Top 3 Places to visit?Watch
If you’re just about to finish your exams, it’s nearly time to make the biggest decision yet - where to go and spend your summer! Hint: There’s more to see than Thailand!
First take a minute to discuss how going to Thailand with all your mates would be a fantastic idea…finished? Yes, Thailand is beautiful and interesting but there's plenty of other places in the world you know! Like the 3 absolutely gorgeous places we’ve compiled for you in this nice little list below. They are all great places to relax and chill out after the panic of exam season, and they’d give the people at the Thailand tourist help desk a rest from all of you pesky students!
1. Plitvice Lakes National Park – Croatia
Newsflash: Croatia isn't just about Outlook festival. I know this comes as a surprise, but this place is absolutely gorgeous and more people need to appreciate it. The beautiful sights will soon cure any hangover, and you’ll come home with memories to treasure, rather then a fuzzy head and a lost weekend .
2. Leshan Giant Buddha – China
I know what you’re thinking; why would you ever want to build a Buddha that big, especially out of stone? Well to be honest, there’s no logical explanation for it apart from the fact it looks absolutely mint (and of course we’re all hoping it talks at some point!).
3. The Dark hedges – Northern Ireland
These ridiculously-Harry-Potter-looking trees are actually the genius idea of the Stuart Family who planted them in the eighteenth century. Originally designed to be a welcoming entrance for their visitors, 200 years later they carry a much sinister name. ‘The Dark Hedges‘ even sounds like something out of the Forbidden Forest doesn’t it? All we know is they look pretty awesome and rather menacing too, so approach with caution…Harry!
1. Iceland (any place)
2. Granada, Spain (Alhambra)
3. Daintree Rainforest, Queensland, Australia
1. Big Sur, California - this area looks absolutely incredible, plus it has a reputation for being something of a haven for artists.
2. Tangier, Morocco - I'll be heading there this summer, but I've considered living there before. The city is an incredible mix of European and Islamic cultures, plus it has big significance for me because William S. Burroughs (one of my favourite authors) spent a good amount of time there.
3. China - I can't really narrow it down, everytime I try I think like "I'd love to go to Beijing", but then another part of my mind reminds me about Hong Kong and Shanghai, and a fair few other cities. I think visiting somewhere with such a different culture to Europe would be a real experience.
i'd have to say dubai for the gold souk and jewellery trade
southern california, i plan to live there for a year in 2019 and want to own some property there as well
new york for the diamond markets
