Africa

Africa, the world’s second largest and second most populous continent! Boy it would be a nice trip to visit Africa. So many islands to see, so many animals to see, just so many amazing views to witness in person. I’ve always had an interest in Africa after finding out the continent’s features a large diversity of ethnicities, culture, and language. The population as well is an impressive establishment to know about Africa. I believe there would be so much great people to spend time with in Africa and they would welcome you with open arms any time you visit there.

Being a big shopper, the first town I would visit is Marrakesh. Marrakesh features so many shopping places that showcases so much of their history’s culture. So many antiques to see that a buyer can’t pass up on, I know it would be hard for me to pass on. Along with some local music performances, this town is pretty much the entertainment aspect of Africa. Their gardens are also worth checking out. You can witness nice gardens such as the Majorelle Garden, the Menara Gardens, the El Badi Palace, and much more. Overall, Marrakesh would be a great town to check out.

Another place I would like to check out is Cairo. Cairo features almost everything you’d like to know about the Egyptian culture. From the looks of it, Cairo has some amazing looking pyramids to check out and their fortress looks astonishing. One building I definitely want to check out in person is the Mosque of Muhammad Ali. That place just looks incredible! The building was created in memory of Muhammad Ali’s oldest son, Tusun Pasha, who died in 1816. This building is the one of the main tourist attractions in Cairo and can be seen directly when approaching Cairo from any direction. The Giza Pyramid Complex is something in awe to see in person. This place features the three Great Pyramids: Khufu/Cheops, Khafre/Chephren, and Menkaure. These pyramids are actually listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World during the Hellenistic times! Pretty cool! If you’re looking for some interesting Egyptian history, Cairo is the place to check out.

Last but certainly not least, Cape Town! The capital of South Africa, Cape Town is a great places for amazing mountain views. This town just looks so beautiful, from its mountain views to ocean views. Hikers would love it here. I’m not much of an hiker myself but whenever I do show up to Cape Town, I wouldn’t resist climbing on some of their mountains. Table Mountain National Park looks like it has an mountaintop that can’t be missed. Standing on top of that mountain would feel like you’re on top of the world. The Cape of Good Hope looks amazing too especially with its view of the ocean. Located on the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula in South Africa, this place is the southern tip of Africa. Lastly, Cape Point is a great place to view the ocean as well. Along with an 1800s lighthouse, Cape Point features peaks that are in awe to see in person. Once you walk along those peaks and witness the views of the ocean, you’ll feel like you wouldn’t want to leave.

Africa is just an astonishing continent that I would love to visit in the future. So much cultures, so much history, and a big population. I recommend any traveler to check out Africa and to witness its glory in persons. That’s a trip I sure wouldn’t miss!
