The 101 Ultimate Cute Travel Bucket List around the World


I have always been fascinated with cute cafes, shops, food and pretty much anything kawaii (Japanese themed cuteness).  Whenever I travel, it has always been my mission to seek out cute places and activities to do.  And what I have realized is that, there are so many cute places in the world (especially in Japan), a lifetime is not even enough to see all of them.  Sometimes it can get a bit difficult finding cute places but you just have to keep on searching.   And once you find it, it feels like a pure bliss of happiness.

I would like to share with you, ‘My Ultimate Cute Travel Bucket List’.  It has been a long time coming, but I have finally managed to jot down 101 cute travel lists.  The list is somewhat incomplete (still), but it can be a starter bucket list.  Feel free to get inspired with this bucket list to start your own cute travel adventures.   Enjoy!
