South Korea is a great blend of ancient and modern. To experience the vibrant metropolis, spend a few nights in the capital Seoul. This city is constantly on the move. Check out the dazzling shopping and gastronomy scene, go on the Demilitarized Tour (DMZ), go clubbing in Gangnam district and eat street food in tents with plastic tables and chairs with locals at 4 am. To have a better insight into the culture, get off the beaten path and visit the countryside. Sail to remote islands to get to small fishing villages, hike in the beautiful national parks, and visit peaceful Buddhist temples and archaeological treasures. Do not miss the Mud Festival in July to cover yourself in thick, gray mud!

5. Lithuania



Since Lithuania became independent from the Soviet Union in 1990, the country has gone through a great deal of modernization and development, yet it managed to preserve the old-world charm. Cozy little towns, cobblestone streets, beautiful churches, and national parks make it a great package for travelers who want to get off the beaten track. The capital’s old town district is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Have a stroll around the lively bars, restaurants, and museums to get a glimpse into the history and artistic heritage.

The vast savannas, pristine rainforests, mountains, rivers, and waterfalls are home to 800 species of birds and over 1000 tree species. Mount Roraima is the highest point on the Guyanese plateau and influenced such men as Charles Darwin and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

7. Lesotho



The Kingdom of Lesotho, home to 2million people surrounded by the Republic of South Africa, is vastly underrated. There are eleven border posts offering entry into the mountainous kingdom, so do not miss the opportunity when visiting South Africa. Lesotho offers amazing views to the rugged mountains, pony trekking on remote places, and community-based tourism gives a unique insight into the Basotho people’s culture.

8. Laos

Compared to its neighbors Thailand and Vietnam, Laos gets less attention and fewer visitors. Easy to access both overland and by plane, it does worth a visit. Check out the beautiful Buddhist monasteries, cruise on the Mekong, explore the colorful hill tribes in the lush green mountains, and hire a motorbike if you are up for the adventure. Finish the day with a bottle of Beer Lao, the best in the area!

9. Colombia
