JAPAN

For the last few years, Japan has remained one of the top countries to travel and visit for its fascinating tradition, cuisine, safe cities, and captivating nature.

Apart from being a technologically highly advanced country, it is also one of the safest countries to live in.

With so many amazing countries in the world, undoubtedly, Japan is a must-visit place at least once in a lifetime.

Cities like Tokyo, Osaka, and Miyajima are the top attraction of Japan. Other than the cities, there are some of the great travel spots that are worth visiting Japan and worth every penny of yours.

Here is a small list of a few great travel spots of Japan that you can think of adding on your ‘places to go list’.

Nara – A stroll around the oldest town Nara could be captivating and lend you the historical significance of that place. Here, you can have a look at Japan’s oldest temples and their reminiscence.

Mount Fuji – Mount Fuji represents Japan. It is the tallest mountain in Japan and an active volcano spot. It is a very popular tourist spot and has been a sacred spot for practicers of Shinto.

Kyoto – Kyoto is a great place to explore the culture of Japan. You can explore the Japanese market that has a massive variety of fishes.

You can visit the Yasaka Shrine, Gion with willow-lined streets, and traditional style tea houses.

If you are a fan of anime and manga characters, often caught watching manga movies on Netflix and reading anime, do not forget to stop over at the International Manga Museum.

Japan is known for its traditional tea customs and cultures. So, if you don’t experience a traditional tea ceremony while in Japan, you will miss a significant part of being in Japan.

COSTA RICA

What does the first thing that comes in your mind when you hear of Costa Rica?

Beaches, rainforest, and charming old towns?

Indeed. You must be aware of ‘Biodiversity.’

Costa Rica contains almost 5% of the world’s biodiversity, and visually it is exceptionally alluring.

Covered with mountains, lakes, beaches, dense forests, and volcanoes make Costa Rica one of the best travel destinations for them who loves to spend their holidays amidst the ‘green.’

Major attraction

Arenal Volcano National Park – Home to 16 nature reserves and is an active volcano spot. You will be entirely surrounded by nature.

(The rainy season remains long here from May till January, so not the ideal time to come and invest your money.

Instead, it’s best to come between February and April. It remains relatively dry and tends to give you ample opportunities to enjoy the view.)

Tortuguero National Park – It is one of the most important nesting sites for marine turtles in the world. This place is also home to many endangered species as well that you can learn about.

Corcovado National Park & Drake Bay – Located in Southern Costa Rica, the national park protects the mangroves, rainforest, beaches, and coral reefs.

Some places in Austria represents the beauty of this country differently.

Austria has a vibrant history and its colorful blend of old architectural buildings and Cathedrals are a significant attraction.

Austria becomes a charming destination during winter, and with the Christmas festive season, it allures tourists across the world.

So, there are tons of such places where you can go and spend your vacations.

Even some unfamiliar yet stunning places haven’t yet reached the outer world, which in a way I feel good.

Some places should remain secluded from the tourist.

Vienna – Vienna is known to everyone. The locals say tourist has overcrowded Vienna too much. It has lost its peace.

Well, I wouldn’t complain. People now want to explore places that they have never been to before. But like I always say travel responsibly and don’t pollute these beautiful places.

Other than Vienna, you can also visit Hallstatt, Durnstein, Innsbruck.
