One thing we understood is that everyone experiences places differently, and each of these experiences is valid. So if you have the ultimate list of experiences, it would be wrong to call them the best travel experiences in the world. These types of top life experience lists are completely subjective, and everyone will have a different list.
We see new places, meet new people, indulge in new activities. The experiences make us a different person. Traveling is not just about stepping on a landmark, but also breathing in the essence of the place. The good thing is that there are countless incredible things to see and life-changing experiences in this wide, wide world.
Snorkel in Bora Bora
There’s no need to carry your diving gear, just bring a mask and snorkel, dive into the shallow lagoon, and wait for a graceful giant to glide quietly past. The Bora Bora lagoon is home to hundreds of dazzling tropical fish, stingrays, manta rays and reef sharks. Bora Bora offers snorkelers of all levels an entertaining lagoon environment to explore.
There are coral gardens in the tranquil lagoon. And the other best snorkeling in Bora Bora will be appreciated by advanced snorkelers on a trip that will take you to meet the sharks off the reef in the deep, royal blue Pacific Ocean.
Salar De Uyuni Salt Flats
Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is considered one of the most extreme and remarkable prospects in all of South America, if not on Earth. Drive across the plains in a jeep and spend the night in a hotel made of salt, beds, chairs, tables, the lottery.
Salar de Uyuni, in the middle of the Andes in southwestern Bolivia, is the largest salt flat in the world. Its vastness can be seen from the central island of Incahuasi. Although wildlife is rare in this unique ecosystem, it is home to many pink flamingos.
Visit the Temples of Bagan
The thousands of temples spread across the Bagan, sometimes pagan plains are the most impressive testimony to the religious dedication of the people of Myanmar, and the rulers, through the centuries. Bagan was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan from the 9th to the 13th centuries.
This kingdom was the first to communize the area that is now Myanmar and established Burmese culture and ethnicity as well as Theravada Buddhism in the region. During this reign, as the city and kingdom grew in influence and stature, over 10,000 temples were built on the plains around the capital alongside the Irrawaddy River.
Hike the Tongariro Crossing
Tongariro National Park is New Zealand’s oldest national park and a double world heritage site. Tongariro National Park is rich in cultural identity and a dramatic, awe-inspiring natural backdrop. Unique landforms, including the volcanic peaks of Ngauruhoe, Tongariro and Ruapehu, ensure that the Tongariro Alpine Crossing is considered a world-famous hike.
The hike climbs through volcanic terrain, with old lava fields, walks through huge calderas and even past smoking, steaming volcano that only erupted six years ago. The park’s volcanic activity is constantly monitored, with warning signs at various points along the way, warning hikers of what to do if an eruption occurs.
Go on A Bush Safari
Botswana is the safari destination par excellence. Central Botswana is at its best in the summer of Africa when the region’s desert and salt pans become grasslands and parades of animals. A walking safari is a journey that takes you from the bike path into the bush on foot and immerses you in nature.
It is a safari that really enriches the soul as you are forced to move at the pace of nature and use all of your senses to attune yourself to the bush. It will include identifying tracks and bird calls, discussing interesting insects and plants as well as learning about the ecosystem in general from your guide.
