You’re unlikely to find tourist menus These are family-run joints and many of them have been open for generations in short ultra now seemingly does the impossible by offering up the architectural beauty people seek in Florence an abundance of green space and traditional Florentine food while also feeling modern trendy and fashionable Old. Havana, havana cuba the nightlife in Cuba’s capital is the stuff of legend But the city has so much more to offer than the debauchery that first made it famous with artists and writers in the 1920s Cuba as a nation has a true unique history one that’s resulted in a rich highly localized culture that needs to be Experienced firsthand to properly be appreciated it is a place of music food and dance populated by an incredibly industrious people who waste little and cherish their traditions But nowhere is all of this more evident or concentrated than in Havana Vieja in one sense Old Havana lives up to its name the buildings show their age and the streets are lined with vintage cars that have been kept running out of necessity rather than Nostalgia, and yet to call it old-fashioned wouldn’t be accurate the many cafes nightclubs restaurants bars Fruit vendors and tobacco sellers imbue the entire neighborhood with a zest for life rooted very firmly in the present Street art covers the walls and music fills the air contrary to popular belief Havana is also an incredibly safe City nowadays. So trust us when we say that old. Havana will not disappoint Peckham London, England The big smoke is one of the most historically important and storage cities in the world One could easily spend a month there and barely begin to make a dent in all that the city has to offer from historic sites And cultural institutions to world-renowned restaurants and endless possibilities for shoppers for that reason It’s important to put in the research and figure out what your priorities are before you get there Regardless of your travel style Peckham should be high on your list This is London at its trendiest and most exciting and yet it somehow remains completely unpretentious Peckham is a multicultural neighborhood with strong roots, but one that’s apparently undaunted by change.

Even as people catch on to its gritty charms the locals ensure that it maintains its integrity as a neighborhood of art Counterculture values and underground music. It’s often described as bohemian or a hipster haven, but that doesn’t really do the area justice Shimokitazawa is utterly unique from the abundance of thrift stores arcades and vintage shops to the countless little bars independent cafes and affordable But tasty hole-in-the-wall restaurants this neighbourhood feels like one big treasure hunt with gems around every corner Perhaps most importantly, however, it is without a doubt the heart of Tokyo’s indie music scene Check out this other recent clip for mojo travels and be sure to subscribe and ring the bell to be notified about our latest videos You

  1. Leaving behind San Blas in Cusco, Santa Teresa in Rio and the historical quarters of Ouro Preto in Brazil? Ok… this list is crap.

  2. I really loved the idea for this video because that is how I plan my trips, by neighborhood. But there was not a lot of information on what specifically is great about these neighborhoods. Just alot of " trust me, it's awesome" . Show more and be more specific.
