2020 has been a roller coaster of a year, which didn’t go according to anyone’s plan. So, if you had any plans to travel the world this year, they were probably ruined.
Due to the travel restrictions enforced because of the Covid-19 pandemic, traveling the world has become challenging. However, if you know which countries to check out, you can even have some fun this year.
That’s right! Though you will have to be more careful and won’t be as easy as normal, it is possible to visit some countries and have a nice vacation. Therefore, if you want to travel to another country in 2021, here are some that you should consider
You probably don’t think of Pakistan as a vacation destination but believe me; it is much more than what the media perceives it to be.
With some of the most incredible natural landscapes, lively and cultural cities, and extremely hospitable people, Pakistan is an incredible country. As far as travel restrictions are concerned, there are hardly any in Pakistan.
Anyone can travel to the country, and you won’t have to quarantine on arrival either. However, you will need to have a negative COVID-19 test.
Though there are many lively cities to visit in Pakistan, you should stick to the northern areas. There are several incredible peaks, waterfalls, valleys, and lakes in these mountainous areas of Pakistan. You need to check out the more popular spots like Naran, Kaghan Valley, Hunza Valley, and Swat.
Austria is one of Europe’s most beautiful countries, and it is an incredible country to visit in 2021. Though the cities in Austria are also quite vibrant, you should visit less crowded areas because of the pandemic.
Hallstatt is a romantic and small village on the western shore of Lake Hallstatt. It is located in the mountainous Salzkammergut region and is one of the country’s most peaceful places.
The 16th-century Alpine houses, romantic cafes, restaurants, and hotels of this small town are going to make you want to move in, and the majestic mountain on one side, and the Hallstatt lake on the other, make for an incredible view as well.
It would be best if you considered going on a hike to the Skywalk Hallstatt viewing platform, which is an incredible spot for stargazing. Therefore, remember to bring your best long-range scope when you are traveling to Hallstatt.
Locates in southeast Europe, near Bulgaria, Serbia, and Greece, North Macedonia is a considerably unknown country. However, it is one of the best places to visit this year because it has remained relatively safe from the pandemic and the travel restrictions are not too harsh.
If you want to check out the exceptional natural beauty of North Macedonia, you have to visit the Canyon Matka. Covering over 5000 hectares, this incredible gorge is located in the west of Central Skopje.
Since North Macedonia has remained relatively secluded from the pandemic, even visiting the cities is safer. Therefore, you should take some time to visit the incredible landmarks and ancient architectural sites of North Macedonia. Saint Sophia, an ancient landmark church filled with incredible artworks, is one of the must-visit sites in North Macedonia.
Samoil’s Fortress and Monastery St. Naum and The Millenium Cross are other popular destinations that you should visit in North Macedonia.
If you want to visit a destination with incredible beaches and sunsets, Aruba is an excellent destination. This amazing Dutch-Caribbean island has very little exposure to the pandemic, and it is quite safe for travel this year.
Furthermore, Aruba is known to be different from other Caribbean islands because of its dry climate. So, the weather stays nice and warm throughout the year.
The beaches in Aruba are truly incredible. You need to visit Eagle Beach, Baby Beach, and Arashi Beach while you are in Aruba. These beaches are perfect for participating in some fun water sports, and relaxing on the beachfront, and getting a suntan as well.
To experience the incredible natural beauty of Aruba, you should also consider visiting Arikok National Park.
If you want to find a country to travel to in the midst of a pandemic, you should look for small and secluded ones. Eswatini perfectly fits that description. If the name seems a little unknown, don’t worry, Eswatini is just Swaziland’s new name.
It is the smallest country in Africa, the most secluded continent in the world, and it is the perfect place to visit in 2021.
Located near Mozambique and South Africa, Eswatini has diverse wildlife and an incredible climate. More than 500 different species of birds and 107 mammal species can be found in this incredible country.
The country has seven nature reserves and three wildlife reserves, which are perfect for a Safari.
The Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, Mbuluzi Game Reserve, and Mkhaya Game Reserve are some of the best places to visit in Eswatini.
Iceland is one of the most incredible countries on planet earth. It has a unique landscape, and it has stayed relatively isolated from the pandemic. Though there are travel restrictions, and you will have to quarantine yourself when you reach the county, it is worth it because Iceland has some of the fascinating natural sceneries you can think of.
There is a lot of sea in Iceland, from black sand beaches to natural hot springs and majestic waterfalls. Moreover, it is one of the few places on earth where you can see the northern lights.
Therefore, if you are looking for a destination to visit by the end of 2020, Iceland is an excellent option.
Laos is an excellent place to travel in 2021 because it has remained relatively safe from the pandemic, and it is an extremely affordable destination. Therefore, if your finances are not that good after the pandemic, you can still travel to Laos.
Laos has something for every kind of traveler; however, it’s better if you stick with outdoor activities during the pandemic. You should visit Phu Chong NaYoi National Park and check out the Tad Sae Waterfalls as well. For a unique vacation, check out the Gibbon Experience, which is a resort made in treehouses.
