With 2017 officially behind us, the new year is poised to be another great one in terms of travel. Whether you are a seasoned traveler or a brand new one, the new year stands as a great time to visit (or revisit) a bucket list location.
We previously explored several great travel destinations for 2018, and now, here are three more great potential choices as you plan your next trip.
Though Chile is one of the most slender countries in the world, it contains quite a lot to behold — perhaps too much for one visit alone. The modest country, which spans just 150 miles across at its widest point, is home to the scenic slopes and peaks of the Andes, the snow-capped volcanoes at Patagonia, and the beautifully peculiar sculptures of Easter Island, among many other breathtaking sights. There is also a thriving and budget-friendly food and wine scene, for those looking to indulge in the country’s unique local tastes.
Greece is sure to provide an unforgettable travel experience thanks to its blend of ancient history, passionate music and food scenes, and variety of natural wonders and sights. The latter is arguably the country’s biggest drawing point, with popular attractions including the Acropolis, the Ancient Delphi, and the Parthenon. First time visitors may find themselves overwhelmed as far as where to start, and in many ways, this notion is far from a bad thing. Still though, make sure you plan accordingly so you do not miss out on any of the country’s key experiences.
Like Chile, Scotland is a relatively small country that still manages to provide visitors with countless memorable experiences, from stunning landscapes and wildlife to “hospitable, down-to-earth” people. Key visiting locations include Isle of the Skye, Loch Lomond, and Edinburgh, though the must-visits go far beyond these spots alone. Glasgow and Aberdeen also provide a variety of big-city experiences and sights, including the Glasgow Art Museum and St. Machar’s Cathedral.
