Getting a visa can be a pain in the ass when you want to travel and relax. You have to prepare a lot of required documents and go to an embassy without the certainty of getting approved. The process of getting one can take a lot of time and patience. But if you’re a traveler and no one can stop you from seeing other countries, well lucky for you there are visa-free countries that you can go to!
Pack up your bags, ready your passport, and save a lot of money. And here are 5- Visa Free countries you should look forward to visiting in 2019:
Knowing that Taiwan is just two hours away from the Philippines, why not go there and see what the country has to offer. In their capital city, Taipei, indulge yourself with the different Taiwanese cuisine or visit some historical temples and museums. If you want to experience the cold weather and see some snow, book a flight between December to February and visit the Jade Mountain(Yushan) or the Yangmingshan national park. But if you want to see some beautiful cherry blossoms, go to Taiwan during their spring in the months of March-May. See? A Taiwan has a lot to offer, and we’re just getting started.
This country is known for its rich cultural heritage. If you go to Phnom Phen, their capital city, you can walk around and see their cultural heritage sites. You can visit the largest Hindu temple in the world called Angkor Wat in Siem Rap city, where the famous Lara Croft: Tomb Raider was filmed. One great view to see is the sunrise or sunset time in Angkor Wat, I promise you, it’s breathtaking.
