Searching for trendy new travel destinations ? Here is my top 3 travel places to visit: Barcelona – Sagrada Familia: The massive Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Spain is officially titled the Basicila i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia. The many jutting and pointed towers including the Tower of the Virgin Mary make this building one of the world’s tallest religious buildings. Berlin – Berlin Wall: While the original Berlin Wall dividing this German city may have fallen in 1989, the city has never forgotten the connection to the Cold War. Today visitors go to see the East Side Gallery that is an open-air memorial dedicated to international freedom.
What can you see in Costa Rica : Easily accessible from Tamarindo, Playa Flamingo, Conchal, and Papagayo, the Catalinas Islands offer some of the best scuba diving in Costa Rica. This island chain is located off the Nicoya Peninsula in the northwest part of the country. The depth ranges between 18–75 feet (5.4–23 meters) and within this range there is an incredible diversity of wildlife. The islands are famous for their population and variety of rays, as well as tropical fish, sharks, sea turtles, and even sometimes whale sharks and pilot whales. Diving is incredible here all year around.
Looking for info about why visit Galapagos? An attraction that combines fun and education, the Interpretation Center of San Cristobal aims to introduce visitors to the rich history of the islands. The center was put together by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development, the Galapagos National Park management, and the Charles Darwin Foundation. Visitors exploring the center will learn many fascinating pieces of information about the island’s history. For example, the Natural History Room goes into an in-depth exhibit of the volcanic origin of the islands. There are other rooms dedicated to the island’s colonization, flora and fauna species, and conservation of the land.
MUSA (Underwater Museum of Art in Isla Mujeres): One of the most popular activities in Isla Mujeres is to visit MUSA, (Museo Subacuatico de Arte). You can tour the underwater museum by glass bottom boat to enjoy over 500 sculptures by the creator Jason deCaires Taylor. For a better experience, and to get closer to the sculptures, head on a snorkelling tour or go scuba diving. MUSA was created to encourage visitors to visit an alternative area around Isla Mujeres taking the pressure off the nearby reef. Underwater sculpture parks are created as tourist attractions, but they are also used as artificial reefs to help promote the growth of coral and the return of more marine life. A visit to underwater sculptures (by the same artist) is also one of the top things to do in Grenada, and the Bahamas. Find additional info on www.g9trip.com.
The most adrenalin-inducing thing to do in Singapore has got to be the G-Max Reverse Bungy, Singapore’s first ever bungy. Get launched skywards at 200 km per hour to a height of 60 metres and bounce for approximately 5 minutes. The experience is not unlike being an astronaut in a rocket launch as you sit in an open-sided ‘capsule’. Also, for a few extra dollars, riders get a T-shirt and a DVD recording of themselves in action, taken by an onboard camera.
