1. Gatlinburg, Tennessee
September and October are the best months to visit Gatlinburg. When the fall foliage is at its peak, summer and October are the two busiest seasons in Gatlinburg. July is the busiest month of the summer season, while October weekends attract the most visitors. Doing a little bit of research before you visit can also help you prepare for an awesome experience.
With an abundance of activities, shows, restaurants, and, of course, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg is a popular vacation destination. While visiting Gatlinburg can create lasting vacation experiences, there are a few things you should know before you go.

2. Carova Beach, North Carolina
The Outer Banks is a natural place to exhale, but Carova, the northernmost outpost, is particularly peaceful, considering its location on the banks. There are no hotels or shops here; only vacation houses are available, and access requires a 4×4 car. And it’s all about the beach here: 11 miles of sand, mostly deserted even in the summer, where you can swim in the always-temperate seas, surf, paddleboard, or do nothing.
Carova’s wild mustangs roam the island, which means you’re likely to spend some time creating the ideal Instagram collage. Maintain a safe distance: the horses are wild, so there is no bonding à la Black Stallion.
3.Palopo Casa, Guatemala
Guatemala does not lack stunning natural marvels, and Lago de Atitlán, or Lake Atitlan, is undoubtedly one of the most impressive. This enthralling volcanic caldera is famous for its mountainous scenery and beautiful lakeside towns. The lovely Casa Palopó is an excellent place for savoring its highland lake setting, as it provides sweeping views of Lake Atitlan and its magnificent mountains from a hilltop, lakefront location. Its uniquely built, Mayan-inspired rooms are perfect for visitors seeking a peaceful getaway. They are complemented by a casual restaurant, an infinity pool, and a serene patio overlooking the lake.
4. The Maldives
There’s a reason the Maldives was named the world’s best spa destination by the World Spa Awards. When it comes to self-pampering, this beautiful location takes the cake. The Maldives, comprised of coral atolls in the Indian Ocean’s turquoise seas, is home to hundreds of tropical islands, each more beautiful than the last. Kuramathi Maldives is a luxury resort providing traditional Asian remedies and beautiful beaches, and a diving facility. Meanwhile, the sumptuous Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives in the North Malé Atoll provides luxury bungalow accommodation in a beautiful island setting, complete with excellent food and a peaceful spa.
5. Thailand’s Phuket
Phuket is without a doubt one of Thailand’s most popular destinations, attracting an unending stream of tourists with its beautiful beaches and laid-back attitude. However, this does not negate that it is also one of the most peaceful vacation locations. Indeed, Phuket may be a haven for relaxation. The northernmost parts of the island’s western shore include a long length of Hat Mai Khao beach, protected as part of Sirinat National Park. Due to its isolated position, it is one of the most tranquil areas on the island, with golden beaches and crystal clear seas. To the south, places like Anantara Layan Phuket Resort offer luxury villa accommodations, excellent restaurants, and pristine beaches.
