1. London, United Kingdom

   London is the perfect destination for experienced and novice travelers alike. The common language and prevalent public transportation make it a great city to explore. The Tower Bridge, Big Ben, and the classic red phone booths are a must see, but don’t miss out on what the rest of the amazing city has to offer.  London’s diversity is also evident in their wide range of delicious cuisine.

2.  Tokyo, Japan

   Tokyo is one of the most vibrant cities in the world.  To fully experience Tokyo’s uniqueness, explore the Harajuku neighborhood. In this eccentric zone you can ride through the streets in go-karts dressed as Mario Kart characters, pet cats at the numerous cat cafes, and eat at dozens of themed restaurants. There are countless hotels in this city, but while in Tokyo you should stay in the types of hotels unique to Japanese culture. A capsule hotel comes equipped with multiple pods that include a bed, TV, and shelves stacked on top of each other for all your belongings. Although maybe not for the claustrophobic, capsule hotels are a fun alternative to staying in more traditional hotels. 

3. Machu Picchu, Peru

   Machu Picchu is one of the top bucket list destinations for everybody. Its secluded location often makes the trek to Machu Picchu a strenuous journey.  You can walk the popular 4 day hike along the Inca Trail or you can take a 4 hour train ride to Machu Picchu from Cusco, Peru. Interestingly enough, there is only one hotel in Machu Picchu - the Belmond Sanctuary. You can enjoy massages at their spa or relax at their garden pool that overlooks Machu Picchu.  The Belmond Hotel rates start at $851 per night, but don’t worry. There are still plenty of budget friendly hotels in the nearby city of Aguas Calientes.

4. Cinque Terre, Italy

   The beautiful Cinque Terre leaves everybody in wonderment. It’s a series of 5 centuries-old seaside towns located in the Italian Riviera. Each of the 5 towns is filled with colorful homes, winding streets, and vineyards that cling to steep cliffs. The most popular activity while you’re here is to complete the Sentiero Azzurro hike that links the 5 towns together. It might seem like a trek to hike through 5 cities, but luckily it isn’t too strenuous.  Most people are easily be able to complete it. After your hike, enjoy the region’s famous and delicious seafood options.  

5. Iceland

   The beauty of Iceland is incomparable, but the country truly shines when you leave its capital city, Reykjavik. One cannot go to Iceland without swimming and relaxing in its most popular attraction, the famous Blue Lagoon. The minerals in the water at the lagoon are extremely beneficial for the skin. While you’re here you can stay at the Icelandic oasis, the Silica Hotel. Guests at this hotel have complimentary access to both the Silica Lagoon and Blue Lagoon.

6. The Matterhorn, Zermatt, Switzerland

   The charming town of Zermatt is at the base of the Matterhorn mountain and can only be reached by train. Even though the entire town is car-free, it’s extremely walkable. The easiest and most time-efficient way to get a closer look at the Matterhorn is to take a train up one of the nearby mountain ranges. Good news for those that enjoy snow activities, the mountains near Zermatt are great for skiing and snowboarding nearly all year long. Fun Fact: Disneyland designed their Matterhorn ride after this mountain in Switzerland!

7. San Francisco, CA, USA

  As a Bay Area native, I may be biased, but San Francisco is one of the most enchanting and interesting cities in the world. Start off your trip by walking across the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. The walk is easy and most people can finish in 45 minutes - round trip. Then, make your way to Fisherman’s Wharf to treat yourself to clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl from Boudin or a savory chocolate sundae from Ghirardelli.



8.The Great Wall of China, Beijing

   The Great Wall of China is one of the 7 wonders of the world, and it isn’t difficult to see why. China began building the Great Wall over 2,300 years ago so it’s no surprise that some sections of the wall have not been restored to modern standards. Children, seniors, and travellers with disabilities should probably stick to the Badaling and Mutianyu sections of the Wall. As these sections are the most accessible and least physically demanding. Advanced hikers should consider visiting the unrestored and most beautiful section of the wall, Jiankou.

9. Yosemite, CA, USA

   Known for its outdoor recreation, Yosemite has countless things to do. You can hike on the numerous beginner or advanced hiking trails, enjoy a breathtaking photography tour, or explore the park’s natural wonders. Camping is allowed in the park, but only at the designated campsites with a reservation. If camping isn’t your thing, you can stay at the Majestic Yosemite Hotel. This hotel is known for its grandeur architecture, and stellar views that highlight its natural surroundings.

10. Chefchaaouen, Morocco

   Located in the mountains of Morocco, Chefchaouen is one of the most captivating towns in the entire country. This mountainous town is completely washed in blue, with every building is painted with a different shade. Stepping into Chefchaouen feels like you are stepping into another world, and although it’s become increasingly popular for tourists, it still holds on to its authenticity.
