See the Taj Mahal
Did you know that it took 20,000 artisans and over 50 million dollars to make this ‘Crown of Palaces’? It would be a sin to miss out on the Taj Mahal, often considered the best example of Mughal architecture, if we are to have an ultimate travel list, right?

Cruise the Antarctic region
This ‘White Continent’ may not be the first thought when you think about cruising, but did you know that less than 20,000 cruise travellers get to discover Antarctica annually! An Antarctic cruise is quite practically, an once-in-a-lifetime notch in a cruiser's belt, whether he’s a veteran or a novice.
Have an epic road trip through the USA
What better way to explore the U.S than to go on an all-American road trip? Picture a vignette of your classic red Chevy standing beside a roadside burger joint, with nothing but distant neon lights and the never-ending road in sight. Sigh!
If not the U.S, here are 15 Scenic Road Drives Which Will Be Etched In Your Memories Forever
Walking the streets of Bruges, Belgium
Often overshadowed by Belgium’s more popular destinations like Brussels and Antwerp, Bruges is delightfully quaint to say the least. This historic port city is best known for its medieval design and copious canals, and is best explored on either bicycle or foot.
Walk the Great Wall of China
At almost 9000 kilometres, the Great Wall of China is but a sight to behold. It took more than 2000 years to construct the entire structure and will probably take me longer to walk the entire length of it! Nevertheless, I am determined.
Explore Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
Just like Charles Darwin! Did you know that it was his observation on Galápagos' species (the wildlife diversity found on this gorgeous archipelago is beyond compare), that later inspired his Theory of Evolution?
Ride a gondola in Venice
Sailing through Venice’s distinguished network of canals is on the wishlist of every romantic looking for a memorable holiday. Make sure your sailor sings to you as you sail through the waterfront vistas and ornate bridges of this beautiful city.
London tour on the iconic double-decker bus
Distinctive British culture coupled with a cosmopolitan outlook and rich traditions make London one of the most visited cities in the world. And what better way to uncover the true essence of United Kingdom’s capital city than on one of its famous red coloured double-decker buses?

Go camping in Nepal
Because let’s face it– lizards, bugs, snakes and spiders have been our nightmares for way too long. It’s time to beat that fear and relish a bonfire night with roasted marshmallows and campfire songs under a starlit sky.
