When you think of vacation, you probably imagine a nice relaxation session in a sunny locale. While this is a great way to tap out from the everyday grind, vacationing can also be an opportunity to experience a new place and expand your cultural palette.
Are you looking for a different kind of vacation experience this spring season? We’ve put together a list of five must-see destinations for a warm weathered vacation that you’ll never forget.
Tokyo is the capital of Japan, and at every turn you will see tradition weaved with contemporary design to create something entirely unique. From its world-renowned art museums to its traditional kabuki theater exhibitions, there is something thrilling to take in no matter where the city takes you. Looking for an evening celebration? There are plenty of clubs and karaoke bars to scratch that party itch.
Sydney is one of the largest cities in Australia, and is home to the distinctive Sydney Opera House, which provides not only the perfect photo op but also the chance for a night of incredible entertainment. The city itself is teeming with amazing flora and fauna, including the Royal Botanical Garden and the Sydney Aquarium, while the docks and quays offer an opportunity to spend some time seaside and take in the fresh air.
Marrakesh is a veritable melting pot, and an exotic locale to sample some of the world’s most fascinating foods and witness vibrant local art displays. The center of the city dates back to the Middle Ages and was built by the Berbers where evidence of their architecture still remains, and landmarks of Islamic art can be seen everywhere you go.
Edinburgh, as with the other cultural destinations on this list, beautifully blends old and new, from the stunning views of Edinburgh castle to the shops and residences of the Royal Mile. There is something for everyone in this hilly Scottish city. We particularly recommend checking out the Stone of Destiny (an ancient coronation stone used to transfer power between generations of royalty) and, of course, the delicious local fish and chip spots.
Scene Saint Petersburg, located on the Baltic Sea, is one of the major port cities of Russia and acts as a hub of Russian culture and architecture. Witness the massive bronze statue of Peter the Great, or catch a ballet show at the world famous Mariinsky Theatre after a full day of taking in the mix of modern and medieval art decorating the walls of the State Russian Museum.
