There’s nothing like an exotic destination for a change of air and to remind yourself of the great things in life. While some destinations are popular for their sheer magnificence, others seem to be recommended just because they’re the “it” thing right now. In this article, we’re going to give you a few exotic travel destination ideas to choose from.
1. Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
Not everybody knows about this beautiful country next to the Indian Ocean, but it is one of Africa’s hidden gems. Dar Es Salaam is a fairly well-developed city with good infrastructure. You can also get from Dar Es Salaam to Zanzibar in a few hours by ferry. Zanzibar is an absolute paradise for surfers and water sports lovers. It also has some of the most beautiful scuba sites in the world and some of the world’s most pristine beaches as well. Zanzibar is also known for its diverse and exotic cuisine, which was influenced by Arabic, Indian, and African cuisine.
But, one of the top reasons to visit the region is for its safaris. You can go from Dar Es Salaam to exotic safari destinations in about an hour, giving you a great contrast between wildlife and city life. Agencies like Mojhi offer safaris in and around the region and they’re very affordable as well. They offer short and long-term safari trips for all budgets.
2. Maui, Hawaii
Hawaii is one of these places that is much hyped and praised by everybody. But in this case, its reputation is fully warranted. Maui is an absolute paradise on earth and offers some of the most beautiful scenery and beaches in the world. What’s great about Maui compared to other destinations around the island is that it has still maintained much of its pristine charm since most of it is still undeveloped. However, you are still close to basic amenities, which allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. Maui is also known for its unique cuisine, which incorporates native and Asian influences.
3. Cape Town, South Africa
Cape town is another great destination if you want to enjoy both city life and wildlife. The city’s coastal location makes it one of the world’s best cities for beach lovers. Some places to visit include Bantry Bay, Blouberg, Camps Bay, Hout Bay, and Clifton. You should also take the time to go to Table Mountain, which is one of the major natural wonders in the area.
The city features tons of Dutch-style buildings, which give the city a certain charm. Head down to the Green Market Square if you want to feel the hustle and bustle of the flea market and maybe walk out with a great deal. But don’t be afraid to haggle…
Whether it’s Cape Town, Dar Es Salaam, or Maui, all these destinations have something different to offer. If you decide to go for any of them, make sure that you take the time to learn about the region and do take proper safety measures before you book your trip.
