City Escape In Seoul, South Korea

South Korea is often overlooked by Japan but South Korea’s capital city delivers in terms of culture and food.

Hike Up Machu Picchu in Peru

As one of Seven Wonders of The World, making the trek up Machu Picchu is a dream for many travelers.

Situated in the Andes Mountains above the Urubamba River valley, Machu Picchu is a cultural and natural area inscribed on Unesco’s World Heritage List.

This Incan city of sparkling granite is thought by scholars to have been a sacred archaeological center for the nearby Incan capital of Cusco.

Enjoy Island Life on Malta

If you’re looking for a solo escape to Mediterranean waters, Travel + Leisure recommends skipping Mykonos and head to Malta instead.

Why? Malta may be small in size but the island offers everything you want out of a Mediterranean vacation, including crystal blue waters; a charming, historic vibe; and cuisine that’s a perfect melange of Italy, Greece, and the Maghreb influences.
