Most Underrated Vacation Spots?

Subscribe

I've done a portion of the cliche trips. Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Santorini-Greece, Venice, Prague. Looking to indulge some cheap Asian islands some time in the near future, just to feel like a millionaire. My latest trip was Ronda, Spain. It isn't popular among traveling enthusiasts but my intentions were chill and lax so I wasn't disappointed. Since they don't receive as much exposure as their competitive Euro neighbors, the catering/service is definitely tier 1. Landscape and the views were breathtaking as well. What are some underrated spots you guys have visited that may not be on everyone's bucket list? Doesn't have to be international, domestic is fine. Let me know!

BTW, anyone been to Monterey Bay, CA before? I'm considering taking my niece there over Disney Land.

Carmel, very close to Monterey, is one of my favorite places in CA. You should 100% go there. Also, make sure to do the 16 mile drive and Sunday brunch at Pebble Beach (or stay here as your home base for the trip to this area). p.s. -- this is obviously not not an underrated vacation spot but it is awesome.

I'll second this, unreal beaches and food. People are generally nice too. Pretty much anywhere in the Algarve is going to have great beaches, and closer to Lisbon, Cascais is a great spot. Actually super underrated wine too, to the point where now I specifically look for or order Portuguese reds.

Just wondering how were you able to travel to all those places while being in IB? Did you go while still in school or are you just at a firm that is more lenient?

Nantucket, MV were family vacations. Prague was senior year in HS, my school's orchestra was selected to perform there, I was the cameraman in my HS. Greece, Italy, Spain were all pto days, that I actually use; ALWAYS.

Kyoto sometimes gets overshadowed by Tokyo. I don't know if I would call it underrated though. It has beautiful shrines, a mountain to go up, and good food. Also excellent whiskey if that's your thing at the Yamazaki Distillery.

In a similar vein to Ronda, If you’re big into hiking and/or driving, I’d recommend Northern Italy/Switzerland/Austria. Absolutely breathtaking views everywhere you go, great driving roads and hiking trails. Not to mention, you’re right in the heart of the Dolomites, which are quite impressive.

There are def some tourist hotspots in the area but can easily be avoided for some smaller towns.

Taiwan is criminally underrated by the rest of the world (ex-East Asians). Friendly people, safe, clean, great food, deep history and culture, nice beaches, easy to get around Taipei has a fun party scene. Another underrated country is Malaysia. Amazing food, nice people, multi-cultural, super easy on the wallet, plenty of beaches, jungles etc as well as tea estates.

In Latin America, I felt that Ecuador is often overlooked despite having beaches, jungle and the Andes all within hours of each other. Friendly people and lots to do. Mexico City is also rarely mentioned but the city has so much to do, a deep history with lots of culture, amazing street food, a solid hipster scene (fashion, craft beer, coffee etc, if that's your jam), and genuinely friendly people. Both Ecuador and Mexico City are easy on the wallet.

In the US, I did a 7 day road trip of Northeast Minnesota hugging Lake Superior which was really pretty. Lots of nice state parks, not crowded, nice people, good craft beers and dairy, not expensive.

I used to do Asia-Pacific PE (kind of like FoF). Now I do something else but happy to try and answer questions on that stuff.

The nightlife is insane. Seoul is truly the city that never sleeps and puts places such as Barcelona and NYC to shame. Even at the height of Covid, nightclubs were still going pretty strong. There is a 2nd wave going on in Korea, and the Government is actually starting to clamp down since until now, they haven't actually mandated anything at all. That being said, I constantly see snapchats/instastories of my friends there continuing to live it up, but the majority of people in clubs definitely are wearing masks now. 

The price to party is very cheap in Korea. Even at the highest end clubs, entry will be 20 or 30 bucks, and the price of a luxury table will be nothing compared to what you would pay at a much shittier club at NYC. Most professionals on this sub will be able to afford some heavy partying compared to their home cities in the U.S. The ladies are super hot, and if you got a lot of money, you will have no problem. Food is amazing, and a ton of stuff is open 24/7, but again, not sure how much things have changed since the last time I was there was last Summer before Corona took off. The city is super safe, there is no crime, people pass out on the street all the time without getting any of their shit stolen. 

