The earth is an amazing place with countless attractive destinations with beautiful sea, rivers, waterfalls all around the world. In this post, we have consolidated for you the top 10 must “sea” destinations in the world.
There is research which claims that people who spend money on collecting experiences derive much more satisfaction and happiness than those who invest in materials/ things. Experience and memories may be intangible unlike material goods, but they may actually open up our eyes and shape us into a more beautiful person inside- out with the knowledge and first-hand experience of the outside world. At the end of the day, when you finish walking your life journey, you would want to soak in reminiscence of the beautiful precious memories of you and your loved ones experienced, instead of the recollection of the satisfaction you felt when you first landed your hands on the latest- trend branded bag you had been dreaming about, or the luxury car that others admire. All these desires you had for materials suddenly can just become so insignificant and vanished completely. Indeed, life is certainly about memories and not diamonds. You may possess replete wealth to buy every materials you desire of, but those materials would not always guarantee you lasting happiness. Hence, grab your luggage and enhance your life now with travelling.
Traveling is not cheap. The world is not small. There are so many wonderful places in different parts of the world.

Venice, a beautiful city built on waters. Relish the romantic moment on the gondolas while you glide past the colourful architectures. I believe Venice is in many couples’ travel destination wishlist.
2) Honeymoon at Maldives’s Seavillas
Prestige tropical beach with crystal clear sparkling warm waters. Sunny climate. This little island at the Indian Ocean has many luxurious over- water sea villas ideal for honeymooners.
Maldives sea is replete with marine life and offers excellent visibility up to 70 feet or 20 metres down. . That being said, you have high opportunities meeting lots of adorable marine creatures such as the dolphins, turtles and gigantic creatures such as the whale shark, manta rays, moral eels, other sharks (leopard shark/Scalloped Hammerhead Shark/Blacktip Reef Shark/Grey Reef Shark/White Tip Reef Shark).
At night, you may even witness the glowing seas, like the twinkling stars in the sky, from July to February. The blue glow is emitted by plankton which uses its glow to intimate or distract their potential predators, or or to attract larger predators of their predators. This in turn aids them in destroying the predators that threaten them. This phenomenon occurs under agitation. For instance, when the waves crash onto the shores or by humans paddling the waves.
3) “Sea” the unique Iceland
Pristine nature, immaculate scenery, lively locals. There’s none other untouched beauty like here on earth anymore. Iceland is a heaven on earth. It is blessed with many stunning majestic waterfalls, slumbering volcanoes, hot springs, glaciers as well as rich wildlife.

The whale species can be found in Icelandic seawaters include the largest animal ever lived in the world, that is, the Blue Whale, Fin Whale (2nd largest mammal lived on earth), Humpback Whale, Minke Whale.

Icelanders, ironically to their name, are not as cold as ice. They are very warm and kind people. Iceland is voted as the safest country in the world!
Just to share some interesting facts about their diets. Their restaurants serve whales meat. There are also other quite unusual menu items such as Svið (Singed and boiled Sheep Head), Hrútspungar (Rams testicles),Horse meat, Hákarl (Cured Shark), Skata (skate).

For nature and wildlife lovers out there, Iceland is one of the best travel destinations you must “sea” and travel to for a holiday.
4) “Sea” the abundant wildlife at South Africa
The mention of South Africa instantly reminds you of Safari tour. Have an intimate close-up encounters with various wild animals. There are many private lodges choices for an unforgettable experience. Also check out precarious hippos and crocodiles upclose from a platoon boat or even a kayak. At Cape Town, one of the top things to do is to take a cable car up the Table Mountain and abseil down. The abseil is the world’s highest commercial and is 112 metres long.

Do note that this is only do-able and relatively safe during the drier periods, from May to October, or you may be pushed out of the cliff.
And, believe it or not, in Zambia, you can have a (I assume rather safe) stroll with the Cheetahs which are associated with speed and excellent hunting skills.

There are many other exhilarate activities such as Gorge Swing, Bungee Jumping, Hydrospeeding, River Boarding and other adventure activities.
