Things to do
Collected by AFAR Traveler
Well, While I'm there, I should at least do this.
Port de la Conférence, 75008 Paris, France
This photo is about romance. It’s about being together with someone you love in Paris. This will take a little planning. You are going to a bridge on the Seine near the Musee D’Orsay known as the Pont Des Arts. It is a stylish pedestrian only...
39 Rue du Roi de Sicile, 75004 Paris, France
Most visitors venture to the Marais for two things: falafel and shopping. I go for the gelato. Unlike the majority of Italian ice cream shops who brandish their mountainous flavors in the windows to entice passersby, Pozzetto (Italian owned and...
บวกครกหลวง หมู่ที่ 1 ซอยร่มเย็น Tambon Nong Pa Khrang, Amphoe Mueang Chiang Mai, Chang Wat Chiang Mai 50000, Thailand
I always forgot how much fun you can have with a Tripod at night. My mother, friend and I were staying at the Dara Dhevi Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Chiang Mai when I took this photograph. This was the most beautiful place I have ever seen, and...
Pa Yup Nai, Wang Chan District, Rayong, Thailand
Accompany elephants as they make their way to a “retirement” park in Northern Thailand after careers in trekking camps. The project is an attempt both to give the elephants a more pleasant, natural life andto rebuild the bonds between the animals...
Chinatown, Boston, MA, USA
After spending a day walking around Boston--eating yum cha in Chinatown, going to the Institute of Contemporary Art, navigating through a pop-up street market--we decided we were a little peckish. As soon as we exited the arches designating...
Saiwaicho, Narita, Chiba Prefecture 286-0028, Japan
I had an eight-hour layover in Tokyo (Narita). After doing a lot of research, I realized that I wouldn't have enough time to go into Tokyo without feeling incredibly rushed to get back to the airport to catch my connection home. Instead, I decided...
Dionysiou Areopagitou 3, Athina 117 42, Greece
After a hot and crowded visit to the breathtaking Acropolis, I enjoyed a wonderful treat of fresh Greek yogurt with my choice of unique toppings. On that particular day, I selected candied bergamot, crushed biscuits, and almond slivers. If that...
132 Pankhabari Road Fatak, Kurseong, West Bengal 734203, India
Every morning India is brought to life with fresh hot chai. You can grab it everywhere. From the purveyor chanting “Chai, Chai, Chai!” as he works his way up the train to a tiny stall set up by the street corner. It is the life blood of India and...
Via S. Giovanni Maggiore Pignatelli, 48, 80134 Napoli NA, Italy
Face it, you haven't really had 'real' pizza unless you jumped on a plane or train or any other type of transportation and got yourself to Napoli, in southern Italy and ordered a PIZZA! As Carly Simon sang for the James Bond movie, "Nobody Does It...
Padua, Province of Padua, Italy
Few things are more synonymous with Italy than rich, creamy gelato, and nowhere did I find better gelato than at Los Andes Gelateria in Padua, located at 43 Via Monsignor Fortin. A husband and wife couple from South America own Los Andes, and...
Viale Vaticano, 99, 00165 Roma RM, Italy
The Sistine Chapel wasn't painted in one day, so don't pressure yourself either - take a break during your visit there at the Vatican Museum, have a cup of espresso and snack, recharge, and be amazed again by the beautiful arts inside of the...
Piazza della Trinità dei Monti, 2, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
Ciampini has all the required three Ps (that's a thing, right?): People-watching, prime piazza location, and perfect cappuccini to make it the most coveted caffè bar in Rome. From 8 a.m. to after dark, Rome's best-dressed flock to Piazza...
Rue de Pineau, 37190 Azay-le-Rideau, France
I lived in France for a bit and with every day my love continues to grow beyond any words could ever describe. One of my favorite parts was visiting the centuries old architecture still standing representing the rich pride the French have for...
1 Avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy, 75014 Paris, France