Even if clubbing isn't your thing, the going out/"casual" drinking scene is nuts. Koreans generally live with their parents until marriage, so most young people spend as much time outside their home as possible, so if a bar of restaurant truly isn't spectacular, it is a short lived business. So establishments have to constantly up their game to stay afloat, so even your average Starbucks or McDonalds is a lot nicer in South Korea. If you're partying with Koreans, prepare thy liver because people there drink like no tomorrow. There are no hard drugs unless you're some well connected rich kid whose family connections make you bulletproof, so alcohol is the go-to for the country. Soju is magical and costs less than water, there are no laws against drinking in public, drinking games in Korea are a ton of fun if you have some local friends, and much more. I'd definitely suggest going there if you had a buddy from college or your past who lives there, will make the time there A LOT better. Also, the girls are smokin hot.

My absolute recommendation would be El Nido, in the island of Palawan. I have also visited Busuanga, a smaller and less developed island, which is also great (and better for scuba diving, if you're into it). Anyway, El Nido is my favourite place on earth, so that's definitely my recommendation

Belitung, Indonesia. SUPER off the grid, expect to need to use your translate app for everyone but they will be some of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. No surf but some of the clearest beaches in the world great for snorkeling- I think I paid ~$14USD to charter a private boat to take me around the surrounding islands. Google Danau Kaolin, Batu Baginde and other images of the island and you’ll want to go.

Different.... Bali absolutely blows it out of the water if you’re looking for touristy stuff and packages. You can almost do find anything in Bali: partying, surf, more packaged stuff, yoga, temples, etc. etc. A less touristy option that offers very similar options to Bali would be Lombok, the island just East. Belitung is 2-3 steps down in development, if you want to go somewhere extremely remote and untouched with more unknown hidden really cool spots. 

 

PS :Sulawesi is the spot to hit if you’re looking for scuba diving.

 
Sep 4, 2020 - 12:06pm

Not sure if all count as underrated, but some may be a bit overlooked: Iceland (not Reykjavik) for nature and outdoor activities, Tuscany, Italy for food, wine, scenery and atmosphere, Kyoto (and surrounding area including Nara, Himeji etc.) is absolutely golden, Vietnam (especially Hanoi, Sapa and some of the coastal cities, Ho Chi Minh/Saigon is less interesting tbh), Cuba (not sure how easy it is for Americans to go) and North Korea (definitely not easy for Americans to go, but doable for others).

 
Sep 4, 2020 - 12:45pm

Georgia is one of the most underrated places on earth imo. Also happened to just watch a "The Grand Tour" episode and i was surprised to hear Jeremy Clarkson say the same thing. Most well-traveled people I know rave about it. 

 

In the EU, Turkey is not underrated but for the USA, it certainly is. Good food, culture, history (Istanbul = Constantinople), favorable exchange rate, amazing geography and coastal towns (Antalya, Alanya, Izmir, Marmaris etc.). Plus, Cappadocia is one of the coolest spots I've ever been to. 

 
Sep 4, 2020 - 12:52pm

There was a point in time where iceland flights were very cheap (like $300) and it made for a great 2-3 day stop if you were taking a vacation to Europe. The nature there is incredible and the blue lagoon is great. Unfortunately i think the airlines that had those deals went out of business

 
Sep 4, 2020 - 1:09pm

Plenty of good spots in latam but Holbox, Mexico comes to mind (few hours from Cancun, so it's easy to access from the US). Tiny island with no cars. Perfect beaches.

Holbox is great. You can fly into Cancun and either drive and take the ferry or get a puddle jumper from the Cancun airport to the small Holbox airstrip (kinda expensive).

Sintra, Portugal. Its an old mountain town with several abandoned palaces and castle ruins. Only a fews hours from Lisbon - which is also a beautiful and vibrant city with amazing food, wine and sunsets.

