Top 10 Places to visit

There are so many amazing places in the world to visit and I haven’t even visited half of them. However I can advice and recommend the best places of the places that I have visited. In the ‘what to do and where?’ page my previous destinations are explained in more detail. This list will compile the ultimate top 10 places to visit, including whole countries, states, cities, bars and more. Some of the places are mentioned in the other page however this list will order them from 1 to 10, 1st being the most recommended.

  1. California, USA. – I would 100% recommend a trip to this amazing state! From San Fran to LA and all the places in-between. San Jose & Gilroy are mostly unknown but have an authentic Californian/ Mexican attitude, with beautiful friendly people, amazing views and they are close by to some must see destinations such as Santa Cruz, Napa Valley, Santa Monica and San Fransisco. Nobody will be disappointed with a visit to California and you will be drawn back again and again.

  2. New York City, USA –  New York is of course towards the top of the list, and i’m sure is the dream destination for a lot of travellers. With the sights, sounds, smells, New York offers so much. Times Square making it daylight 24 hours a day with street entertainers and a picturesque city centre day or night. Central Park lets you take a break from the bustling life of the city in both winter and summer the park has some of the best views of the city you can get!
    Not forgetting the NYC pizza, id recommend a visit to ‘prontos pizza’ which is right next door to ground zero, a lovely area where you can learn a lot about the New York history and attitude.

  3. Ubud, Bali, Indonesia – With Bali being one of the top visited destinations in South East Asia, Ubud was an amazing trip. With the sacred monkey forest, where you can become a Monkeys climbing frame, to peaceful temples and beautiful art galleries. Ubud is the centre of arts and crafts, it has many art galleries and traditional crafts, it is definitely one of the best places to be immersed into the Balinese culture.

  4. Elephant Sanctuary, Chiang Mai Thailand –  The Elephant Sanctuary was one of the most memorable experiences in Asia. I opted for the overnight stay in the jungle in a traditional Karen village. The time spent with the Elephants was nothing less that incredible, washing them in the river and having a mud bath was so fun. The accommodation was not luxury at all, but the experience of sleeping basically in the open with camp fires, rice moonshine, traditional food and hilarious hosts, it will leave you with the most unforgettable memories. I would 100% recommend this for anyone who loves nature and animals.

  5. Mount Batur, Bali Indonesia – Mount Batur is an active volcano in the north of Bali, I hired a driver who took me there, where we viewed the rice fields on the way. The view of the Volcano was unreal, it was like nothing I have ever seen before. If you visit, make sure you go to the natural hot springs which overlooks the lake and the mountains. I am actually planning to return here to climb the Volcano on a sunrise trek which I have supplied a link for.

  6. Dubai, UAE – The cleanest city I have ever visited. I came here with a prejudice with various media stories displaying the middle east and UAE are extremely strict and unfriendly, however what I experienced was the complete oposite. It is a beautiful modern city with amazing architecture. There are so much activities to do here! The malls are out of this world and you can spend a full day just in awe of how big they are and how much they are able to fit into them. Also the must- do in Dubai is the desert safari, which takes you in a 4/4 speeding up and down the dunes, before sand surfing and enjoying a barbecue of traditional Arabic foods. Its a perfect place to see the Arabic culture.

  7. Changi Airport, Singapore –  It may seem strange to put an airport in the top 10 places to visit however you need to see it for yourselves. CNN did a video just showcasing the different luxuries and the various comforts that are offered at Changi airport. I would try to list them all myself but this video describes it perfectly.

  8. Philadelphia, USA – Philly is definitely an underrated city in USA, it has history (being the original capitol city of America), architecture unlike any other city in the country and the great Philly cheese- steak! The rocky statue and all the museums and thousands of shops this city has enough to do for at least 3 to 4 days. It is also cheaper than NYC but still has a lot of the same things to offer.

  9. Bangkok, Thailand – Bangkok is the craziest city in this top 10 list by far. It is similar to New York, with an Asian twist. Its super busy, has the biggest markets which run all day and night, it also has a lovely park which is great to have an afternoon lizard spotting and chilling out by the lake. My favourite thing in Bangkok is the food! Street food on every corner and it costs pennies, its fresh and delicious. You will never go bored or hungry in this wacky but amazing city! it is definitely worth the experience of visiting this culturally diverse place.

  10. Washington DC, USA –  The capital of USA, this city is a bucket list for many travellers. The Smithsonian museums stretching out for literally miles and every one being completely free of charge, you can learn about every part of American history. It also has hundreds of world famous monuments such as the Whitehouse, Lincoln, Capitol buildings and the Supreme courts. Be warned however, you will walk for miles on this trip so make sure you wear some comfy shoes, like soft running trainers, but the walking is well worth it.
