I’ve researched which countries will be most affected by a lack of tourism and how to best help.
Guest contributor and world traveler Jess Signet writes about travel scams that are easy to come by and easy to fall for. Here’s some helpful tips on how to avoid them and what to look out for.
Thailand is without a doubt one of the most visited countries in Asia and it’s continually growing in popularity. Backpackers love it as a cheap destination rich in beautiful beaches, delicious food and an exciting nightlife. It also doesn’t hurt that Thai people have been noted as the friendliest in the world.
I owe some of my most treasured memories to travel. Theres a reason I’m so obsessed with seeing the world, and I smile every time I look back at these moments in particular. I was most likely thinking something along the lines of “I love my life” at the time.
Whilst Istanbul in itself is teeming with cultural, historic and interesting attractions, the rest of Turkey has much to offer international visitors. From easy day tours to overnight or weekend stays, there is an option for all tastes close by. This is a great way to utilise ones time, whilst adding depth to a prolonged holiday in Istanbul.
Fun fact: Istanbul is the only city in the world that straddles two continents; Europe and Asia. And with ancient history to rival the likes of Rome, world-class attractions and an ambient atmosphere, it’s hardly a surprise that it’s fast becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.
Europe may not be large in size compared to other continents across the world, but it definitely is enormous in what it offers for travelers. If you have months of time to travel through Europe, then deciding where to go might not be too big of an issue. But if you’re one of the majority of us with a two or – if you’re lucky – three week vacation period, it can be tricky to decide where to visit. Here, I’ve tried to make that decision a little bit easier (but seriously, good luck!)
Taking the leap of faith to start traveling on your own can be quite daunting, especially when heading to a foreign country for the first time. I can say from experience that the environment you surround yourself in can make or break a trip, especially when you don’t have someone to fall back on during a tough time. So to help you decide where to go on your first solo ‘vacay’, here’s a list of some of the friendliest countries in the world to make sure it’s a good one!
Contiki tours are such a popular way to travel for most young Australians, especially when venturing to Europe. I have now been on two separate Contiki tours, one in Europe in 2013 and one in Mexico in 2014. Whilst they are fun ways to get around, I think it’s good to know about every aspect of the tour to see if it’s right for you.
