Today marks the beginning of another travel series, focusing on the one must-see site in every country. To start us off, I’ve picked three English-speaking countries/territories: England, South Africa, and Hong Kong. These are three places with an extraordinary array of things to do and places to visit, but I’ve done my best to narrow all of the fantastic experiences down to the top of the top. Without further ado, here are the must-see sites!
While there are hundreds of must-see tourist attractions and locally-loved hot spots, I chose Borough Market as my go-to place. Any time someone I know visits London, I suggest this quintessential European market. Here, you will find various ethnic foods, fresh produce, butchers, bakers, and more. Borough is mostly a market for food, but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable than any other market, and that is why you should check it out.
This list has to include a one-of-a-kind attraction, and the Moses Mabhida Stadium Swing is just that. There are no other stadium swings in the world, and you can guess why. If you’re a thrill-seeker, you have to endure this 80m free fall at least once in your life. Afterward, you can say you survived the Guinness Book’s official biggest swing in the world.
Although Hong Kong is technically a Chinese territory, many parts of it are different from mainland China. The one site you need to visit is Nan Lian Garden. This classical Chinese garden was designed in the Ting style. Each component of the garden has been carefully placed, according to old rules and customs. While in the garden, you can also eat at the vegetarian restaurant or the teahouse.
Have you been to any of these places? Was there a must-see attraction I missed? Tweet me @JuliaSotnykova to let me know!
