packages, as well as many other types of travel deals. You'll find that travel deals vary widely.

It's good to know prospective travel dates before you begin using travel websites in order to research deals. However, if you do have the room to be spontaneous, you'll discover lots of last-minute deals.

In fact, last-minute deals often provide the biggest savings. Everyone is different, so only you know what you want from a travel website.

We advise checking out at least three travel websites before you book a cheaper flight, package or whatever else you're interested in. Some people don't take the time to comparison-shop in this manner.

These people may end paying more than is strictly necessary. For this reason, you should take the time to see what a few travel websites have to offer.

All of the websites that you check out should be reputable. Most of the biggest websites of this type are very well-known and they are legitimate.

If a travel website is not as familiar to you, it will be smart to look up reviews in order to see how it measures up in the eyes of consumers. Any website which gets a lot of bad reviews should be avoided.

There are good ones out there and there's no need to waste time using a travel deal website which doesn't offer superb customer service and authentic deals. Travel websites abound.

Some people use them in order to save cash on the cost of business travel, while others utilize them in order to save money on the cost of vacations.

Now that you know more about travel websites, why not visit one today?

What Alaskan Cruise Should You Take This Year? Let’s Find Out!

Alaska is the 49th state in the Union and by far the largest by land area. Encompassing an incredible amount of natural beauty, Alaska is the perfect state to take a cruise through.

Idyllic waterways, mountains, and untouched nature all come together to offer an experience not found anywhere else. One of the best ways to explore Alaska for yourself is with an Alaskan cruise.

What kinds of Alaskan cruise are there and which one should you take this year? Let’s spend a moment reviewing your options for Alaskan cruises.

Related: European Cruises | How to Make the Most of Your Cruise

What Types Of Alaskan Cruises Are There?

The three main types of Alaskan cruise include round-trip Alaskan cruises, one-way Alaskan cruises, and other alternatives. The round-trip Alaskan cruises are by far the most popular.

They typically begin from either Seattle or Vancouver before heading north along the coast. Alaskan cruises setting off from Vancouver provide an opportunity for a scenic rail trip for those landing in Seattle and then traveling north. Round trips are typically complete packages that offer a range of Alaskan cruise activities.

If you are interested in having more say over your Alaskan cruise experience, then consider the one-way Alaskan cruise. A one-way Alaskan cruise will typically begin in the south and terminate somewhere in Alaska.

From there, you can search through the incredible list of activities covered at Alaska.org and consider for yourself inland tours throughout the state. While one-way Alaskan cruise requires more planning, it can be less expensive overall.

Finally, there are other alternatives. Other alternatives refer to Alaskan cruises at the beginning and end of the seasons when they will typically divert from their standard route at some point and sail to a new dock for the next season.

Such routes can mean free days on the ship and a fuller experience. However, these Alaskan cruises often require a great deal of planning ahead of time.

Related: Antarctica Cruise | Land Matters Too

What Cruise Company Should I Go With?

There are many options for Alaskan cruises. Be aware that Alaskan cruises are often considered fewer pleasure cruises and more scenic cruises. While there will be fewer amenities on board, there will be a generally higher level of comfort.

Cruise Critic offers several different suggestions and information that you may want to consider for Alaskan cruises. Coral Princess, Island Princess, Celebrity Solstice, and many smaller operations all provide cruises in the area.

Ultimately, the Alaskan cruise that you go with will depend on what your availability is. There is a high level of professionalism and comfort on all major Alaskan cruises, so there is less of a chance of going with a company that will be a less than ideal experience.

With that in mind, all that is left for you to do is to review what Alaskan cruises work with your schedule and visit the attractions you are interested in. Be aware that prices for Alaskan cruises can change over the course of the season, and will be different every year to reflect the shifting costs of Alaskan cruise operation as well as things like docking fees, etc.

Some of the most dangerous travel destinations are places that many people go to on a regular basis.

For most people, when they go on vacation, they are wanting a break from everything that is going on in their lives. They want to be relieved from the stress in their lives from the bills to going to work every day.

Every year, many people spend a lot of money on their plane tickets, hotel rooms, pet sitters (if they have pets), child care providers (if their kids are not going with them), the food on their vacation, and for any fun trips and/or sightseeing trips that they go on.

Since they are going on vacation to get away from it all, these people do not want to go to a place where their safety may be at risk and that is a very dangerous place to visit. For this reason, these types of people will want to avoid these places that are not safe to visit.

For others though, they love the adrenaline rush, and they want to find those exciting places that have an added sense of risk. For these people, some of these places may be just what they are looking for.

Peru

The only real safe place in Peru is Machu Picchu. It is Peru's most popular tourist attraction and it is thought of as the only safe place in this country. The main reason that it is safe is because of the amount of the money it brings in on a yearly basis.

The rest of the country, especially the travel routes and rural areas, has terrorist groups and drug cartels in them. Therefore, most of Peru is not a safe place for tourists to travel to.

Bangkok, Thailand

Thailand as a whole is known to be a volatile place these days. Along with political unrest, there is also organized crime. Organized crime criminals and petty criminals are looking to attack and/or people that are there on vacation.

They may not get killed, but in a short matter of time, they can be a broke and penniless tourist, wondering how it all happened. Criminals often steal their money and passports. The police in Bangkok also do not care about the welfare of people that have traveled to visit there.

Acapulco, Mexico

This once very prosperous city in Mexico now has a bad reputation as a place where people that live there and visitors alike are under a constant threat. The drug trade wants to sell their products to tourist and the crime rate in the city affects them.

However, if it was really that bad no one would ever visit there. People still visit there, travel through the city, and leave the city with happy memories. Being on alert and using common sense is a good idea no matter where people travel.

Other Unsafe Locations

Other places that are not safe to travel in this world are Israel (bomb attacks and terrorist activity), Bogota, Colombia (drug trafficking and kidnapping), Mumbai, some places in India (pickpockets, sex crimes, burglaries, and scammers), and Haiti and the Dominican Republic (credit card fraud, bank machine tampering, kidnapping, thievery, mugging, assaults, robbery, and sex crimes).

Kingston, Jamaica is another one of the most dangerous travel destinations as it has drug activity and assault and robbery against tourists and Cape Town, South Africa have muggings, carjackings, and murders. Cape Town does have some safe areas, so travelers need to be on alert for the places that they visit in this city.

Hopefully, this has helped tourists learn about unsafe areas throughout the world. Their vacation needs to be a fun and relaxing way to escape from the chaos of their world and not to enter a chaos-filled world full of danger and crime.
