In need of a getaway that will deliver exciting excursions, great food, and photo ops not found anywhere else? Want to avoid lines, the crowds, and explore places off the beaten path? These 3 destinations to visit for 2018 are exactly what the doctor ordered.
The Island of the Gods offers great beaches, countless waves for surfing and wonderful natural sites to visit and explore. Bali is a rare place that is both deeply spiritual and fun.
Ubud is the best place in Bali to break out of the tourist mode and get off the beaten path, although far from undiscovered. Here you can explore Hindu temples and watch monkeys frolic in the Ubud Monkey Forest. If the beach scene is more your thing, you can dig your toes into the pink sands of Lombok Island.
2. The Balkans
Traverse the cobblestone streets of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Travel back in time in Romania with a visit to a medieval castle. Trek your way through the mountains of Albania. If you are in search of adventure and architectural wonders without the throngs of tourists, the Balkans should be at the top of your list.
Learn to surf in Bocas Del Toro, take a walk through Casco Viejo, taste world-class coffee, try your hand at big-game fishing, relax on a secluded beach, or explore in a rainforest. Panama is about discovery, a perpetual endless summer, and can be as wild as you want it to be.
