Long gone are the days of Pablo Escobar, and Colombia is now one of the hottest travel destinations of 2017. This coastal city is a colorful one, and if you’re into travel photography, you’ll want to come here. The vibrant culture of Colombia shines through in this city, where you can spend the days walking the streets, laying on the beach, or partying it up Colombian style.
Ever since the U.S (kind of) opened it’s doors to Cuba, it’s become a very popular place to visit. Still, people are a bit hesitant to travel here, making it a unique destination. Going to Cuba is like traveling back in time, as all the cars are from the 60’s and perhaps the fashion is, too. Havana, like Cartagena, gives you a mix of city life and beach paradise. Spend the day admiring the colonial Spanish architecture or getting your tan on. Make sure you try the delicious Cuban food and check out the delicious Cuban people as well!
If you’re looking for a destination that’s off the beaten path, then come to Myanmar. While this destination is getting more attention than it has in the past, it’s still extremely under the radar. Myanmar, previously called Burma, is an absolutely stunning country in Southeast Asia, and really the region’s best kept secret. From amazing Buddhist temples and pagodas to stunning skylines and friendly people, come visit Yangon in 2017.
This year is the year to visit Canada, as it’s the country’s 150th birthday. To celebrate the special occasion, all of the country’s national parks are free. And, as we all know, many of this country’s best parks are in none other than British Columbia. Explore the glacial lakes and green mountainsides, and when you’ve gotten enough of the nature, partake in the festivities and check out the city life. You’ll never get bored with all Vancouver has to offer her visitors.
New Orleans, United States
If you haven’t been to New Orleans yet, then what are you waiting for?! This is the city you most definitely want to visit in 2017. Whether you book your trip during the Mardi Gras celebrations or you’d rather go another time, the city has so much to see and do. Enjoy the live jazz music, the Cajun cuisine on Bourbon Street, the haunted hotels, casinos, and so much more!
Eastern Europe hardly gets as much attention as it should. Only the most adventurous travelers know how much beauty this part of the world really has. So, if you want to get a nice taste of this region, then we recommend Sofia, Bulgaria. For history buffs, there’s a lot to get to know here, as this city has been under occupation many times by the Greeks, the Ottomans, and others in between. The city lights up at night, a gorgeous scene surrounded by the Vitosha mountains. There’s also little pockets of entertainment and alternative culture everywhere you turn. Of course, being in Eastern Europe, this city is very cheap, and it’s easy to get to other destinations by train.
The entire continent of Africa is always a cool place to travel, but in 2017, look no further than Zanzibar, Tanzania. This archipelago off the coast of East Africa is the beach paradise you’ve been dreaming of. In addition to amazing seaside resorts, this island also has a lot of history. This is one of the main stopping points of the spice trade, and there’s literally a place called the Hakuna Matata Spice Farm! This destination is pure gold!