Array
 
Sep 6, 2020 - 2:38pm

Sintra is fine as a half-day trip from Lisbon (the castles get boring once you've seen more than two), but you should definitely check out Cabo de Roca if you're gonna drive out to Sintra anyways. The most western point of continental Europe with incredible views and Cape of Good Hope vibes. Also a great area (around Cascais) to rent a place for a few days for a cheaper beach vacation in Europe

OP I liked Ronda. Visited there last summer on a road trip to Sevilla. Glad you liked it. Happy you posted this too. I have vacation fever.

I went to Split, Croatia three years ago and Croatia in general is quite beautiful. Definitely can stretch your money too. I would recommend going sailing.

We stopped in Slovenia on the way back to Italy where I was studying and Slovenia is a gem. If you want to go hiking and see mountains and clear water rivers it’s a good get away. We spent a day there but next time I go to Europe I’ll be exploring much more. Just google some pictures of hikes. Incredible and not overrun by westerners.

My next big trip might be Poland or back to Italy to the south (ancestry exploration). Probably going to the Caribbean for the new year this winter. Say BVI?

Those are just my quick two cents. Can’t speak to Asia as I haven’t been yet. My gf spent time is Australia and NZ for school. She really enjoyed it. Especially Queenstown, NZ.

 
Sep 4, 2020 - 5:21pm

Aye, thanks for your input. Ronda was unforgettable, glad you had a good experience as well. What city in Slovenia did you breeze through? I hear the wine and people are lovely/welcoming.

We went to Krka National Park. It’s in the south and was just pristine. We stopped in the north as well to cross border again. The parts near Trieste IT look nice. There’s an episode of Chefs Table on Netflix about a Slovenian Chef and her restaurant in the region. I’d like to camping in Soča.

The border near Italy is quite manageable but it’s neat because it quickly become “not so Italian” and you suddenly have this change of geography and history. Former Yugoslavian break up was only some decades ago and the identity of the country is still shaping. Same goes for Croatia.

Kotor Montenegro looks incredible between the Adriatic and the Mountains. Balkans have a lot to offer if you’re trying to see the world and not just slum it at the hotel.

I'm a fairly simple man who likes golf and cars.  One of the most underrated vacation spots I've been to was Pebble Beach, CA (20 - 40min south of Monterey).  A typical vacation at pebble beach goes something like this... You wake up early morning get a nice hearty breakfast (omelet, hashbrowns, and sausage) then play a round of golf at one of the many coastal courses in the area while the marine layer is still rolling in.  The courses are impeccably kept and completely empty, you are literally the only person playing the course with all the beautiful northern California coastline you can soak in.  You finish your round right as the marine layer is burning off and grab lunch on the patio at one of the many delicious restaurants in Carmel.  You spend the afternoon walking around Carmel, soaking in the sunshine.  Afterward, you play another round of gold in the evening and finish the day with a scotch next to the fire on the patio at the Inn at Spanish Bay watching the sunset.  The next day you attend the Pebble Beach Concourse D'elegance and look at some of the most spectacular cars in the world on the 18th fairway of the Pebble Beach golf course.

Malta is super beautiful and dirt cheap (the fort-like architecture is one of the most surreal styles I've ever seen!) Plus the island is small so you can hit all the big spots in under a week. Would suggest checking some of the cheap cruises they offer from Sliema. Lake Como in Italy is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to; not really under the radar for some but definitely worth it. If you're in that region I'd also hit Annecy in France (that's more of a gem.) Norway is great in the summer with beautiful Fjords (although Scandinavia is super expensive.) Corsica rivals any Med island (south side of the island). Like others have said Portugal (Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais, Porto)is super beautiful and pretty cheap. The list could go on... Man I miss travelling lol

 
Sep 4, 2020 - 3:22pm

I'd say any island in Greece that isn't Mykonos or Santorini. Those two are tourist traps with Mykonos being ridiculously overpriced, filled with a bunch of drunk Europeans and Aussies that don't know how to behave, and natives that straight just get annoyed of you because you're just another dumb tourist. Every island is literally the same in Greece and they're all super chill with amazing views. Main difference is that the other islands are 1000x cheaper and just as enjoyable as the other two big islands minus Mykonos' night life (but I'm assuming a board filled with men and women who are in their mid to late 20s have no interest in going clubbing with a bunch of immature 18 year olds). Overall vibe I got from Greece is that it's a place very suited for couples (think romantic getaway). Yeah there are groups of guys and gals that come to rage, but Greece is not that type of destination like Miami, Ibiza, or NYC even is. One thing I will note tho is that in the summer time during tourist season, Mykonos clubs will book top performers/names. However take what the promoters say with a grain of salt because the performers don't always show up.

