Exclusive: Saudi Traveller Norah Al-Yousef’s Most Favourite Destination Peru

Peru is home to the most fascinating historical location, Machu Picchu, which was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.

When roaming around in cities like Cusco, expect to see locals, dressed in brightly coloured Andean textiles like a chullo and lliclla, with their pet alpacas. Peruvian food offers diverse flavours, with influences from Spanish, Asian, Incan and other European cuisines, so you know it’ll pack a punch. PS: Don’t miss the signature ceviche and lomo saltado.
