Most Colorful Cities in The World: Part II

(Last Updated On: December 10, 2017)

I thought that I can capture the most colorful cities in one post, and how wrong I was? These kinds of posts are very difficult to write because our amazing world is so big and it is a daunting task to try to make a generalization like I am trying to do here. Well, after all, this is a subjective post of cities that amazed me on the first look and I thought to share it with my audience.

Curacao, Caribbean

Curacao is a paradise on Earth with its hidden beaches and breathtaking coastal line. The island is located near Venezuela  and its capital is Willemstad. We are going to the Caribbean for its old town center this time. The buildings are pastel colored and lively thanks to the eternal summer all year round.

Jodhpur, India

Jodhpur is a very popular tourist destination. Maybe the name will confuse you because this city is mostly known as the Blue City. That is because almost every building in the city is built in some shade of blue.

Ecuador, South America

Ecuador is a country that has an array of wonders squeezed into it. Starting with the Amazonian rainforest and ending with the Andes and so many other activities in between like national parks and Iguana spotting in the Galapagos. But this time we are heading to the capital city that is situated somewhere high in the Andes, Quito and its colorful buildings.

Faroe Island

Faroe Islands is another off the radar destination. Situated in the north Atlantic this archipelago has much to offer. These grass roofed churches and colorful cottages will leave you speechless.

Guanajuato, Mexico

Guanajuato is a Mexico`s dream city and it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This city with colonial buildings and brightly colored houses was founded back in the 1559. Walk the cobblestone streets that will take you to a fine marketplace or a museum.   

Havana, Cuba

Havana, the capital city of Cuba, has been a dream of mine for such a long time. Walking in this city you feel like you are trapped in time while listening to salsa music and take part in one of the many open air parties.

Helgoland, Germany

Helgoland is a small archipelago in the North Sea. This is a destination that will attract holiday makers who really want to relax. There is no car traffic at all so you can enjoy the peace and quiet here. The best way to go is by boat from Hamburg , Cuxhaven or Busum and you can spend up to 4 hours on the island which is enough for a day trip.

Honfleur, France

Honfleur is a small commune situated on the estuary where the Seine river meets the English Channel. The town is proud of its traditional buildings and houses. If you want to visit the town for a day trip the best way is to get there by bus.

Mali Losinj

Mali Losinj is a town that is situated on a small island on the Adriatic Sea. The water is emerald and perfect for swimming during the season, and if you happen to visit off the season Mali Losinj is perfect for hiking. The highest peak is Televrina and it is 589m which offers some stunning views.

Naples, Italy

Naples is a city in the southern Italy that is overshadowed by some of the major cities like Rome, Milan and Venice. The city of Naples is also known as an open-air museum, because everywhere you look the view is stunning. The historic center of Naples is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

So, find a cheap flight on TripAdvisor and book your ticket today to one of these magical places and see it for yourself because as the Asian Proverb goes it is always: “Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.”

Where to stay while in Europe

If you are planning a trip to one of these beautiful places you can check availability on since this is the best and the most reliable website that I always use for finding accommodation.

Another great option is to rent a place through Airbnb. You can find great rooms and apartments since there are a lot of great options. You can use this code to get $27 free AirBnb credit.
