The 15 Countries To Visit Sooner Rather Than Later

Traveling is something we all love, obviously if your reading this, and the beauty of adventure for some is finding new and exciting places to visit. Well these next few destinations are growing with popularity more and more every year and you best visit before they’re over run with tourists and that little bit less exciting.

  1. Croatia

    Ok so Croatia is pretty popular already, with places like Dubrovnik and Split some of the most visited places in Europe. I had to add it to the list however, because Croatia is currently using their own currency (Croatian Kuna) meaning it is still relatively cheap compared to other European countries. But it won’t be for long. Croatia joined the European Union in mid-2013 and is set to change their currency to the Euro by no later than 2019 (but they can apply from 2016). So get there quick!

  2. Morocco

    Morocco is growing in popularity year after year, but most seem to just visit the cultural hub of Marrakech and that is all but beyond that beautiful city is even more beauty such as rugged mountains, stunning seaside resorts, a city where every building is blue and of course, beautiful orange-red sand dunes. Take a look at the top 10 places to visit in Morocco.

  3. Mauritius

    Mauritius is a stunning island nation off the east coast of Africa. Recently picking up quite a lot of attention by beach lovers, jump on board before the rest of the world catches on. Stunning coastal village Grand Baie was voted as one of the best places to visit in all of Africa by Trip Advisor.

  4. Malta

    One of the very overlooked countries in Europe sitting in the Mediterranean with some of the most friendly locals you can find. Find stunning small cities, rugged cliff coastlines and some of the most beautiful swimming spots. And an added bonus is that it’s still pretty cheap too.

  5. Tanzania

    Go on a safari to see the Big 5, climb Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest mountain in Africa), explore Ngorongoro crater and the abundance of national parks found in Tanzania before heading to Zanzibar for some relaxation on some of the worlds most beautiful beaches. Tanzania has it all.

  6. The Philippines

    Beautiful resorts around Boracay (pictured) will keep beach lovers happy, or explore the capital of Manila, go hiking in the lush forests, explore stunning lagoons, caves and waterfalls or even visit stunning rice terraces. This country is all about nature and adventure.

  7. Bolivia

    This is the cheapest place to visit in South America and probably the more underrated. With the Amazon rainforest, the Atacama desert, part of the Andes Mountains and famous sights such as Salar de Uyuni salt flat, the high altitude city of La Paz and Lake Titicaca you could never get bored.

  8. Montenegro

    The tiny, often forgotten country of Montenegro is absolutely stunning, and cheap! Russians flee to the party city of Budva, but the rest of the world is yet to discover this gem. Kotor (pictured) is just breathtaking.

  9. Nicaragua

    Think lush rainforests, volcanoes and stunning beaches. It’s cheap and not as touristy as nearby Costa Rica, but just as charming.

  10. Iceland

    In 2015, Iceland was one of the new hot spots to travel to so get in quick before tourism ruins the beautiful natural landscapes of this country. It is expensive once you are there but you can snap up some bargains with flights especially from the UK.

    If flying between North America and Europe, fly with Iceland Air as they offer a free stopover in Iceland for up to seven nights on the way there or back, a pretty great deal if you ask me.

  11. Madagascar

    Madagascar has some of the most unique variety of flora and fauna on earth. We’ve all seen the movies, and who doesn’t want to see a Lemur? Just look at this photo! Simply stunning. And thanks to the growing airline industry it is now easier than ever to get there.

  12. Bosnia & Herzegovina

    100% the most underrated country in Europe. Stunning landscapes, waterfalls and cute little towns dotted throughout. Head there before they catch on at how amazing they are and the currency gets stronger, because right now it’s one of the cheapest places to travel in Europe.

  13. Seychelles

    Forget the Maldives or Bora Bora, the new luxurious getaway is Seychelles. Just of the coast of Africa, every turn is postcard worthy.

  14. Chile

    Stunning mountains, deserts and alpacas. What more could you want? This country lines the west coast of South America and like Bolivia, is one of the lesser explored parts of South America, but it shouldn’t be.

  15. Marshall Islands

    One of the world’s best kept secrets. With 29 atolls and five isolated islands, this country is located halfway between Australia and Hawaii. One for the reef lovers, as the snorkelling and diving is exceptional here (you can even dive around a helicopter wreck not far from shore, pictured) and of course, the beaches are just picturesque.
