Vienna is unusual to any other European cities as you get to experience something unique here. This city is well-known in classical music. So get a ticket to the greatest Wiener Musikverein before it's sold out. You won't miss out the St. Stephen's Cathedral because it is right in the middle of Stephansplatz city centre.

No.7 London, UK


London is our home away home. We never get bored visiting London because it is diverse, vibrant and energetic! Our favourite spots to visit are their local markets such as Brick Lane Market, Camden Market and Borough Market, and heritage sites from the signature Big Ben and the Tower Bridge to Somerset House and Westminster Abbey. It is not only our favourite travel destination to visit but also a great place to live.


Old Town Square, Prague, Czechia

No.6 Prague, Czechia


This medieval old town is a true beauty in Europe. No matter when you are visiting the Old Town Hall for a look of the stunning Prague Astronomical Clock or wonderful views of the city in the Old Town Square, every little thing gives you a reason to fall in love with Prague. If you are looking a signature modern architecture in the city, the Dancing House is absolutely the best sight for you to see.


Plaza de la Fuente, Barcelona, Spain
Plaza de la Fuente, Barcelona, Spain

No.5 Barcelona, Spain


Architectures are everything in Barcelona. There are many gorgeous building designs in the city, such as apartments Casa Milà and Casa Batlló and a church like Cathedral of Barcelona. In the evening, you may come to Plaza de la Fuente to take a look at the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc. In addition, one of our favourite sites to see in Barcelona is La Sagrada Familia; this grand basilica is probably too pretty to be completed and is expected to be finished in 2026, or maybe later.


Lagos, Portugal

No.4 Lagos, Portugal


Nowhere is like this cliffside city in Portugal; Lagos is well-known for its beautiful sandy beaches and cliffs. It is definitely one of the best vacation destinations in the world. If you enjoy sunshine and nature, this place is totally made for you. Ponta da Piedade, Praia do Camilo and Praia do Pinhão are on the same route.

Here's another city that is best known for its beaches: Nice, a seaside town in southern France, is probably every French, or European's dream holiday destination. The iconic Promenade des Anglais is absolutely fabulous for a relaxing walk. From the hilltop Castle of Nice, you will be able to see Nice as a whole from the top. The amazing views of the city will turn your trip into a milestone and make your day.


Venice, Italy
Venice, Italy

No.2 Venice, Italy


Venice is nothing like any other places in the world. There are no roads but only canals in the whole island city. Taking a gondola or a water bus to explore around Venice is essential. Visit the St. Mark’s Basilica in Piazza San Marco in the main island, or take a trip to Murano and colourful Burano for some unique cultural experience by making your own glass and lace work while you are there!


Stortorget, Stockholm, Sweden
Stortorget, Stockholm, Sweden

No.1 Stockholm, Sweden


Stockholm, the capital of Sweden has stolen our heart for sure. We are absolutely in love with the city because it was so much fun to travel around when every single metro station had been painted in different artistic designs. You may also take public ferries as sightseeing boats to explore between the islands so you get to see the city by water. A trip to the old town Gamla Stan allows you to discover Stortorget and its colourful buildings. It is just everything packed in one place! What a perfect travel destination!
