The Galapagos Islands are a unique string of islands off the coast of South America, home to some of the world’s most important and unique flora and fauna. Many people want to travel to the area every year but conservation efforts try to restrict mass tourism in order to preserve the delicate ecosystem here. Tours around the islands can introduce you to some of the most interesting animals, such as the huge Galapagos tortoises that call this region home and are arguably one of the most popular reasons to come to the area. The Galapagos is also best known for Charles Darwin, who visited the island and developed his theory of evolution from the data he recorded.

Whether you’re an adventure seeker who wants to climb Mount Kilimanjaro or you’re just looking to kick back on one of Tanzania’s impressive white sand beaches, this country has something for you. If you’re interested in the history of mankind, consider visiting the Ngorongoro Crater in the north of the country, known to be the place where one of mankind’s oldest footprints was found.

When people think of China, they may think of some of the big cities such as Hong Kong, Shanghai or Beijing. While these are great places to start with your trip to China, other amazing places to check out include Guangzhou, Xi’an and Chengdu – especially if you like history, culture and pandas!

Karst limestone mountains line valleys in which you can find some of the most truly authentic travelling experiences, such as having tea alongside locals in tiny, dark teahouses lit by Chinese paper lamps and the like. Do not miss.
