In the “Oscar” of travelers, the US News & World Report ranked the best places to travel in the world. From the Great Barrier Reef in Australia to Patagonia Argentina, there is a trip for all tastes. If you are looking for places to spend your vacation, you will surely leave here with good inspirations.
If you have a tighter pocket, it is worth leaving in the list of vacations the options closest to Brazil – such as Argentina, the Caribbean and even Europe’s destinations (there are tickets on sale all the time on sites like Best Destinations, Promo Tickets and Must-See Tickets ). If you can abuse your budget a little more, we highly recommend destinations like Bali, Australia and Bora Bora. It all depends on your travel style, how many vacation days you will have, but there are options here for all types of people.
Check out only the best places to travel in the world:
1. The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Among the seven wonders of the world and UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, the Great Barrier Reef is a place that needs to be seen as soon as possible. This is because the site is facing a severe risk of coral bleaching, due to the rise in ocean temperatures. According to the US News report, it is a trip worth taking soon, as corals as seen today can quickly disappear. Sad, isn’t it?
How much does it cost and how to plan a trip to Australia?
I lived in Australia for two years and I can say that it really is one of the best places in the world to visit. The good news is that you can find good deals there, especially with the new LATAM flight (SP, Rio to Melbourne). The ideal is to spend two or three weeks there.

What to do in Cairns, Great Barrier Reef: Dive, of course! But make no mistake, the corals near the city of Cairns are not cool and are already going through this bleaching process, in addition to being crowded with tourists. It is worth taking a boat trip or taking a small plane to go to the islands a little further away. Then, drop off to see the incredible Whitsundays and drive to Brisbane or Sydney.

3. Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The small island of Bora Bora, located in French Polynesia, came in third this year. It is not for nothing: the paradisiacal beaches, are the ones that we only see in films that are so singular and unique. Nowadays, lodges and large resorts have occupied the island and bring a super structure for tourists who can invest a little more on vacation.

Even after Brexit, London is one of the destinations that need to be put on your list. First, because after the European Union leaves two years from now, visas can be more complicated to obtain. Second, because Libra has been at its lowest value since 1984. Worth the visit!

If you can’t be there on the date, the city is still worth the visit. Getting to know the White House and the city’s sights is like being at House of Cards.
20. Grand Canyon National Park, USA
More than five million people pass through the Grand Canyon each year! No wonder, the beauty of the place is stunning and is close to Las Vegas.
21. British Virgin Islands, Caribbean
Hey! Another destination we have the complete itinerary at Viva o Mundo. The beauty of this archipelago is unparalleled, crystal blue waters, unforgettable dives and a contagious top.
The best way to get to know the BVI’s is to rent a boat. If you want to stay on a boat with Brazilian crew – and the best in the Caribbean – just meet the incredible Ocean Eyes Experience charter .
