For a country more than ten times the size of the UK, the abundance of experiences and emotions Argentina has to offer should not come as a surprise. Still, it is impossible to anticipate the peculiar beauty of this South American destination only by reading a travel blog or seeing a documentary. Imagine vast Pampas stretching as far as the eye can see, snow carpeted mountain peaks merging with cotton candy clouds, passionate tango dancers exchanging electric glances on a cobbled street in Buenos Aires, curious tourists discussing politics with locals over a glass of wine in a bodega (winery), and many iconic, postcard-like scenes that are nowhere to be seen apart from here.

The moment you say "Argentina", you already start visualising a couple tightly embraced, dancing to the burning rhythm of the Argentinian tango. If you haven't done it before, then definitely give it a try, let the beauty of the tango get to you and live the magic of the moment. For a deeper insight into local culture, check out their charming folk music. We recommend Mercedes Sosa, a leading folk artist, whose soothing songs became "the voice of the voiceless ones". Crazy clubbers, stay calm, we got your back as well - Buenos Aires never sleeps, so neither will you, get ready to party till the sun comes up.

Olfactory sensations stay with us as beautiful representations of every place we visit. For Argentina, it might be the tempting smell of freshly baked empanadas coming from a street vendor or a bakery shop; the sweet aroma of medialuna, the Argentinian version of the flaky French croissants; sugary nuts sold at every corner; cafe con leche; cigarettes; grass or cedar trees.

Meat eaters out there, grab your forks and go, Argentina is your paradise! Just get a bite of the delicious asado, a mix of barbecued meats, and trust us, you will simply not be able to stop. Other than this, you should definitely try the empanadas, pastry filled with meat, cheese and vegetables, and their exquisite dulce de leche, a sweet, savoury dessert made up of caramelised milk. To accompany your meal, go for a good glass of red wine, such as Malbec. Take the rest of the bottle to your room and then you can call it a night.

Argentina is vibrant, pulsating with energy and a joy of life that is simply contagious. Good vibes everywhere, people dancing or smoking their cigars, making the best of what they have. Like a miracle pill, a visit here will inject a boost of energy into your system that, combined with their rich cultural heritage, will make you want to stay there for longer, even permanently.
