With several months of summer remaining, many people are planning their last getaway for the summer. With so many options, deciding on just one place to visit can be mind-boggling. Here are five possible destinations to consider for your summer holiday.

Athens, Greece

This neoclassical city offers a contrast between old and new. Visit the prolific Acropolis as its stand as a sentinel rising above this modern city. While museums are found here with ancient ruins and art, also take in the modern side of the city by visiting a contemporary art gallery.

Macau

Now the world’s most popular gambling spot, Macau offers a wide range of casino games that matches those you can find on mobile casinos. Newer casino resorts like the Wynn cater to guests with other amenities along with gambling. On the other hand, visitors might like to partake in classic casinos in Macau like the Casino Lisboa.
