Hidden Treasures | Places around the world that are not famous but are worth visiting

Usually people stick to touristy places but if you dig more, talk to fellow traveller and research for sometime you would come up with some amazing places that are still hidden in plain sight. While all of the well-known wonders in the world are definitely worth visiting (why else would they be well-known?), it’s sometimes nice to get a bit off of the beaten path and experience the cultural and natural wonders of the world – especially if it means fewer crowds. 
 
There are some tourist attractions that can’t be missed: The Vatican in Rome, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Westminster Abbey in London. These are the kinds of places friends and family expect travellers to go. But there are plenty of places to see that are under the radar; often known only by locals. 
 
These places are like hidden treasures waiting to be discovered, and being travel bloggers our self, we know for a fact that only hyped tourist places are not only the ones which are worth seeing, there are places which rarely spoken off, rarely visited but are marvellous when you witness them.  In today’s article we bring to you a list of  places that aren’t famous but are worth visiting.
