10 travel experiences you must have once

These are 10 travel experiences you must have once (and only once) either for the ultimate adrenaline rush they offer or because they are too expensive to try a second time round. Here goes the list:

1. Ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower

The view from the top of the Eiffel Tower is spectacular and the joy of looking at Paris from its most iconic structure is priceless. However, given the large number who turn up to take a ride to the top of the tower daily, be prepared to wait a good 3 to 4 hours to get from the bottom of the tower to the top. If you want to experience the same spectacular view a second time, go to the Montparnasse Tower instead. The view from here is breathtaking and you can also catch sight of the Eiffel Tower.

2. Visit the "coffeeshops" in Amsterdam

You will never really find “coffee shops” like the ones in the city of Amsterdam anywhere else in the world. One experience just for the sake of it and you will know why it is worth it but only once.

3. Run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain

What started as a way to get the bulls to the marketplace quickly, is now an annual tradition in Pamplona, Spain. The adrenal rush of trying to outrun the bulls set free in the barricaded route is unbeatable. However, do keep in mind that lot of people get seriously injured during the run.

4. Go to Oktoberfest

, is expensive and over-crowded. But the beer, amazing food and good cheer definitely make it an experience worth trying once.

5. Visit the top of the Empire State Building

A view of New York’s skyline from the 86th floor of the Empire State Building is an absolutely amazing experience. However, given that the ticket for the top deck will set you back by USD 46 (INR 2760), it’s probably worth the visit only once.

6. Go clubbing in Las Vegas

Getting inside the velvet rope, not waiting in the line, getting the best table in the nightclub and, of course, a bottle service of your favourite drink, you can get it all and a lot more at Las Vegas.

You can go clubbing like a VIP in Vegas, but it all comes with a huge price tag. But hey, if you can can afford it, go ahead. Splurging on this once-in-a-lifetime experience is completely worth it.

7. See the Sistine Chapel

Michelangelo’s amazing frescos on the ceilings of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City are beyond spectacular. They are one of the finest examples of the artist’s work. Given that no cameras are allowed inside the chapel, it is a good idea to see masterpieces such as The Creation of the World and The Expulsion of Adam and Eve atleast once.

8. Stay at The Ranch at Live Oak in Malibu, California

While you see the beautiful sunsets in California for free, you would be paying a very hefty bill for staying at this beautiful spa property. The stay comes with yoga sessions, relaxing massages, organic meals and, of course, a luxurious room. This experience will rejuvenate you for sure, but you would probably not be returning in a hurry. Although a very, very expensive one, this is one of the best travel experiences you must have once.

9. Attend a closing party in Ibiza

Ibiza being the party capital of Spain goes all out during the end of season. One all-night party is enough to keep you going for the rest of your stay here.

10. Have the Frrrozen Haute Chocolate at Serendipity, New York

The hot chocolate at Serendipity, New York, is no ordinary one. At USD 25000, it has a blend of 28 cocoas and 5 grams of 24 carat gold. The goblet is served with an 18 carat gold bracelet with 1 carat of diamonds and a USD 250 La Madeline au Truffe tops it. With this price, it is sheer indulgence and you should probably do it just once.
