Where will you go this summer?

Where will you go this summer?

At the start of the week we asked our Hostels.com facebook fans another pressing travel question and the response was probably the best yet! We wanted to know if there was only one place that you could visit this year, where would it be? We got a lot of varied responses from people all over the world looking to visit other places all over the world! Here’s a selection of the places that were suggested!

Zoe from Australia is planning a visit to Turkey soon, as too is Kushal from India. Martin suggested Greece, while Romina wants to visit the Greek Islands of Santorini, Mykonos and Rhodes.
India was also mentioned by Staci in LA because she has always wanted to go there.

Sami wants to pay a visit to Munich, Germany for the beer and either Alicante or Murcia in Spain for some sun! We highly recommend a trip to Munich for the ultimate beer festival – Oktoberfest! For more on this annual beer festival take a look at our feature on September Holidays.

Ruth suggests Amsterdam for a visit! If you are making a visit to Amsterdam this year then take a look at our Amsterdam City Guide for all you need to know!

Collins is off to Paris in August and was asking about places to stay. We have a great selection of hostels available all over Paris and read our Paris City Guide before you go!

Manuel is from El Salvador but lives in France and is recommending the Faroe Islands for a trip this year! Meanwhile Andrew is thinking about a trip to California where we have a lot of great hostels.
Ann-Kathrin is from Germany and would love to go to Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival in August! If you do make it over for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival then take a look at our Edinburgh Travel News section before you go for information on the many festivals Edinburgh annually plays host to.

Rahima is currently in Orange County and wants to visit Alaska, but if money wasn’t an issue then Tokyo would be top of her list! Tracey would also like to pay a trip Alaska.

Wietske is from the Netherlands and will be visiting Thailand with her daughter, while Richard from Fort Myers wishes he was on a beach sipping on a drink on the Phi Phi Islands in Thailand... we wish we were there too Richard!

Catherine from Quebec is off to Fuerteventura this fall so make sure you check out our selection of hostels available in Fuerteventura. Angelica is from Taiwan would love to visit Bali as it is an amazing place.

The English capital city of London was suggested by Dietlinde from Vienna, while Aileen from Malaysia will be backpacking around the UK for a month to take in some of the nature! Fiona really wants to visit Italy while Kristi from Texas would love to go back to Toronto
The winter is hitting hard in Australia according to Megan so if she could escape it and visit the Northern hemisphere Miami would be her first stop!

South America featured a lot amongst the places our facebook fans would love to visit. Issel is from Chile but is hoping to travel around Brazil early next year. Tainá would love to be travelling around Brazil right now even if it is winter there at the moment! Paul in the US would love to visit Brazil also this year and Costa Rica too while he’s there. Jose is from San Diego and he too would love to visit Costa Rica as he has heard it is a beautiful place. Jacob is making a trip to Peru in September, Juanjose also suggested Peru but Lima in particular, while Vincent in France is looking forward to a trip to Bolivia in August. Jennifer from New Zealand has travelled a lot with her favourite places being Turkey and Greek Island of Naxos. She’s also about to embark on a three month trip around South America starting off in Buenos Aires, then on to Rio de Janeiro with a trip to Machu Picchu definitely on her list. We have a great selection of hostels all over South America so whether you’re lucky enough to be on a three month trip like Jennifer or just visiting for a short time, book your cheap hostels in South America here.

And finally Kwok-wah from Hong Kong, Asia wants to make a trip to Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia to broaden his vision and life experiences. He also left a great quote about his idea of travel - 'To go 10,000 miles of road is better than to read 10,000 books!'

Thanks to all of our Hostels.com facebook fans for these great suggestions and more that were posted. We hope you all get to visit the places you suggested and have a great and safe trip!
