5 Places to Travel in 2017
What better way to start off the new year than with some serious wanderlust? Straight from our bucket list we pulled some of our top picks for places to travel in 2017. We hope this list inspires some of your own travel plans!
Mont St Miguel, France
On the top of our bucket list is Mont St Miguel in France, one of the first monuments to be classed as a UNESCO world heritage site dating as far back as 1979. Mont St Miguel is an island commune in Normandy, France located about one kilometre off the country's northwestern coast. Despite expecting to share the island with huge amounts of tourists, we look forward to touring the religious monuments, old houses, narrow streets, restaurants and feel like we have been transported back to another time.
This year we are interested in exploring places we have never been before and challenging ourselves. We can’t think of a better experience to do that than in Choquequirao, Peru. Choquequirao, one of the most remote Inca settlements in the Andes, is known as the the “sister” of Machu Picchu. The Choquequirao Trek is said to be a challenging hike that takes you to some of the most important archeological sites in Peru. A perfect opportunity to add some adventure and experience Peruvian history.
Sabah is a Malaysian state occupying the northern part of the island of Borneo.
It is known for its beaches, rainforest, coral reefs and abundant wildlife, much of it within parks and reserves. Although we look forward to spending some time lounging around in the crystal blue seas, Sabah also offers a vast amount of activities from mountain climbing, diving, paragliding, white-water rafting and jungle trekking.
Lake Louise, Canada
Some of the best places can be found in your own backyard! The glaciers that once covered the Canadian Rockies, left behind undeniable beauty in the jade green lakes, deep gorges, canyons and rock formations found throughout Lake Louise and Banff National Park. While boasting one of the largest ski resorts, we plan to hit up Lake Louise in the summer where we can peer into the stunning turquoise water and hike the surrounding trails.
After over two decades of warfare between the Government and the Tamil Tigers, stability has brought many tourism opportunities to this beautiful country. Sir Lanka has no shortage of sights to see. From the Tea Country of Kandi, to the safari plains of Yala, the colonial fort town of Galle and beautiful beaches of Hikkaduwa. Indulging in curry three times a day? Don’t mind if we do!
