Namibia is an incredible country - from the world's oldest desert to the world-class Etosha National Park and everything in between. A much overlooked country! My second would be Sumatra in Indonesia. Most people visit Bali or Java but I have to say this is my favourite spot - volcanoes, lakes, rainforest and some of the friendliest people I have met!

  1. Namibia (country)

Java -- Most people go to Bali for beaches, yoga, surfing, etc., but Java is full of interesting cultural, historical, and natural attractions. Places like Krakatoa (the source of the biggest volcanic eruption and the loudest sound in recorded history; offshore, but close enough), Special District of Yogyakarta (a artistic city still ruled by a Sultan in a palace), Mount Bromo (one of the best places in the world to see the sun rise), and my personal favorite, Kawah Ijen (a sulfur mine in the middle of an active volcano, staffed by what must be the hardest workers in the world).

Indianapolis - Full of small town charm and Midwest friendliness. Quickly defining the craft beer scene in the U.S.


Ireland outside of Dublin - Again, small towns with ton s of character, lots of history, and friendly people. Also, Guinness, GOOD Guinness, everywhere.


Lisbon - Though this is changing, used to be Lisbon was one of the underrated destinations in Europe. It's getting lots of press now, and for good reason: great food, friendly people, wonderful weather.

I think in almost every region, once you get past the main tourist areas, there is a ton to offer.

In the Netherlands, don't stick to Amsterdam, but visit cities like Utrecht or Maastricht.

In Belgium, venture out from Brussels to Liege or Ghent.

The Rhine and Mosel river valleys of Germany, Luxembourg and France offer so many great villages, and great wines as well.  Cities such as Rudesheim am RheinSankt GoarCochem and Trier in Germany. Schengen in Luxembourg. And Strasbourg down to Colmar in France will give you a different perspective from Paris.

In Italy, the Emilia Romagna region including BolognaModenaParma and Ferrara are a culinary (and automotive) heaven, and are often overlooked compared to neighboring Veneto, Lombardy and Tuscany.

The Kvarner region of Croatia is also missed from most itineraries, as most visitors focus only on the Dalmatian coast. With wonderful local white wines from Krk, and close proximity to the culinary delights of Istria, Kvarner should definitely not be overlooked.

I've got to throw some love in for my new favorite city in Europe... it's Copenhagen. Europe has many amazing cities, so this one is overlooked by most. Here's why i think it's great. 

A few reasons:

  • Happy: Denmark boasts some of the happiest people on the planet. It's been proven
  • Proud: I've found the people to be not only be happy, but proud and welcoming.
  • Great vibe: The restaurant Noma (#1 in the world 4 out of the last 5 years) has launched a creative energy in the city that has spawned a great food and creative scene. 
  • Beautiful: You won't find more beautiful city squares anywhere. Just head to the Restaurant Peder Oxe and choose from any of the places on that little square and tell me i'm wrong. 
  • Bikes: They ride everywhere, even in the dead of winter. They are very proud of their green/healthy lifestyle.
  • Design/Architecture/History: All deserve a lengthy post, but let's just say there is enough to keep you busy :)
  • Canals: The city is on the water, which makes for another unique way to explore it.

Uruguay. Although Uruguay is not the cheapest nor the most exciting in terms of nightlife or cuisine, it was a surprisingly hospitable country. We lived in Montevideo for 4 months. Driving around this smaller country is easy and safe. Make sure you check out swanky Punta del Este, the Rocha coast and, of course, the quaint colonial city of Colonia (Uguguay), directly across the Plata (river) from Buenos Aires. Seasons are temperate, so trips can be planned 12 months of the year. It's natural beauty will astound you!

Easiest answer ever: Iran. But it's such an amazing place that it won't stay underrated for long. Just like Myanmar 5 years ago... The only reason why there are few tourists are political tensions between the governments, not because there is nothing to see. The people are very very welcoming, there are plenty of world-class sites that you never heard of, it's budget friendly and easy to travel... What are you waiting for?

Tirana in Albania. I'm not going to lie--it's not the prettiest place I've ever been but it's so fascinating and just outright strange, that it's worth a trip. It's one of those places that you look around and think "Wow, if they ever got it together and cleaned this place up it could be great!"

Part of what makes it so bizarre is that everywhere you look, buildings are painted these strange rainbow colors. I heard that the story behind this is that a few years ago the town was experiencing an incredible and fast decline so the mayor told everyone to paint their buildings these weird colors (I think he may have even supplied the paint). The result is incredibly strange if amusing. 

