Traveling is an opportunity not only to have a break from the daily grind, but this can also be a good way to discover and immerse yourself in an unfamiliar culture. Looking for the next destination to explore? In this post, we will have a rundown of some of the best cities you might want to include on your bucket list.

Cape Town

One of the best ways to explore a city’s culture is through its food scene. With this, be sure to visit the Eastern Food Bazaar, which will allow you to experience the street food of South Africa. The Hout Bay Museum, meanwhile, is recommended if you want to learn more about mining, fishery, and forestry, which are some of the most popular industries in the country. You might also want to have a tour of Robben Island, which is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. For something unique, Rastafarian Township Tour is a must-do.

Prague

 The capital of Czech Republic may be popular for cheap beer, but beyond the drinking scene, it can also prove to be a promising destination. There is plenty to explore in Prague. Watching a folklore show is one of the best activities that you can do, which will allow you to discover an old-age tradition. A cruise along Vltava River is a great way to discover the city and you can see the historic Charles Bridge from underneath. Make sure you visit St. Vitus Cathedral, and if you are feeling active you can climb up the almost 300 steps to the top of the tower for the best views.

Rome

Culture, religion, and art are just some of the highlights of a trip to Rome. It is a good place for foodies as well, allowing travelers to uncover culture through a culinary tour. It houses a vast collection of ancient ruins. The Sistine Chapel is one of the highlights of your visit, which is especially popular amongst Catholics. It is also a city where you can have a close encounter with the works of renowned artists like Michelangelo. There are also many spots in Rome that have been the location of popular films. 

Jodhpur

You may not have heard of this Indian city, which is already a good reason to visit as it isn’t as crowded with tourists as some destinations. A tour of Jodhpur is a great way to learn more about its culture and history. One place that you should see is Mehrangarh Fort, which is one of the biggest forts in the country. It has a museum, which houses a vast collection of artefacts. Jaswant Thada, an empty commemorative tomb, is also worth seeing. The markets in the Old City, meanwhile, will let you see how locals live.

Shanghai

Discovering culture does not need to be boring. This is exactly what you can experience in Shanghai. A progressive city, this is the perfect depiction of modern China. It is home to 27 national museums, which is more than what you can find in any other city in the world. Shanghai Museum and China Art Museum are two of the attractions that you should see if you only have a limited time.
