The Most Visited Travel Destinations Of 2014

Filled under:


Brazil is home to some incredible natural wonders, including the Amazon rainforest, the stunning beaches in Ipanema. There are also very exciting cities, such as Rio de Janeiro and San Paulo. Of course, Brazil is hosting the 2014 World Cup so there is even more reason to go. The World Cup will take place in the city of Porto Alegre from June 12th to July 13th. Brazil also has one of the world's best carnivals in Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Recife, Salvador de Bahia, Olinda, and other fun loving cities. In Rio de Janeiro, it is well worth visiting the spectacular Sugarloaf Mountain on the Aerial Tram, which one of the world's most beautiful cable car rides. Brazil has a fantastic culture and amazing music seems to playing around every corner.


Despite the recent political turmoil in Thailand, the country remains one of the most friendly, peaceful and beautiful countries in South East Asia. The country has stunning beaches, exciting cities, beautiful Buddhist temples, national parks and gorgeous mountains. Bangkok has been voted the best city for tourists for four years in a row and the city's reputation for being sleazy is undeserved. There are fantastic temples to visit, markets and exciting nightlife. In the south there are some the world's most spectacular beaches with white sands, palm trees and azure waters. There are plenty of opportunities to dive, snorkel or party on the beach until the sun goes down. In the north of Thailand the little hippy town of Pai is well worth visiting, it is set in the beautiful Himalayan foothills where opportunities to visit hill-tribe villages are and go elephant trekking. There is so much to see and do in Thailand, one trip is never enough!


Java is the second biggest island in Indonesia and it is rich with an incredible culture, art, music stunning volcanos and beautiful beaches. Yogyakarta and Solo are two cities that are great places to stay as they represent the cultural heart of the island. Both cities are rich in Javanese culture and you can enjoy Gamalan music, Ramayana dance performances, Wayang shadow puppet theatre and Javanese Batik art. Solo is more traditional than Yogyakarta (or Jodga as local like to call it), whereas Jodja has one of the best art schools in the world. Jodga also has live music everywhere and young students just love to busk in small groups or play at one of the reggae bars in the city. Also in Java you can enjoy the spectacular Mount Brumo mountain, which is an active volcano set in breath-taking scenery. There are also ancient temples on Java, such as the Borobudur Buddhist temple and Ratu Boko.


For its relatively small size, Morocco’s landscape is extremely diverse. At one extreme you can enjoy the stunning High Atlas Mountains, and at the other the huge sand dunes in the Sahara Dessert. The country also has fascinating Islamic and Berber cultures and the markets in the cities of Marrakesh and Fez are like stepping back to mediaeval times. There are also beautiful beaches where you can surf or go diving. Trekking in the High Atlas mountains is a once in a lifetime experience and the peaks sour to over 4000 meters above sea level. There is plenty of accommodation along the trails and you can experience the Berber way of life that has remained unchanged for centuries. It is also possible to take a jeep out into the Sahara Dessert to a small village called Merzouga and experience massive sand dunes, go camel trekking, stay in Berber camps and much more!
