Do you want to spend your weekend somewhere with your friends and family but you don't know where to go? Don't worry, I'm here to help you out— all you have to do is sit back, relax and finish this until you're done.

Cappadocia: Turkey

Cappadocia, an area in Turkey where entire cities have been carved into rock. Before sunrise, hundreds of hot air balloons are fired up, each taking off with about a dozen passengers for an hour or so of dawn-time hot air balloon travel, floating above and around the rock formations. Cappadocia is one of the world's most popular destinations for hot air balloon riding.

Benagil Sea Cave: Algarve, Portugal

Make sure to visit Benagil Sea Cave in Portugal. As you can see, it is breathtaking that you might want to stay there. The problem is that direct access is only possible via ocean, there's three options: peek through a giant hole into the cave, you can take a boat, or you can swim to get there. People say it's best to go there shortly before lunch time— morning light is not that great. What are you waiting for? Add this up in your bucket list!

Keukenhof Park, Holland: The Netherlands

Keukenhof, also known as Garden of Europe, is one of the world's largest flower gardens. According to the official website for the Keukenhof Park, approximately 7 million flower bulbs are planted annually in the park. It's located in South Holland in the small town of Lisse. It's accessible by bus. Keukenhof Park, Holland is open every year from mid-March to mid-May. 

Arashiyama: Kyoto, Japan

The most beautiful spot is not at the beginning of the path, but further away past Tenryuji Temple entrance, where bamboo groves grow further apart from each other, allowing it to become thick and beautiful. You can rent a bike, take a rickshaw ride or stroll the path (it will cost you nothing— just prepare yourself and your camera) to enjoy the beautiful sight. (:

Lavender Fields: Provence, France

Provence, France has long been loved for its beauty, especially it's lavender fields. Lavender is said to heal insect bites and burns as well as repel insects. You can enjoy the lavender fields by car, bike, or on foot. They bloom from June to August when it's harvested. Gotta pack up right now!

Glowworm Caves: Waitomo, New Zealand

Waitomo Glowworm Caves is a home to unforgettable sightseeing attractions. It's known for its population of Arachnocampa luminosa, a glowworm species. Legend of Waitomo began with the creation of limestone at the bottom of the ocean. This is a must-see destination!

Oia: Santorini, Greece

For those people who loves to travel and prefers a quiet village just to relax (we people are living in a busy city, working all day) well— this is for you! Oia is the most famous of all villages of Santorini. It is known for its peaceful life and fantastic sunset. The most beautiful and picturesque village. You can leave your car by the entrance and enjoy long walks!

Great Barrier Reef & Whitehaven Beach: Queensland, Australia

The Whitsunday Islands are all about relaxing. Let the calming force of nature take its course and surrender to a gentle sea breeze or for some serious pampering book in at a day spa at one of the islands resorts. If you must resurface, do it at the Whitsundays—namely Whitehaven Beach, often considered to be one of the world's most beautiful beaches! I agree.

Angkor Wat: Siem Reap, Cambodia

Angkor Wat is a temple complex in Cambodia and the largest religious monument in the world, on a site measuring 162.6 hectares. No matter how many Asian temples you've seen, this one will always be the grandest and the most breathtaking in the eyes of people, especially me, of course.

Socotra, Yemen

Socotra kind of looks like it was transported to Earth from a distant planet. The trees and plants on the island have evolved to suit its hostile climate and some varieties of plant are a staggering 20 million years old. It looks like a sci-fi film but it's actually not. This is real and it exists in Socotra, Yemen.
