You HAVE TO add these places to your bucket list!

And now that I have your attention with the above pretty image of this beautiful lake, let’s dive right into bucket list stuff!

I know most of you have places like The Great Wall in China, Taj Mahal in India, Paris, New York, The Grand Canyon, the Maldives, the Pyramids in Egypt, the Northern Lights in Norway… And all these are truly awesome. Seriously.

As a digital nomad, you’ll get to see the whole world, either solo or as part of a group.

I bet you’ve started working on that bucket list of yours already.

How about you jazz it up a notch? What if you try some different and not so popular choices, which are simply incredible and surely can offer amazing, unforgettable experiences?

Here are a few places you probably haven’t thought of

For the safari enthusiasts: Ngorongoro, Tanzania

You HAVE TO add these places into your bucket list!

A hidden gem in the middle of Africa, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is a World Heritage Site, an area still preserved in its purest form.

Ngorongoro has taken its name after the sound produced from the cowbell, the ngoro ngoro, which was used by the Maasai shepherds.

I’m shocked that this destination is not as popular as other bucket-list places around the world.

In this part of Tanzania, you’ll get to explore nature, including the Ngorongoro Crater, the largest inactive crater in the world.

You’ll also get the chance to witness Africa’s wildlife and tour around this magnificent, pristine ecosystem.

There are dozens of guided tours available for the lovers of nature and adventure, at quite steep prices. In my honest opinion, such an experience is well worth the money.

Another incredible thing to do in Ngorongoro is the chance to meet and interact with the Maasai Tribe, a bunch of very friendly folks, who are always excited to greet tourists.

Without a doubt, Ngorongoro is an once-in-a-lifetime experience and a total bucket-list contender.

Best time to visit: all year round
Expect: an adventure
Cost: high (but worth it)
Safety level: high, if you book a tour guide
Chances of doing some work: slim

For the quiet beach lovers: Nosy Iranja, Madagascar

You HAVE TO add these places into your bucket list!

White sandy beaches, turquoise crystal waters, lazy days. Ah, true bliss!

Nosy Iranja is actually a set of islands connected with a strip of sand that’s only visible at low tide.

The place is stunning; trust me, you’ll take the most beautiful pictures.

I can only compare it to the Maldives and Mauritius, which are relatively close (well, in the same ocean).

Nosy Iranja beats both of the above, because it’s cheaper and more pristine. Don’t expect fancy bungalows over the water, but rather boho huts on the sand.

Alternatively, you can choose to say at the Nosy Be island and travel to Nosy Iranja by speed boat, to enjoy the sea and sun.

Best time to visit: April to October
Expect: laziness and relaxation
Cost: low
Safety level: high
Chances of doing some work: good, but have a wifi backup plan, as the Internet is poor in Madagascar

For the ancient heritage explorers: Petra, Jordan

You HAVE TO add these places into your bucket list!

You HAVE TO add these places into your bucket list!

The whole city is a mystical museum that guides you through centuries of ancient history.

Regardless of your religion, Petra can offer a lot of fascinating trips to the past.

The scenery of the sandstone city is simply majestic, with camels and beduins wandering around the monasteries, tombs and caves.

I definitely don’t wanna sound like a travel ad (I’m failing, I know), but this city is just too fascinating to pass.

Try staying at a beduin camp instead of a hotel, to completely immerse yourself into the whole experience.

Best time to visit: March through May
Expect: a culture close-up
Cost: low
Safety level: high
Chances of doing some work: very good

For the wild crater admirers: Flores, Indonesia

You HAVE TO add these places into your bucket list!

The good thing about Flores is that it’s not too far away from Bali. So, if you happen to be in Bali, it’s worth making a short visit to this incredibly beautiful place.

Its most famous attraction is the Kelimutu volcano with the 3 breathtaking crater lakes.

The color of their water changes frequently, from vivid red to bright blue and green, depending on the level of oxidation.

Flores is a very good destination for water activities, like snorkeling and fishing, and it’s slowly picking up as a must tourist destination in Indonesia.

Best time to visit: end of May to mid-October
Expect: breathtaking views of the lake and water color changes
Cost: low
Safety level: high
Chances of doing some work: good, if you combine it with Bali where you can settle for a while

For the avid scuba divers: Great Blue Hole, Belize

You HAVE TO add these places into your bucket list!

You HAVE TO add these places into your bucket list!

Every diver’s bucket list contains at least these 2 destinations: the Grand Barrier Reef in Australia and the Great Blue Hole in Belize.

There’s one thing you need to do in this huge sinkhole: dive in. Enough said. Achievement unlocked and crossed off the list.

Best time to visit: December through March during the dry season, assuming you’ll get to visit some of the mainland
Expect: diving, water sports and chilling
Cost: somewhat high
Safety level: high (be prepared, get in an organized diving group)
Chances of doing some work: high, if you combine it with a stay in the mainland

For the time travelers: Lake Titicaca, Peru/Bolivia border

You HAVE TO add these places to your bucket list!

Getting to Lake Titicaca is easy, either from the Peruvian side (from a city named Puno) or the Bolivian side(from Copacabana, again Bolivia, not Brazil).

The lake serves as a natural border between the 2 countries and is at a very high altitude.

Lake Titicaca is known as the birthplace of the sun. It’s such a serene and quiet place, that screams (pun intended) tradition and culture.

Traces of the Incas civilization are very present in this area, where you can find picturesque villages that look like they’re completely disconnected from the modern world.

It kinda seems like the Incas version of Westworld, where you basically enter a time machine and travel through history.

There’s no other place on Earth like Lake Titicaca, for sure.

Best time to visit: May through October
Expect: a journey though time
Cost: low
Safety level: low to medium (altitude sickness is a common health issue for travelers)
Chances of doing some work: none, unless you don’t need wifi
