In case you missed it: Philippine passport holders can now travel to 67 international destinations without a visa, according to the 2019 Henley Passport Index report. In 2015, we had visa-free access to only 60 countries. Click here to see a list of those countries and territories—in case you want to spontaneously book a flight somewhere.

While perusing the list, a few destinations stood out. Destinations with views so stunning, they spark the need to update your wardrobe, pack your suitcases, and travel the world. See some of them below:

BrazilRio de Janeiro is a color lover’s dream. This huge seaside city is best known for the sandy stretches of Copacobana and Ipanema beaches, and the 38-meter Christ the Redeemer statue on Mount Corcovado. It’s also home to the Rio Carnival, the biggest street party in the world where parade floats and flamboyantly-dressed samba dancers color the streets with their elaborate costumes.It takes a little over a day to fly out from Manila, but the sensory overload and explosion of colors alone make the trip to the other side of the world worthwhile.

What to pack: The flag’s yellow gold and green will make you fit right in.

MoroccoThis North African country has a color palette that’s surreal and otherworldly. Their architecture, detailed mosaics, embroidery, and intricate prints all have a distinct Moroccan signature that seem to make up the DNA of their rich and colorful culture. The folks over at Culture Trip won us over when they wrote “Morocco overflows with beauty, from the dramatic Atlas Mountains stretching throughout the country, to the sparkling azure sea contrasting with the yellows and golds of the desert sands.” Sounds magical.

What to pack: Channel Moroccan vibes with loose-fitting garments that come in geometric patterns.

Seemingly infinite turquoise waters. White-sand beaches. Colorful marine life. If a refreshed outlook on your personal style is what you need, The Maldives’ paradise-like setting might help clear your mind. With 26 ring-shaped coral reefs, and over 1,000 islands, this little piece of heaven in the middle of the Indian Ocean inspires you to live life at a slow, relaxed pace, and really soak in the good life.

What to pack: Aside from your trusty swimwear, of course, a comfortable romper with all the colors of the island, and the sun setting on stilt hotels; perfect for lounging.
