Stockholm is the top destination choice for tourists heading to Sweden. This centrally-located city has it all: history, nightlife, restaurants, and an almost unending list of sightseeing options, attractions, and museums. While Stockholm’s central districts are filled with highlights, it is also possible to find a lot of great activities and sightseeing options outside of the city. Whether you want to explore ancient Swedish lore, cruise between islands in search of the perfect beach, or appreciate the underrated natural beauty of Sweden, there are plenty of options to choose from.
Here are the five most worthwhile ideas for day trips from Stockholm.
Stockholm sits at the heart of the Scandinavian restaurant scene. Traditional flavors can be found at some spots, while the much buzzed about New Scandinavian cooking is heavily featured as well. And, since it is a hub for Northern Europe, Stockholm also has flavors from around the world. One common criticism is that the best restaurants in Stockholm are very expensive. This is true, although many foodies will find that it is worth the price. But there are plenty of budget options here as well (if you know where to go).
Here is where to find some of the best restaurants in Stockholm no matter what your budget is.
Boracay is a small island in Philippines. Located just a few kilometers off the northwest corner of the Panaj island, it belongs to Western Visayas island-group. It is famous mainly for the white sand beaches and bright, crystal clear water. The main attraction for tourists is White Beach or also called Long Beach by the locals which is a 4 km long stretch of white, powdery sand and has a very clean, transparent water in a light turquoise shade. About 30 years ago this wide, beautiful beach could be admired also by the quiet beach lovers like me. In the past few decades Boracay’s beaches had been ranked among the best in the world which has led to the accelerated development of tourist industry in this area, especially White Beach. Today White Beach is known for its wild parties and nightclubs, a big variety of restaurants and a crowded shopping place called D’mall.
The good news is White Beach is not the only one in Boracay! Boracay has 13 beaches scattered all over its shores and to be honest they are just as much beautiful as the White beach, some of them even more. If you enjoy privacy, peacefulness, the sound of waves, fresh air and a complete relaxation, you should check the following list of the best secluded Boracay beaches.
