In the “Oscar” of tourism, discover the best places to travel in the world. There are 25 places chosen on five continents. There are those close to Brazil to those on the other side of the planet. The list made by the U.S News & World report is complete and needs to be read.
In the “Oscar” of travelers, the U.S News & World Report ranked the best places to travel in the world. From the Great Barrier Reef in Australia to Patagonia Argentina, there is a trip for all tastes. If you are looking for places to spend your vacation, you will surely come out of here with good inspirations.
If your pocket is tighter, it’s worth leaving on the vacation list the options closest to Brazil – such as Argentina, the Caribbean and even destinations in Europe (there are tickets on sale all the time on sites like Best Destinations, Promo Tickets and Must-See Tickets). If you can stretch your budget a little more, we highly recommend destinations like Bali, Australia and Bora Bora. It all depends on your travel style, how many days of vacation you will have, but there are options here for all types of people.
Check out only the best places to travel in the world (best vacation spots):
The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Among the Seven Wonders of the World and UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Great Barrier Reef is a place that needs to be seen as soon as possible. That’s because the site is facing a severe risk of coral “bleaching” due to rising ocean temperatures. According to the U.S News report, it’s a trip worth taking soon, as corals as seen today can quickly disappear. Sad, isn’t it?
I lived in Australia for two years and I can say that it really is one of the best places in the world to visit. The good news is that you can find good deals there, especially with the new LATAM flight (SP, Rio to Melbourne). The ideal is to spend two or three weeks there.
Things to do in Cairns, Great Barrier Reef: Dive, of course! But make no mistake, the corals near the city of Cairns are not cool and are already undergoing this bleaching process, in addition to being crowded with tourists. It’s worth taking a boat trip or taking a small plane to the islands a little further away. Then, descend to discover the amazing Whitsundays and drive to Brisbane or Sydney.
Paris comes in second on the list made by the U.S News this year. Paris will always be Paris, one of the places you need to visit once in a lifetime. The city of lights will never cease to be one of the best places to travel in the world.
Paris is a more affordable destination than Australia, even more so if you find good travel deals (which weighs more heavily on the budget).
Things to do in Paris: After seeing the ‘musts’ like the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, walk to the bohemian St. German district, discover Shakespear & Co. Don’t miss a trip to the Palace of Versailles.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The tiny island of Bora Bora, located in French Polynesia, came in third place this year. No wonder: the paradisiacal beaches are those that you only see in a film, so unique and unique. Nowadays, lodges and large resorts have occupied the island and bring a super structure for tourists who can invest a little more in their vacations.
Things to do in Bora Bora: Stay in an overwater bungalow, dive and take a boat ride at sunset. Great destination for honeymooners!
Ah, Florence. For Viva o Mundo, it is one of the best places in Italy to visit. For the U.S News, too! In the city, you can feel the spirit that gave Italy the Renaissance era. Several art galleries, museums, keep the most famous and valuable pieces in the history of art. One of my favorite cities in Europe?.
Things to do in Florence: There, be sure to visit Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace and the Uffizi Gallery. It is worth it.
The frenetic city of Tokyo is always on the list of the best places to travel in the world. However, you need to be on a budget to visit the capital of Japan. The tip is to visit the country between the end of March and April, when the cherry trees begin to bloom.
What to do in Tokyo: Enjoy the good cultural “shock” of getting to know one of the most developed countries in the world. Visit Tokyo Tower, Ueno Park, the city’s many temples and, of course, enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine.
Cusco is the starting point for travelers who want to visit Machu Picchu, the mysterious city of the Incas built in the 15th century. It is from Cusco that trains leave that take most tourists to visit one of the most famous places on the planet.
A trip to Cusco is ideal for 7 to 10 days. The price varies according to the season, but it is one of the most affordable options on the list for Brazilians.
What to do: In addition to discovering the iconic Machu Picchu, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, discover historic and fascinating Cusco and its surroundings.
Even after Brexit, London is one of the destinations that needs to be put on your list. First, because after leaving the European Union, which should take place within two years, visas can be more difficult to obtain. Second, because Libra is at its lowest value since 1984. Worth the visit!
What to do: Reaching the land of the Queen requires visits to the most important museums in the world, such as TATE and the Natural History Museum. Plus, stroll the London Eye, see Buckingham Palace and of course take that classic Big Ben photo.
There is no way to spend a lifetime without knowing Rome. If you still don’t know one of the world’s richest cities in history, it’s worth planning now! The tip is to visit the entire city on foot, so you can feel the taste of being surprised at every corner with the architectural and historical wonders of the place.
