Coming up with a list of the most underrated world destinations that nobody knows about is not something most people find useful. Those who never planned on visiting a remote village in Indonesia or Bolivia will probably not do so after reading about all the beauty and natural wonders one can find there.
On the other hand, there are plenty of world destinations that are well-known but are never on anyone’s travel bucket list because they are simply not popular enough. Here is a list of wonderful places you never thought of visiting that would leave you breathless.
Montreal may be colder in the winter than most cities in North America, but it definitely comes alive around Christmas and it’s worth spending the holidays in as its warm welcome and residents make the most wonderful time of the year extra special.
Montreal is packed with history, culture and energy that is rarely seen anywhere else on the continent with its slower pace of life, lively streets full of people and a population of over 4 million.
Costa Brava, Catalonia
When visiting South Europe, most people opt to see the south of France.
Those who pick Spain usually flock around Andalusia, or south of Spain, which is the most popular part of this country in the summer months.
However, Costa Brava, located in Catalonia, is a 100-mile coast featuring miles and miles of sandy beaches, small fishing villages, all located relatively close to Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia.
Actually staying in Barcelona to soak up the culture and visiting a different beach on Costa Brava every day to soak up the sun makes for a great active vacation for the whole family.
Tunis is located on the north part of Tunisia and even though it’s not on the beach itself, the coast is close enough for you to have a historically rich, sun-filled vacation when you come to visit. Tunisia is a Mediterranean gem located on the African continent, featuring a mixture of the Arabic, African, French and Mediterranean cultures.
In addition to beautiful beaches and Sahara desert, Tunisia has a very rich historical context, starting with the remains of ancient Carthage near Tunis.
The world is filled with amazing places that are yet to be discovered by world travellers so next time you are preparing a traveling adventure, consider going places that are not the most popular around.
