These Travel Destinations Should Be On Your 2018 Bucket List

Every year, there’s always that one new destination that people rave about. Last year, it was Maldives. Before that, it was Japan. In 2018, we have our sights set on these three:

1. Jakarta, Indonesia
With its busy streets and fast-paced lifestyle, this concrete jungle resembles Manila in many ways. But while they’re both buzzing centers of activity, Jakarta offers a different cultural experience, starting with a visit to Old Batavia, Jakarta’s old quarter.

Jakarta is also home to the Istiqlal Mosque, the largest mosque in Southeast Asia. One look at the dome and its main hall and you'll know right away that this house of worship is a sight to behold.


2. Siem Reap, Cambodia
Perhaps most known for its maze of historic temples, Siem Reap calls to mind lost cities and forgotten civilizations, one of which is Angkor Wat, one of the seven wonders of the world. Schedule your trip around sunrise or sunset—the view alone is worth the visit.

Before your journey ends, try to catch a traditional Khmer dance performance, too. It’s a beautiful expression of Cambodia’s culture, and one that will leave you with a better understanding of what the country is all about.

3. Wellington, New Zealand
Imagine picturesque landscapes, rolling hills, and breathtaking views. New Zealand’s idyllic capital is a breath of fresh air with its lovely harbour, boutiques, and galleries.

Spend time exploring the little city, but make sure to join the Weta Cave Studio Tours, too. It’s a great opportunity to see famous props and artifacts used in some of the biggest Hollywood films.
