We all need a little bit of holiday inspirations now and then to get us going. And who better to give the most amazing ideas than from people who globetrote for living? Yes, we’re talking about the people who are lucky enough to travel the corners of world and look good while they are at it too. We asked some of our most favorite influencers about their holiday recommendation and what makes it a visit-worthy destination. Check out their recommended destinations below:

Cindy Karmoko: Iceland

Her passion for fashion brought her to the spotlight, but it’s really her impeccable style that wins our hearts. Cindy Karmoko is a self-confessed shoe addict who chronicles her life journey, OOTDs, fashion inspirations and more in her visual diary since 2011.

As her style evolves through the years, so does her travelling adventure. From Bolzano to Taiwan and Sydney to Milan, Cindy’s love for beauty in the world continues through her next destination which she shared with us.

“There are many countries on my bucket list, but Iceland is at the top of it. I’ve personally never been there, but I’ve heard lots of great things about it, particularly about its beauty. I’m looking forward to hunting for the aurora lights!”

Kenny Santana: Iceland

With over 50K followers on his Instagram, Kenny is not a stranger in the world of instatravel. His account, @kartupostinsta, is a wanderlust-inducing gallery filled with exotic destinations, intense photographic proofs and dreamy colorful vibes, making him one of our most favorite travel influencers of all.

For his end-of-year holiday, Kenny chooses everyone’s favorite destination on earth - Iceland. The reason is none other than to experience again the surreal and phenomenal Aurora Borealis in the winter through his own eyes. To him, this otherworldly spot is one of the most unforgettable places he’s ever been in his life.

When we asked them to name a destination for holiday inspiration, their pick goes to Positano. The beauties have had a chance to visit the coastal paradise of Italy one October and dreamed of reminiscing the breezy sunny days while frolicking in style. With a great pick like this, we can’t help but agree.

Her profile says it all - a travel and lifestyle gypsy. Her love for life exploration includes a wide variety of things, but you can always count on her instagallery @jovitaayu for shots of vivid blue skies, endless waters, the greenest landscape and snippets of her interesting life.

She dished out her travel recommendation and it’s no surprise that this globetrotter picks London, UK for her year-end holiday. The Christmas spirit and full-on holiday vibes are the main reason for her selection, as she continued with more “ London is full with pretty lights that complement all the beautiful buildings! Plus the old and new experience at the Seine River bank was definitely amazing. The fireworks were one of the world’s best!”

THE LION KING: 5 Most Beautiful Savannas In The World
20 Jun 2019PLACESBY SweetEscape

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. To celebrate the release of the new Disney's Photo-Realistic Animation THE LION KING, 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:

1. Real Life Lion King

Serengeti (Africa)

by Chelsey for SweetEscape in Cape Town

Said to be a major inspiration to the movie Lion King, the Serengeti which is located near Cape Town (www.sweetescape.com/en/cities/capetown) 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 Africa’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.

2. The Stunning Jewel of Sumba

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.

3. The Soothing Colors of Nature

Palouse, Washington (USA)

by Fredy for SweetEscape in Seattle

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.

5. Pretty in Pink

Nari Park, Seoul (South Korea)

by Hendry for SweetEscape in Seoul

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.
