When it comes to seeing the world, due to its vastness you sometimes have to be quite selective about where you choose to visit and when. Unless you have won the lottery, you may find your budget just will not quite cover a complete round the world trip, and like the majority of people, you are limited to one or two holidays a year. To aid this essential selectiveness a lot of travel lovers decide to create a list of all the places they need and wish to visit before they die – not too cheery but true. Should you decide to follow in their footsteps, here are some must-see destinations that are imperative for the completion of any bucket list.
Especially if you are located in Europe, the United Kingdom can tend to be forgotten about when it comes to your top places to visit. However, the culture and activities that London has to offer should not be underestimated. Depending on your budget and length of your stay – there are plenty of accommodation options. You have the luxury of the Ritz, the cheap and cheerful Travel Lodge, and for a longer stay you can check out londonservicedapartments.co.uk short letting apartments or similar. As for things to do: The notorious Oxford Street and liveliness of the West End will be enough to max out your daily to-do list, on top of the stunning landmarks that make up London’s infamous skyline – you’re sure to have an Instagram feed to die for. You may find you never want to leave.
Another holiday destination that tends to be forgotten about when compared to the big shots like New York and Paris. If not only for the rich history, you will want to travel to Berlin for the amazing Museum Island and the very current and lively art scene that has grown in popularity over the past couple of years. Whether you want to see the entire city whilst eating dinner in a revolving restaurant at the top of the Fernsehturm TV Tower, or you want to close your eyes and relax to the classic music by Berlin’s Philharmonic, you will find many activities in Berlin that encompass your travel style and needs. You can also see the city and all of its historical monuments by a variety of tours available most days. You can choose between a bike, walking, bus or boat tour – whichever best suits you.
Known as the happy capital, Copenhagen has been added to everyone’s bucket lists over the last couple of years as the wonders the city has to offer have become more widely known. Home to The Little Mermaid and a boastful jazz scene, whilst taking a walking tour of the city that has burnt down an amazing four times, you will be able to see why it regularly tops the charts as one of the happiest places in the world. The food is also raved about, with five star restaurants aplenty, and cafes galore (yes, that was a Little Mermaid reference) you’ll be drowning in places to go and experiences to be had.
Remember to always do your research before travelling to ensure you can make the most of your destination and your time there.
