Pay a visit to our neighbors, and enjoy some Canadian culture. Enjoy views from the CN Tower, get caught up in the excitement of a hockey game, or make the journey to Niagara Falls. Toronto is also home to a diverse range of cultures, which makes for some incredible food options.
For an incredible Thailand experience, we suggest heading to Bangkok for your next vacation. Bangkok is a very colorful city, with beautiful temples to visit, bars to enjoy (the Sky Bar was featured in the Hangover Part II), and famed for its incredible street food! A true feast for the senses.
The most popular destination in the Middle East, Dubai is a truly luxurious place to visit. Home to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, as well as the world’s largest shopping mall, and plenty of stunning beaches (some man made, some natural), there’s a real sense of grandeur.
The busy city of Beijing is a truly spectacular place to visit. There is plenty to see and do, from the Forbidden City to the ‘Bird’s Nest’ stadium that was built for the 2008 Olympic Games, and lots of green spaces throughout the city to relax in between sight seeing. You can also get a train to the Great Wall, and we think this Wonder of the World is a must see!
Whether you visit during the Carnival or not, Rio is a very vibrant place to vacation. Take an unforgettable cable car journey up Sugarloaf Mountain, visit Maracanã stadium and the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. The natural beauty of the area is breathtaking, with many miles of white beaches and two rainforests nearby.

Australia should be on everybody’s travel bucket list, and Perth is a great place to start. The capital of Western Australia, you can enjoy sandy beaches, and explore the bush and take in great views from Mt Eliza in King’s Park for your nature fix, or enjoy a drink at one of the bars in Perth’s small bar movement to enjoy the great nightlife.
You don’t need to leave the country for a great vacation. If you’ve never been to Orlando, there is so much to see and do that you’ll find yourself returning time and time again. From the Walt Disney Resort and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to Discovery Cove and the Harry P. Leu Gardens, there’s something for everybody.
Lord of the Rings fan? Then a trip to Auckland New Zealand is a must! Various day trips will take you to the Hobbiton movie set, where you can have your photo taken in front of a Hobbit Hole!
