Travel - a pastime that is loved by celebrities, and occurs whenever celebrities get a break from their busy schedules.

Celebrities like Somizi, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Jay Z, and Justin Bieber have all had their share of travelling around the world and choosing to relax in the sun or explore the Great Wall of China.

5 destinations that are loved by celebrities:


1. Amalfi Coast, Italy

The Amalfi Coast is a dream destination that is framed for an old style or romantic film - it’s natural beauty is that hypnotising.

Visiting small towns like Positano or hiking to the top of Ravello mountain, Amalfi attracts everyone from the culture lovers to the adventure seeker or the laid-back tourist.

Celebrities like Justin Bieber, power couple Beyoncé and Jay Z, and Mariah Carey have all travelled there.

2. Maldives


The Maldives is a favourite destination for both celebrities and regular travellers who desire the beach and the sunlight without major changes in the weather.

It’s white sand and clear ocean allows visitors to dive and explore what the ocean as to offer, or lie in the luxe chalets and resorts before dining in some of Maldives’ finest cuisine.

Amanda Du Pont is one of the big names who have travelled to the islands, along with British singer Rochelle Humes.

3. Paris 

Popularly known as the city of love, Paris is always a favourite for a holiday destination - whether you go as a family, or for a romantic holiday, Paris is usually the top destination.

With so much to offer, travellers get to delve into the city’s colourful history, dine in authentic French food and shop at some of the most luxurious stores in the world.

Celebrities love to share their love for travelling, which is what Somizi did when he flew to Paris with his partner and ended up popping the question and adding a love lock to the famous bridge.
