Best places to travel 2017

If you are looking for the best places to travel in the world, keep reading, because we have found what we think are the top 10 places to visit in the world.

How does one come up with a list of ‘the best’ places in the world to visit? Obviously any list is going to be heavily influenced by what we love to do, or see, or visit. And just as we wrote in our Top tips when planning a road trip through Italy, if you love driving and road trips, then one country may appeal more to you than another.

In the end we included a wide variety of criteria which we think will appeal to the majority of visitors.

So take a look and see what you think. We love to hear from our friends, so feel free to disagree (nicely!) and let us know if you have any others that should be on the list of the best places to travel in 2017.

10. South Africa

We visited there many years ago and people tell us that it is still an amazingly cheap place to visit! Big 5 safaris, breathtaking scenery, stunning wine tours, an amazing cultural and creative diversity, and even shark cage diving – if you are brave enough!

9. Bermuda

Breathtaking natural wonders to explore, alluring beaches and brilliant blue water to sail or dive, or paddle or ski (or all 4), and luxury redevelopment intended to attract overseas visitors like never before, make Bermuda a must-see destination.


8. Peru

Machu Picchu, the Amazon Rainforest, the Inca Trail, and other archaeological wonders waiting to be photographed, are just a small part of this wonderful South American country waiting to be explored.

7. Hawaii

This art-centric powerhouse is perhaps more well-known for its rugged landscapes, tropical forests and amazing beaches. But its cultural and art scene is also something to be enjoyed and admired across its six islands scattered with parks, volcanos and WWII memorials.


6. Thailand

Bangkok and Chiang Mai are well-known by most tourists, but there is a whole other side to this wonderful country once you get off the tourist track and explore the culture, tropical beaches, royal palaces, and iconic temples.

5. Canada

This beautiful country consisting of ten provinces and three territories is just waiting for you to discover its friendly people, rugged coastlines and mountains, wildlife, culture…and did we mention its friendly people! Us Aussies have always shared a very close friendship with our Canadian friends, and any excuse to visit, whether for a week, or six months is a welcome experience.


4. Switzerland

The most beautiful country in the world. A big claim, but you might agree once you witness its stunning mountainous landscapes, lakes, resorts, alpine hiking and skiing. The world’s longest railway tunnel and of course its amazing chocolates are also just part of the reason for visiting this central European country this year.

3. Ireland

Beautiful Ireland has to be seen to be believed, Stunning landscapes, some of the friendliest people we have ever met, and a culture that is just infectious. You cannot visit this lovely country without leaving a part of you there. Take the time to explore its rugged landscapes, beautiful towns and villages, iconic music, and its dramatic history and distinct culture.

2. Seychelles

This archipelago off East Africa is home to some of the most stunning beaches, coral reefs and nature parks in the world. Mountain rainforests, giant Aldabra tortoises, and romantic turquoise water and beaches you have to see to believe, are just a small part of the reason many people, including honeymooners chose the Seychelles as THE place to stay when they want to be far from the madding crowd for a time.


1. Greece

This stunning southeastern European country has long been thought of as the playground of the rich and famous, but we mere mortals can go there just as easily. With its amazing historical landmarks, ancient history, beautiful culture, romantic sunsets, and deep blue Aegean waters, you will go for a short holiday and want to stay a lifetime!


So, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags, book a ticket and just remember to let us know how you go!
