Top 10’s

Our ‘Top 10 lists’ are not always exactly ten…. but certainly varies between 1 and 100. This does not rule out a possible list of the “Top 1,000 destinations to visit before you die”.
We truly work our grey matter to the bone to come up with the most scientific ranking of our lists. However, once the grey matter is stuck (or starts to melt down), we just randomly pull together the lists, so never question (or sue us) if you don’t agree with our rankings, as we take no responsibility whatsoever. For our “50 Incredible Destinations” list, click “TOP SPOTS” in the Main Menu, or go to this URL:

9 Best Traveller Experiences in MOROCCO

July 4, 2017

Morocco is famous for its food, souks, ancient fortified citadels and kasbahs, beaches, mountains, and its Berber people. We start this journey at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains and continue along the rugged terrains and valleys to the ancient ksar of Aït Benhaddou. We follow the former caravan route through the Sahara Desert to the bustle of the old, colourful souks of Marrakech, and then head west to the cool winds of the Atlantic Ocean. From the wide beaches and whitewashed fortified walls of Essaouira, we go past the fortress built by Vasco da Gama’s brother-in-law in the town [MORE...]

10 Cool Excitements in LAPLAND

July 4, 2017

Also known as Sápmi, Lapland includes the Nordic regions of Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Russia. It has traditionally been inhabited by the Sami people, known in English as “Lapps” or “Laplanders”. Thinking about Lapland, the word itself may cast some images of colourful Laplanders, known as the Sámi peoples, roaming reindeer, the home of Santa Claus, the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), and the midnight sun. But, there is a lot more to Lapland than you ever imagined. Sadly, Lapland is not what it used to be. Nowadays, the traditional Sámi people constitute only a small minority [MORE...]

10 Great Ruins of LATIN AMERICA

August 4, 2016

Known as “pyramids”, and sometimes as “temples”, or “temples atop pyramids”, or just “structures”, Latin America is strewn with many impressive ruins with some city foundations dating as far back as the 4th century B.C. Most were built by the Aztecs (such as Mexico’s Teotihuacan), the Incas (such as Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu in Peru), the Maya people (such as Palenque, Tikal, and Copán), or built by the mother of them all, the Olmecs. Some visitors will literally walk around with a flashlight and magnifying glass to decipher the ancient reliefs and inscriptions such [MORE...]

9 Best Traveller Experiences in southern BOLIVIA

July 4, 2016

Salar de Uyuni in southwestern Bolivia is the world’s largest salt flats measuring more than 10,500 square km. Located at an altitude of 3,656 m above sea level in the Daniel Campos Province, this region is remote, unique, and inhospitable. The area is known for its scenery with dormant volcanoes, turquoise lakes, weird rock formations, and its volcanic active areas with fierce fumaroles and boiling mud pots. While the salar is rather void of any noticeable life other than the odd tourist Landrover and the giant cacti on Isla del Pescado and Isla Incahuasi, the area off the salar has [MORE...]

9 Best off-the-beaten paths in CENTRAL ASIA

September 20, 2014

Central Asia, and for now we are talking about Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan, is an intrepid traveller’s playground. Here are so many off the beaten path destinations – well, wait, almost all of Central Asia is off the beaten path. Once you are out of the cities, everything is rugged and an adventurer’s heaven. Among the most interesting remote areas are in Afghanistan and Tajikistan. Travel in Afghanistan is not particularly safe and great care should be taken in planning the best routes. Currently, the northeast along the border with [MORE...]

10 Best ancient ruins of the MIDDLE EAST

September 3, 2014

There are many reasons to travel all over the Middle East (and arguably many reasons not to travel to the Middle East at all), though one of the strongest arguments in favour of travel is to explore the many ancient ruins. With a long history, the Middle East boasts some of the most incredible remnants of ancient civilisations. However, with war constantly raging at various burning points, one can only wonder how long these ruins will still be standing. Among the best ruins are those in Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, and Turkey. Palmyra, the ancient city in Syria, recently suffered damage [MORE...]