The other reason I got such a kick out of it was that it's beginning to have a wonderful cafe culture (I believe the area where all the cafes are is called Blloku) and the food there is crazy good. A mix of Greek, Mediterranean and, I suppose, Albanian. I still remember a plate of spaghetti I had there. 

I don't think I would specifically plan a trip to Albania but if I find myself in that part of the world again, I would definitely do a side trip if for no other reason than that spaghetti!!!

UPDATE: I emailed the friend I was there with (who happens to be on Trippy and is an amazing source of information) to find out the name of the restaurant and it was Restorant Piceri ERA. I had the spaghetti marinara which, according to their website is about 380 Lek which is about $3.50. If I'm remembering correctly we also had the Greek salad, an antipasto, and desert for something like $40 for four people. It was perfectly cooked and the tomatoes were so fresh it was like they were still on the vine. It kind of looks like a chain when you look at the site, but don't let the commercial look fool you--this place is fabulous.

Ecuador-particularly the Galapagos.  Spectacular scenery, wonderful people, killer wildlife.

Bavaria (Bavaria)-small towns like Rothenbergand Fussen near Neuschwanstein Castle-the setting is something out of dreams, the food is so much fun and some of the friendliest people I've ever met.

Cambodia-the temples are other-worldly, the food is amazing and the people have the absolute gentlest souls on the planet.

Charleston-no place that values old over new like Charleston.  I love the preservation of the city!

Prince Edward Island-Amazing seafood, fun capital city (Charlottetown) and pastoral drives.

Alberta Canada has some amazing destinations that many don't think to go to.

Bolivia has some amazing scenery with the Solar de Uyuni and the world's most dangerous road outside La Paz; which is awesome!

Guatemala has a lot of really cool places to visit like Lago de Atitlan Antigua and Tikal that most people don't think to go.

Mongolia is a really cool place to visit also and worth a visit in and of itself with great deserts and unreal scenery. More than just a stop on the Trans-Siberian.

Western Australia - most visitors focus on the Eastern part of the country, from Queensland's Great Barrier Reef down to Sydney & Melbourne. WA is huge (France could fit in it four times) and sparsely populated. You can find pristine, deserted beaches, swim with whale sharks in the Ningaloo Marine Park , sample delicious wines in Margaret River, ride camels on the beach in Broome, explore Perth and quaint Fremantle, or get into the outback and marvel at the natural beauty. It's a shame so few visitors make it out west - this is the real Australia.

It really depends on what you're looking for. Iceland has a lot going for it ... outdoor adventure, food and shopping (there's some really interesting and eye-catching fashion there - even I noticed it!). And I was just in Curitiba, which exceeded all my expectations. It's particularly good for people who like craft beer. And then there's Portland. If someone is planing to visit the US, I want them to skip LA, Vegas, Chicago, blah blah blah and go to Portland instead. Great food, excellent culture, terrific outdoor experiences. I'm a huge fan of Finland, too. And if you really want to have your world rocked upside down, I'm all about Vietnam. It took me a few days to settle it ... but once I did, it turned into a trip with a little bit of everything.

There's this little town called Nederland (Colorado)about a half hour west of Boulder. I fell in love with this place before we even got there. The drive right through the mountains has spectacular views, and then you arrive at this small, quirky town with colorful buildings, lots of nearby hikes, friendly people, and even Alpacas! :) There's plenty more history and attractions to check out here- but I'll let you explore for yourself!

I try to make a habit of visiting places that are underrated. Here are a few I love:

Almost anywhere in Latin America. Most Americans don't get past Mexico or maybe Central America, which is a shame. I've been to Cuba twice and loved it -- go on an educational tour that concentrates on music. Iguazú Falls is arguably the largest set of waterfalls in the world. Everybody knows about Machu Picchu, but Peru has tons of other amazing things to see, including the Sacred Valley of the Incas, volcanos, hot springs, and rain forest.

Even though the Galapagos are well known, they cannot ever be overrated. Spend more than just a week there, as some of the best places are out of the way. And make sure you go on a boat that holds a maximum of 16 passengers, as that is the limit for tourists off a boat at a time (otherwise you will have to wait your turn). Most of the tours are less than a week, so if you go on a longer one you will have some of the most amazing locations all to yourself (and your small group).

Jordan is also a place that people don't know about because they think the Middle East is unsafe, but Jordan is safe, friendly, beautiful and has amazing sights. Not just the famous Petra, but also Wadi RumMadabaJerash, the Dead Sea, castles, and other places.

I would also recommend Egypt now that it is becoming safe again. We went during the revolution and it was an amazing bargain. And they need tourist dollars.

