4 Unexplored Countries You Should Consider Visiting

There’s just something magical about places like Rome and Paris that makes us dream to visit once or twice in our lifetime. The culture, charm, and history of these places just draw all of us in. However, you also deal with crowds, overdevelopment, and droves of tourists in these locations. On your next trip out of Singapore, why not consider taking a break from the usual destinations, and head to any of these countries? They may be off the beaten path, but they also have a lot to offer.


  1. Bhutan

Bhutan is an astoundingly beautiful country that is home to incredible culture and art. It’s one of the most unique places in the world with archaic Buddhist monasteries, lush green landscapes, and a lack of commercialization or overcrowding.

The Himalayan country offers an incredible number of sceneries to see, especially if you’re interested in mountain treks. Its mountain treks are considered are one of the best in the world, and the sights it provide says it all. Paro Taktsang, the sacred Buddhist site that’s located on the cliffside, is one of the most visited spots in the country.

  1. Uruguay

With the many beautiful destinations to choose from in South America, Uruguay often gets lost in the mix. So start off your tour in this country in its capital, Montevideo, which is home to the nightlife scene, and a great boardwalk known as the Rambla de Montevideo.


The country is also home to beautiful beach areas like Punta del Este and Punta del Diablo. The former is known for its incredibly fresh seafood and great views that draws the wealthy vacationers in. The latter, on the other hand, is an astonishing coastal spot popular with backpackers, as well as those who are looking for a more luxurious beach vacation. Both beaches offer a relaxing vibe perfect for locals and tourists who want to unwind.

  1. Latvia

Although it’s smaller than most of its other European counterparts, Latvia also has a lot to offer with its breath-taking sceneries, and its capital city, Riga. Here you’ll find gothic architecture, old cobblestone roads, and a great restaurant and hip bar scene. So make sure that you spend some time walking around town to witness some of its beautifully preserved streets and buildings.

Your visit to Latvia doesn’t just end in Riga though. If you’re thinking of visiting during summertime, head to Jurmala to relax in the beautiful beaches, or to Kuldiga to stroll around the picturesque medieval town that everyone can enjoy.

  1. Malta

When travelling to the Mediterranean, Greece and Italy are the popular choices among travellers. However, the tiny country of Malta offers just as many breath-taking sights – minus the crowds. Malta is just south of Italy, and is considered as one of the smallest countries in the world. Valletta, the country’s capital, was once hailed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its age-old statues and buildings, and its atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re travelling back in time.

Visiting lesser-known destinations offer the same unforgettable experience as with the more popular travel spots. So consider travelling any of these places on your trip to have a refreshing travelling experience – and to stay away from the crowd.
