Siargao Island is an undiscovered paradise in the Philippines that is slowly becoming quite popular. The island is famous for its silky beaches, which are surrounded by limestone peaks and boast such beautiful scenery that it will leave you breathless. Not to mention the crystal clear water and the perfect waves for surfing. 

In fact, the Siargao Island is home to a well-known surfing spot among surfers; Cloud 9 is famous for thick, hollow tubes while also offering cheap accommodations in the area. It’s the perfect destination if you and your girls are avid surfers; and even if you’re not, you won’t be bored! As we are assured by Southeast Asian Serious Women – the island will keep you occupied with its heavenly lagoons, cave and rock pools, or motorcycle/bicycle exploration.

 

Provence, France

Many people associate France with gorgeous scenery, iconic spots, and fine food – the perfect combination to make your dream trip come true. Provence, in particular, offers you pretty fields of lavender, winding roads, and cute hilltop villages that are the epitome of romance. You can explore the most beautiful sights on foot, rent a bike or go on a road trip – either way, you will fall in love with the country’s beauty.

We can assure you that you will be spoilt with choices when it comes to accommodation, as there are plenty of villas in Provence to choose from. If you want to experience a traditional French breakfast, attend the local markets, and cook an exquisite French meal for your girls, it would be perfect to rent a place in the countryside. And last but not least – wine tasting! Provence is famous for its wine, especially rosé, so be sure to taste the nectar of the gods during your stay.

 

Iceland

If you are a fan of the show “Game of Thrones,” you probably have heard about Iceland before. The country is famous for being one of the filming locations for the popular TV show; however, it’s also simply a place with beautiful scenery. The landscapes are breathtaking, and the Northern Lights are truly mesmerizing. If you are an outdoorsy person, you will love hiking in Iceland’s national parks.

It’s also a great destination if you want to try your hand at something new and exciting; for example, ice climbing is gaining popularity, and there are many companies that offer courses and tours with experienced guides. And if you prefer to rest and take it easy, you can pamper yourself in the famous Blue Lagoon. If a trip to Iceland isn’t exactly on your bucket list, you should consider adding it right now – your girls will thank you for it!

It’s not hard to chase away the hustle and bustle of the big city once you are here.
