If I have three weeks vacation in July, I would like to go to Tibet, China. 

My husband and I are very nervous and tired when we at work.  So, we want to go somewhere to relieve ourselves on vacation. Both of us think Tibet is our best choice. 

Once-in-a-lifetime, pilgrimage journey to the holy Mt.Kailash and Mapam Yumco (Lake Manasarovar) which will satisfy spiritual, cultural, religious desire in the magic land.

Kangrinboqe Peak the most sacred mountain in the word is the best land for trekking and pilgrimage. With the altitude of 5630, conquering this holy mountain is a challenge to one's will and belief.

When comes to pilgrimage around Mt.Kailash, tourists may confuse about the orientation of pilgrimage. Generally speaking, for Buddhist and Hindu, they pilgrimage clockwise. For the believers of Bon which spread to Tibet earlier than Buddhism and flourishing in the remote districts of Tibet, they do pilgrimage anticlockwise.

My husband would prefer to sail our boat around the Chesapeake Bay , but it wouldn't be just 3 weeks in July - that's where he'd rather be all the time.

But if you asked me, I'd go to Iceland or Norway, or Finland or Quebec City

Summertime in South Carolina is oppressively hot and muggy, so in July I'd head for a cool weather destination in the Southern Hemisphere such as New Zealand, Chile or South Africa, or maybe I'd head to Norway and ferry hop my way up the coast and see the fjords or back to Iceland.

Why not head down to Pamplona and see the Running of the Bulls, from there you can easily head to Barcelona  San Sebastian  Bordeaux  Haro and the Rioja area of Spain or Algarve and then over to the south of Spain or Morocco.  It is all great food and drink and the Running of the Bulls is insane.

it is easily doable in three weeks, especially if you are coming from Luxembourg

With 3 weeks, I'd probably plan it around a city where my friends live. That way you have enough time to catch up with friends casually instead of the normal rush-in and rush-out and maybe see your friend for one dinner.

When I've done this in the past, I basically spend the weekdays exploring the whole area, and meet up with friends on the weekends when they are off work.

I'm sure there are plenty of international destinations that others can recommend, but to start in the U.S. here's an article about ten summer vacation spots. There are a few cities listed that might be less known. Ideally over 3 weeks you could hit a few different places, maybe centered around a larger city but with time to explore neighboring towns.

The places listed are SkaneatelesBellinghamGrand MaraisChicagoWashington, DCAshevilleMontereyJasperLancaster (Pennsylvania), and Durango. This is ideal if you rent a car and do a road trip around an area. Since you're traveling in July, you might as well explore some of the cities that are nice in the summer but would normally be cold in the winter. Chicago has a ton of festivals in the summer and you could easily spend weeks exploring the city, but I'm a little biased on that one =).

July is a fantastic time to visit Namibia and South Africa.  It's the southern hemisphere winter, so it's the dry season across most of the region (with the exception of the Southern and Western Cape) and the weather is perfect for exploring, with cool/cold nights and days characterised by clear blue skies and temperatures in the mid/high teens centigrade. 

Because it's the dry season, it's perfect for game viewing as animals congregate around permanent sources of water, and the vegetation isn't as dense, giving greater visibility.

As an example, we did a 3 week road trip from Johannesburg the July before last.  We stopped off in historic Kimberley (South Africa) to visit the Big Hole (a diamond mine that's the largest hand dug excavation in the world) and then spent a couple of days at the exquisite Augrabies Falls National Park, a much underrated park that offers a dramatic waterfall in the midst of a thirstland, as well as unexpectedly good game spotting.

From there we crossed the border into Namibia, and stayed a couple of nights at the Fish River Canyon - reputedly the second largest canyon in the world (depending on how you gauge these things).  Next stop was the coastal town of Luderitz, which we used as a base to explore the ghost diamond mining town of Kolmanskop and the surrounding Namib desert (including an encounter with the wild horses of the Namib around Aus).

From there, we headed north into the heart of the Namib to the iconic dune landscape of Sossusvlei, and then cut back to the coast at Walvis Bay.  This is a great spot to catch your breath, and the town (along with neighbouring Swakopmund) offers a huge range of activities from skydiving to desert safaris, bird watching in the lagoon, boat tours and kayaking to the local seal colony.

Heading inland again, we spent time exploring the otherworldly inselberg at Spitzkoppe - a pyramidal peak that rears out of the desert.  Continuing north, we made our way to Etosha Pan, which is an enormous ephemeral salt pan that offers some of the best game viewing in Africa, if not the world, and a wonderful place to spend a few days.

Finally, we dropped into Windhoek, and then returned across the Trans-Kalahari Highway, via Gobabis and over the border into Botswana, where the highway cuts across the whole country to Gaborone, and then back into South Africa.

You could fly straight into Namibia (there are direct flights from Frankfurt) and then do a road trip around Namibia, but this does mean some doubling back on yourself in terms of the route.  Also it's much cheaper to hire a vehicle in South Africa than it is in Namibia - just make sure that you declare your intention to take the vehicle into Namibia when you hire it, as you will need to show vehicle papers at the border.  People tend to assume that you need a 4x4 for this sort of trip, but the roads - even the dirt roads - are good.  You just a good sturdy vehicle with reasonable clearance and a rental agreement that gives you unlimited mileage, as the distances are huge!

From June to July, it is simply hot. In Hanoi, the heat is made worse by the volume of traffic and sometimes the dust. In Hue and Hoi An, the heat is aggravated by the intense amount of sunlight. In Ho Chi Minh City, the heat is coupled with frequent rain. However, you should visit Hue of Vietnam where you can enjoy Hue festival which often takes place between late June and mid-July. It is one of the highlighted cultural events that are well attended by both local and tourists alike.

Hey,

I would suggest the north of Morocco. You can visit TangierChefchaouen (the Blue pearl). And if you would like to feel the real summer, you can go down to Agadir and Marrakech, But avoid any desert tours cos it's extremely hot there in the desert.

Happy travel in advance,

I would recommend you to come to Indonesia. The advantage of the archipelago is you can stay in 3 really different places in 3 weeks, as the islands are close to each other. From the Iconic Bali, to the desert Lombok, Flores and the Komodo dragons.... each island as a really unique culture. And of course the incredible beaches, rice fields and 30° water.... Also Bali is an incredible romantic place, the best romantic dinners of Asia are on the island, check my blog
