By Soren Rivero


2022 is right at our fingertips, ready for us to snag and make it the best year ever. With the world opening up more and more, many opportunities are waiting for us to partake in when we feel ready.

If you’re making it a goal to travel more in 2022, you’ll want to start off the year with a bang by visiting some awesome locations. Here are 5 spectacular locations to start off 2022!


Thailand

A big recommendation that you’ll likely receive when visiting Thailand is to spend ample time out in nature, as the country has bountiful jungles, coastlines, rivers, mountains, and much more.

Along with its natural beauty, there are also thousands of temples scattered across Thailand. As a country that’s predominantly Buddhist, most of the wats (temples endorsed by the state) are Buddhist in nature. However, there are plenty of other religious temples in Thailand, such as those that represent Hindu and Islam religious practices.

The most remarkable thing about the temples in Thailand are how phenomenally constructed and decorated they are. They’re super intricate, highly colorful, and expansive. Some popular ones are White Temple in Chiang Rai, Sanctuary of Truth in Pattaya, and Tiger Cave Temple in Cravi. Visit any of these temples and you’ll find yourself leaving with a newfound appreciation for life, as well as much needed hope going into the new year.


Guatemala

Guatemala is a country in Central America that shares borders with Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and Belize. The country is known for its rainforests, ancient Mayan ruins and sites, and an ample supply of volcanoes. Those who have a heart for adventuring should definitely visit Guatemala, as the combination of the deep rainforests and magnificent volcanoes will surely make for an unforgettable experience.

Arguably the best volcano to visit in Guatemala is Volcan de Acatenango in Southern Guatemala. This is the country’s most popular hike, famous for its outstanding outlook over the dozens of other surrounding volcanoes. The real treasure here is the volcano, Fuego, which can be seen (from a safe distance that is) occasionally erupting hot magma thousands of miles into the sky.


Argentina

Argentina is home to a popular set of glaciers, namely Perito Moreno which resides within Los Glaciares National Park on the southern tip of Patagonia. So popular has this sight become, that in 1981 it became a UNESCO World Heritage Site that draws in millions of visitors every year.

Aside from that, there are deserts, mountains, and other natural terrains farther up north in Argentina. Those who are sensitive to the cold might find a better time up there. Either way, a trip to Argentina might be all that you need to start off an amazing new year!


Dubai

One of the most peculiar sights in all of the Middle East is the jaw-dropping city of Dubai that combines 21st century technology with the natural desert landscape.

Despite it looking like a futuristic metropolis, this mystical city has a pretty rich and inspiring history. As of now, Dubai is a city that lights up the night sky with its hundreds of skyscrapers, myriad flashing lights, and bustling nightlife.

Before you go clubbing, make sure to shop to your heart’s content. It’s one of the city’s most prized activities, something you’ll find locals and visitors alike partaking in.


Ireland

Ireland is a city of both mysticism and appreciation. Much of the country's history is rooted in ancient cultures that date way back into the Earth's very early ages. To no surprise, this means that Ireland is a place full of knowledge and peculiarities that many people from across the world come to learn about. In fact, Ireland is even home to the world's oldest bar!

Arguably the most eye-catching thing in Ireland is the 5,200 year old passage tomb, Newgrange, located in Ireland's ancient east just a few miles away from Dublin. This magnificent work of art has history that's a bit of a paradox – some of its history is very clear, while other parts remain completely unknown. One thing we do know about Newgrange, however, is that it is the world's oldest solar observatory.

Visitors can take a trip to Newgrange to get a slight sense of how ancient art and architecture was formulated way before modern technological advancements. Even if you don't get a chance to visit Newgrange, the country of Ireland is still a fantastic place to explore with its endless castles, rolling hills, and delicious brews.
