Travelling and exploring new cities and countries is really awesome. And you’ve got to look at the best way of getting the ultimate experience. Sometimes to do this, you have to choose somewhere a little bit different. It’s not always about picking the more popular or obvious destinations. Here are three wonderful destinations that will help you enjoy a holiday with a difference.
Considering a trip somewhere in Europe? Why not check out Bilbao in Spain’s Basque region. Northern Spain is almost like a different country to southern Spain. You might associate the host Mediterranean nation with sandy beaches and deep, blue oceans. But, Bilbao is quite a different environment. It’s more industrial and architectural than the likes of the Costa Del Sol. And it’s a perfect holiday choice for people who hate hot weather. They have the Guggenheim Museum of Art there, which is well worth a look. The old town and new town contrast wonderfully and there are a wealth of fantastic restaurants to eat at. Bilbao is the perfect destination for a city break, with enough cultural landmarks to satisfy everyone.
Most people with India travel plans would choose to go to somewhere like Delhi or Mumbai. But, you can enjoy a different experience by opting to check out the city of Agra. Why Agra you ask? Well, it is the site of the breath-taking Taj Mahal Palace. This modern Wonder of the World was built between 1632 and 1653. It’s a perfect feat of architecture and remains one of the most iconic buildings in all of India. But Agra isn’t just about the Taj Mahal. It’s also home to Agra Fort, the former home of great Mughal Dynasty, as well as world heritage site, Fatehpur Sikri. Agra has so much wonderful culture and architecture, and you can really connect to ancient Indian culture. There are ancient cities, the wonderfully ornate tombs of great leaders, and the city sits right on the Yamuna River. Agra is the hidden treasure of India, so you should check it out right now.
If you fancy going to Europe again, you should check out the crown jewel of Europe, Germany. There are so many wonderful places in Germany, but you really must experience Berlin. Sure, everyone is likely to choose this at some point, but there is just so much to experience in Berlin. It’s one of the most important cities in the world in terms of history and culture. You could visit the site of the now demolished Berlin Wall, which came down in 1989. There’s also the Brandenburg Gate, one of the most recognisable monuments in all of Germany. It’s also worth paying a visit to the Reichstag, a symbol of the German Empire, and the standout piece of Berlin’s parliamentary quarter.
When you go on holiday, you want to have the full experience. Jetting off to a distant land to lose yourself in a new culture is really great. That’s why it’s important to make the right decisions when you go away. There are certain cities and countries that everyone visits. So, why not buck the trend and enjoy a holiday with a difference by checking out these destinations.
