Our planet is full of places in the deepest corners of the most forgotten regions of this world that will fill your spirit with all and leave you in wonder. With the world slowly opening back up, traveling has become more and more accessible over the past few years. Thanks to the internet and so are finding fascinating destinations to experience. 

In this article, I will guide you through the most incredible travel destinations you have to see to believe. 

#1 Norway

Number one is Norway. Hands down, it is the most beautiful destination you could ever experience. Norway is a Scandinavian country encompassing vast mountains, glaciers, and deep coastal fjords. I recommend going in early summer when the days are long and warm while the nights are cool and short. If you go far enough north, the sun doesn’t set at all. And you can experience the phenomenon known as the midnight sun. In Norway, you can do everything from climate glaciers to windsurfing on the coast, along with white water kayaking and back-breaking downhill cycling. And, of course, a road trip for days.

#2 Bali

Number two is Bali. Now I know you’re thinking everyone and their dogs on Instagram have been to Bali, taken photos, and made videos there, but there’s a good reason for that. Bali is truly a place to find yourself. There’s an energy unlike anywhere else that I’ve ever been in the world. Bali is an Indonesian island known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches, and color reefs. One of the coolest things is that you can stay in a luxury villa for just about $20 per night in Bali. My number one thing to do in Bali is rent a motorbike and explore the unknown areas and the surrounding islands.

#3 The Maldives 

If you want to get lost at sea in the best possible way, you need to head to the Maldives. The Maldives is a tropical nation in the Indian ocean comprising 26 ring-shaped atolls made up of more than 1000 coral islands. It’s known for its beaches, blue lagoons, and extensive reefs. When you go to the Maldives, you have two options for places to stay. First, you pay a ton of money to stay in a nice all-inclusive resort. The second, you travel with some friends, hire a surf boat, and just island hop. There’s nothing in the whole world like living on a boat in the middle of the Indian ocean. Early September is a good time to visit, the weather is beautiful, and the surf is just amazing. And if you’re not into surfing, you can always island-hop and hang out with some locals. Or go free diving on one of the many reefs, or even find your own deserted island all to yourself. 

Important tip: Before going to the Maldives, make sure you’ve confirmed your stay. Staying on these islands isn’t wallet-friendly. Therefore, RatePunk is the tool to help you catch a great deal. Go on your favorite booking site, choose a preferred resort, and let RatePunk extension show you the lowest price for that hotel. Be confident that you’re getting the best deal. See? This is how you don’t end up broke on your vacation. 

#4 Japan 

Number four is definitely Japan. It's an island nation in the pacific ocean with dense cities, mountainous national parks, and thousands of shrines and temples. The best way to get around is by bullet train, which is never late or hop on a quick flight. You can't simply miss going to the food market when you come to Japan. The food has to be hands down the most interesting part of coming to Japan. There is some food that you would never imagine eating. While Tokyo is a fantastic city, give it a shot to see the countryside. For example, go all the way south to Zamami island, which is a relatively unknown spot to westerners. It is home to world-class diving and some of Earth's most remote untouched beaches. 

#5 Bonaire

Bonaire is a charming dutch island located 50 miles north of Venezuela. It is a part of the ABC islands chain next to Aruba and Curacao. Far far below the hurricane bell, Bonaire has perfect weather almost year-round. The number one thing to do in Bonaire is scuba diving. You can scuba during the day or for daring scuba diving at night. This is a bucket list thing right here. Night scuba diving is one of the most terrifying exhilarating experiences you’d ever have. Bonaire is home to some of the clearest blue waters on the planet and has some of the most lively reefs. You can free dive in the freshwater limestone cave network that runs below the island. Also, drive to the pink salt pans in the south, and hop on a water taxi to do some snorkeling. Bonaire is truly paradise. 

#6 New York City 

New York is the capital of the world. Any time of the year is honestly the best time to visit New York. But if you really have to choose, we’d pick early summer or late fall. New York has something for everyone. It’s that place where you come to make your dreams come true. You can go enjoy the sights like the empire state building, the top of one world trade, and head down to Soho for some amazing food and shopping. Or take in central park. This is the city that everyone should just visit at least once. 

#7 Hawaii

Hawaii is an isolated volcanic island chain in the central pacific ocean. Its islands are renowned for the rugged landscapes of cliffs and waterfalls. They are indeed one of the most incredible places you could possibly get away to. The best experience in Hawaii could be driving up to the summit of Haleakala on Maui and watching the sunset. And once you've reached there - it is absolutely quiet, not a breath of wind, there's not a single person. It's just you in peace. Although, driving the iconic road to Hana is a must. Make sure to leave very early to avoid all the tourists and stop for some banana bread along the way. On the island of Lanai, go horseback riding and off-roading on the backside of the island through the lush tropical rainforest. Finally, on the island of Oahu, hike to the top of the diamond head at sunrise. Make friends with locals and truly experience ancient Hawaiian traditions such as pounding a poi.

That's all I came up with from my experiences. I'd love to hear your travel stories. Or if you have any questions about the travel-tech industry I work in - bring it on.
