Do you remember last year, when we posted an article on the Top 18 Places You Need To Visit In 2016? Well, 2016 will be ending in a few months and we still haven't satisfied our wanderlust bug yet! So we've narrowed down the list to just 5 destinations. Hopefully we'll be able to tick at least one of these off from our bucket list by the end of the year 😉

1. Norway
Northern-Lights
If catching the northern lights has always been on your bucket list, 2016 is the year for you to make it a reality! After this year, they’re expected to appear less frequently in the next decade so start booking your tickets now! This is definitely the year to see the aurora borealis in all its beauty.
2. Taipei

(Yes, it’s halal of course) Not to mention that if you’re on a budget trip, Taipei’s definitely the place to experience Chinese culture! [caption id="attachment_4267" align="alignnone" width="900"]

3. Hokkaido
Hokkaido
This is one destination you have to visit soon because it’s going to be Winter – aka ski season! Feast your eyes on blankets of powder snow and perhaps pick up a snow sport or two! #HHWT tip: Check out our guide on Muslim-friendly Japanese eateries in Hokkaido!
4. Cordoba, Spain

Learn about the rich history behind the city that's considered to be the spiritual heart of Islamic Spain. Visit the most important Islamic monument in the West - the Great Mosque, and immerse yourself in the Spanish art and culture of Cordoba! #HHWT tip: Don’t forget to visit Granada and Seville too while you’re in Spain!
5. Seychelles

Seychelles is definitely our pick if you’re looking for a country that’s not swarming with tourists and yet has amazing views. #HHWT tip: If you’re planning your honeymoon and you’re looking for a less conventional one, add Seychelles to your list! If you haven't planned or are planning to go for a year end holiday, we recommend heading to one of these destinations! 😁 [iframe seamless="seamless" style="border: none; overflow: hidden;" height="450" width="100%" scrolling="no" src="https://pollbuzz.co/frame/912?type=poll"][/iframe]
