Lifestyle Buzz: New 2019 Travel Destinations To Check Out Now

Thinking of where to head next is something that may be constantly on the minds of many of us on most days. And considering just how many places there are to choose from, we often seem to just go to the same destinations as everybody else. Although sometimes, it pays to be different every now and then, and travel to places that are less traveled, have smaller crowds, or not too popular amongst your circle of friends. Here are some travel ideas that might just help you do that!

Where’s the Buzz

Thailand has a number of uncrowded islands for beach lovers, or those who simply want to travel out of the country. Railay Beach in Krabi Province is just one of them, which isn’t just beautiful, but is also paradise for rock climbers! Be sure to also do the Four Islands Tour to make the most out of your visit. Coral Island is another must-visit, if scuba diving or snorkeling is your thing, as they are known for their beautiful coral reefs. Or you could opt for Cha-Am, which is known for their extreme water sports like windsurfing and parasailing.

Also in Thailand, for coffee afficionados, you might want to consider checking out one of their coffee plantations, such as Suan Lahu in Chiang Mai or Doi Tung in Chiang Rai to experience how coffee is made from bean to cup. Immerse yourself in their culture by starting your day with cherry picking, roasting, and finally tasting the coffee.

El Nido, Palawan still makes sure to be a part of everybody’s travel plans, as Huni—Ayala Land’s newest bed and breakfast just opened with 50 rooms. The B&B in Lio features a simple contemporary design that’s also ecologically sustainable. The rooms have full-length glass doors allowing guests to enjoy El Nido’s intimate views.

What’s Buzzin’

For the Game Of Thrones fans out there, it would be a dream to visit the filming locations of the most popular TV series in the past decade. Join Klook as they offer their newest tours and activities to the Seven Kingdoms like a cruise and walking tour around Dubrovnik—the setting for King’s Landing, or book a hiking and bath tour to Lake Myvatn in Northern Iceland, which was made popular by Jon Snow and Ygritte’s romantic rendezvous. You could also visit the kingdom of Dorne that was actually filmed in Seville, Spain.

Get lost at Singapore’s latest attraction, Jewel Changi, the next time you have a long layover in Changi. Here, you’ll find the massive Rain Vortex standing at 40-meters, and the lush greenery surrounding it called the Forest Valley. The Jewel is also a one-stop shopping destination with 10 floors of retail stores and attractions. There’s no other way to spend hours but to explore this newest attraction.

Taking photographs is one of the best way to make memories and of course, none of us want to miss this opportunity. So instead of using a tripod or asking strangers to take your couple photos, which may not turn out the way you want them to be, why not hire SweetEscape? Ensure that your photos are Instagram-worthy whatever the condition - from the beautiful cherry blossom season in Seoul, to a snowy day in Niseko.
