The COVID-19 pandemic has been brutal on all of us. The quarantine has driven us to make promises that we will travel far and wide as soon as the pandemic is over. We all have been looking at places that we would rather be right now than at home.
Now that people are getting vaccinated worldwide, there has been a glimmer of hope for the world to open up again. And with that our hope for traveling to new places is also surging.
This list will be taking the COVID-19 cases confirmed by these countries in mind while suggesting places to travel. Most of the countries in this list were deemed successful in handling pandemics or had fewer cases.
Without further ado, here are 3 places to travel to after the pandemic:
Gozo Island, Malta
Malta is one of the most underrated countries in Europe. This Mediterranean island nation has a lot to offer when it comes to scenic and sunny beaches with landscapes. Gozo is one of the three islands of Malta. Gozo is renowned for its diving spots, and some have even called it the diver’s paradise.
This island of Malta has plenty to offer. We would recommend you visit The Inland Sea, a hidden lagoon of seawater on the west coast of Gozo. This linked to the Mediterranean Sea through an opening formed by a narrow natural arch. It is a popular diving spot among divers and is close to the Blue Hole. You can visit the Azure Window (where GoT was filmed), Blue Hole, and The Inland Sea in a single day.
Milford Sound, New Zealand
New Zealand is another success story in the face of the pandemic. And you will love visiting this country if you love being outdoors. New Zealand is another island country on this list that has a lot to offer to visitors.
Milford Sound is a fiord in New Zealand and one of the most popular tourist destinations. It is located in the Fiordland National Park in the southwest of New Zealand’s South Island. When visiting Milford Sound, be ready to experience scenic beauty, including rolling waterfalls, the inky black sea, surrounding forests, and wildlife. Milford Sound is home to an abundance of aquatic life, including bottlenose dolphins, Fiordland penguins, seals, and even whales.
Paro Taktsang, Bhutan
Bhutan is the greenest country in the world. And if you have lived inside for a year, then I bet you will love visiting Bhutan. This small country has 60% of its landmass covered with forest. Bhutan also has the reputation of being the only carbon-negative country in the world. So be ready for some fresh air!
Paro Taktsang is a monastery located on a cliffside in the Paro Valley of Bhutan. Paro Taktsang has an excellent trekking trail that has scenic beauty all through the trail. The trail includes about two thousand steps from the bottom. Following the mesmerizing landscape of Paro Valley, trekkers are offered a sense of satisfaction and warmth when they reach the holy site of Tiger’s Nest Monastery.
