7 Amazing Places To Travel — And See Pink!

The world of fashion has been in love with the colour pink for some time (and so have I)! Top of the wishlist: This leather pouch, so pretty right?! Alexa Chung gets it. Stepping away from products and onto places, here are a few amazing places around the world to travel and see pink! One of them is in my backyard (Australia)… Whatttt!

Travel: Takinoue Park Japan
Takinoue Town, Japan

The pink moss-like cherry blossoms, also known as Shibazakura paint the hillside overlooking Takinoue town. The best time to visit is between May and June when the flowers are in full bloom.


Travel: Lake Hillier Australia
Lake Hillier, Australia

Lake Hillier is a pink-colored lake on Middle Island, the largest of the islands and islets that make up the Recherche Archipelago, Western Australia. It’s about 600 metres long and is surrounded by a rim of sand and eucalyptus trees. It’s still a mystery as to why the lake is pink but scientists speculate that it comes from a dye created by bacteria that lives in the salt crusts. Bacteria, doesn’t sound so safe right? But surprisingly it is! It’s totally fine for us humans to take a dip.


Travel: Marrakech, Morocco  Marrakech, Morocco

Painted in an enchanting salmon pink, Marrakech is fondly referred to as the ‘Rose City’ or ‘Red City’ by thousands of cultural pilgrims. The jewel of Morocco, or ‘Al Hamra’ in local parlance, tantalizes its visitors with a mix of bohemian high culture and the rural earthiness of the villages. Sitting at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains in Morocco, and filled with an abundance of the colour pink also is ‘The Valley of Roses’, about six hours drive south-east of Marrakech.

La Muralla Roja, Spain

A pink apartment? Yes please! Translating to ‘The Red Wall‘ in Spanish; La Muralla Roja is a residential masterpiece by architect Ricardo Bofill in Calpe, a coastal town in Spain. Built in 1973, the structure is heavily influenced by the North African tradition of the casbah, a fort with high walls and few windows. The winding layout of 50 apartments is said to be based on the geometry of the Greek cross.


Travel: Lake Retba Senegal  Lake Retba, Senegal

In north-west Africa you’ll find this strawberry milkshake-like lake, or Lac Rose as it’s known by the locals since the language spoken there is French. It’s high salt concentration allows people to float easily and plenty of workers collect the salt daily to mainly be used to preserve fish. Its colour is most visible during dry season (November-June) and less during rainy season (July-October).


Travel: Osaka, Japan


Osaka, Japan

Springtime in Japan looks like a pastel coloured dream with over 5000 cherry trees in full bloom. Hanami, the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers, celebrate the beauty of the cherry blossom and is best viewed around early April.


Travel: Santorini, Greece

Santorini, Greece

White-washed houses and blue domes on cliff tops fill your mind when you think of Santorini but escape to Oia and stay at the most delicious bubble-gum pink bioclimatic cave house villa. It’s built into the volcanic rock of Santorini, overlooking the Caldera, and has been beautifully decorated by its owner, Maria, a Greek sculptor and painter.
