The Single Best Travel Destination for Each Continent

Have you always wanted to travel the whole wide world? But it seems too overwhelming to realize? How about one destination for each continent at a time? Divide this big dream into bite-sized pieces and make it come true.

Asia - Bangkok, Thailand

With Asia, there are too many awesome places to visit but if we have to pick one place, Bangkok would be the one! This oriental city is so well praised and it has both very rich traditional and modern sides to offer. Thailand is a Buddhism country; Thai people are known for being friendly and smiley. But just like every touristy city, there are a lot of scammy things happening. Be sure to acknowledge the standard price to avoid being scammed and fully enjoy the super cheap awesome massages, cocktails and five-star-quality Thai cuisine. 

If you have enough time, we recommend Phi-phi island for its transparent water, white beaches and boats. This is where the Hollywood movie “The Beach” was filmed. To get there, you can take domestic plane from Bangkok to Krabi or Phuket and then take speedy boat to the island.

Africa - Sahara Desert, Morocco

Ever blown away just by seeing pictures of Sahara Desert? It’s a must on any man’s bucket list. To visit Sahara, you can stay in Merzouga as your base. Merzouga is a small Moroccan town in the Sahara Desert, near the Algerian border. Spending a night under the stars in the Sahara Desert is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you’re unlikely to experience anywhere else in the world. Don’t just do a one-day trip there! (It’s not very possible anyway.)
Argan oil, beautiful carpets, crazy artistic tiles, pottery and Moroccan leather? Do these things turn you on a bit? There are so many unique must-buys in Morocco. Especially the leather in Morocco, it’s highly unique and tanned in a medieval way that hasn't changed in centuries!

North America - New York

Sorry for the cliché. But how can a person not love New York! That’s where everything happens. To me, it’s art that makes New York the best place possible. The Met, MoMA and the Guggenheim are just the beginning of a dizzying list of art-world icons. You’ll find museums devoted to everything from fin de siècle Vienna to immigrant life in the Lower East Side, and sprawling galleries filled with Japanese sculpture, postmodern American painting, Himalayan textiles and New York City lore.

When the sun sinks slowly beyond the Hudson and luminous skyscrapers light up the night, New York transforms into one grand stage. Well-known actors take to the legendary theaters of Broadway and world-class soloists, dancers and musicians perform at venues large and small across town. Whether high culture or low, New York embraces it all!

South America - Machu Picchu, Peru

Nine tourists out of ten are visiting Peru for Machu Picchu. It literally means “ancient mountains” in Inca. It set high in the Andes Mountains in Peru, above the Urubamba River valley. Inca Empire only exited for about three hundred years. It expanded very quickly and once became the biggest empire in South America once. This “City in the Sky” was built in the 15th century and later abandoned. The exact purpose of building the city remains a mystery. And for that it attracts almost one million people to see the mysterious Machu Picchu every year!

Europe – Iceland
You probably have heard of Iceland’s natural beauty, but Iceland is not just about that. It is so culturally different. There are only three hundred thousand people in Iceland. The crime rate is extremely low, therefore cops in Iceland have the most chilled work life ever that makes everyone jealous. 

Another great reason to visit Iceland has going to be the chance of seeing aurora! To see aurora, Iceland is being debated whether it’s a good destination. Because usually if you want to have a higher chance seeing it then you have to be in the middle of nowhere. But it usually takes less than 10 days to travel the whole island. So if you happen to see aurora while you’re traveling the island then you are lucky. Sweet.

Australia – Cairns

What’s in Cairns? Great Barrier Reef it is. There are a lot of water activities to offer. Backpackers flock around there as well. One of the most exciting things in Cairns would be its rich coffee culture. And those seeking a caffeine hit will find many trendy cafes on Grafton Street and Spence Street. Not only will you get a strong cup of freshly-ground coffee, you’ll also be spoilt with the breakfast and brunch options across the city!
Visit Rusty’s market during Friday to Sunday with the locals. Go enjoy the fresh fruits, milk and seafood with more than 180 stands.

Lastly, Antarctica! It’s Earth's southernmost continent. No country owns it. And because it’s so frozen and windswept, there’s no permanent inhabitant lives there. But during warmer time (October to March), there would be up to 5000 researchers from all the round the world doing research there. Fun fact: Tinder works just fine in Antarctica. It’s just the boy to girl ratio is 9:1. 

So how to travel to Antarctica exactly? Usually people get there by boats mostly from Argentina. There are ports available from Australia and Chile as well. And what kind of boats matter a lot because you’re going to spend most of your time on the boat. Antarctica tours are mostly for educational purposes. Even to see penguins you have to see them from very far. You get to land and walk around a bit for about three to five-hour maximum, but mostly you eat, you sleep, you do everything on the boat.
It’s very expensive and not easy at all to travel there, but if you did manage to go, it sure will be a great story to tell.

So these are the places that we recommend for each continent. (While Antarctica is just fun to add on.) Did it inspire you to go travel further? Where do you want to travel next?
