Let’s Get Inspired With 25 Travel Blog Ideas!

#1 Mini City / Place Guide

Doing a mini guide to a place is a great idea as a blog post because the options are limitless as to what you can include.

Here are some suggestions to start you off: top 5 things in a range of categories in a particular city or place, top 5 sights, bars, restaurants, transport options, hostels, self-catering, accommodation, wi-fi spots, internet cafes, co-working spaces, shops, hotels, parks, museums, tours, selfie spots, the list is endless, also you don’t need to stick to 5. There are also other creative ways you could format this post any way you want.

World has so many teal water beaches to offer! :)

#2 Photo Blog Post / Photo Journal Post 

I’ve seen more and more of these recently; it requires as little or as much work as you want. How it works is, say you visit a place and have a stack of photos from there you could just do a post with all your photos in it and just write a few lines about each place under or next to the photo.

Some people theme their photo blog post on a particular place, for example, a temple, and write a short accompanying post. Others have even used this type of format to show their top, travel quotes, there are many options for this style of post you could implement to come up with something inspirational.

Some ideas are:

  • Photo Blog post on foods & Drinks
  • Beaches you love
  • Cities you have visited
  • Your top selfies
  • Marine life
  • Religious places
  • Travel Gadgets
  • Travel clothing and footwear
  • Camping gear

Again this list has no limit other than your imagination.

#3 Restaurant Reviews

Have you been to an interesting place to eat? Was it somewhere remote? Or even famous? Or did it just have the most mouth-watering food? How about writing a review for a place you have eaten in?

Many people look on the internet every day for restaurant recommendations, and the foodies love them. A great idea for a quick blog post, who knows it could go viral. Another format to record your experience is by Vlogging it.

Wander around and learn about different cultures and traditions.

#4 Free Things To Do 

Many places have free things you can find to do, I just came back from Bali and wrote a post on my Bali experience.

Free guides are also useful for everyone, so this topic always does well in getting traffic to your site.

You could categorise it if you choose to or keep it general.

Some ideas are:

  • Free things to do with kids in …
  • Free things to do in …
  • Free Museums …
  • Free WiFi spots in …
  • Free walking tours in …
  • Top free nature trails …
  • Top free art galleries…
  • Top Free festivals …

Temples are the ultimate expression of art.

#5 Travel Hacks

Have you got any good travel tips and hacks?, such as getting free stays at a place, using air miles, how to book cheap flights, where to get discounts from, airports layovers that offer free city tours, etc…. everyone loves travel hacks and tips and they are very well read by bloggers and travellers.

#6 Travel Apps

Another idea, and type of post I love reading about travel apps, there are so many on the market, and I love seeing blogs about them, so I can go and download it and try it out.

Everyone uses smartphones, and tablets these days, and writing such a post would be useful for travellers. You could even write a post on reviewing different apps.

Marina Bay in Singapore is simply amazing place to be!

#7 Hotel / Hostel / Home Stay or Another Type of Accommodation Review

Another one of my favourites, most people including my self-checkout reviews and photos of places before they book.

How about creating posts reviews various types of accommodation you have stayed in, and if you can do a video or some drone footage to accompany it even better.

Statues and temples talk so much about history of the place.

#8 Cost of Things (In a Certain Place or Country)

When planning trips, it is always helpful if you are on a budget or are spending a long period in a certain place or country, to know the cost of things such a transportation, food, drinks, tours, accommodation, activities, etc .. Writing or Vlogging, this type of information, is a useful resource.

Architecture of cities can be inspiring!

#9 Nightlife 

If you have been to a place or live in a place with a nightlife scene, write some posts on what there is to do, these posts make good reading for night owls and party animals, raver’s, clubbers and people looking for places to go at night.

Adding photos and videos are also good for this type of post. Focus on things like the description of the place, location, transport options to get there, food, drink, music played, performances and entrance costs.

#10 Walking Guide

Blog posts, videos and photos on places you can walk around are great for people wanting to explore areas on foot. You can attach the route from google maps.

It will be good to detail places to stop and have food/drinks on route and interesting places to see and things you can do on the route.

Endless rice fields.

#11 Cycling Guide

Many cities and places have bicycles you can rent to explore. A great idea for a blog post would be to show where in various places or a particular place you can rent bikes and any good bike routes people can do, adding the price of rentals and contact details of where you can rent from etc would give your post a bonus.

Basically with information type posts try to provide as much as you can, to assist the reader.

#12 Visa Requirements of a Certain Place

Visas and immigration rules are very important to know when travelling, a well-researched post and personal experience of obtaining a visa or how to fill out forms, and costs prove very useful content.

