Starting off with a classic, Seville is a city that can't be missed. If you want to fully merge with the Spanish culture and traditions, you won't regret checking out the heart of the Andalusian region.
Are you looking for something more exotic and uncommon? Then Kuala Lumpur is the place for you! Malaysia's capital city holds the charm of a western metropolis and the mysterious wilderness of an Asian country. This option could bring everyone together.
If you can't wait to get out of the city noise and chaos, you might want to check out Yosemite National Park in California for some peace and tranquillity. This world-known park extends for 3,074 sq km and gives off completely different vibes in each season. Waterfalls, mountains, breathtaking sunsets and so many different species of animals... is this what you need to recharge?
Budapest is one of the many less known gems that Europe holds. Did you know that the city is split in half by the Danube river? Its two sides are called 'Buda' (western side) and 'Pest' (eastern part)? Buda is the oldest part while Pest is the more modern side of the city. These two faces of Budapest are so different that you'll feel like you've visited two separate cities!
Are you a fan of astonishing landscapes and views? Then Moab in Utah state should be your next destination. Located in Arches National Park, Moab is home to some of the most incredible red rock formations such as the 'Balanced Rock' and the 'Delicate Arch'.
Back to Europe and it's beautiful cities! Despite not being a capital city (Ankara is Turkey's capital!), Istanbul best represents the country's history, culture and art. Get lost in the city's colours, spiced scents and many mosques!
When visiting Australia, you can't miss visiting Uluru (also known as Ayers Rock). This enormous rock in the middle of the Central Australian Desert could leave you breathless at sunrise as its stone starts turning bright red/orange when hit by the sunlight. Amazed yet?
Are you wondering where you can enjoy both sea and mountains, leisure and culture, good weather and delicious food? Then the place you are looking for is Sicily! This magical island, located right in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, will have your heart stolen. Land in Palermo or in Catania and start exploring the many wonders that this island offers!
Have you ever dreamed of being stranded on a paradise island that nobody else in the world knows about? This is what happened to Leonardo Di Caprio in the movie The Beach. The movie was set in Maya Bay on the Ko Phi Phi Le island in Thailand. This unbelievable beach was closed to the public for several years due to tourist overcrowding. However, it has reopened again starting from January 2022.
Are you looking for a peaceful and romantic weekend getaway? Get ready to dive into the fairytale looking Cotswolds, England! This place will transport you out of reality and into another dimension and time made of enchanted little villages surrounded by green meadows... charmed yet?
If you're a big fan of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, then visiting Hobbiton in the Waikato District in New Zealand should be on your 2022 bucket list! The village, home to the hobbits, was built for the movies and now is a world famous attraction. Go for a walk across the Shire and you might end up embarking a crazy adventure!
Sichuan is a Chinese province located in the southwestern part of the country. It's the perfect destination if you love exploring and being surrounded by extraordinary nature without encountering crowds of tourists. Sichuan also hosts the Giant Panda Sanctuaries that is home to more than 30% of the world's giant pandas, which are considered to be a high endangered species.

The lovely county of Kerry is located in the southwestern part of Ireland. This region also hosts the Kerry Biosphere Reserve, listed among UNESCO's natural sites. Take a glance at the Atlantic Ocean from the typical green cliffs and go on incredible hikes across the Irish mainland.
Is pink your favourite colour? Then you can't miss taking unforgettable pictures of the so called 'Pink City', or else known as Jaipur. Every building within the city walls is painted with the typical terracotta pink. This colour was chosen to impress Prince Albert in 1876 during his tour of India, as the colour pink is said to be a symbol of hospitality and welcoming.
Seattle could be the perfect destination if you're looking for a place that holds both the chaos of the metropolitan city and the calmness of the mountains. Moreover, the city offers so many attractions: the Space Needle, the Museum of Pop Culture, the Seattle Acquarium... it's hard to pick.
Probably Bali has a spot reserved on every travel bucket list. Far from Jakarta's hustle the small island of Bali has become famous for its exotic beauty and peaceful lifestyle. Hop on a bike and discover this magical island's many and mysterious wonders!
