Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
In the last few years, Ethiopia’s profile has risen quite a bit. Thanks to the introduction of the e-visa in 2017, tourism increased by just under 50%. Additionally, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed gained the world’s attention by being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019.
While the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ethiopia are a huge draw for tourists, the addition of green spaces and an amazing museum complex has increased the popularity of this destination even more.
If you are searching for a unique place to visit, Ethiopia should be on your list.
When it comes to venturing to lands unknown, there’s no question that Antarctica is at the top of many people’s bucket lists.
You may wonder, what is it that makes the seventh continent so appealing? Well, to name a few things, you have the beautiful white desert, snowy peaks, vibrant blue waters, exotic wildlife, and so much more. Venturing to this far-off land is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This Scandinavian country offers visitors an appealing “cabin culture,” with approximately 50% of the population accessing the hytte of some type. The entire area offers spectacular natural settings and, even if you don’t want the traditional back-to-basics experience (i.e., no power, water from a well, and outdoor toilets), you can check out some of the newer “smart” additions to the country.
You can find all types of accommodations in Norway, from “birdboxes” at the top of mountains to treehouses that peek out over fjords; you can enjoy nature and luxury – something you won’t find in many other areas in the world.
Are you ready to push your travel limits? If so, why not visit one of the world’s most unique and remote biospheres – the Angolan section of Okavango Delta, which is on the UNESCO list.
Even though it begins and ends in Botswana, which brings in about eight times the visitors of Angola, seeing it from this perspective is something that isn’t what most people experience. You can take four-by-four game drives, boat safaris, and amazing helicopter tours while in the area.
If you are looking for a unique destination that isn’t crowded with tourists, this may be a great place.
Even though it may still seem like you are rolling the dice planning a vacation this year (after all, you never know what’s going to happen), Dubai is a safer bet than many other destinations. Considered the “glitziest” of all the United Arab Emirates, today, the area is welcoming travelers from across the globe. Also, the area is utilizing thorough safety checks and recommended protocols, which means you can feel confident that you will remain healthy and well during your visit.
Along with all the typical Dubai attractions, the Museum of the Future is also open; a calligraphy adorned façade and new landmark city are known for the impressive architecture and true “wow” factor that Dubai is known and loved for.
