Bali, Indonesia

This product was recommended by Nicola Rae from See Nic Wander Travel Blog

Bali, Indonesia is one of the few places on earth that has everything. I didn’t think it was possible to surf a white-sand beach, hike through the monkey forest, and watch the Kecak Fire Dance atop breathtaking cliffs all in one day, but in Bali, this is the norm. In your two weeks, you can see the traditional rice paddies of Ubud and take a ride on the hair-raising Bali swing.

Experienced surfers will be thrilled by the number of top-notch surf spots nestled around the island and beginners can catch their first wave with a seasoned instructor. Spicy Indonesian food is inexpensive and abundant. And with endless historical festivals and shows to see around the island, you might never want to leave.


Sierra Leone

This product was recommended by Monique Teggelove from Papillon Reizen

This West African country is a great destination for people who look for a combination of nature, culture and relaxing. In the past few decades the country has seen the devastating effects of a civil war and the 2014-2015 Ebola outbreak. As it is slowly getting back on its tourism feet you won’t meet the masses here. Whether you’re into culture, primates, island life, exploring one of the most pleasant African capitals or relaxing at a 5* beach resort, Sierra Leone offers it.


Utah National Parks

This product was recommended by Christina Pate from Travels with Ted

Visiting the five National Parks of Utah is the ultimate road trip vacation. You can rent an RV and camp in the National Parks so you have easy access to all the trails and viewpoints. While all five parks could be visited within a week, a two week vacation allows you time to really explore the wonders of each National Park. Bucket list hikes include the Narrows in Zion, in Delicate Arch in Arches and Upheaval Dome in Canyonlands.


Cerro Gordo Ghost Town

This product was recommended by Brent Underwood from Cerrogordo Mines

What better place to socially distance than an abandoned mining town tucked into the mountains of Sierra Nevada miles away from any other town. Surrounded by BLM land and bordering Death Valley National Park. No other inhabitants, other than the ghosts and they’re not known carriers.

Shimla, Himachal Pradesh

Shimla the ‘queen of Hills’ is a haven for wanderers. Decorated with forests of pine, flowering rhododendron and tall cedars, Shimla’s scenery is what Ruskin Bond admires in his novels.

Italy

This product was recommended by Kobi Mensah from IaM

Italy 🇮🇹 has been one of the first and hardest hit countries for coronavirus they seem to have hit their peak for the pandemic, and like China, will see a rapid fall of infections and will have had it controlled in the next number of weeks. As soon as they lift their travel restrictions, Italy will be open for business, just in time for their summer holidays. You may want to be quick to get in all the sights before the mad rush that will return.


Iceland

This product was recommended by Gemma Tedaldi from The Travelling Tedaldi

Iceland is somewhere we have visited a couple of times and each time you leave wanting more. Most recently we spent our trip exploring what the Route 1 Ring Road has to offer and boy there’s a lot! You can easily spend 2 weeks just driving and stopping at every scenic viewpoint you find. From the ice capped mountains to the coastal fjords there is always something to see.


Israel

This product was recommended by Adrienne Sasson from Rubinsohn Travel

One of the most unique destinations in the world to visit and plenty to do within 2 weeks. This is the only destination in which you can mix 3 major spiritual experiences along with options for cultural encounters, adventure, foodies’ paradise (especially for vegetarians and vegans), wineries, and more. Where as Jerusalem holds most of the religious sites (with others spread throughout the country), don’t discount her nightlife or restaurants. For those who want to bring it up a notch a few nights in Israel’s award winning cosmopolitan city of Tel Aviv is open 24/7.

The beauty of the Mediterranean Sea during the day, excellent shopping, museums and restaurants and nightlife, this city pleases the most particular traveler. Areas in the north offer adventure hiking, bike trails, ATVs, rafting and more. In the south in Eilat, the Red Sea offers superb diving, snorkling, and sailing. You can also cross the border to Jordan and visit Petra for the day. Israel offers something for every travel, from the most novice to the most experienced!


New Zealand

This product was recommended by Amy Alton from Out Chasing Stars

This island nation has something for everyone. It’s small enough that two weeks is a decent amount of time to see the attractions that most matter to you. You can find glowworms in a river cave, hike a full day on Mount Doom, or visit some of the best interactive museums in the world, like Te Papa, which partners with WETA studios, the special effects team for movies such as Lord of the Rings. Two weeks makes it worth the travel time, and renting a car or campervan is extremely popular.


Sri Lanka

This product was recommended by Amy Alton from Out Chasing Stars

I spent 12 days traveling around Sri Lanka, and it was the perfect amount of time. We enjoyed a safari, spotting leopards, peacocks, and elephants. The highlands of Sri Lanka are home to one of the most beautiful train rides in the world. It’s extremely cheap to travel around the country and enjoy the curry dishes influenced by neighboring India. And Sri Lanka is steeped in ancient history; kings reigned, building fantastical temples (like the Sigiriya Rock Fortress) and Buddhists constructed dozens of stupas and religious sites all over the country.


Vietnam

This product was recommended by Tara Caguiat from Hostel Jumper

Vietnam is the best place to travel for two weeks because it’s just enough time to explore the country’s history, cities and unique sites. If you’re coming from the West, Vietnam is an especially cheap destination where your budget for two weeks will go far. You can learn about the Vietnam War at the numerous historic sites and museums, take a luxury cruise through Ha Long Bay, party all night long in nightclubs and dine on delicious Vietnamese food along the way.