 
Sep 4, 2020 - 5:26pm

Can agree that Santorini and Mykonos are rip-offs. But I've accomplished my goals in Greece. My next island trip will probably be an Asian one, even cheaper.

Sep 4, 2020 - 5:21pm

This got me thinking again so I had to come back to it. I’ve pretty much conquered a lot of continental Europe. If you are a winter sports person you have to do the alps.

Zermat Cerevina on the Italian border is great skiing. Grindewald near Interlaken was quite shreddable. Anything Swiss was really a great time. Haven’t been to Matterhorn but I know a kid who climbed it with his dad on a mountaineering trip and that looked incredible.

I have a slight italy bias, but with that being said you can certainly have and incredible trip if you flew to Milan, rent a car and headed north in the winter. Maybe do that and fly home from Zurich or something to NYC if you’re and east coaster.

Other observation, although it’s rather “popular,” is Oktoberfest. That month in the fall is absolutely electric in Munich. Definitely would recommended as long as you’re not gluten free lol.

 
Sep 4, 2020 - 5:41pm

Some Italy suggestions:

-Riviera: Everyone creams their pants about Cinque Terre, but there are a ton of other places around Genova that are beautiful and less crowded, especially if you go outside of June-August (September is a great time). Portofino is expensive but you can go for a day, San Fruttuoso, Rapallo, Santa Margherita. Then on the other side of Genova is Sanremo, Bordighera...

-Alps: Italy gets some grief from skiing snobs but it's much cheaper than in Switzerland. Cervinia is ok but I would suggest Champoluc/Gressoney/Alagna. With good snow Alagna is absolutely unreal if you are a good skiier (best day trip for me personally).

 

France:

-Southwest/Pyrénées: Very different from what you might expect, super salt of the earth crowd. Bayonne for the beach (Biarritz too, fancier, more stuck up), Carcassone for the history (the walled town is mind-blowing), Lourdes which is really interesting (pilgrimage spot where Catholics claim to be healed by holy water). And the Pyrénées are an order of magnitude wilder than the Alps but still accessible. Great food and wine

-Bretagne: Like the New England coast but with an extra 2000 years of history. Incredible crêpes and salted caramel (invented there). Fantastic sailing. Best time to go is late June, early July, the sun sets at half past 11pm. Would stay north of La Baule but then anything from Croisic to Belle-Ile and Quiberon is really cool. Not really Brittany but also cool are Noirmoutier and at the border with Normandy is Mont-Saint-Michel which is incredible.

-USA:

I haven't done this but it's on the list, renting a houseboat on Lake Powell in AZ. Just looks like such a weird and cool experience.

 

Random NYE celebration:

Berlin: people lose their minds with fireworks, it's like a warzone (make what happened in the US summer look like a joke).

Although I went for a soccer trip and was not allowed to go out at night due to practice/games, by far my most memorable experience in Europe was Belgium. I was in Brussels and loved every bit of it.

The Alps during summer is underrated imo; most people only go there during the snowy seasons. Not only is it really beautiful during summer but you also have a wider variety of sports like rafting, mountain biking, canyoning, caving etc. I actually like it more in the summer, but to each their own. Also, don't feel restricted to the Swiss Alps, the French and Italian Alps are just as nice, cheaper, and will give you better views of the Mont Blanc. Chamonix in France is a great place to stay because it is basically right next to the Swiss and Italian border and the Mont Blanc. From there you can explore nearby smaller, prettier alpine villages and locales in either Switzerland, France or Italy.

