Now, get ready to be taken on a journey across the world throughout four of the most unknown, and yet so beautiful, destinations.
PLACES MOST TRAVELLERS DON’T KNOW ABOUT
Golf Hotel Murhof, Austria
Golf Hotel Murhof spans approximately 42 acres, and it is located right next to the River Mur. The whole property is immersed in nature, and it is perfect for those who want to relax and unwind as it presents a well-equipped spa.
The Twelve Apostles, Victoria, Australia
This is a collection of limestone located off the shore of Port Campbell National Park, in Victoria, Australia. The twelve apostles were formed over time by erosion. Extreme weather conditions and waves crushing on the stone dug in the limestone; to the point today we can find caves, arches, and strangely shaped rocks.
Kyoto Garden Ryokan Yachiyo, Kyoto, Japan
This hotel is a hidden gem in the beautiful historical city of Kyoto. It features a traditional Japanese deco with wooden pavements, paper-sliding doors and peaceful gardens surrounding the building. It is the best place to stay if wanting to experience a true local atmosphere.
Zalipie village, Poland
Zalipie is a small town located 68 km east of the regional capital, Krakow. This village is absolutely unique in that all the cottages—people’s home— are painted with decorative motives. The place is definitely one-of-a-kind.
