The desire to travel is at an all-time high as the height of the summer vacation season approaches, and the world finally begins to recover from the pandemic.
According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, the number of foreign tourists who traveled in the first three months of 2023 was an estimated 235 million, 80% of the number of tourists who traveled in the same period before the epidemic. In addition, experts are cautiously hopeful about the future of the tourism industry.
Due to overwhelming demand, popular vacation spots often sell out early in the year.
There’s still much of the world to explore, which is great news.
Why Now Is the Time to Book Your Dream Vacation in Poland, According to a Travel Professional
Poland is ripe for exploration, from the picture-perfect main square of Krakow to its many woods, lakes, and mountains.
Hotel Verte, a new Autograph Collection resort in Warsaw (housed in a massive Baroque palace), opened its glittering doors in August. But staying at a palace-worthy hotel isn’t why you should travel to Poland in 2023. The goal is to express unity with a nation similarly stood by the Ukrainian people.
Due to its proximity to Ukraine (a country it shares a border with for more than 300 miles), Poland has taken in more Ukrainian refugees than any other country. Things start to look grim when you include falling tourist numbers (albeit they’re on the upswing again).
This is your chance to do some good while having a vacation, so book that trip to that palace in Warsaw, explore the vibrant cities of Krakow, Gdansk, and Wroclaw, and retreat to the quiet of Poland’s lakes, mountains, and forests. Western Australia’s Own Julia Buckley
Exmouth, Western Australia,
It will be the site of a total solar eclipse in April. The scenery also merits a close examination.
Back in April, as a rare total solar eclipse was visible over the northwest coast of Australia, hundreds of people flocked to the town of Exmouth and the greater Ningaloo Peninsula.
There were musical events, educational opportunities to learn about science and astronomy, and a three-day celebration, all of which took more than a year to prepare.
However, Western Australia has much more to offer than just awe-inspiring sights for 60 seconds.
It encompasses one-third of Australia’s landmass, from the bustling state capital of Perth to the wine country of Margaret River, the stunning clifftops of the Kimberley, and the quokka-covered Rottnest Island. Lilit Marcus
