Underrated Travel Destinations That Deserve More Attention


While everyone else is queuing up at the Eiffel Tower or fighting crowds in Venice, how about we take a little detour? Imagine places where the beauty and excitement of travel are still intact, but the crowds are nowhere to be seen. Sounds good, right? Let’s explore some underrated travel destinations that are both magical and mysteriously overlooked. 

The Azores, Portugal

Nestled in the mid-Atlantic, the Azores are a group of nine volcanic islands with dramatic landscapes, lush greenery, and enchanting blue waters. Often overshadowed by mainland Portugal, the Azores offer a plethora of activities for nature lovers, including whale watching, hiking mist-covered mountains, and soaking in natural hot springs. 

Luang Prabang, Laos

This UNESCO World Heritage site is a stunning example of the intersection of traditional Lao architecture and European colonial influences. The city is revered for its well-preserved architectural, religious, and cultural heritage. Visitors can experience nightly markets, orange-clad monks receiving alms at dawn, and serene boat rides along the Mekong.

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Plovdiv, one of the oldest cities in Europe, blends a rich tapestry of history with a youthful energy. Known for its Roman theater, colorful “Revival” architecture, and burgeoning art scene, Plovdiv is also a cultural hub with numerous festivals throughout the year.
