Local communities keep multitudes of stray cats alive. It is a joint rather than individual effort and has much to teach other nations.

Why not visit Koh Ta-Pu, which was a location used for the filming of James Bond’s film: ‘The Man With The Golden Gun’? Alternatively, visit Koh Panyee, which is a Muslim fishing village. What makes it literally stand out is that every building was made on stilts.

The Greek islands always come to mind when it comes to holidays with blue water, clear skies, and plenty of sunshine. Of these islands, Crete is the largest.
The Samaria Gorge is an incredible feature, being Europe’s longest gorge. History fans will enjoy visiting the local castles, including the Fortezza. It’s also well worth visiting the archaeological museum of Heraklion – in fact, it is the single most popular historical attraction here. One famous artifact that it contains is the Phaistos Disc which displays symbols that are still undeciphered to this day.

6. London, England
There are so many things to see and do here that people will want to stay for days. Imagine visiting the many theatres in the evening, and the world-famous art galleries during the day. People who want an aerial view of the River Thames can book a capsule on the London Eye. The Shard is a unique and very tall building that allows people to eat, drink, and observe London all at the same time.
Why not book a boat trip down the River Thames, receiving a guided tour whilst enjoying a tasty meal? Alternatively, visit the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, or visit the Queen’s home at Buckingham Palace.
7. Paris, France
The Eiffel Tower is a globally recognized landmark. It’s a huge wrought-iron construction containing viewing galleries and places to eat. Other major landmarks are located in Paris, too. There’s Notre Dame (‘Our Lady’) where Napoleon was crowned and the Arc de Triomphe. The latter was commissioned to be built in 1806 after a political victory and was completed in 1836.
Lovers of art will be able to enjoy viewing world-famous pictures by such people as Monet and Manet, Degas and Van Gogh, or Renoir.
