Summer Getaway 2011

Autumn, winter and spring are over and summer is finally here! Just like me, some of you might had already booked your summer holiday and some are still on the process of planning it. Sometimes it is just hard to plan for a vacation especially when we have to consider the budget, place to spend it and might be worst when you are not given a vacation leave from work. I am quite sure some of you are done booking it. Whether it is a family holiday, cruise trip, relaxing vacation at the beach, weekend city break or simply touring a certain city or country, I suggest you need to plan it ahead of time to avoid stress and to save time and money as well.

There are a lot of beautiful places in this world and each and every place has its own charm and uniqueness to offer to its guests and visitors. Here are some of the places I wish to spend for my summer getaway this year or maybe in the near future.


Are you familiar with the European country that houses the Nobel Prize committee except for the Nobel peace prize? It is no other than Sweden. This country is a member of the European Union since 1995 but they did not join the European Monetary Union and the euro currency. It is also the largest of the Nordic countries in Northern Europe.

Why do you think that spending a holiday in Sweden is worth it? I heard from a friend in Sweden that it is a country that is great for outdoor life. Depending on the season, skiing, hiking, cycling and canoeing are only some of the outdoor activities that you can enjoy when visiting Sweden. If you love shopping and night life, Stockholm, its capital city and Gothenburg are the best ones to go.

You don't have to worry about your travel safety in Sweden. It has a low crime rate and is generally a safe place to travel.

Cape Town

This city in South Africa is not only a famous travel destination for European people but also from different tourists from all parts of the globe. No wonder, it is the most popular tourist destination in Africa. Spending a holiday in Cape Town is a good choice not only because of its natural setting but also because of its good climate and well-developed infrastructure. Don't miss to visit its popular tourist attraction like the Table Mountain, the so-called Cape Point or maybe a drive along Chapman's Peak Drive. You might also want to take a hike up to Signal Hill to have a great view of Table Mountain and City Bowl.

I believed Cape Town is truly a wonderful place to visit during summer holidays.

Las Vegas, Nevada

You love shopping and entertainment? Las Vegas is one of the best place to go in this planet. Being the Entertainment Capital of the World, for sure you will have a lot of unforgettable, exciting and fabulous moments in this city. Its major attractions are the mega-hotels and casinos especially in Las Vegas Strip, simply called as the Strip.

The fabulous Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas..taken during my visit last 2008.

Don't miss to visit the famous Fremont Street Experience, watch the Fountain Show in Bellagio Lake, the Volcano Show at the Mirage, Botanical Gardens at Bellagio or maybe a walk or window shopping at the famous Fashion Show Mall or Forum Shops in Caesars Palace. These are only some things to see in Las Vegas and there are still tons of them. I love Las Vegas and hope to visit it again in the future.

I wish you all a wonderful and memorable summer holiday!
