Isn’t it funny how some places stick with you long after you’ve departed, while others don’t? Who knows why – maybe it was the food, the people, the landscape, or just the vibe of a place. While we love to explore new travel destinations, we would love revisit some places that we’ve fallen in love with, and fall for them all over again.
Being invited to take part in a promotion by Booked.net – Top Destinations to Go There brought back many happy memories of our favourite destinations – and we wondered why we hadn’t written this post before now!
Beautiful, friendly people, golden temples, and amazing landscapes – Myanmar has it all. Myanmar is the #1 destination we’d love to return to because not only is it a beautiful country in so many ways, but we learned so much about the country and also about ourselves while we were there. It’s like no other place we have been to before.
2. New York City, USA
Ahh, the Big Apple. NYC is a vibrant, exciting city that never fails to amaze us. We loved that there was always something happening around every corner, and the melting pot of cultures, food, and neighbourhoods fascinated us! It really is the centre of the world.
3. Kahurangi National Park, New Zealand
One of our favourite spots in New Zealand, Kahurangi National Park was an unexpected delight that we discovered while on a South Island road trip a few years back. Camping as far north as you can drive on the West Coast of the South Island was idyllic (apart from the sandflies!), and the tannin-stained rivers and limestone caves in the Oparara Basin were like something out of a mythical land.
4. Rome, Italy
La Bella Italia. Rome is an ancient but modern city that never fails to fascinate. We loved Rome’s hidden surprises – the colourful streets of Trastevere, a multitude of gelato flavours in Centro Storico, and the vibrant markets in Campo di Fiori. Rome has a buzz like nowhere else we have been, and the scrumptious food is pretty hard to beat!
5. Koh Tao, Thailand
All of Thailand calls to us, but no place more so than the little island of Koh Tao. It holds a special place in our hearts as we got engaged there last year, and it’s such a pretty, relaxed place to while away the days. Koh Tao has such a successful combination of great beaches, delicious food, and epic diving!