 
Sep 5, 2020 - 1:13am

A lot of great spots already mentioned, but thought I'd add (and repeat) some more (some of which I've been to, others top of my next trip list):

  • Oman - beautiful beaches, tons of culture, good food, solid infrastructure, and easy to get to from UAE (want to stay at Six Senses Zighy Bay next time)
  • Iran - tough with visas but most hospitable people I've ever met (even as an American), and the history, culture, and food are phenomenal. Some of the mosques are hands down the most stunning pieces of architecture I've ever seen.
  • Georgia - haven't been but high on my list and everything I hear and read makes it seem like a super underrated destination
  • Mallorca - touristy in summer, but laid back, stunning beaches and water, food is ok
  • Western Australia (mainly Margaret River) - beaches, wine, and Australia - can't ask for much more
  • Tahiti - not Bora Bora, but look into Moorea, Huahine, Tahaa, and Raiatea to name a few (Tahaa has some great over-water bungalows)
  • Uzbekistan/the Stans - probably top of my list to visit. More of a trip than a vacation, per se. Culture, history, architecture and scenery; been wanting to do the Mongol Rally but hard to get 6 weeks off work. May just rent a car and drive through most of the Stans instead (i.e. Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, and Tajikistan; hard to get into Turkmenistan)
  • Kotor, Montenegro - haven't been, but looks like Croatia years ago. Starting to get touristy but not there yet.
  • Patagonia - hiking around El Chalten and just driving around gives you an appreciation for how big the region is
  • Azerbaijan - Baku is a solid mix of old and new, plus they have an F1 race there (in non-COVID years)
  • Socotra - absolutely the hardest to get to on this list (since it's Yemen), but basically the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean. A few groups run tours and flights are back running, but with war going on in Sana'a, this one might have to wait.
It is what it is.

I''m guessing that like many of us you're NYC based, and travelling may be a challenge this fall.  If that's the case, I suggest just going down the shore.  The water's going to be warm for another month, and the crowds will thin out after this weekend. Sea Isle and The Wildwoods are great for hell-raising, while Avalon/Stone Harbor/Cape May are more family friendly.

 

Personally my bucket list includes Vienna and Georgia.  I get the vibe that Tiblisi may be a bit uncomfortable in the height of summer, but it seems cool and off the beaten path.

Dude, when you get a chance check out Ocean City, Maryland. You won't be disappointed. An extra hour or two further south from Cape May but worth the hassle and the highway driving views releases the tension. Flat plains filled with generational wealth land and you'll see a handful of horses living their best life once you reach Deleware. Post-Deleware you'll be surrounded by a big body of water, won't be as crystal as the Caribbeans but anything beats that filth in the Hudson River. Before you know it, Ocean City, MD. From a drone's perspective, it's shaped like Miami. Family friendly, lots of delicious seafood grub caught from their waters and good amateur golf spots. It's hard to trust financial advisors but TRUST ME! You won't regret this stock.

I never did OCMD, but I did do Dewey and Rehoboth in my younger years.  I'm a SIC guy myself.  We had the most notorious party house in town for more than a decade.  The joke was that the property would be worth a million bucks as bear land, but with the house it was only worth $750k.  Hey, at least the lead paint kept the asbestos in.

The summer rent-a-cops showed up on our porch once.  I had to yell upstairs and it took me two minutes to get a lawyer, a FBI agent, the county ADA, and a Catholic Priest to help walk them around. You get a reputation pretty quickly as a place not to be trifled with when you do that.

Vancouver/British Columbia is amazing for outdoors scene and probably the most authentic Chinese food outside of China. Great skiing in Whistler and hiking/kayaking/camping all around. Canada's super good about preserving the environment so it's all swaths of untouched temperate rainforests

Parts of BC also look really similar to Patagonia actually with the glaciers (and the really turquoise glacial lakes) and mountains.

Central and Northwest VA - everything is green and picturesque - rolling hills of pasture, stunning horse estates, access to Shenandoah, vineyards with wine not half bad, good weather 8 months a year, also can go as expensive or cheap as you want. If you're looking for an easy holiday from NYC without a flight, I'd say it's very underrated compared to the classic Cape Cod, Vermont etc.
