Leaving your home country on a vacation, and sampling some of the wonderful experiences that the world has to offer, is always a welcome refresh to the system. However, with a lot of the more popular destinations, the bustling tourist trade has completely smothered the more genuine, undiluted aspects of the culture. Here, we’ll list some of the criminally underrated travel destinations, where you can get a real taste of the spirit of the country.

South Korea
Sandwiched between the popular destinations of China and Japan, South Korea is overlooked all too often as a travel destination. While it’s smaller, and to many people, seems less exotic than other east-Asian countries, the nation is full to bursting with adventure. South Korea has a temperate climate and drastically different seasons, allowing for a wide range of activities. There’s a large range of mountains just outside of the nation’s capital, Seoul, and surrounding rocky peaks make it a popular destination for avid rock climbers. If you’re visiting Seoul, and you think you can manage it, try to get out into the foothills for the sunrise. The way the early morning fog rises slowly from the peaks of the mountains makes for a truly breath-taking sight, not to mention a once-in-a-lifetime selfie opportunity!

Just north of the US, Canada is often overshadowed by the size and diversity of America, along with its many iconic cities. However, if you ask a few seasoned travellers, they’ll tell you that the States’ neighbour to the north has far more to offer. Canada has some of the most intriguing and cosmopolitan cities you can find anywhere in the world, gorgeous summers and intense winters, and no matter where you are, you’re going to be surrounded by miles of sprawling natural beauty. If you’re curious about seeing this unique country yourself, start looking for some flights and apply for an ETA for Canadahere. Whether it’s the sprawling metropolis of Toronto, the bohemian charm of Nanaimo, or the potent history of Newfoundland, there’s a world of adventure to be had in Canada. Jump right in, and you certainly won’t regret it!

Wales (UK)

Many travellers these days will tell you that if there’s an adventure capital of Europe, it has to be Wales. While it’s pretty much essential that you travel in the summer to avoid the grim British weather, seeing Wales is an experience that most people won’t easily forget! With its rugged, untamed coast, the breath-taking mountains of Snowdonia, and hiking trails that can last days, Wales is the perfect destination for travellers who like to get off the beaten track, and closer to nature. If you’re planning a trip to Wales, the one attraction you really need to see is Bounce Below. Inside a massive underground cavern, you’ll be able to traverse the huge via ferrata, ride on indoor ziplines, and have a bounce on the largest underground trampoline in the world. Just outside of it, adrenaline junkies can have a ride on the world’s fastest zipline.
