4 of the Most Peaceful Destinations Around the World

For some people, traveling means going on an endless adventure. But for a few, it means basking in the quiet and tranquility of a place. If you’re someone who wants to have some peace and serenity, here are some of the most peaceful travel destinations around the world, according to 2014’s Global Peace Index:

Iceland

One of the reasons many people want not only to travel but also live here is that Iceland is known to be one of the most (if not the most) peaceful places on Earth. Despite having been stricken by a banking crisis a few years ago, it has also become one of the most progressive countries. What’s more, it has 100 percent literacy rate and a high tolerance rate, preventing crime and violence. So, while checking out its breathtaking natural attractions, including the Golden Circle, Gullfoss and Blue Lagoon, to name a few, you can be assured of being safe at all times.

Austria

After the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the World War II, this nation has stayed away from conflicts or disputes of any kind. It has also adopted rigid neutrality and has devoted a lot of its efforts in improving its standards of living and economy. Some of the sights to see here include the Hofburg Palace, St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna and Hohensalzburg Castle.

Finland

It deserves a place in this list because of its people who are known to be calm and has a placid nature. Its government has invested in healthcare and education, improving its standard of living, literacy and life expectancy. Here, you will find local attractions like Helsinki Senate Square, National Museum of Finland and Ranua Wildlife Park.

Japan

Not only is Japan known for its fascinating people, but also one of the most peaceful travel destinations to check out. The Japanese people are known for their discipline, diligence, honesty, politeness and friendliness. But what draws millions of tourists every year is its astounding beauty and attractions, like Mount Fuji, Tokyo Imperial Palace, Tokyo DisneySea and Fushimi Inari-taisha.
