If you’re stuck for a decision about where to travel to next year, you’ve come to the right place!
Below, you can find out which place you should visit next year, with useful tips and tricks to make travelling much easier for you.
When it comes to landmarks and architecture, Europe just takes the biscuit due to the historical charm they have. Of course, China is home to some impressive modern infrastructure, but landmarks in Europe all tell an endearing story, as well as make a stunning Instagram photo! Seriously though, when visiting Europe, you have a larger selection of countries to visit, from France to Luxembourg and Austria, whereas when visiting China, you’re limited to, well… China.
In addition, you never know when you’re going to encounter an accident on holiday, which is why an e111 renewal is so beneficial when visiting Europe. This way, you are able to cover any medical accidents that happen abroad, so you can save your holiday money for tacky souvenirs and fun days out! If you don’t mind spending a little bit of money, we’d definitely recommend visiting Europe during the festive season, as several European countries hold the most magical Christmas markets, all bursting with delicious cuisine and quirky gift ideas. For example, Belgium is home to one of the most popular Christmas markets in Europe, loved by all those who visit there! However, travelling to Europe is going to become much more strenuous now thanks to Brexit negotiations, making traveling there much less enjoyable in the foreseeable future.
Asia is home to some pretty remarkable, revolutionising countries such as Japan, and China is definitely included in this category. You won’t find a richer culture anywhere else in Europe, with its language superseding all others in terms of originality, as well as adopting bespoke sports such as kungfu and karate. It doesn’t end there either, as China produces some of the most unique cuisines known to man, such as their extensive tea selection and dim sum. Although Europe holds a lot of history within its architecture, China has over 4,000 years of history to its name, making the culture there even more captivating. Plus, with natural wonders such as the Yangtze and Guilin, you will always be in awe of the beauty in China.
When traveling to the Asian country, we recommend booking your stay during the autumn months, specifically September to October. These days are the most clear, allowing you to really admire the beautiful landscapes as well as still remain warm without sweating as much as you would when visiting in the summer months. One of the main problems with China is their greater restriction on Internet access, and you’ll find that many Chinese residents use Virtual Private Networks (VPN) to circumvent censored content. Therefore, before visiting China, this is important to consider if you live a lot of your life on the web.
Overall, China exceeds Europe in terms of culture, and the advantages well outweigh the disadvantages. For example, Internet access is the last thing you should worry about when visiting one of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world! Personally, we believe that visiting Europe can be done whenever, but China? That’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