I also loved Vietnam. Great food, relatively inexpensive, and lots of sights. Ha Long Bay is stunning.

Closer to home, the SE corner of Arizona is amazing, including Kartchner Caverns State ParkTucsonBisbee, and Chiricahua National Monument. If you like ghosts, stay in the Gadsden Hotel. To get your tourist fix, stop in Tombstone.

Others? Almost anywhere in New Zealand, Finland and NorwayVictoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The less touristed areas of the Canadian Rockies. South Korea is much cheaper than Japan!

I think Budapest is still underrated and is, for me, my favourite city in Europe/the world

I think the Croatian islands are well overlooked and dwarfed by Greek islands, but I think they are much better. Places like Hvar are well known but even sailing the Adriatic to all the different islands will take you breath away.  I love Korcula so I would recommend this as a not-so-famous island to visit. Makarska too.

Saint-Émilion is often overlooked by more famous wine cities as well but deserves more love from everyone!

Galicia I think is a bit underrated.  Most people talk about it now because of the Camino de Santiago that ends in Santiago de Compostela, but there are other areas that are definitely worth exploring!  Check out Pontevedra,  A Coruña and Las Islas de Toja.  Galicia has some of the best seafood I've ever had because it has access to the cold Atlantic Ocean.  If you love mussels and are willing to try octopus, el pulpo a la gallega is probably the best out there.  Galicia also has great white wine.  You can do everything from hike the Camino de Santiago, to going to the beach (just make sure you hit it during the summer if you want great beach weather), to white wine tasting and mussel eating boat cruises, to walking around Celtiberian ruins.  Another lesser known area of Spain that I love is Logrono in La Rioja.  Yes, you've heard of their wine, but have you gone to the bodegas to try it?  Logroño is great because it's got that small city vibe and its peppered with vineyards and excellent tapas bars.  Head to Calle Laurel and eat and drink your heart out.  It's such a narrow street, but come tapas time it is filled with people eating, drinking and hopping from bar to bar.  You can easily head up to País Vasco and the beautiful coastal city of San Sebastián from there, which I would also recommend for its delicious pintxos (a very decadent style of tapas), beautiful beaches and fun surf.

Bruges has become slightly more popular thanks to that movie In Bruges, but I still think it's underrated.  It's small, adorable, walkable and has so much charm.  Upon setting foot there you feel like you've been transported into a fairy tale.  Bruges is known for their chocolate, their beer, their excellent waffles and lace.  So go to town!  There is something for everyone!

Finally, I have to give a shout out to my New England roots.  The southern coast of Maine isn't given its fair share of fame.  The towns of Kittery, York and Ogunquit have such classic New England vibes and are great for beach getaways.  You can eat delicious seafood, relax by the beach, go shopping and do a number of outdoor activities.  My vote is to go in summer or early fall as the winter can be cold and a little dull.

I also think that Adelaide Is another underrated travel destination. It has so may different Arts, and so much to see. I love traveling, but just don't have the funds to go to far off places, so I enjoy learning about them. Blessings.

If your looking for a life changing Adventure think no other than Tanzania, the Mother land of human evolution, Olduvai Gorge, or Oldupai Gorge, in Tanzania East Africa is one of the most important paleoanthropological sites in the world,it has proven invaluable in furthering understanding of early human evolution. Climb the roof of Africa on Mount Kilimanjaro and roar like beast, with a total of six to seven days you could be up 5,895 screaming O yea!!! I did it, Hakuna Matata.


Visit the Serengeti National Park,one of the top rated tourist attractions in the world. Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th world wide wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle. And after all this you take some time and chill on the white sandy Beach of Zanzibar. Cheers!!!

I haven't been, but my wife loved Ghent. At least as much charm as Bruges without the crowds.

I'd vote for Chur -- the oldest city in Switzerland, out in the eastern canton of Graubunden. It's a bit out of the way, in the Alps, but lovely and full of quaint hotels, restaurants and shops, with a great little museum of the local history, in the Romansch-speaking region (although everyone speaks German). Europeans consider Chur quite the shopping Mecca. No one else goes there.

guys, you are all wonderful! So many ideas where to travel to now...

I'd say this  ||||  photo is always below the location:

South America: Cartagena to discover a true Cafe del Mar feeling.


North America: Santa Barbara Island. It isn't because I like the island that much, but the dolphins in the channel are just amazing.


Europe: Barcelona. Has it all.


Afrika: Taghazout, for an ethnic-surf experience combination.


Asia: El Nido and you will dive like you never dived before.


Australia: Byron Bay has the most relaxed feel you can imagine...

