If you are visiting Singapore, then you must visit Malaysia too.
The world’s tallest twin structures, the Petronas Twin Towers, are LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE CITY KUALA LUMPUR, majestic by day and dazzling at night. Cesar Pelli & Associates designed the 88-story buildings, which are Malaysia’s proudest icon and architectural wonder, and are lined with an endless shopping and touring experience.
Twin Towers of Petronas Standing 452 metres tall, it held the world-record title until 2004, when Taipei 101, measuring 508 metres tall, was built. The Burj Khalifa in Dubai (opened in 2010) is still the world’s tallest building.
Maldives is nothing short of a paradise. The sparkling white sandy beaches, the pristine blue waters and luxury resorts make it a haven for travellers across the world. From adventure water sports to having a relaxing, laid back stay, Maldives offers an assortment of experiences to everyone.
The deep blue waters and beautiful beaches had been on my bucket list too. On my birthday, I decided to a trip to the Maldives with my childhood friends. We stayed at the beautiful Meeru Island Resort & Spa. This resort offers a number of tourist activities that includes water sports & excursions. This makes this place a great destination to add to your world tour checklist.
Dubai attracts visitors similarly like light attracts beetles. It is best to visit Dubai during the winter months from November to April as the summer heat is usually unbearable and the months of January and February experience strong traffic literally everywhere due to the Dubai Shopping Festival.
But while you are in Dubai, you must take your own sweet time to visit the ravishing Burj Khalifa and explore it to the fullest, making it a must-visit place for your world tour
Amsterdam is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The historic buildings, beautiful museums, canals and shopping districts draws visitors from all age groups, across the world. After a thorough research on Netherlands, I booked my tickets and packed my bags to the Venice of the North, Amsterdam!
During the beautiful stay in Italy for 4 Months and my visits to the most magnificent places. Here’s a list of places specially curated to be visited- Milan, Lake Como, Venice, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Cinque Terre, Rome

what’s Seville, the southern Spanish capital is famous for, of course it’s their historic churches and palaces, Moorish buildings, flamenco dancing, and more. If you’re interested in tapas or history, you cannot feel bored in this Andalusian city.
Seville is an amazing artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain. It’s a city full of architecture, history, and wonderful food. What else do you need for a perfect getaway in a wonderful city, I loved my visit to Seville, well who wouldn’t.
The city has some famous churches, winding streets, and great flamenco dancers. This is also a big university town and is extremely popular with people studying abroad. I love this city’s architecture and youthful vibe.
From the prohibition speakeasies to the bathhouses turned bars of Ancient Greece, a tribute to the perceptiveness of mankind is the art of serving alcohol at the most unconventional spaces and this liquor- filled perceptiveness is demonstrated best in the contemporary city of Budapest, Hungary.
Dilapidated pre-war buildings like banks, factories, warehouses or homes that were saved from heap scraps and turned into unique and extremely cool bars, now very famously known as the ‘Ruin Bars’ ,has taken over this city by a surge over the past 15 years and is a huge tourist attraction due to the generous pour of alcohol and to experience and witness the local histories of these bars.
Bhutan is a charming little country located in south- Asia right in between India and China. The entire country is covered in pristine pine forests and dotted by picturesque Buddhist monasteries, temples, Dzong fortresses and mystical mountains. The rich Buddhist culture is evident in their serene way of life and alluring environment that still remains untouched by technology and globalisation.
Every year for my birthday, I end up going on a trip to Bhutan. Last year for my birthday trip, I decided to travel to Bhutan from India and checked off one more destination on my world travel bucket list for ‘n’th time.
The beautiful tear drop shaped country of Sri Lanka is a favourite travel destination for Indians because of its sandy beaches, scenic landscapes, flavourful food, exotic wildlife and heritage structures.
Travellers come in for the never-ending beaches and fall in love with this infinite paradise that offers something for everyone in terms of fun, relaxation and adventure. I spent 7 blissful days holidaying in Sri Lanka, exploring Ella, a hill station and Mirissa, a beach town.
