From staggeringly beautiful natural mountain landscapes that make you feel as though you are on another planet, to a tropical beach paradise lined with lush palm trees, to the hustle and bustle of an energetic cosmopolitan city, ORO GOLD’s favorite travel destinations will no doubt appeal to each and every one of you. They are all one-of-a-kind locations, with such unique experiences to offer you.
When it comes to travel destinations around the world, Scotland is usually quite underrated. The bigger cities, such as Edinburgh and Glasgow, are great places to visit, but it is the Scottish Highlands, as well as the Hebridean Islands, that make Scotland one of our favorite travel destinations. The Isle of Skye, off the west coast of Scotland, has been voted as one of the top island holiday destinations in Europe, beating the more expected locations such as Sicily. Skye has a dramatic mountainous landscape with cascading waterfalls, serene lochs and isolated beaches. There are many boat trips available that will take you to other islands in the area, each of which is known for unique qualities, such as the island where seals lie to soak up the sun. Scotland is also the home of whisky, and whisky enthusiasts will be impressed by the vast number of breweries in every area of Scotland. Many offer free tours and a tasting session, as well as delicious restaurants and some great gift shops.
Another one of our favorite travel destinations is Singapore, a cosmopolitan island city that is hugely influential around the world. Known for being one of the cleanest cities in the world, as well as one of the most regulated, Singapore might not have the most exciting reputation, but beneath the polished exterior lies a deep and complex sense of culture and tradition. Singapore is packed with outstanding shopping destinations, from tiny local boutiques to the most luxury designer stores you could imagine. It is home to the Louis Vuitton ‘island’, a huge floating store spread over two floors. Singapore is also home to the world’s largest rooftop pool, which is an infinity pool sat on top of a luxury 5 star hotel. The pool overlooks the city, and with the sparkling lights below you at night whilst you relax in the pool sipping on a Singapore Sling, you really feel as though you are on top of the world.
For a more relaxing holiday, one of our favorite places to visit is the Seychelles, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, near to the south-east of mainland Africa. The Seychelles was once thought to be the location of the Garden of Eden, which is no surprise when you are surrounded by the gorgeous beaches and clear blue sea. The beaches here are some of the most photographed in the world, as not only can you find white and yellow sandy beaches, but you can also find some with pink sand, giving the beach quite a surreal feeling.
OROGOLD’s favorite travel destinations are each exciting in their own way, and are places that are so captivating that you will want to return to them year after year. From the snow-capped Scottish mountains to the pink, sun-kissed Seychelles beaches, these are some great places to keep in mind when you are planning your next vacation.
