Summer is here and it is the best time to have a break, go out and enjoy a relaxing vacation.
Consider this Top 10 Best Summer Destinations Around the World when you start planning for your summer getaway this 2012.
Just the breathtaking view of the Aegan Sea is more than enough reason to go to Santorini for summer. There are a lot of things that you can do in Greece like visit Oia which is one of the most beautiful villages in the island where you can see a panoramic view of the Aegan Sea and enjoy the beautiful white architectures. They also say that the best place to watch the sunset is in the Kastro Walls where you can enjoy a drink in one of the cafes in the caldera as you watch the beautiful colors of the sunset. Summer in Greece will not be complete without taking a dip at the Red Beach and Vlichada, which are just two of the best beaches in the island.
Orlando is considered as the theme park capital of the world so it is the perfect family destination. Kids and adult alike will enjoy Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, and more and make sure that you at least allocate one whole day per theme park to enjoy everything that it has to offer.
Go back in time and relive history as you visit many historical places in Rome like the Coloseum, the Pantheon, Roman Forum, Piazza di Spagna, Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel and throw a coin and make your wish come true in the beautiful Trevi Fountain.
Boracay is the island paradise in the Philippines. It is here where you can enjoy crystal clear water and the finest white sand. Aside from the beautiful beach, there are a lot of other cool activities that you can enjoy in Boracay like ATV riding, Helmet Diving, Parasailing, Cliff Diving and more. It is also a premiere party place with bars and different restaurants surrounding the island.
Morocco, the hazy spit of land across the Strait of Gibraltar, is 13km and worlds away from Europe. The nation contains unparalleled raw beauty, with lush valleys, enormous desert dunes, ancient imperial cities, and North Africa’s highest mountains. While you may reach Morocco today by high-speed ferry rather than brigantine ship, your path has been well worn by years of cultural exchange. Arab, African, and European influences come together gracefully in modern Morocco.
Barcelona and Madrid
Barcelona and Madrid have a longstanding rivalry. Whether it’s a question of Castilian vs. Catalan, Villanueva vs. Gaudí, or Real Madrid vs. FC Barcelona, we just couldn’t choose between Spain’s two largest cities. Luckily, we don’t have to, and neither do travelers. Though decidedly different, both cities have their fair share of clubs open until 6am, scrumptious tapas, and the best student discounts—in fact, the only thing you won’t find is a clear winner in this Iberian in-fight.
Intemperance? Gluttony? Sex addiction? Ballet? Whatever your vice, generations of the similarly inclined have indulged it in Paris before you. Paris is a shrine, an advertising slogan, or a vague longing for (sexual, political, artistic) liberation before it is anything so mundane as the hometown of millions of people. Steeped in history and allusions right down to its sewers, Paris weaves a spell in stone and sunlight. With the euro weaker than it’s been in years, travel in the City of Light, though still expensive, is cheaper than it was a year ago. We guess it’s true what they say: “One man’s debt crisis is another man’s favorable exchange rate.
If you’re looking for a place to travel this year, just sit right there—I’m going to tell you a little story about a city called “fresh air”: Buenos Aires. You might not meet Will Smith, but with Buenos Aires becoming one of the most popular cities for study abroad in Latin America, you’re bound to meet young people from every corner of the world, not to mention locals who grill until midnight and regard a night out that ends at 4am as a weak attempt.
