Deciding on your travel destination can be difficult, especially if you’re thinking of travelling to a place that’ll give you an adrenaline rush, a vacation that’ll definitely amaze and wow you with its danger, intensity and risk. Here, we listed down some great vacation spots that are not just beautiful, but are also full of daring adventures you’d surely love to try.
Depending on which part you decide to visit, your experience of vacationing in Africa may vary from something family-oriented and tame to something more dangerous and primal. You can go on a safari tour in most African countries, but ensure that you travel with a reputable agency to avoid getting caught up in a rather dangerous situation. You can even trek through the wilderness and encounter the wild animals in their natural habitat.
Heli-skiing is an activity not suitable for the faint of heart. Imagine taking a helicopter ride to the top of a mountain, and when you hop out, you instantly start skiing downhill at breakneck speed. So much adrenaline rush, right? But if that kind of rush isn’t your cup of tea, you can also go mountain biking on the crazy trails of British Columbia either in a group or on your own.
Home to eight of the tallest mountains in the world Nepal is certainly one of the best travel destinations for adrenaline junkies. The place offers a great opportunity to go hiking, paragliding, rafting and so much more. And if you’re looking for the ultimate adventure experience, climb Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world.
Imagine exploring limestone walls, going white-water rafting with some amazing riptides, or jumping at one of the best bungee jumping sites in the world. All these and more can be done as soon as you set foot in New Zealand – and expect it to satisfy the adrenaline junkie within you.
Just like New Zealand, Switzerland also offer lots of daring and fun activities like bungee jumping, mountain biking and skydiving. In Switzerland, however, you can do all these activities with the Swiss Alps as your background – you can even trek in the Alps or do canyon diving if you want.
All these travel destinations offer unique activities to satisfy your adrenaline cravings. So escape the busy streets of Singapore now, and take some adventure-filled break on any of these thrilling travel locations.
You finally have the chance to take a break and contemplate on your life. What do you do? For some, they prefer staying inside the house to reflect but to others, they ponder for long weekend trips and there is nothing wrong with that. If in this case you are looking for exceptional long weekend trips away from Singapore, there are many places in store for you.
Skip the traditional trip to Bali or Bangkok. These places are too crowded now and overrated. Instead of having some fun, you will just end up getting annoyed of other people. If you want long weekend trips, choose places that are not as popular as Bali or Bangkok. There are many places with unparalleled views and not to mention beautiful diving spots.
So, here are some unpopular places but are equally fun for that long weekend trip of yours:
Travelling indeed gives delight to people. And what could be more rewarding and satisfying than travelling hassle free? But, if you travel alone, the greater fear and anxieties you feel compared to travelling with companions. Of course, you do not want to let anything or anyone spoil your tour, so you have to be as well, in your toes when you travel. Take on these tips in order for you to have a trouble free trip despite travelling alone.
With all these things, you have to make sure that you will not skip anything. To travel is indeed an enjoyable experience but isn’t it more delightful if you will arrive and will stay there safe and secured?
Sure there are a lot of adventures here in Singapore but sometimes, we have to see the bigger picture. Getting the big picture means going outside our comfort zone. If in this case you want to visit Australia, you are in a lot of treat. There are many Singaporeans living and studying in Australia so it is perfectly a safe country.
Its distance from here is about three thousand miles which is about eight hours of travel (if you disembark at Canberra). It is a long journey but everything will be worth it at the end of the day. Adventure is just waiting. All you have to do is to make it happen. Here are some activities or adventures worth trying when in Australia:
Make sure that everything is settled before actually flying there. Are your visas and passports ready? Did you book your hotel? As early as possible, make plans for a hassle free travel. If things are too complicated for you to remember, you can always hire for tourists guides or agencies to do everything for you.
Australia is also known for its terrific shopping experience. You can have a day or two just visiting shops and buying souvenirs for everyone.
Traveling, in its essence, is about seeing and experiencing the wonders of the world while enjoying life at its finest. As we wander through different places we have never been, we also become a different person for we not only discover destinations, but also, ourselves along the way.
Some people believe that traveling is merely witnessing breath taking views while others think that it is about getting lost and finding oneself. It has been held true by Asian, especially the Singaporeans who, according to Visa’s Travel Intentions. 95% of them have traveled more than the Asia Pacific. It goes to show that they love to travel and it is now becoming part of their culture.
Truth be told, you will find few of people in the world who dislike traveling, and there are so many out there who confess that they are “travel obsessed”. They spend their entire days thinking about travel-related things. For some, travel is life and something they wouldn’t have any other way and this is where we cross the line of distinguishing what makes a tourist and what constitutes a traveler at heart and in practice.
Tourists document moments; Travelers live it
There is nothing wrong about sharing your whereabouts specifically your travels on Instagram and Facebook but experiences become more precious when not spend behind the screen.
A traveler lives in the moment because he doesn’t want it to pass by, he knows when to snap a real good photo and savor the rest.
Tourists miss home; Travelers think where to go next
Tourists feel home sick, they miss their room back home and overlook the opportunity that traveling brings. A real traveler feels at home wherever he goes, he believes that life actually starts when one leaves the so called “comfort zone” and that there is nothing more fantastic than waking up in a different place.
Tourists go with the pack; travelers do wander
Tourists would always stay with the pack, stick to guide maps and magazines and are pretty much contented with taking photos. A traveler will wander around, explore their way and search their own experience. They don’t waste opportunities where fun and adventure waits go home with a great story to tell.
Tourists have lots of baggage; travelers pack light
Most tourists travel for comfort and they bring it as they move from one place to another which makes them carry loads of stuff. Travelers, on the other hand, bring basics and see whatever is available out there, do and consume anything just like any local. For the most part, they intend to experience and see things in a native’s eye.
Tourists splurge; Travelers save
A basic tourist will be spending money on leisure wherever they head because they travel for comfort but a real traveler would know how to travel for fun and great adventure without spending much—these are skills they have learned from roaming around different countries and immersing to diverse way of life.
When we travel to other places, we need a passport and of course the visa. The visa will depend on the country but we wish that passport will be enough because securing visa is not that easy. The good news is that there are countries that do not need visa. They only need passport.
There is an index which aims to find passports that give the most travel freedom – Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index 2015 in partnership with International Air Transport Association. The index ranks different countries according to the countries that their people can travel to without having to secure a visa.
Here’s the result:
Visa-free access is really a convenient thing. Hopefully we can get more countries to encourage travel freedom.
