Montevideo is the pleasant capital city of Uruguay, a country in South America. It is situated on the east bank of the Rio de la Plata and is the southernmost capital city in South America.

The not-so-big capital of a small country that is not often in the international news, and while not exactly a world center of gourmet gastronomy, Montevideo is a city where one can eat wonderfully and relatively cheap, with plenty of local character (no, it’s not the same cuisine as in Argentina), yet not too exotic for most tastes. via Wikitravel

Colombia’s capital is a world-class music city … officially. Here’s what else keeps it moving.
Bogota is the capital of Colombia. We know, you probably don’t know much about Bogota.
You might also be skeptical about claims that this city of an estimated 8 million people stands shoulder to shoulder with other storied South American capitals.

But with Colombia as a whole experiencing a tourist resurgence, it’s time to get familiar with its vibrant capital city.Often called the Athens of South America, the best of Bogota is a treasure of museums, art galleries, international fairs and cultural events.” via CNN Insider

Nairobi is known as the safari capital of Africa, however the city has still managed to keep up with modernization. Unlike other cities, Nairobi is surrounded by 113 km² (70 mi²) of plains, cliffs and forest that makes up the city’s Nairobi National Park. The city is filled with many things to do during the day and the night. Tourists can have their pick from numerous safaris (wildlife, cultural, sport, adventure, scenic and specialist), ecotourism tours, restaurants, culture, shopping and entertainment. While in Nairobi, tourists can also engage in numerous sports from golf, rugby, athletics, polo, horse-racing, cricket and football (soccer).

Unlike other parts of Africa plagued by Ebola and violence from religious extremist groups, Kenya remains a relatively safe and tourist-friendly destination.

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and, with a population of over eleven million inhabitants, by far its largest city. Its high-rise buildings, heavy traffic congestion, intense heat and naughty nightlife may not immediately give you the best impression — but don’t let that mislead you. It is one of Asia’s most cosmopolitan cities with magnificent temples and palaces, authentic canals, busy markets and a vibrant nightlife that has something for everyone.

 

It’s been a great year for travel deals to Asia. These deals don’t last long, though. Act now.
