Don’t worry,no spoilers from ‘the battle of the bastard’. We have something else in store for you.

As you all know that vacation season is coming to an end, but don’t feel low. Tis’ the time to set holiday goals for the upcoming vacations. Well, we aren’t talking about any random vacation place. Brace yourself people because we are taking you to “Game of thrones” kingdoms (quite literally).

Here are a few places where you must go if you eat, sleep and breath Game of thrones. These places are rustic, raw and close to nature. It is indeed a roller coaster ride in the ‘Battle of Bastards’

Nothern Ireland

The place which has been an iconic presence in the mind blowing Game of thrones is Northern Ireland. Be it beech tree lined road AKA the Kings Road and Dark hedges or the legendary Strangford Castle AKA winterfell. Northern Ireland is ‘the place’ for GOT fanatics.

Malta (Ooo my my!)

Calm down! We know that Italy is already on your wish list but let us tell you that it has been used to shoot some of the most important instances in GOT. The beautiful limestone Azure window in Gozo, Malta is the place where Khal Drogo and Daenery’s got married.

Croatia

Well yes, it is unusual and hell yeah, this is the place for Kings Landing AKA Dubrovnik. Not only that a few meters away from Dubrovnik there is a lush Island called Lokrum AKA The Qarth. So now if you don’t add Croatia in your itinerary, House of the undying is what you miss! And , you definitely can’t afford to miss that
