Here are the 7 best places to travel in 2021.
1. Nusa Tenggara in Indonesia
When most people visit Indonesia, their first stop is usually Bali. But if you want to have the best travel experience in Indonesia, don’t let your trip end at Bali. Instead, proceed east until you reach Nusa Tenggara, one of the most beautiful hidden gems in Indonesia. This archipelago has some of the world’s finest diving scenes. Its beaches are not only beautiful but also less crowded compared to those in Bali.
2. The Greek Islands
The Greek Islands are the newest getaway destination for passionate travelers. Fly directly into Santorini and enjoy Oia’s magnificent white and blue architecture along with the warm hospitality of the natives. Ensure you book a quality family vacation rental overlooking the water to experience breathtaking sunset views. This magical town will be more accessible in 2021 thanks to the infrastructural and road improvement projects that the Santorini Council is implementing this year.
If you’re looking for a place that’ll get you up close with nature, then Rwanda should be on your bucket list. The country is popular for gorilla tourism.
