Float Through The Most Boat Friendly Cities

We did the research and asked our colleagues and found all the most boat-friendly cities in the world so you can sail away all day.

Published

on

Some people live in towns that are stuffed full of traffic. They spend day in and day out commuting to and from work. So when it comes time for vacation the last thing they ever want to see is a car. That’s understandable, but where can you travel to that will be relatively car-free? What other forms of transportation can add some wonder to your trip instead of dread?

Well, boats of course! Boats are relaxing to ride on and add a level of romanticism to wherever you visit. The only problem is most people have no idea what cities to go to if they want to spend more time on boats than in cars. Don’t worry, we did the research and asked our colleagues and found all the most boat-friendly cities in the world so you can sail away all day.

GIETHOORN, NETHERLANDS

Giethoorn was the first place we thought of because you can spend an entire vacation here only on boats. You may not see a car on your entire visit to this beautiful place. The waterways here run all throughout the town instead of roads which means you won’t even hear a dreaded car on your entire visit.

The serene quietness of the town around you will be very noticeable and not in a bad way. You will be able to relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery all while enjoying a utopian level of quietness that will really help you relax.

ANNECY, FRANCE

This town is known as the “Pearl of the French Alps” and when you enter Annecy it is very easy to see why. You will feel like your smack-dab in the middle of a fairy tale when you boat down the two canals that run through this town, just make sure to stop at a cafe or two along the way for a delicious cup of coffee.

The stunning surroundings of the canal will truly make this a trip to remember and you will wonder why more people aren’t talking about the unbelievable beauty that is the “Pearl of the French Alps.”

BANGKOK, THAILAND

Bangkok does have cars and tons of motorcycles, but if you want to get away from all that then hop on a boat in the tons of canals that run all throughout this giant city. The river has always been a great way to get around the city. While they may be a little bit dirty, that shouldn’t deter you. They’re still beautiful windows into the unbelievable past that makes up wonderful Bangkok.

FENGHUANG, CHINA

Head over to China’s Hunan Province to visit Fenghuang and marvel at how green the beautiful water is that this town is centered around. You can sit and stare at the beautiful water and travel it all by boat as well. If you’re feeling a little more daring and boats are starting to get boring then attempt to cross the river by foot as there is a bridge of stones that you can walk across, just make sure you can keep your balance.

The Best Spots In Europe For A Fall Getaway

Check out this list of the best places in Europe to have an amazing Fall vacation. 

Published

You do know you don’t have to take your vacation in the Summer, right? Mix it up a little bit, people! There are plenty of amazing places around the world that are truly beautiful in the Fall. And many of the best places are located in Europe. Check out this list of the best places in Europe to have an amazing Fall vacation. 

LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON, FRANCE

It doesn’t get much more romantic than France in the Fall. And the Languedoc-Roussillon area is significantly cheaper than many other areas in the country while still offering worthwhile experiences. Know for its horseback riding, La Narbonnaise Nature Park is a sight to behold.

While the city of Carcassonne will take you back to medieval times as it is completely surrounded by stone walls and castle-like elements. And if you’re an oyster fan, this is definitely the place for you. There are multiple Michelin-starred restaurants in the area.

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

Budapest is quietly one of the world’s great cities, and it’s especially nice in the fall. The temperature stays consistently in the 60s, perfect for just walking around and exploring. It’s an active city with plenty of lively markets, delicious wineries, and plenty of great food. Be sure to take a cruise of the Danube River while you’re there.

BAVARIA, GERMANY

Germany, in general, is a beautiful country during the fall. But more often than not people focus too much on Berlin. Bavaria is equally (if not more) beautiful and it’s slightly smaller so it can be a more peaceful and enjoyable vacation spot. You can catch an authentic Oktoberfest in Munich, enjoy the nature in Fussen, or take in the truly breathtaking sight that is the Neuschwanstein Castle.

And if you’re willing to devote an entire day to it, check out the Brewery Trail, a 20 mile stretch of 13 breweries serving classic German beers. 

GREEK ISLANDS

The Mediterranean is something everyone should see before they die. And if you’re looking for the perfect spot to vacation in the fall, the Greek Islands is the place to be. The ocean water might be a little too cold to swim in, but there are still plenty of cruises that take you around the islands and provide endless jaw-dropping views.

And the best part about visiting the Greek Islands in the fall? It’s their slow season so it will be much less crowded and the rates will be lower!

SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS, SCOTLAND

Scotland is one of the best places in the world to bundle up with a good sweater and just take it all in. The city of Glencoe is a must-see for the nature and scenery lover, while Inverness (the capital of the Highlands) provides more of a lively setting with various food festivals and fireworks shows (in addition to also being beautiful). Not to mention… you’re right by Loch Ness…

 There are plenty of other great places in Europe that truly shine in the Fall, but these are easily our favorite five. So if you’re looking to mix it up and actually do your yearly vacation in the Fall, then try one of these great locations! We promise they won’t disappoint.
