There are countless beautiful travel destinations on our planet. I would not say, that some are better than others, because every place has something special to it, but some places will certainly blow your mind. These are my top 5 travel destinations, that you definitely have to see in life…

Top 5 travel destinations that will blow your mind

First of all I have to say, that it was really hard to decide, which travel destinations are my 5 favourites. There are so many and could take 5 other ones immediately as well. But if I had to decide, I would have to go for the following five, because they are just incredibly special. I know every traveller has his different favourites, but these ones are mine so far

Unbelievable beauty at Whitehaven Beach

This one had to be under my top 5 travel destinations. During my time in Australia I went to the Whitsunday Islands with my girlfriend. It lies in the north east of Australia close to the Great Barrier Reef. We went on a sailing trip with 25 other backpackers. We did some snorkeling, a bit of hiking on the small islands, saw some humpback whales and stayed at Whitehaven Beach. I honestly could not believe what I saw. To me that was pure beauty. Nature at its finest.

There are some lookouts on the island where you have a fantastic view onto Whitehaven Beach and the whole area. Absolutely stunning. Especially when the bay slowly starts to fill up with water. It also is suppose to have the finest sand on earth and you can definitely see that. The sand actually really is white as well (that is where the name comes from 😉 ). And the water colour there… just magnificant! You really have to see this!

Whitehaven Beach is easily one of the best travel destinations on the planet

Strong nature at Milford Sound

Milford Sound is definitely under the top 5 travel destinations for a reason. Usually most travellers would maybe not even consider to have this place as a top 5, but for me it has to be. Milford Sound is just spectecular! When I was in New Zealand, I went there with Kiwi Experience. It is located in the southwest of the southern island of New Zealand. We did a boat trip around the area. You basically drive through the fjords for a couple hours. We also had the chance to see some seals and dolphins. Very nice!

Sometimes you can even spot some orcas, if you are lucky. Some of the waterfalls you see so along the way are higher than 100 meters. The captain drives really close to them so you can feel the whole power of this wonders of nature. When I stood there, watching what surrounded me, I was just fascinated! You would not believe how beautiful and pure this place is at the same time. So make sure you go there whenever you are in New Zealand.

True paradise at Maya Bay

This is place is paradise. Heaps of people consider this place to be one of the most beautiful travel destinations on earth and I do too. Maya Bay is located in southern Thailand close to Koh Phi Phi. It is so wonderful! You can only reach it by doing a boat tour. There are many different companies that offer these tours and they are definitely a lot of fun. You will stop at some other nice spots like Monkey Bay on the way. Maya Bay is the place where the movie the beach with Leonardo Dicaprio was taken.

It is not suprising, that they took this place, because it is truely amazing. Nowerdays a lot of people go there every day. Most of them are tourists. A couple years ago, there have not been that many tourists visiting this place. Just after the tsunami in 2006 it got really popular and people started to notice this incredible piece of nature. So go there as soon as you can before it gets even more crowded.

Old temples at Angkor Wat

These temples are also one of the best travel destinations ever. They are more than a thousend years of age and have been found again in the 18th century by some french colonial masters. They are located in the west of Cambodia. You do not even need to be very interested in culture or history to like this place. Just the style of these temples and the feeling you get when you explore them is so cool.

There are many different Cambodian companies that offer tours. You will need some days to explore all the temples in the area, but you can also see a lot in a day tour. You will start really early, but therefore you will see something that you probably have never experienced before. It is very different to everything else I have seen on my travel – really unique. You also gonna find the temple, where Lara Croft – Tomb Raider was filmed. Everything you find there definitely has postcard potential to it and it is one of the best travel destinations on the planet!

Wonders of nature at Halong Bay

The 7th new wonder of nature! This is one of the travel destinations you have to see, when you are in Vietnam. It is located in the north east and just a couple hours away from Hanoi – the capital of Vietnam. I went there, when I travelled through the whole country with a motorbike. You can visit this place with a sailing tour. You basically drive along thousends of big rocks that loom out of the water.

During these tours you will also stop to see some really impressive caves, to do some kajaking and maybe visit a small island nearby. It is just magnificant! The extraordinary beauty you will see, is just not from this world. It really took my breath. Especially when the sun goes down than the ocean and the rocks start a beautiful symbiosis that is hard to explain. You honestly just have to see this yourself.

What I learned from visiting these places

As you can read here I also want to focus on the personal development, that travelling gives to you. It might sound a bit melancholic, but visiting all these places made me realize, that there is so much beauty in this world. Our planet has so much to give. You could travel your whole life, and still did not even see half of what the world has to offer on beautiful destinations.

It showed me, that we are all responsible for this world. We should treat it with respect. If not for us, than at least for future generations. Because if we don’t, than the day will come sooner or later where our kids do not have the opportunity to visit these fantastic places anymore. That is why we should all do our part and treat mother earth in the right way, so that we can still enjoy the fruits of it in the future!

      Hey kellee,

      thanks for your comment! 🙂

      I use the Yoast SEO Plugin. As far as I know it is the best and most common Plugin for that. But there might be others out there.

      Cheers Volle

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. Personally,
    if all site owners and bloggers made good content
    material as you did, the net might be much more useful than ever before.

