It’s fair to say that the world is pretty incredible. All you have to do is look at a map to see just how many places there are to visit in the world, and they are (almost) all ready to welcome their doors to visitors.
However, most tourists seem to follow the crowd and visit the same places. They become overrun with visitors, you have to tackle someone to the ground to grab a sun lounger, and you lose all sense of authenticity. So, you should swap these overrated tourist destinations for these hidden gems instead.
Swap Bali For Flores
Indonesia is hugely famous for those who want to travel across the globe and truly unwind from city life. Bali is a particular favorite for those wishing to explore Indonesia, but you’ll soon realize that you’re surrounded by other travelers, rather than the people who actually live in Bali.
That’s why you should give Flores a go. Located to the east of Bali, this beautiful island offers crystal clear waters, volcanic land, and beautiful lakes for you to explore. They even have Komodo Island, which is full of Komodo dragons!
Swap Cinque Terre For Atrani
Cinque Terre is one of those places that you see everywhere on social media. The brightly colored houses that sit atop the cliffs overlooking the ocean look out of this world, but it’s not the only place on this earth that offers such a thing.
Atrani is the kind of place that is hidden to outsiders, which means that you’ll be mingling with the locals in no time. This cliffside town offers beautiful beaches, colorful houses, traditional restaurants, and more than enough for you to explore.
Swap Barcelona For Lisbon
Of course, we’re not telling you not to go to Barcelona. It is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, and the art is truly breathtaking.
However, Barcelona has become so overrun with tourists that they’ve actually had to put a cap on how many rooms hotels can sell, how many tours the guides can go on, and how many flights make their way into the city.
So, why not check out Lisbon instead? This hidden gem is actually the capital of Portugal and is equally as artsy. There are incredible buildings, baroque churches, and beautiful beaches for you to enjoy.
