Becoming a buzz word for travelers since 2015, "Zika" -- the epidemic dominating most of the world's tropical regions today -- is something travelers consider about their destinations before finalizing their travel plans. Zika-infected mosquitoes could only introduce minor flu, but it can spread quickly to pregnant women, where it deals the most damage.
Malta normally has a warm tropical temperature, a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. But so far, no reports about Zika outbreaks or anyone infected with the virus. According to Business Insider, there are no reports of Zika in the Mediterranean region just yet.
Australia is probably the hottest country in the world when it comes to summer, making its beaches pristine and makes Australians immense surf-lovers.
