5 exotic countries, where you will venture to visit not every aspiring traveler (and for good reason)
We do not mean any extreme or particularly dangerous areas in which experienced travelers feel uncomfortable, to say nothing about beginners. Passion.ru I talked with travel-experts and found out what exotic expanses should pay attention to those who have been only in the near abroad and very much dreams (but is afraid) to visit something unusual and memorable.
Start immediately with heavy “artillery.” You, too, as a child parents scared phrase that if you do not obey, they will send you to Africa, where danger lurks at every turn? Many people, remembering their childhood fears, do not dare to visit this amazing country in the end, and in vain. There is no, vigilance, lose, of course, not worth, but, however, as and in any other place on a map. Travelers who first found themselves in Tanzania, enthusiastically talk about how they watched the first rays of the sun, being right in the crater of the volcano Ngorongoro, extinct more than 2.5 million years ago, or how they met a herd of graceful antelopes, wayward zebras, original hyenas, Royal leopards, stunning flamingos and, of course, lions. And after the end of all the words of admiration from the contemplation of African nature, you can go straight to the Maasai to see how and what today lives this tribe, learn to dance and welcome to understand what the real “African passion”.
If you at least once managed to visit Peru, then, for sure, Bolivia will seem not so exotic to you. But, unlike its “neighbor”, this country is the highest in the southern hemisphere, different stunning scenery, from which literally breathtaking and dizzy. If you still dare to visit Bolivia, then get ready to admire the incredible lagoons, inhabited by pink flamingos, learn to dance local dances, have fun with the local population during one of the colorful carnivals, make friends with cute alpacas, buy something from traditional outfits and Souvenirs, as well as visit the salt desert of Uyuni. These impressions will be enough for you to talk about them with pride to your friends and family.
Unfortunately, many did not have a very good impression of this country, including thanks to the numerous bunkers and the Albanian mafia. Although, in fairness, it is worth noting that at the moment it is quite hospitable and safe direction (mafia, for example, has long since sunk into Oblivion, so to be here very comfortable). Why come here? At least in order to see with my own eyes the incredible azure sea, picturesque mountains, amazing nature, and in some places preserved cities of the Ottoman Empire.
This destination is perfect for those travelers who after a couple of days of exhausting heat begin to dream of a comfortable coolness. Therefore, if you have a valid Schengen, you can visit Iceland, more like a fantasy scenery than a realistic country. What to do? We recommend that you definitely walk through the fields of lava, catch the shimmering rainbow over the waterfall, explore the glacier, visit the geysers, soaring a rapid stream into the sky, and the beaches with black volcanic sand and, if you’re lucky, to see the whale with your own eyes and numb with happiness next to such beauty. And then, already sitting on the plane, regret that did not decide before on this amazing journey. That is, for example, and it turned out one friend of a couple who got married just a month ago and choose a place for a honeymoon. They argued for a long time and could not decide where, in fact, they want to start their already family journey. As a result the man insisted on Iceland, and the wife, having visited there once, promised that they will return there by all means, but now already big structure.
If you are a fan of Asia, then surely you will like Myanmar, which has recently become an increasingly popular destination. And despite the fact that in many parts of the country is not yet safe, if you follow special tourist routes, you can fully experience the special Asian flavor and feel the local traditions and customs. In addition, seasoned travelers recommend to meet the dawn in a balloon over the mystical Bagan, and then go to lake Inle and chat with fishermen or, dressed up in a traditional Burmese costume, arrange a colorful photo shoot on the background of fascinating urban landscapes.
