• Travel hot spots off the beaten path

    2011-01-25

    Forget the typical vacation spots where tourists seem to pile up, as there are plenty of other places on the planet where travelers can go to have an intimate, memorable experience in a gorgeous locale. Travel + Leisure recently unveiled its list of the best destinations in the world for the upcoming year.

    The ultimate spot for intimacy is in Lhasa, Tibet, according to the news source, where one can find peace as just a tiny spec in the Himalayan expanse. This is a remote location towering approximately 12,000 feet over the earth, making it one of the tallest cities in the world. There are a number of luxury hotels in Lhasa where tourists can enjoy a quiet stay.

    Those who want to make the trip to Africa should try on Zambia for size. Much of the land is undeveloped, leaving visitors to discover a vast area of natural beauty. Tours along the Zambezi River will afford vacationers a striking opportunity to catch a glimpse of elephants, leopards, giraffes and other animals in their natural habitat.

    Considering a trip down under? Try out the region of Kimberley, which is located in the northwestern region of Australia. Explore the multitudes of Aboriginal attractions and make sure to include a stop at the Montgomery Reef, where green sea turtles, sharks, rays and other marine life call home.
