It's this time of the year again. Is the good 'ol turkey ready to become the star of your Thanksgiving dinner?
Half of the people may be busy looking for new recipes to prepare for such a wonderful celebration, while the other half's trying to weigh the options on whether to go home or not for this holiday. As a kid, you might not have experienced thinking and worrying about what to do, what to wear, and when to finish your endless list of tasks for Thanksgiving, but now that you've grown up, decision-making becomes the hardest part.
If you're a thousand (or more) miles away from home, it's surely a tough call. With all of your friends' Instagram stories of doing groceries and running for last-minute errands, it's a major FOMO moment for you. This dilemma would only make your head and heart hurt, but come to think of it — Thanksgiving happens only once a year, so you better make the most out of it.
It'll sure be a warm and overwhelming feeling to go back home and to reunite with your family, friends, and of course, your pet. Topics to be discussed over the Thanksgiving dinner may seem awkward especially if you're in college, but that's the essence of it all — the fun, laughter, reminiscing, and the quality time spent together.
If you've got spare time, this holiday break may also be a chance to unwind and relax. Go to your favorite tourist spot as a child, visit your relatives, drive across towns, or spend a day at the beach. These moments, for sure, are the ones that you long for, so do not waste time, and save those memories so you could always remember them!

At the mention of the word ‘ savanna”, your mind probably wanders to the vast grassy plains of Africa. But do you know that there are actually a few savannas in the world that are worthy of your attention? Even more surprising, some of the best ones are located in Indonesia, ready to be explored to your heart’s content. So without further ado, let’s unleash our inner Simba or Nala, it’s time to roam here in our 5 picks of the most beautiful savannas in the world:
Said to be a major inspiration to the movie Lion King, the Serengeti goes as far as the eye can see- and then some more. The seemingly endless grassland is located in Tanzania, Africa and is one of Africa’s most classic safari destinations. It’s the home of the Big Five, over 500 species of birds and Agrica’s most well-known great wildebeest migration.
With countless tour packages available for your choosing, more and more attractions are introduced including hot air balloon, camping, walking safaris and so on. Excitement aside, nothing beats the tranquility of just sitting and waiting for sunset or admiring the landscape up close.
Home to East Sumba’s savanna, the grassland expanse is an iconic jewel that will struck any traveler with an awe-inspiring wonder. Just a 30-minute drive from Waingapu, the open stretches of grassland gets even more dramatic with backdrop of rolling hills at one side and oceanic stretch at the other. Cue in the galloping sandalwood horses and there you have it, the best nature scene one could ever wish for.
In fact, the golden-yellow savanna and blue skies have made the screen plenty of times in the movies. It’s also a highly-requested prewedding location, all thanks to the beach that is adjacent to the meadow with the same name.
The Palouse is the most serene and pastoral of the seven wonders of Washington. Located in the Southeast area of the state, the grassland boasts a unique landscape that is also a designated wheat and barley plantations. As the produce matures from time to time, the Palouse changes in colors too, from lush shades of green in Spring to crispy harvest brown in summer.
The meadow is a gem that captivates the hearts of many photographers, ready to hunt for the next most picturesque memory under the sun. One thing is for sure, with such wonderful sight to see, any shot is going to be as good as it gets.
We’re not kidding when we say some of the best savannas in the world is in Indonesia. Just check out our next contender, Savana Selo that is nicknamed after the pathway to reach it. With the majestic mount Merbabu as the backdrop, you can expect to find a few savanna spots, all with the same exotic yet carefree panorama. The beauty often stops hikers in their tracks, inviting them to take a long rest while absorbing the fresh view it has to offer.
Plenty of other mountains in Indonesia also share the same geographical feature of mountainous savannas. To name a few, there are Mount Sindoro, Mount Lawu, Mount Bromo, Mount Argopura and the list continues! So if you are yet to step foot in Africa or other foreign countries, Nusantara beckons your savanna visit anytime of the day.
Nothing gets more instagrammable than the stretch of lovely pink savanna in the form of one endless park. It’s one of the most visited places in Korea during autumn, the pinkish and violet grass sway dreamily like one huge fluffy carpet.
The pink sea of flowers is not the only thing that you get to enjoy, because Nari Park also houses many different other floral species that share one thing in common : extra prettiness! Just get your camera ready and prepare to experience a day of natural beauty at its finest height.