I'm going to give a shout out to my hometown, Cleveland. The food scene is great with chefs like Michael Symon. Visit LolaLolita or B Spot to get a taste of his cuisine. Stop down at E 4th St for some drinks, food, music and a great atmosphere. 

Don't forget about our theater district. It's the second largest in the United States next to New York. Playhouse Square has great talent and brings national shows through its doors. 

Stop down at W 25th St to try the local breweries like Market Garden Brewery and Nano Brew Cleveland. Be sure to go to Great Lakes Brewing Company.

Now we can't forget our sports teams. Depending on the season, stop by and see the Browns, Cavs, Indians, Monsters or Gladiators. We may not have a championship yet, but they're sure to entertain you!

Just spent a weekend in Cincinnati, never thought about it before and was really surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

Internationally, I thought Riga had amazing architecture and amazing inexpensive food, it's not terribly high on people's European agenda but I loved it.  Also Slovenia, a day or two in Ljubljana, a couple of days for Lake Bled, a couple more days to explore the caves of Postojna and Škocjan(the more impressive of the two in my opinion).

Perhaps not off the beaten path but we had a really enjoyable trip to Wales this summer, I've been to the UK over 20 times and this was the 1st time I made it to Wales.  Beautiful castles, pretty scenery, Victorian era seaside locations and a tour in a coal mine.

There is a long list of underrated destinations I could think of. But I will zero in on two places that are perennially overlooked when compared to their famous neighbors: one in Europe, the other in Southeast Asia. 

ScotlandScotland (for that matter, Wales too) is always in the shadow of its famous neighbor, England England. ( Did the Scots mind? Apparently not! The referendum to separate from the Union was just recently defeated). But really, Scotland has its charm not find anywhere in the British Isle. Driving in the highlands in single road for miles only to be stopped by hundreds of sheeps crossing the road is hilarious.  Its glacier carved landscapes are out of this world. Loch caught, the smoked trout is definitely better tasting than anywhere else. Go northwest and you'll ask yourself if you are in Norway or in New Zealand -- but probably nearer where you are from and more affordable---that's the wild beauty of Scotland.

The Philippines in Southeast Asia has always been bypassed by most tourists and travelers compared to the popular destinations of Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, or Indonesia.  But, the Philippines boasts longer coastline than the United States; and white-sand beaches are everywhere with its 7,000 islands. Diving is one of the best in the world. Its rice terraces are much much older, higher, wider, longer, and more intensive than those found in Indonesia, Vietnam and even China. Its people are friendly and very hospitable. It is also now a rising tiger (economically speaking) but still affordable.  And for you, Andrew Zimmern, the Filipinos are known to relish the bizarre food of "balut" (boiled duck egg in almost fully formed embryo with feathers, feet, beak, eye and all) as  a snack food.  Have you try that one yet, Andrew?

I've been living in Copenhagen for the past 2 months and it is by far the most underrated city in Europe.

The city is clean and very manageable. The architecture is beautiful and the attention to detail is mind blowing with everything the Danes do. There is an amazing food culture here. 

Granted we've had great weather for the last 2 months. I might have to amend this once I'm in the middle of Scandinavian winter.

Island of Ortigiais a tiny island attached to Syracuse in Sicily. It is an absolutely stunning little jewel with lovely squares, statues and is beautiful to just wander around and yet no one has ever heard of it. Rotterdam in the Netherlands was bombed flat during the war but is now a buzzing, super stylish city filled with incredible architecture and easy to get around by bike. Erta Ale in Ethiopia is difficult to get to but its actually the easiest of the worlds five permanent molten lava lakes to reach.

I'm a bit prejudiced because I live here, but I'd say Charleston.  Charleston is probably the best place to experience the traditions and culture of the American South.  It's more authentic and workaday and less touristy than Savannah, and safer than New Orleans.  The old homes in the Historic District are breathtaking, hotels and restaurants are elegant but not pretentious, and there are plenty of outstanding holes in the wall and off the beaten path places to see, do and eat.  The beaches are outstanding and underrated, and the geography and ecology still appear very much like it did before the industrial age.

Key West is another underrated spot.  If you get beyond the tourist trap that is Duval Street you'll find a laid back, down at heel town that has a culture uniquely its own.  Key West is in my opinion the best place to experience counterculture Americana.

Taiwan is another underrated gem.  Taipei is a bustling city that doesn't look too attractive on the outside but is full of nooks, crannies and hidden gems. And once you get beyond Taipei you'll see the China you read about in the storybooks - bamboo forests, temples built into hillsides and tea plantations.  Not to mention the fact that Taiwan is safer, cleaner and much easier to get into and travel through than mainland China.
