My Top 10 Summer Destinations

Hello my pumpkins!!

Today I am sharing with you my top 10 summer destinations. I always look forward to summer because I tend to travel a lot and I love traveling, I love discovering a new culture and I always up to new adventures!!

I most probably will do a part 2 for this, cause there are still endless of countries/cities I dream of visiting in Summer.

If you wish to know what are my top summer destinations then keep on reading but don’t forget to check out my newest movie review: Game Night [2018]

Greece, Crete

If you want really want a quiet and chill summer destination, I definitely recommend Crete in Greece. It’s a gorgeous island, the sea is unbelievably blue, the mountains are breath-taking and the city is out of this world, I really loved the architecture. Both my sister and I think it is a gorgeous island to visit!

Of course, while you’re in Crete, don’t hesitate to stay in Athens for a day. The beautiful monuments and historical places make it a must-visit!

Bodrum, Turkey

I went to Bodrum last summer and oh my god, let me tell you, I never thought Turkey would be THAT beautiful, especially Bodrum. Of course, I really recommend the hotel “Nikki Beach” if you want to spend an amazing time: the spa is amazing, the lounge is on point with the sunset view and the sea is so clear. The city itself is amazing as well and it is lit at night.

I think Bodrum is great to relax during the day and amazing to party at night.

French Riviera, France

I only went to the French Riviera when I was a kid with my parents so I don’t really remember it but it’s definitely an area I want to visit as a grown-up. My sister plans on going there this summer, she will rent a car with her friends and visit this gorgeous area. I think for summer plans, that one is AMAZING! Road Trip with friends on the beautiful French coast, there’s nothing better!

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka was one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever been to and I definitely recommend it if you are looking for adventures and for a new culture to discover!

I went there in December but I know that it’s very hot there in June/July/August which makes it a perfect summer destination!

In case you decide to go there, don’t go just in one city, try to visit as many cities as you can because Sri Lanka is gorgeous from A to Z.

Santorini, Greece

An island perfect for partying with a gorgeous architecture. I cannot get over how beautiful this island is, the houses are unique and the sea is beautiful, I am dying to go there. It also seems like an amazing place to relax!

Andalusia, Spain

Andalusia is a gorgeous area in Spain perfect for hot days and rich in culture!! When I went there in September, it was still very hot and honestly, I was amazed by it, especially Seville. Seville is the perfect city to go shopping, honestly. Andalusia has also a lot of beautiful secret gems [Like Cordoba] so don’t hesitate to rent a car and visit this beautiful Spanish area!

Aya Napa, Cyprus

If you live in Lebanon and cannot afford to go very far, Cyprus is honestly the perfect destination for you. It’s as heavenly as any Greek or Spanish Island, and it is quite cheap, I mean the food and shopping!

The two cities I visited it are Paphos and Aya Napa. I really loved Paphos as it is perfect for relaxing  but Aya Napa was my favorite!

Aya Napa is perfect for partying. There, you party all day, all night. Moreover, the beach is AMAZING and there are a lot of fun activities to do.

Paris, France

Paris is a must-visit during all seasons, but I think it is very enjoyable in the summer. I think Paris is mainly a top summer destination for me because of Disneyland, I honestly love Disneyland, I never get bored of it, I try to go there every year because it is my happy place! Plus, Paris has a lot of amazing touristic places and gorgeous narrow streets!

I spent a lot of my childhood there but I will always love it!

Italy

I’ve only been to Italy once and I visited only Rome but I can tell you that Italy is a must-visit in Summer. I think if you go there, you should definitely visit several cities like Rome, Florence, Verona, Cinque Terre and Milano. These 5 cities really inspire me and look amazing to me

I recently watched “Letters To Juliet” and omg this movie made me wanna go to Verona!!

But, I think Italy is also one of those countries where you have to visit several cities!

Dubrovnik, Croatia

I’ve never been to Croatia so I don’t really know where the best city to stay in however I heard really good stuff about Dubrovnik and honestly, I am so tempted to go there, it looks like a gorgeous city!

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading and if you did, don’t forget to give this post a ‘like’ and to follow my blog [you can do that by email].

    • Joy🌻
      April 9, 2018 / 9:57 pm

      It is a beautiful country!!

  21. May 14, 2018 / 4:04 am

    Croatia is a hidden gem or maybe a tad less known. Sri Lanka is magnificent but I prefer Kerala and other destinations in India as the culture, temples, architecture is unmatched!

    • Joy🌻
      May 14, 2018 / 7:47 am

      Never checked those cities in India, but I’d love to go to India in general. Maybe my next destination!!

  22. May 29, 2018 / 3:56 pm

    Ah you sound so similar to me. I love traveling too! & I love Letters To Juliet, it’s such a beautiful film makes me so happy! & Same, I have to go to Disney at least once a year whether that’s Disney World or Disney Land Paris (or any Disney Land). It’s just the happiest place. I’m going to Italy this year, but I’ve never been before. Turkey looks beautiful, I would never have thought to go there for a Summer vacation but you may have swayed me. I’d also love to go to Santorini. I have a friend from Sri Lanka and she says just how beautiful it is, it’s 1000% on my bucket list. You are so lucky you’ve already been!

      Thank you so much!! Turkey is gorgeous, let me know if you end up going there!
