If you haven't taken a Portugal vacation yet, why not? A trip to Portugal on your holidays will bring you much joy and should be something that you do, at least once.
When you mention Portugal, most people automatically think of The Algarve. I must say that the Algarve is indeed a beautiful region of Portugal, with many things for the tourist to do. The Algarve has sun, beach and a nightlife that does not sleep. The Algarve has also got some of the Europe's most pristine beaches, abundant wildlife and serene locations that will help you get away from the party life.
But there is so much to do in Portugal, that a vacation to just one region would not do justice. This year, why not consider travelling to Portugal's North region? Portugal's North is much different, in every way, from the South. In Portugal's North region you will get a taste of history, culture and a way of life that is as far from the tourist path as you can get.
Portugal's North region is worth visiting on your Portugal Vacation, but what is most important is that you set aside time for yourself. Visiting Portugal can be quite overwhelming, because for such a small country, it has so much to offer in terms of historical buildings, festivals, carnivals, feasts and music and sites the likes you will not see anywhere else in the world.
Portugal is indeed unique in that every step you take is a step of exploration, and Portugal's North offers this in abundance. On your next Portugal Vacation, be sure to travel to Portugal's North region, to get away from the tourists and to enjoy an authentic Portuguese experience.
