If you love to travel then you might feel as if you’ve already seen everything there is to see. Maybe you’ve explored all the major cities in all the major parts of the world and experienced modern culture whilst learning a lot about ancient history. There’s no denying that you’ve probably already learnt a lot from your travels and experienced many diverse cultures across the world but that doesn’t mean your traveling days are over yet. No individual can ever see everything there is to see in the world and that’s a wonderful thing; it means your travels can never truly be over. There’s always more to explore.
And for those of you out there who are looking for a brand new adventure in order to reignite your love for exploration, you should change your approach to travel. You could make a plan to visit all the most beautiful islands in the world in order to find that sense of adventure. Obviously, some islands are more popular and densely populated than others but all islands have a certain beauty to them. Maybe it’s something about an island being cut off from the rest of the world and forming its own unique culture, but this could definitely be a great new way to approach travel. Here are some of the best islands to visit for an adventure.
Let’s start with a the perfect sun-soaked vacation destination that is Corfu. This beautiful Greek island offers everything you could want when traveling. It’s not only naturally gorgeous but it’s also the home of fascinating Greek culture and history. You should start by visiting the old town for a fascinating history lesson but also the chance to see some mind-blowing architecture. The old town was built within fortifications and, as a result, is composed of many narrow streets neatly arranged and paved with cobblestones. It’s a look at history but it’s also a clean and colorful place in the modern day. There are also many intriguing museums on the island. You really have to visit the Music Museum of the Philharmonic Society of Corfu to get a look at some of the incredible compositions and instruments that make up Corfu’s rich tapestry of music history.
Singapore, Southeast Asia.
Singapore is really an island like no other on this list. It’s a city, in a sense, but it’s a city on an extreme scale. There’s so much to see on this island. Little India is a wonderful district that celebrates Indian culture, for example. The multicultural dishes in Singapore are also a beautiful mix of Chinese, Malay, and Indian cuisine. You should probably do some research so that you can find a good rental house in Singapore so that you have somewhere nice to stay whilst you experience this incredible island. You’ll most likely want to stay for a while to explore the dense mega-metropolis that this island city-state has to offer.
Ko Lipe, Thailand.
In Southern Thailand, there’s a beautiful island called Ko Lipe. If you’re looking for a “real” island experience then this is the place to visit. You’ll get to experience the stunning local cuisine; the seafood there is beautiful because the water surrounding this island is full of life. You should definitely go snorkeling whilst you’re there because you’ll get to explore an even larger world beneath the surface of the ocean. Seeing exotic breeds of sea life is really the kind of experience you can only get when visiting an island in other parts of the world. You need to venture out of your comfort zone.
Hawaii, United States.
This beautiful collection of islands is the most recent addition to the United States and possibly the best state America has to offer. The island of Hawaiʻi is the largest island in the state of Hawaii and a great place to start on your travels of this great part of the world. The city of Hilo is the largest settlement on the island and a place that has so much to offer in terms of both natural beauty and culture. Two volcanoes, Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, loom above the city and they’re simply fantastic to see in the flesh. You should also visit Liliuokalani Park and Gardens whilst you’re in the city because it’s absolutely awe-inspiring.
If you’re looking for more islands to visit in the area because your hunger can’t be satiated by Hawaii alone then you should visit Kauai. This island is known as the garden isle due to its fantastic rainforests. Venture through the natural beauty of this stunning place and you’ll see some of the most wonderful wildlife you could hope to find in America. This island is truly its own special little world and it’s definitely worth the visit.
Australia is so huge that it’s a little harder to narrow down into one bite-size travel package than the other islands on this list, but it’s by no means any less spectacular. Much like the other islands mentioned, Australia has developed its own unique culture that combines both its historical and modern day values. This beautiful country is defined by soaring skylines in its bustling modern cities and the wild unexplored landscape of its ferocious outback. It’s a country that truly offers everything you could possibly want out of a travel experience.
If you’re looking for somewhere to begin then you have to visit Sydney. It wouldn’t be a proper visit to the land down under if you didn’t see such an iconic city. The Opera House is obviously a landmark that you need to see with your own eyes. And if it that isn’t enough to impress you then you should actually step inside the Opera House because it puts on some fantastic performances. When you’re bored of all the culture and excitement of the city center (if that’s possible) then you should head to the coast to enjoy some of the beautiful beaches Australia has to offer.
