For those familiarized with traveling, Italy rates high on the list of the most appealing traveling destinations around the world. This year’s event relies on thousands upon thousands of pilgrims to enter the papal basilicas, whose gates are usually locked from the general public. The Pope Francis will host the event and it is expected to be even more impressive than the one held 16 years ago, in 2000. At that time, 25 million people joined the magnificent gathering.
- Setouchi Art Festival in Japan
If you are attracted to the Japanese culture, there is no better time to savor it than now. The Setouchi Sea is located between Honshu and Shikoku and it will host an art festival, with plenty of Museums and art exhibits you will never see anywhere else in the world.
- Kumbh Mela in Haridwar, India
Since this is a Hindu religious festival, it may not appeal to all of you, but regardless of your religious stances, you should go visit it. It will be an experience you will never forget. It is only held once every 3 years, but it compensates for lasting about 3 months and attracting up to 100 million people. It is quite a visually enriched phenomenon, which includes naked holy men, seeking to cleanse their cow dung covered bodies in the river, in order to purify themselves.

It starts in September, every 3 years and it allows for a one night free arts event, where you can visit all the art galleries, museums and art displays everywhere in the city without paying anything.
