Travel is a number-one dream or pastime on the planet, mainly because there are so many breathtaking things to see and do in this world. If you’re one of the many with wanderlust and you’re reading this article, you likely also appreciate destinations that aren’t harsh on the herb.

(You’ll need to rest up for the Red Light District the next day!)
