Kyoto has most of the cultural treasures in Japan
Kyoto is especially on the wish lists of those interested in history and culture .

Best known for its beaches, parties and great weather, Miami, in southern Florida, is high on the travel wish lists of travelers around the world. South Beach – colloquially known as the American Riviera – is where most locals and tourists come to. In this Art Deco district, the tanned bodies and world-class restaurants present themselves, but you can also find one or the other small snack on the beach. Any of the diverse hotels would be the perfect addition to your wish list.
The 13th century Mayan ruins are a must see in Tulum
Tulum – a coastal city on the Caribbean coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula is also on our travelers’ wish lists – for obvious reasons. The mirror-smooth, turquoise-colored sea invites you to swim in it and then let the sun dry you off on the snow-white beach. Also, explore the 13th-century Mayan ruins built on a cliff.

Natal is on the wish list of the adventurous
Travelers from all over the world have to stay at home for the moment and many dream of the sunny coasts of Brazil and especially of Natal on the northeastern tip of Brazil. There are many secluded beaches, huge dunes, lagoons and picturesque fishing villages all over the city. But the city has more to offer than just idyllic relaxation by the sea, because it is known for the buggies with which you can race over the dunes. Zip along the coast in a convertible buggy during the day, then relax in an ocean view accommodation and watch the gentle waves lapping on the sun-kissed beach.
