Birthdays are something that everyone looks forward to, well, most of us! Gifts, surprise parties, people giving you more attention than required – birthdays are definitely special. This year, rather than doing the regular birthday things, make some travel plans for your birthday instead, and treat yourself and your friends to a lovely vacation! We have compiled a list of destinations to that would be ideal to ring in your milestone birthdays. Read on…
The Unforgettable 21
Reaching 21 means you can now venture out on your own and travel to those far away shores that have been on your bucket list for years. Travel more to meet new people, experience different cultures, and most importantly, be independent and responsible! You might not have all the money in the world to splurge, so head to destinations such as Prague, which is a favourite amongst students and backpackers. Or, you can ring in your special day in the South Asian country of Vietnam; learn more about its past and soak in the beautiful landscapes the country has to offer. You could also tick-off Argentina on your list as this stunning nation is full of some amazing wildlife, picturesque lakes, and some great amount of skiing as well.
25 and Kicking
Celebrate as you are now an adult, officially! It’s time to make the most of your new found freedom. Travel with your friends and take on the world. Adventure seekers can try to rough it out in the land of the Himalayas – Nepal, or head to the shores of Goa in India and party till you drop! Those who are looking out for some sun, beaches, and lots of fun – Brazil will not disappoint you. Explore the exotic beaches and taste some local cuisines of Thailand or take a trip to the mystical land of Turkey and get spoiled by the richness of variety. You will not regret your 25th birthday, that’s our guarantee!
The Big 30
The big 30 needs to be celebrated in a big way; make this milestone birthday worth remembering for yourself, after all, you will never be 30 again! Or better, experience the thrills and breathtaking scenery of New Zealand; sky diving, bungee jumping, climbing, and hiking – you name it, they have it all. And, of course, its neighbour, Australia, where you can have loads of fun mixed with some great sightseeing, the Outback and the Great Barrier Reef, all ready for you, Down Under! For those who are looking for spending some quiet time with their near and dear ones can relax on the serene beaches of Mauritius or try the stunning Seychelles.
Turning 40 in Style
Turn a new leaf as you approach your 40’s. Your way of seeing the world has changed; you are either redefining aging rules or otherwise. Whatever your take, don’t forget to travel. Bring in your birthday with style and aplomb, after all, you have come a long way. Reward yourself by taking a holiday to the ‘Big Apple’. The concrete jungle of New York city will set your heart beating right from the word go! Museums, theaters, the streets, fine-dining – it is hard to not feel young in this bustling city. One of the important milestone birthdays calls for a much larger celebration, so what better than reveling in the French Riviera and spoiling yourself rotten. For the calmer lot, the Kingdom of Bhutan can be an enriching experience or the evergreen London can be equally alluring. A Kenyan safari is another great option to ring the 40th birthday amidst nature and wildlife.
50 – The Great Half Century
Yes, finally you have completed 50 years on this planet, so why not explore it some more! Without having to worry about your job or children, you can actually travel in peace, beat that! The first destination that comes to mind is Italy and its scenic cities and picturesque villages, wine, and some great food. If you still have an adventurer left in you, trek to Machu Picchu; visit the Taj Mahal in Agra and neighbouring cities, or soak up some sun and bask in the nightlife of Hawaii; the world is your oyster!
60 and Fabulous!
The feeling of entering your 60’s can be a little overwhelming. It’s that age where not only your children but even your grandchildren are excited for your birthday, so make it count. Celebrate this big day with your loved ones in the glamorous ski resort town of Aspen. Fringed with high-end restaurants, boutiques, museums – you won’t realize how quick your birthday went by. If you are a fan of history and all things ancient, then Crete in Greece is the right place for you – a great spring and autumn destination, it is a perfect place for long, scenic walks. Cambodia also has many takers – with Angkor Wat and other ancient marvels, this place has its own charm. If you are much of a conversationalist, the plazas of Madrid will keep you company.
