The Great Walks in New Zealand, especially Harris Saddle on Routeburn Great Walk. We burned a route on the Routeburn; We did the same 24 km hiking up and down the mountain two days in a row to ensure we saw the staggering Southern alps from the Saddle (the clouds hid the view the first day.) No place on earth compares to New Zealand.
Always look out for free walking tours in the city you are visiting. Many hotels and hostels offer them. If not, check online, there are usually companies that provide it. It is a great way to see the highlights of the city plus, it is free!
Free to walk through the streets of Hoi An, Vietnam’s beautiful historically-preserved town. Put it on the bucket list. Also the Smithsonian Institutions (many museums and a zoo) in Washington DC are fantastic.
The Myrtos beach in Kefalonia island, Greece! I am sure that those who have visited this beach fully understand me! The landscape is impressive, the waters green and the nature truly magnificent. It is no coincidence that Myrtos is one of the most famous Greek beaches and probably the most photographed one of Kefalonia!
I would have to say Museums and Parks in London go a long way in being one of the best free places to visit. Especially given that everything else in London is so expensive, it’s great that you can visit so many wonderful Museums and Parks for free. Hamstead Heath and Natural History Museum would be my personal favourite!
I love to visit parks in the cities I visit. You can hang around for as long as you want without people kicking you out and eat and drink your own food. It’s good for a bit of downtime after sight-seeing and of course some shameless people watching!
When I think of the best ‘free’ attractions, I can’t help but instantly think of London. You can find some of the world’s top museums in this city, like the Natural History Museum and the V&A, and they’ll be completely free to visit! And it doesn’t stop there; most of London’s biggest art galleries have free admission, as do all of the beautiful green expanses of parks. A tip: Go to Richmond Park for some wildlife spotting – herds of deer roam freely here.
National parks, all over the world. Even if you have to pay a small fee sometimes, it’s worth it. By visiting national parks you get to experience stunning nature and at the same time, get away from the world and just be. I also like to explore cities by foot because it’s a fun way to get to know a new city. And even if it’s not a new city to you, you’ll never know what you might stumple upon.
