Best Unknown Cities

Best Unknown Cities

We know the basics– Paris, London, Rome, Sydney, etc. that are well known all over the world for being some of the top places to travel. But what about some cities that are underrated and are some of the world’s hidden treasures?

  1. Sukhothai, Thailand

To begin with, people do not recognize Thailand enough for the amount of beauty and overall culture there that many are missing out on. I do not not think I know one person who has been to Thailand, but let me tell you, we’re all missing out, because this place is beautiful. Sukhothai is a small city in Thailand that has a population of 37,000 people. It began as one of the most populated and busiest cities of earlier time as it was one of Thailand’s earliest found settlements, but overtime, it began to fall into the shadows.

The city is swarming with historical sites and temple ruins. Places like the Sukhothai Heritage City are some of the prime experiences one should witness in the city as well as the Wat Maha That, the previous site of the royal kingdom. Sukhothai is a city you do not want to miss if you are interested in seeing the beauty of Asia as well as historical sites and ruins.

2. Alberobello, Italy

Although this city only has a population of 11,000, this is a city you do not want to miss. Whether you take a simple day trip or spend a few days here, Alberobello is a city that cannot be missed on your trip to Italy. The city is filled with white-stoned huts called ‘truly’. This city is noted as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is a site that I find no one would want to miss.

3. Willemstad, Curaçao

I know for me, being able to see cities that are covered in beautiful and vibrant colors is something that I do not see often. There are many cities all over the world that have their buildings painted all the colors of the rainbow, but there is just something about Willemstad. Willemstad was originally owned by the Dutch and this history of why the buildings are all colored is being in 1817, the white lime finish on the buildings was prohibited due to protecting eyesight from glaring. Willemstad is a beautiful city with a vivacious culture that anyone would be lucky to experience and be able to say that were able to see how Dutch influence left an impact on a small Caribbean town.
