The Best Road Trips


The Best Road Trips In the World




The only way to really see a country is by car, on the open road. The same thing holds true everywhere in the world. If you want to really get to know another country or continent, the experience of renting a car and taking to the streets will be breathtaking, awe-inspiring, and unforgettable. We asked tried and trusted travelers from all over for their top recommendations on the best countries for road trips.

The Following are the list of road trips you can take around the world:


1. ROUTE 66 – ARIZONA


Speaking of Route 66, this road trip is very different from Scotland's incredible coast.

We have driven many different portions of Route 66, but you can drive this entire route from Chicago to California.

Much of the 3,940km route is abandoned and decrepit as it was forgotten when the highway system was put in place, but there are parts that have been turned into national scenic byways in Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, and Arizona.


2. Great Ocean Road, Australia


This drive made it into the top five of UK traveller’s wishlists for road trips they wanted to do, and I can definitely see why – I enjoyed it so much the first time I drove it that I did it twice more!

For those of you not familiar with this road trip, it’s a stretch of road in the state of Victoria, that runs along the south coast of the state from Melbourne in a westerly direction for around 150 miles.


3. Historic Columbia River Highway in Oregon



Hop on the 74-mile Columbia River Highway just outside of Portland, Oregon, and prepare to see stunning waterfalls, rivers, bridges, and mountains as your travel along the Columbia River Gorge. Most of the historic route follows U.S. Route 30 and Oregon Route 35, though a portion now runs concurrent with I-84 between Portland and The Dalles. You can complete the 48-mile road trip from Portland to the Hood River in just a day, or extend it to two days by staying overnight at a lodge or campsite.


4. Route 62, South Africa


Shift driving works best along this long tourist route stretching between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, with stops at dozens of non-boozy attractions splintering off the main path, such as cliffs, fauna, rivers, valleys and plains.
The hot mineral springs and private Roman baths at the Warmwaterberg Spa are a godsend for shoulder muscles after hours of driving.
Alternatively a two-day hike on the famed Donkey Trail over the Swartberg Mountains will get the blood pumping again before the next stretch of road.
The Klaasvoogds Game Reserve further along Route 62 is speckled with black wildebeest, leopard tortoise and Burchell's zebra.


5.The Atlantic Road, Norway


The overpass dips during this journey can be experienced between Kristiansund and Molde, and regular vicious storms in the area intensify the ride.The dark 80-meter long Bremsnes Cave, found at the Bremsneshatten Mountain, is well worth a visit.
Scuba diving off the shore during the winter months is a must-do. Marine life in this area is abundant and visibility reaches up to 60 meters. Book a trip with Strømsholmen Sea Sports Center.

16 Countries Around The World Where Prostitution Is Legal

16 Countries that have legalized prostitution around the world For quite a long time now, the oldest job in the world has been regarded as a hateful, fallen option of employment.
