Croatia, Europe

Across the Adriatic Sea from Italy sits the Balkan country of Croatia, known for its famed city of Dubrovnik—which Game of Thrones fans may recnognize as King’s Landing—and its many islands (1,246, to be exact). Translation: History buffs and thalassophiles (lovers of the sea) will thrive in Croatia. First, make a stop in Konavle to experience first-hand the city’s signature silk production and embroidery, as well as a honey tasting from local family farms; then, make your way to the island of Korcula that’s crawling with rich history seen in the architecture of one of the best-preserved medieval towns. 

Dubai, Middle East

Home to the tallest building in the world, as well as a bevy of luxury shopping destinations, Dubai is easily one of the most popular bucket-list locations—and it’s clear why. Night owls will covet the Middle Eastern city’s booming nightlife scene, while architecture aficionados will revel in Dubai’s skyscraper-clad skyline. From exploring the desert city’s red dunes via camelback to seeing the Dubai Fountain dance to music at the center of the city, a trip to Dubai is truly an escape from reality.

Morocco, North Africa

A must-visit destination, Morocco is composed of everything travelers desire: natural beauty, rich culture, and incredible food (anyone up for a cooking class?). The Sahara Desert, the Rif and Atlas mountains, and Todgha Gorge make up just a few of the North African country’s natural wonders; and the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca (the seventh largest mosque in the world) is among the many historical sites worth exploring. A crowd-favorite, Chefchaouen is known as The Blue City for its signature blue-washed buildings that make for the perfect photo opportunity, while the sacred Muslim town of Moulay Idriss and the country’s second largest city, Fes, both in Northern Morocco, offer visitors a cultural experience like no other.

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Last, but certainly not least, Mexico’s stunning San Miguel de Allende is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site and was recognized two years in a row by Travel + Leisure as one of the magazine’s favorite cities in the world. The award comes as no surprise considering San Miguel’s vibrant Spanish-colonial buildings, thriving restaurant scene, and numerous historical and religious landmarks, such as the Sanctuary of Atotonilco, known as Sistine Chapel of Mexico for its walls clad in intricate religious murals from the 18th century.
