The year 2021 has been marked by some of the highest temperatures recorded in recent times. This has lead millions of tourists to find salvation from the sun in popular destinations around the globe. Not to mention the fact that traveling is something that was taken away from many people in 2020 and that there’s some catching up to do. However, the global Covid pandemic is still present and poses quite a big obstacle.
That is why many travelers have decided to stick to the countries with the highest vaccination rates, which offer a good balance of tourist attractions and health and safety protocols. Today, we round up a list of such countries, helping you to narrow down the choice as much as possible. Here is where you can start.
Visiting Japan ahead of the Olympic games might seem like a weird choice, but considering that sports venues will not have a live audience, it turns out that you’ll probably be able to avoid major crowds without any issues.
While the vaccination rate in Japan is not the highest, especially compared to some other countries from the list, the number of only 17 new cases of Covid per week is an encouraging thing to see. In case you might be interested, the vaccination rate currently stands at 31%, but that figure is only going to improve in the future.
With a vaccination rate of 70% and only 12 new cases weekly, Canada presents one of the safer options for tourists who are looking for countries with the lowest number of Covid-related cases. Unfortunately, Canada was also struck by a heatwave, but we hope that the climate will soon be back to normal.
It goes without saying that this country possesses some of the most gorgeous natural scenery in the world and tourists will definitely enjoy it if they take it as their number one destination in the upcoming weeks.
United Arab Emirates
Known globally as one of the most luxurious destinations, the UAE is also a place where 76% of the population received a vaccine for Covid. This is one of the most impressive rates in the world, and it seems that the local population are doing everything they can to return back to normal life.
Tourists are slow to return to UAE, so if you choose to visit it now, you might receive a rare opportunity to see what the place looks like when it’s not absolutely swarmed by tourists. If you had seconds thoughts about coming to this country, you may want to cash in on this amazing opportunity.
The United Kingdom is one of the leading countries in Europe when it comes to vaccination rates, as they were able to provide it for 68% of the general population. However, the UK is faced with a rather significant problem. Despite the high vaccination rates, they still average 494 new and unique cases of Covid every week.
These numbers are bound to level out sooner rather than later, but it’s still something to keep in mind. With such a great nation comes an illustrious heritage, and London and other cities are bound to impress you with their unique blend of modern and traditional architecture. Any person who calls himself a traveler needs to visit it at least once. Whether that will happen now or later down the line, we will leave the choice up to you.
The two countries share a lot of common history, as they’ve been friends and foes many times over the centuries. They also have another thing in common, they present good destinations for people who want to travel in the year 2021.
While France has a lower percentage of the population who have received a vaccine, standing at 53%, the number of new cases is for now stable at 64 cases per week. France is also one of the most popular tourist destinations and millions of people flock to this place in order to enjoy its beauty. Are you going to be one of them?
