Five Incredible Destinations For Millennials

Five Incredible Destinations For Millennials

As most people likely know, Millennials are individuals born from 1981 to 1996. These are usually tech-savvy, socially conscious, inclusive people who value experiences more than material possessions and look to defy established traditions. They are also lifelong learners and focus on well-being. Here are five spots on the planet we suggest those who fit this bill should travel to, naturally, if their budget permits.

Bali – Indonesia

Called The Island of the Gods, Bali is one of the tiniest Indonesian islands, from a pool of around seventeen thousand. It is a spiritual place for Hindus and is a paradise on Earth, packed with volcanic mountains, temples, gorgeous waterfalls, rice fields, and luxurious beach resorts. It is super popular with backpackers, particularly those from Australia, who love exploring it due to its proximity to their native land.

Without question, Bali is a location that is home to a unique culture and houses various attractive festivals year-round, such as Tumpek Wayang, Galungan, and Nyepi.  These and others feature traditional dances like the fire one and the Kecak.

The island’s beautiful mountain scenery is a chief attraction for thousands of influencers who come to Bali to photograph themselves with some of the most stunning pieces of art Mother Nature has ever created. The cuisine here is top-notch, surfers love the waves at Nusa Lembongan, and the Gili island’s pristine beaches are not to be missed.

Kyoto – Japan

Japan is a fascinating country with a distinctive culture that has created works of art that have puzzled and stunned much of the Western world. Kyoto is considered the heart of this densely populated island for those living in Japan, despite many Westerners associating Osaka and Tokyo first with Japan.

Anyone with even a fleeting knowledge of history knows that Kyoto has played a vital role in developing this nation. The literal translation of this name is Capital City, which stems from the fact that emperors ruled Japan from here until 1869. Hence, it gives invaluable insight into Buddhist and Shinto religious practices, loaded with temples and shrines worth visiting. Some of its awe-inspiring sights include the golden pavilion of Kinkaku-Ji and the orange Torii gates of Fushimi Inari.

The downtown section of this city has multiple tourist areas, with Pontocho Alley and Gion drawing much interest and Downtown Kyoto appearing more modern than most non-Japanese people would expect to see.

Las Vegas – United States

Nevada legalized gambling in the 1930s, and during the middle of the 1900s, this US state also began its hotel expansion, which led to the creation of Sin City as we know it now. While games of chance still play a crucial part in why many people come to Las Vegas, the appearance of online casinos that accept credit cards has dramatically nullified the need for games of chance lovers to go to Nevada’s most populous city to find out if Lady Luck is in their corner or not.

Today, Vegas more than lives up to the moniker the World’s Entertainment Capital, as it has venues like the Sphere, the Neon Museum, the High Roller wheel, the Mob Museum, the fountains of Bellagio, loads of amusement parks, premium artists performing residency shows, and much much more. It has something for everyone these days, and this is not an exaggeration.

Dubrovnik – Croatia

Croatia is a former Yugoslavian country that occupies a crossroad of Southeast and Central Europe, sharing a maritime border with Italy, whose coast lies on the Adriatic Sea. Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s most prominent tourist attractions, boasting a rich history from the seventh century.

The old town of Dubrovnik is an impressive Balkan location with three medieval gates, the Buza, Pile, and Ploce gate, and a vast pedestrian area. But, the primary allure for those who come here is the historic Dubrovnik Walls that began to go up in the 13th century, totaling almost two thousand meters in length. This city stood as the principal filming location of King’s Landing in the massively famous HBO TV show Game of Thrones. So, for fans of this series, exploring the Black Water Bay and the Red Keep are musts.

Those who do not care for GOT can have fun by kayaking in crystal clear waters, visiting the lush botanic gardens at Lokrum Island, or taking a boat tour to the Elaphiti Islands.

Crete – Greece

Virtually everyone who comes to Greece winds up adoring it. The people are generally hospitable, the climate is favorable, the food is delicious, and the views are breathtaking. While Santorini and Mykonos are the two most-talked-about tourist spots in the country, Crete should not be overlooked by anyone. It is the nation’s largest island, featuring heavenly beaches with pink sand, charmingly colorful old towns like Chania, and coastal towns/villages such as Agios Nikolaos and Agia Galini that are adventure-worthy.

Crete is a quality destination for Millennials because it has road trip potential, countless archeological sites, is not overly expensive, has wine tourism, three natural parks, thousands of caves, and many gorges. Therefore, it is ideal for hikers, and the food here is stunning. So there is much to see and many spots to explore. Swimming is an option, as is tasting fine spirits and meals. What is there not to love?
