New destinations on my travel list
Stumbled across this list of 50 best destinations to travel to in 2015 and several new places just made it into my future travel destinations:
Chengdu, China – for it’s still-unspoiled bamboo forest near the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Qingcheng—the birthplace of Taoism and the Dujiangyan irrigation system, an ecological engineering feat dating back to around 256 B.
Oman – for its natural beauty, from poetic desert to beautiful coastline on earth.
Mekong river region – because Galli Zugaro launched a Mekong riverboat with three-, four-, and seven-night itineraries between Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and Siem Reap, Cambodia. All have off-the-beaten-path excursions—biking through remote Cambodian villages, exploring Vietnam’s floating markets—planned by a cast of excellent guides.
Tanzania – for it’s northern circuit, encompassing the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater.
Nicaragua – for its geographic diversity—beaches, lakes, islets, volcanoes, rainforests, and reefs—as for its colonial-meets-bohemian vibe.
