Tired of reading up here and there, and wish all the top vacation spots in the world would all be there in one place, and you could read it up all at one shot, right? But frankly, no one can really do that for you. Here you have our subjective selection of our favourite vacation spots from around the world. 

A DANCEWITHSHADOWS REPORT

Tree house in Kerala, India

The treehouse in Kerala in the middle of thick jungle offers one of the most quiet vacation spots I have even heard of. Featured in every major international travel magazine in the world as a top vacation spot, the exclusive treehouse at one-time accommodates only 2 couples, one on each floor of it. 

 

Yes, the treehouse, perched on a vast treetop at a height of 90 feet, is probably the highest in the world. Getting to the top is by means of a strong bamboo basket that works like an elevator. The resort has very few staff, and offers total solitude, simple food and the best hideaway experience you can get.  One of the top vacation spots - treehouse vacation in Kerala, India

Forest Houses Resort, Sedona, AZ, USA

Forest Houses Resort is situated on 20 wooded acres in upper Oak Creek Canyon. The resort is separated from the highway by trees and Oak Creek – a clear, cool continuously running mountain stream stocked with Rainbow and Brown trout and supporting an abundance of birds and wildlife.

The canyon walls and multi-colored cliffs of basalt, lava, limestone and sandstone are forested with red maple, aspen, chaparral and seven varieties of oaks. The canyon floor, 1,500 – 2,000 feet below the rim, is shaded and cooled by giant Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir. Oak Creek is lined with lush sycamores. Think this makes for a perfect romantic honeymoon or a family vacation spot?

Luna Lodge of Costa Rica

The Luna Lodge is spread over 60 acres, over 30 acres of the lodge's property is primary virgin rainforest. You can spot literally hundreds of rare and beautiful bird species such as the scarlet macaw, red-legged honeycreeper, and slaty-tailed trogon. You will also likely encounter exotic creatures, such as coatis, tayras, and the four species of monkeys found in Costa Rica. Definitely a hot vacation spot that qualifies for this list.

Aruba, a great vacation spot in the Caribbean

  Aruba attracts one million visitors and cruise passengers per year. Away fro the Americas, not too many have heard about it. But the sheer beauty of this place earns it a place as one of our top ten vacation spots. Wherever in the world you are, a vacation in Aruba is worth a trip.

Aruba is in the Caribbeans, and the first language of the place is English. You have beautiful beaches, clean water, and great cliffs and a desert. There are a great many sports you can participate in too. This is a top spot for windsurfing or snorkelling, and the waters at the beaches are often just three feet, making it perfectly safe to wade into. Want the perfect tan, again, this is the spot. Though situation in the Caribbean, this vacation spot is officially a Dutch colony and that makes it part of the European Union.
