The world is full of many amazing cities to visit and you could endlessly travel in search of the perfect one. There is nothing wrong with searching for the right one, but you would really need to visit all of them to truly decide. To do this, you need a starting point and I made this guide to show you some very interesting places that you could potentially visit. I hope you enjoy reading about some places that I find to be fascinating./
Iceland is world famous as the capital of Iceland and it is naturally one of the most interesting cities on earth.There is a budding art scene there, a whole host of natural wonders at every turn and a cool bar scene to explore too. The city itself is also very beautiful with the traditional houses that have been painted in all sorts of colours, like blues, greens, red and yellows. If you are visiting Reykjavik you definitely need to experience something that every Icelander loves to do and that is enjoying time swimming in the hot springs that are dotted throughout the city.
This fascinating place was made famous by the Beatles after they took a trip to India in order to discover spirituality. Many people have since made the pilgrimage here and followed in the Beatles’ footsteps and the tourism in the area has now become totally receptive and welcome to visitors. You can enjoy yoga, meditation and much more in the area and it is truly a magical place. There are a number of cheap hotel options in Rishikesh, as well as more expensive retreat style options, so there be something for everyone here, from the backpacker to the middle aged corporate looking for inner peace!
Rocky Point, Mexico
Rocky Point is also known as Puerto Peñasco. This gorgeous area is closest to the states, only about an hour away from the border. What makes it so interesting is that even though it’s so close to the US, it’s a less popular vacation spot than Cancun or Cabo, which has preserved it. It holds on to a lot of authentic culture, and is complemented by gorgeous, tranquil beaches that are hardly ever overcrowded. This is a must-visit vacation spot!
Germany’s capital is one of the most interesting and hip cities that you could ever visit. There are a large number of people from many different countries living here, all are attracted by the art and culture scene that is unrivalled in Germany. There is also abundant nightlife that makes it the party capital of the world. The bars stay open late and the clubs even later (many don’t actually close at point on the weekends). The food is great too with the large migrant Turkish and Vietnamese peoples living there, so you can be sure to have something great to eat too. Berlin is truly a city like no other that everyone should visit!
Seoul, South Korea
South Korea is home to one of the coolest cities going around: Seoul. Soul has hip cafes and Korean craft beer, something you probably wouldn’t expect. There are also many hidden bars and restaurants, which makes for an interesting adventure trying to find them! Korean food is naturally amazing and the Koreans love to experiment and take things to the extreme, whether it’s very spicy or super sweet, there is always something interesting to eat. Like Japan, Korea also has a number of cultural icons and movements, in particular in Gangnam (the home of the ultra cool in Seoul). Seoul is definitely one of my favourite cities in Asia that I would love to go back to as soon as I get the chance.
Sarajevo doesn’t have the most beautiful buildings and isn’t the most pretty city that you will ever visit, but it certainly has soul and is one of the most unique places that you could ever visit. It will always be remembered as the place where the First World War started, after Franz Ferdinand (the heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire) was assassinated in the middle of the city. The city’s history also continued in an interesting fashion as the host of the 1984 Winter Olympics and furthermore experienced a long civil war during the 90s. The city under siege from all sides for 3 years. The city has a very interesting culture and you can learn more about it in the various museums and sites of interest. I would highly recommend heading to Sarajevo if you get the chance.
There is nothing better than a multicultural city and Melbourne is one of my favourite, it has a beautiful mix of old and new architecture that makes it one of the most unique cities on the earth. It really is like the New York of Australia and I really enjoy the cafe culture there and all are in fierce competition to be the best, which can only mean great coffee for everyone. The food is also amazing, with a true melting pot of cuisines, such as Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai, Italian, Greek and so much more. The large migrant population is to thank for this and makes Melbourne the city that it is today.
