Fresh from TripAdvisor: Don’t Miss It!

Well, i rarely checking my TA account, but few days ago I have been submitting my review while I checked around. What then I found? TA has been releasing Top 25 Destinations in the World and for Indonesia itself, they have released Top 10 Destinations in Indonesia.

I believe that you also would like to know more, therefore let’s move to the World Top 25 Destination. However, I will only share the Top 10 instead. For further details and information, please log on to TripAdvisor site by following this [link].

Top 10 Destinations in the World

1. London, United Kingdom

London

If you want to see London at its most spectacular, go in 2012. In June, the city will celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with all due pomp and circumstance (including a huge parade and a flotilla of 1,000 boats on the Thames). And in July and August, of course, the eyes of the world will be on London as it hosts the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Will it be crowded? Sure. But it’ll be unforgettable.
It is great to know that the number one list city that I would like to visit by next year is London. Hardwork and save more will be the best way to afford my trip. Hey, wish me luck!! ^^
2. New York City, United State of America
Here’s what we tell friends who are visiting New York for the first time: See the Empire State Building, Times Square and the museums first. Go to at least one Broadway show. But then pick a neighborhood—any neighborhood—to explore in-depth. It’s impossible to see all NYC has to offer in a single trip, but focusing on, say, African-American culture in Harlem or immigrant history on the Lower East Side can be quite rewarding.
Hmm,.. I have no idea for this. But as long as I know, New York City is one of the busiest city in the world. Never been there, but one day I would like to take my first step.
3. Rome, Italy
Rome is one of those cities you could spend a year in and still feel like you’ve barely scratched its surface. Amazing historical sites, mind-blowing art—and then there’s the food. Stop at the Forno in the Campo de’ Fiori for a fresh slice of pizza bianca (cut from a piping hot six-foot-long slab of it), buy some tiny strawberries in a street market, and make it your business to find the city’s best gelato. Someone has to do it.
I feel envy to my friend, she has just returned from her European trip. I have a strong will to take my step to European Countries as I have planned to take my Master Degree in one of those countries. My father was the biggest supporter, but now I have to re-organize everything and make some cash to live my life. Living in the other country is not that easy for me. Further, far from my family is the hardest part I should ready to face.
4. Paris, France
Everyone wants to see the major sights of Paris—and it’s true, it’d be criminal to leave town without visiting the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, etc. But to truly appreciate this city, you need to get away from the tourist sights. Plunk yourself down at a table in a small café, enjoy a glass of wine and watch le monde go by.
The most romantic city to visit. I think it will be worth to plan your romantic holiday to Paris. Hehe… Anyone?
5. San Fransisco, California
Who cares about a little fog (okay, a lot of fog) when there’s so much to do in San Francisco? By day, explore Fisherman’s Wharf and the Aquarium of the Bay, ride a cable car, and stroll around the Presidio; by night, have a fabulous dinner (at a Michelin-starred restaurant or a tiny place in Chinatown), then hit some of the best clubs on the West Coast.
No idea, 12 hours time different. I believe, it has its own uniqueness amongst these countries.
6. Marrakech, Morocco
It’s easy to lose yourself in the narrow, winding streets of the Medina—and we mean that both literally and metaphorically. Smell the spices in the air, brush up on your haggling at a local souk, then sip mint tea in the Majorelle Garden. End your day lounging in the rooftop garden of your riad, watching the sun set over this timeless city.
7. Istanbul, Turkey
The city of Istanbul is a vibrant mix of many cultures, due in part to its location (straddling Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait) and, well, in part to its history of getting conquered. The Hagia Sophia, for example, was a church, then a mosque and is now a museum. You’ll spot Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman architecture around town.
I have been planning to fly to Turkey when I was in Berlin, since my friends told me that it costs around EU 200.00 to stay in Turkey for a week includes flight and accommodation. Hm,… It sounds good!
8. Barcelona, Spain
Architecture buffs should make a beeline for Barcelona. The medieval and Roman buildings in the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) provide quite a contrast to Antoni Gaudi’s fanciful architecture, which you’ll find all around the city. A visit to his still-unfinished Church of the Sacred Family (Templo Expiatorio de la Sagrada Familia) is a must.
What else?
Meeting the world famous foot ball players would be another reason to visit Barcelona.
Go Barca!! 🙂
9. Siem Reap, Cambodia
Most travelers don’t come to Siem Reap because they’re dying to explore Siem Reap—they come to Siem Reap because it’s the closest city to the amazing Angkor Archaeological Park. And Siem Reap is absolutely fine with that. In fact, it’s a bit of a tourism boomtown. You’ll find a wide range of hotels, restaurants and nightclubs here, many of them brand-new.
For South East Asia, I really want to have a good chance to spend my holiday sometimes. My friends told me that it is worth to visit and the heritage will be the most interesting site to capture some photos.
10. Berlin, Germany
Berlin is a multi-faceted city. So feast your eyes on modern architecture, then visit a Baroque palace. Spend the day at one of the world’s finest zoos, then spend the evening listening to one of the world’s finest orchestras. Most travelers make a point of taking in more serious WWII-related sights as well. TripAdvisor travelers give particularly high marks to the grim but thorough and thought-provoking Topography of Terror exhibit.
I have been in love with Berlin. My first visit was in 2009. Big city with a comfortable area to walk or to take public transportation. U-Bahn is one of my favourite mass transportation while Alexander Platz gives me another view of this big city. Witnessing the changes that left to the present time. Definitely will be back!

Alright, I guess it is enough for now and I will be continuing to share about Top 10 Destination in Indonesia. Hope you enjoy it and see ya…

Thank you for reading ^^