Stunning landscape.

#13 Volunteering Opportunities or Experiences 

Have you or some you know done volunteering or similar experience? If so why not interview them for your blog.

Interviews have proved very popular on my site where I have a featured bloggers section. (if you would like to be featured, please drop me an email on [email protected]

Check Out Some Featured Interview’s Here: Featured Bloggers 

Rock in the middle of the sea.

#14 Whats in Your Bag?

I find it always interesting to know what others carry with them, from blogging equipment like cameras, drones, travel accessories, etc … it is very useful to see, I have found some great things to buy to make travelling life easier by reading these types of post.

So a post or video on what you carry or what equipment you carry can be helpful for readers and fellow travellers.  

#15 Backpacking Tips

If you have been backpacking to places or you know any backpackers why not feature or write about it. Every year students taking a gap year and travellers go backpacking and rely on posts to guide and give them information.

Your content could include any aspects of backpacking from hostels and accommodations, to money-saving tips, cheapest destinations and many more.

Travel packing tips sounds like an attractive topic!

#16 Travelling With Children 

Many families are very interested in finding out about places prior booking, to see what there is to do with children and how child-friendly places are. That is another topic you could very creative with whilst focusing on travelling and children.

Things like, hotels or accommodations that offer free stays for children, activities to do with children and tours, theme parks, zoo’s, kids clubs, and restaurants, etc … If you don’t have children and don’t know about this you can easily research online and ask people who have children to help you out the post together, also maybe feature a family blogger or traveler on your site. 

Where to go next?

#17 Health & Travel 

Health and Travel literally cover hundreds of blogging and writing opportunities, below is a small list of ideas you can use. 

  • Travel health advise before visiting (…….) 
  • Yoga retreats to try 
  • What travel insurance to get

#18 Eco Travel + Responsible Tourism 

There have been so many developments in the field of eco-travel and responsible travel. It is an area, I am planning to write more about.

Some ideas are:

  • Best destinations for eco-travel

#19 Solo Traveling Tips

Are you a solo traveler or have you done solo travel before? Are there any people you know that solo travel? A lot of people solo travel or want to start solo traveling, and I’m sure any insights you can write about will be of great use. 

#20 Romantic Destinations

A great topic to research or write about first-hand experiences, these posts are very well read by couples looking for romantic destinations,  honeymooners and people wanting to have a wedding abroad. 

The types of posts can vary from top places to get married, secluded romantic destinations, cheap romantic destinations, most expensive romantic destinations, the cost of booking a romantic trip, romantic cities, romantic things to do in a certain place…. the list can go on forever

Explore stunning beaches around the coast.

Some ideas are:

How to manage anxiety when travelling…

How to the manager with children when travelling…

How to manage your finances when travelling… 

How to manage your blog when travelling… 

How to manage your fears of travelling solo… 

How to manage your work schedule as a nomad…

#22 Top Off the Beaten Track Places

If you live in a place or have visited a place with different off the beaten track places to see and visit, document it in your blog.

Travellers and bloggers love exploring new off the tourist track places, so why not share your knowledge and experiences via your blog.

Paying respect to people who died.

#23 Beach Destinations 

Been to a place with great beaches or awful beaches it does not matter, blog it!! Share your experience with the world, that why people love reading travel blogs.. or you could even write a beach guide, on the place, complement it photos, videos, etc… 

Some ideas are: 

  • Beach that makes you want to …
  • Top Beaches to watch sunsets…
  • Beaches you will have to yourself in …
  • Great beaches for children …
  • Cleanest beaches in …
  • Top romantic beaches in …

Catching waves in the oceans around the world. 

#24 Worst Travel Experience / Trip Dramas / Holiday Nightmares

Have you or any friends/family or your readers had any awful travel nightmares? If so why not do some interviews for your sites or a blog covering this topic.

People like to know the good things about the trip but also the downsides as to what could go wrong. 

Fresh coconut is always amazing way to refresh yourself!

#25 Top Phrases / Words of a Certain Place

I always try to learn a few words or sentences of countries that I visit and check out a lot of posts online, that share such content. So have you been anywhere and learned some top phrases and words or maybe you speak other languages?

Why not add them to a blog article to help your readers when they visit different destinations, and if you have not been to a particular place you can still research this online and write about. There are many resources online to help you learn languages too. 

Free elephant in the jungle

Hope that list had helped you get some creative ideas going, you can also mix and match them up to come up with your topics. When writing try to think what type of articles, heading and topics have led to you clicking the read button on posts you have seen.

I normally bookmark all my favourite bloggers and articles I find to use as inspiration or for future reference when planning my travels.