  • Strolling through paradise... 😍👌🌴
.
Some places on our planet are just crazy beautiful .
It's almost impossible to describe the beauty and the feeling that you get when you walk around at beaches like this one 🌞
.
I could not say which beach of all the ones I have seen so far would be the best one, but all the beaches in El Nido are definitely top ranked 🌏
.
TELL ME: Where did you really feel lost (in a good way 😉) the last time???
.

  • Hello mate, how are you? 😀🐻🐾
.
Isn't that the cutest animal on earth?
.
What I can definitely say for myself is that they are easily the fluffiest I have ever touched 😍
.
And they are by far the most relaxed animals ever. Maybe because of all the eucalyptus they eat... 😉
.
TELL ME: What's YOUR favourite animal?

  • The door to Angkor Wat during sunrise 😍🌅
.
I love a good sunrise! Not only because of its enormous beauty, but mainly for the fact that it's the perfect symbol for a new chance 👌
.
A new chance to improve
.
A new chance to do something good
.
A new chance to bring value to the world
.
A new chance to walk towards the right direction
.
And ultimately and new chance to get the best out your life and make great memories!
.
Great Memories that you can tell grandchildren about in 50 years from now, which will teach them some valuable lessons for life 🙏

  • A perfect example of a unique city that can teach a great lesson❗
.
Spending some time in one of the coolest and most beautiful cities on the planet made me think about what an insane level of power, creativity and endurance humanity has
.
It's crazy what we are able to do and to build nowerdays. But it has always been like this ⏳
.
Prague is a really good example for that. A city full of thousands and thousands of details, wonderful buildings and historically important monuments, all built over a course of hundreds of years
.
And the required power, creativity and endurance the people needed is something that we all have within ourselfs 🔥
.
It's not only reservated for specific people or special human beings
.
Everyone has that in him/ herself ! 💪
.
It's just about recognizing these strenghts and letting them all out... 👊 and don't let anyone tell you any different!
.
I always say this (on my website as well) - travel is the best teacher. You just need to find the true values of it and adapt them to your everyday life 👌
.

  • What's the true value of home? 😍🍁
.
Pretty autumn views like this one from a nearby forest of my hometown Hamburg?
.
Maybe...
.
But not really. In my opinion it's something else
.
As much as I like travelling around, discovering new places, getting to know other cultures, meeting new people and seeing other types of wonderful landscapes, I just still never forget where I come from ⚓
.
Exploring the world as much as possible is great, but there is also a great value in appreciating your own Backround
.
The more I look around, the more I see young people like me, who want to escape  from their home countries, just to wander around for as long as possible with no real intent
.
I think that's a big mistake! ☝
.
When the travel bug gets me again, I never JUST travel around to say:" hey look, I left things behind and went on the next big journey. Isn't that awesome???"
.
It is in a way, but not to much to be honest
.
When I go somewhere I always try to learn something new from the journey itself, the people or the culture AND THEN take it back home with me and use for my future
.
This why HOME is so important... Because it's the base where it all starts and Without home there would be nothing to ultimately come back and adapt your new skills to
.
So always make sure to appreciate home and where you come from 👌💪

  • I can already say, that exploring Nacpan Beach was one of the most beautiful things I have done this year even though there are still 2 months left... 😉😍
.
It's always fascinating to me how fast beautiful places like this usually become mass tourism spots
.
Luckily Nacpan Beach is still quite undeveloped and therefore one of the prettiest and most pristine beaches in northern Palawan in my opinion
.
Hopefully it stays like this for a long, long time ⏳🙏
.
If you have never been, I highly recommend to make this one of your next travel goals 😄

  • I don't know about you but I absolutely LOVE adventures❗
.
You know why?
.
Because they push you, they are fun AND you LEARN something valuable from them every single time 👊
.
One of the greatest adventures I have done in my life so far was a road trip through the center of Vietnam with my motorcycle that I called "Foxy Roxy" (I know that's weird 😅)
.
When I did it, I did not know what to expect, but my goal was to have an awesome time
.
I found out pretty quickly that it's gonna be a hard challenge: many locals didn't really speak English, roads have been in bad constitution, I got lost a couple times, my motorbike broke down 2 times, I freezed my ass off in the mountains and much, much more
.
So why was this adventure great then?
.
Because I LEARNED that you have got to keep pushing even if you struggle hard. You always have to keep going. Never give up. Keep moving and don't ever stop 💪
.
That's what I did, which is why I ended up having an amazing time: I saw awesome landscapes, met the friendliest people, found lost temples and ultimately learned an important lesson for life
.
ALWAYS keep pushing towards you goals EVERY single day and never give up
.
I AM CURIOUS: What is your biggest travel lesson??? 😊

  • There is a quote that says "if traveling was free, you'd never see me again" and this quote fits my attitude a 100%❗
.
My ultimate goal is to become free one day, financially and personally, so that I can travel to awesome places like banaue in the Philippines whenever I want 😍
.
Just being free of boundaries and the 9 to 5 lifestyle
.
If I had the chance, I'd probably travel the whole planet 🌎
.
Who's with me on this??? 😀

  • One of the best sunsets I have ever seen was on Koh Lanta in Thailand 🌅
.
I just love a good sunset and I know I am not the only one... 😉
.
So TELL ME: where was your favourite sunset at? 🌎
.
P.s. I am going to London in 3 weeks. Anyone who has some tips on what to do?
