Turkey

 

Moving on to another country in Asia, we move on to our fourth destination which is Turkey, A truly amazing country situated in the crossline of the Balkans, Caucasus, the middle east, and the eastern Mediterranian making it a boiling point for the cultures of the orient and the modern.

 

Turkey is pulsating with amazing places to visit where the multicultural nature of turkey pops out such as the drawings inside the truly captivating Hagia Sophia, the sky blue tiles of the Blue Mosque, Topokipa Palace & the amazon scenery of mount Nemrut

 

Moving on to the many amazing activities of Turkey we just referred to, don worries you will be spoiled for choices. One of the outdoor activities turkey is famous for is the hot air balloon trips from Cappadocia that not just offer you a unique chance of viewing the city from the clear blue skies of Cappadocia, it also creates a wonderful scenery of colorful and different patterned balloons coloring the clear blue skies. Another Turkish delight ( Punt intended XD) is its mouthwatering dishes and tasty sweets. Tavuk Gusco, Firinda Sutlac, Asure, Baklava & Lokma are just some of those aforementioned delights that are must try the next time you are in Turkey.

 

 

Morocco

 

Moving a tad bit closer to the middle east we will now move into the white houses and sear breezes of Agadir of Morocco. Morocco is situated in the extreme ends of North Africa and shares borders with Spain. Morocco is truly one of the most beautiful places you can visit in the ebony continent and the beauty of the city is equally matched by the beauty of its locals, aka the Moroccans.

 

Filled to the brim with amazing places to visit and wonderful sites it would be hard to mention them all in this article, we can however tell you the best and most popular sites among them. The tricky thing when it comes to Morocco is that every city has more than one thing to offer to its visitors which is definitely a plus but might prove somewhat overwhelming. 

 

Some of the aforementioned sites would be the ancient tanneries of Fez, still being used to make that marvelous Moroccan leather bags & traditional footwear, the babouche. Another handful of the great site would be the Al Quaraouiyine mosque, the city of Fez, Essaouira, Chefchaouen & Merzouga to name a few

 

 

Oman

 

Moving on to the Gulf Area, more specifically the country Oman wedged between Yemen & the UAE and bordering the Arabian Sea, Persian Gulf & the Gulf of Oman. Oman might just well be one of the most family-friendly getaways or vacation destinations for families, starstruck lovers, and newlyweds alike. The best time to visit Oman would be between October to April when the weather is more warm than scorching hot.  

 

The amazing places to see in Oman are numerous and all equally great some of which are the Misafat Al Abryeen, Masirah Island, Bhalah Salalah, Nazwa, Wahiba Sands & more. Another aspect in which Oman distinguishes itself from the remaining gulf countries would be its unique position as being the only GCC country that has access to a sea, meaning plenty of dishes and delicacies to choose from such as Makboos, Halwa & Harees.


 

 

Kenya and Uganda

 

Kenya and Uganda are two of the most captivating countries of Africa and truly summarise what being from the ebony continent is all about, Family, treasurable moments & good company all mixed in with a sense of Adventure. Kenya is situated in the East of Africa while Uganda is located in the east of Africa and to the west of Kenya.


If anything Kenya & Uganda is known for than its definitely the amazing wildlife safaris and many game parks,  most popular of which are the Masai Mara National reserve, Amboseli National Park, Lake Nakuru national park, Lake Mburo National park, Kibale National park & Rwenzori Mountains National park to name a few. Uganda is also popular for its gorilla trekking trips which are prominent in Lake Kibale & Rwenzori National Parks

Outside of the Safaris these two countries offer you to get to know the local markets, culture and indigenous tribes such as the Massai &  who are more than welcoming & ready to share their colourful & wonderful heritage with you.

The optimal time to visit Kenya would be from July to September and not just for the weather but also because it perfectly coincides with the great migration of wildebeests & Zebras, which is a sight to behold. As for Uganda, the optimal visitation time would be June to September, which although is considered the peak time for visitations in Kenya but don't worry the cross won't be overwhelming at all.
