Travel is becoming more affordable as cheaper international flights increase, making it easier than ever to get out and visit the world. It is rather difficult to choose just 5 places since there are so many beautiful destinations in the world and it actually boils down to a matter of opinion. Here are 5 places we think everybody must see.

Germany

You are probably wondering why on earth Germany. Well, besides the fact that Germany holds some of the most historic moments, including the Second World War, it has to be their Beer!

It’s no secret that the Germans brew some of the world’s greatest beer. To experience true German beer you’ve got to be there to enjoy it. They also have a beer festival which is done annually in Munich in the month of October.

During Christmas this is when the magic begins. Did you know Germany was actually where the concept of the Christmas tree first originated?

Oh and let’s not forget, if you talk nuts and bolts then a visit to Germany will be a dream come true

South Africa

South Africa holds some of the world’s best historical moments and stories and is also home to the legend Nelson Mandela.

South African culture is as diverse as its people. With so many different people who embrace their culture why not try your tongue at the 11 official languages!

South Africa’s scenic wonders are legendary. Table Mountain, God’s Window, the forests, coast lines and deserts will feast your eye and lift your spirit. The activities are endless; you can experience everything from mountain climbing to cage diving.

And a warning to all nature lovers, visiting South Africa can become an addition. You can see it all from the big five to penguins.

Paris-France

Paris, France should be on top of everyone’s list. A viist to Paris can be overwhelming, with so much to see it may be difficult to know where to start.

Every person should see the world capital of romance, Paris has been praised for its romantic standing, nature and world class shopping malls for exclusive clothes and shoes.

France is home to some of the world’s most exotic and beautiful buildings and towers. From shopping and restaurants, museums and public gardens, tree-lined boulevards and monuments, architecture and music, everywhere you go in Paris there is something new to discover.

The Arch of Triumph, in the center of Place Charles de Gaulle in Paris, is France’s most famous monument and is a prime example of 18th century neo-classicism.

Montmartre is one of the most visited regions of Paris. This site has a long religious history which was originally occupied by druids, then was later the site of two Roman temples.

There are endless places to visit, yet its beauty can only be completely appreciated if experienced first hand.

The Pyramids – Egypt

The Pyramids are one off the oldest tourist attractions in Egypt, and they are a significant part of Egyptian history. You might have seen them on TV but believe me it is a whole lot different in person.

Egypt is the only place in Africa where the bible says Jesus has ever walked, and we all have heard the story of Moses and the Israelites and Furrow. Surely we all want to see this place in person.

You may not realize this but Egypt is actually a Mecca for adventure sports and outdoor pursuits. Some of planet’s best diving and snorkeling spots are to be found in the Red Sea. Camel and donkey riding is also extremely popular or for something altogether more lethargic why not sail across the skies in a hot air balloon.

China

Chinese people are synonymous with their knowledge of religion and healing powers. The way they use nature to heal is just too fascinating. They are a beautiful group of people who think beyond the visible and believe that every experience is a learning curve. The next time you plan a trip think about visiting China. Who knows the positive attitude and approach to life the Chinese might rub off onto you and don’t forget the famous Great Wall of China!

Chinese food is renowned around the world, though many dishes served abroad are a pale comparison of the local offering. Eating out will be the highlight of your trip.
