Countries you must see before dying

10 Dec Countries you must see before dying

Tropical beach, Andaman Sea, ThailandHave you ever thought about all those places you should know before dying? There are many countries and cities over the world, and sometimes it is difficult to choose where to travel.

Here we are going to recommend you five countries that are a must because of their culture, tradition, and touristic attractions. Take note.

1 – Egypt:  King Tut, The Pyramids, The Valley of the Kings, Luxor… we can list many monuments you must see. But it’s not just about the history andculture, it’s about the people too. Egyptians are some of the kindest and most generous people on the planet. They will welcome you into their homes in a second and even if they have almost nothing, they will share it with you.

2 – China: Maybe China is not the first country you may think when planning some holidays. But that is a mistake.  Even if you could only afford 7 to 10 days, an itinerary that takes in Beijing, Xian, a Yangtze River Cruise and Shanghai will be a great introduction. Their traditions and cities will conquer you. If you just want to get the most you can, plan a visit Guilin. Guilins landscape is amazing and totally unique. It can’t necessarily be called Mountainous as such, but the peaks that do rise, rise almost vertically up into the mist.

3 – Jordan. If you plan your Jordan adventure adding Egypt, it will be an unforgettable trip. Amman is a great city full of atmosphere, Petra is marvellous, but surely you cannot get back home without enjoying in the Dead Sea, the only ocean in the world with so much salt in it that will let you float.

4 – Hong Kong. Although there is much more to Hong Kong than just shopping, if you do love to shop, then Hong Kong is the place for you. But go over that, there are a lot more things to do in Hong Kong too. Although it it one of the most modern cities of the world, you can find the most ancient traditions in every corner. Don’t forget to take a trip to Victoria Peak and enjoy the stunning view.

5 – Thailand. Thailand suffers a little from it’s reputation of being a very hedonistic destination and while it is true that the is a very wild side to Thailand (especially certain areas of Bangkok, Phucket etc) there is also an amazing culture to immerse yourself in.

There really is everything there, adventure, culture and even for the not faint hearted, a place about 1 hour north of Thailand where you can go in, yes go in, with real live tigers. No cages, no chains, just you and around a dozen tigers. For me it was a thrill of a lifetime and without doubt it is just one of the many reasons that Thailand is in my top 5 of places you need to visit in the world
