The world is a big place for holiday goers, with amazing beaches, islands, mountains, forests and deserts making for natural wonders that will leave you dumbstruck. While urban holidays have become a thing for a lot of people (most travellers baptise in Eurotrips and Dubai sojourns), camping out in the lap of nature is still popular with families and solo travellers looking for rest and rejuvenation. Here is a list of some of the most exotic places to holiday in the world:
1. Uganda Safari
Uganda is not a very popular tourist destination, but being home to the famous mountain gorillas, the country offers a unique experience for the international travellers. The country is your quintessential African province, with naturally rolling hills broken by huge lakes, and tropical forest cover hiding some of the most loved animals in the world. Wildlife tours in Uganda are especially popular with tourists who make it to the country, with bird watchers also in for a treat. Gorilla trekking in Uganda is by far the most important of all wildlife tours, and watching these primates in their natural habitat is once-in-a-lifetime experience. And the habitat itself is scenic by any standards, with amazing waterfalls and mountains adding value to the tours.
Perhaps the most amazing of the Canary Islands, this island has been declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. The place has loads to offer to tourists. There are plenty of long, sandy beaches here that are known for being deserted for most part of the year. You are in for quite a shock if you see a vulture here because the island is one of the two last surviving places where the Canarian vulture is found. The trade winds and the storied Atlantic winter swell makes the island’s many beaches great for surfers. The island became deserted in the 60s, but since the rise of tourism, it has started growing again. The 819 metres Cardon and the attractive coast line are not something you will forget if you visit the island
3. French Polynesia
The Pacific islands are located in the middle of nowhere between the American state of California and Australia. You will find the most exotic beaches and bays in the islands of this archipelago, that range from volcanic islands with rugged peaks to low lying islands. The most famous islands are the Bora Bora that are part of the Society Islands. The main island is completely surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef, giving the island an otherworldly look. The abundance of coconut trees almost plays into the familiar stereotype for these islands, but the abundance of aqua resorts that exude luxury will quickly establish the islands as being extraordinarily tourist friendly. The extinct volcanoes at the center of the island are also a great attraction.
Whether it is the islands of Pacific/Atlantic, the northernmost cities of the Arctic or the Uganda adventures of Africa, one has to make sure to visit at least some of the places on this list in their lives for stories to tell their children. So pack your bags and leave now on your sojourn.