What to do: One of the most fascinating cities in Europe. Going to Rome is like walking through the old center and being amazed at every corner with so much history. In addition to the classic Coliseum and Fontana di Trevi, don’t miss an incredible Gelato and visit the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.
New York, USA
The much loved Big Apple. The city that is beautiful in all seasons. From Broadway musicals to magnificent rooftops, from Highline to Central Park. Definitely, it is a city that can be known in several trips and the most impressive thing: traveling to New York is never tiring.
What to do: Have you checked our posts up there with the 12 sights of NYC? Once you get to know them, be sure to catch one of the incredible Broadway musicals.

Still in the US, but now on the beach. And it’s not just anywhere: it’s paradise! Maui is the island for those who want to enjoy the day relaxing on the sand as well as catching the best waves in the world! Maui is the second largest island in Hawaii and has attractions everywhere.
Cape Town, South Africa
The ‘Rio de Janeiro’ of South Africa, Cape Town is famous for its beaches and also for Table Mountain, one of the most impressive mountains in the world. There, wineries, safaris and even kite surfing are essential requests for those looking for the best places to travel on the planet.
Never mind that the city’s most famous attraction, the Sagrada Familia church, isn’t ready yet. It is still one of the most important and fascinating points of the lively Spanish city. Don’t miss out on ‘Las Ramblas” and if you still have the spirit, enjoy a ballad there.
Again, the land of kangaroos appears here! Now with Australia’s most touristic city. It goes without saying that the Opera House is amazing and that everyone should visit the country one day, right?
Rio de janeiro Brazil
And gave Brazil on the list! The wonderful city never leaves anything to be desired, especially in the year of the Olympics. If you already know Rio de Janeiro and want a different route to enjoy the city, we made a post with several tips to make the most of it there.
Yellowstone National Park, USA
Did you know it was the first national park to be created in the world? A good tip is to celebrate Yellowstone’s centenary on your next vacation. Created in 1874, it was only opened for tourism 44 years later. Nature is breathtakingly beautiful.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that Amsterdam is just the place for ‘legalized’ drugs. The city has much more to offer: don’t miss strolling the city’s canals, visiting the Anne Frank and Van Gogh museum. Enjoy a day at the Heineken Experience and be sure to visit the Red Light District.
Hong Kong, China
The city with the most skyscrapers on the planet, Hong Kong is a ‘must’ for tourists. Bruce Lee’s land guarantees many activities for those looking for the best places to travel in the world.
Who doesn’t dream of visiting the city in the history books where one of the oldest civilizations on the planet lived? Despite all the political problems, Cairo is still a city very popular with tourists.
Washington D.C, EUA
If you manage to visit the American capital on the 4th of July, you are a lucky person! On Independence Day, fireworks and parties light up the city. If you can’t be there on the date, the city is still worth the visit. Getting to know the White House and the city’s sights is like being in House of Cards.
Grand Canyon National Park, USA
More than five million people pass through the Grand Canyon each year! No wonder, the beauty of the place is stunning and is close to Las Vegas.
British Virgin Islands, Caribbean
Hello! Another destination that we have the complete itinerary in Viva o Mundo. The beauty of this archipelago is unparalleled, crystal blue waters, unforgettable dives and a contagious high spirits.
Alcides and Tatiana receive tourists on the boat to spend a week sailing through the Caribbean waters, with accommodation, food, drink and diving at will. All for a super cost-effective!
There’s no denying it, it’s one of the best places to travel!
Bali is for sure the most amazing destination we’ve ever visited. It’s a place where vacations are for everyone: whether you’re a couple, family, cool or not, surfer or just want to relax. Whatever! Bali is for everyone.
The Balinese people are unparalleled, the beaches are wonderful and the island’s energy is difficult to explain. To know everything, it takes months there. But with 20 days you can make a beautiful trip!
Oh, and detail! Bali is a soooo cheap destination to visit. To give you an idea, I stayed 1 month in Bali and spent around U$ 1,500 there (for ONE MONTH) – including accommodation, tours, mini-trips to other islands, internal transport and food.
San Francisco, California
San Francisco is increasingly on the world gastronomy scene. In addition, enjoying a day on the city’s cable cars and visiting Alcatraz prison are essential tours.
One of the most beautiful scenery in South America, the glaciers of Patagonia Argentina are worth visiting. The beauty is stunning and the cold… better be prepared!
Budapest is an amazing city. When we visited, we weren’t expecting as much. However, it is a capital that should definitely be on your list, especially if you plan to visit it in the summer.
. The city’s history is fascinating, as are its bridges, castles and attractions. The night life is very busy and to relax it is necessary to enjoy a day in the city’s thermal baths.
