The new Heineken Dropped campaign, which we’ve mentioned before, includes a game called “travel roulette.” People who play can earn a free international vacation. But there is a huge catch: they have to agree to drop everything and immediately travel to whatever city is randomly selected for them by the travel roulette board. Sound like a fun idea, right? But what if you were actually confronted with the possibility of playing travel roulette? Recently, Heineken chose several people to give it a try. You can watch the video to see who chose to play the game and where they ended up going.

Reykjavik

Iceland is a very unique country. The capital city of Reykjavik is at once small, charming, cosmopolitan, and exciting. A lively concert scene and plenty of art galleries mean that there is no shortage of excitement, even during the wintertime (which does not get as cold as the country’s name might suggest). Reykjavik’s Old Town and the surrounding ruggedly beautiful coastline both provide ideal sightseeing destinations. The city is also filled with thermal springs, so you can soak in mineral rich, comfortably warm waters at any time of year.

Marrakech

Morocco is one of Northern Africa’s most attractive tourist destinations. Like other places in this country, the city of Marrakech is defined by a mixture of old and new. The old town area, called the Medina, offers a glimpse into the timeless atmosphere of Morocco. Winding streets and crowded market areas (where you can buy anything that you could ever imagine) make this the perfect place for wandering for an entire day (or for an entire weekend). In the evening, the main square of this historic part of Marrakech is filled with performers, from jugglers and magicians to singers and dancers. You can buy a souvenir, fill yourself with local snacks, and even have your fortune told. In the newer parts of the city, you can enjoy shopping in modern malls, eating at upscale restaurants, and visiting some of Africa’s best nightclubs.

Seoul

Seoul is a mega-city. A hub of culture, business and tourism, it is one of East Asia’s most popular urban destinations. If you are looking for a city with a diverse list of attractions, look no further than Seoul. Shrines and palaces dating back hundreds of years are scattered all around the city, while modern skyscrapers and buzzing shopping streets are also part of the mix. You can even climb a mountain or try your luck at a casino.  Beautiful parks and unique attractions (including a bridge that doubles as a fountain) are also on the agenda for Seoul visitors.

Panama City

Panama City is one of Central America’s most cosmopolitan metropolises. A cultural melting pot with influences from all over the world, it boasts a second-to-none party scene, an exciting culinary culture and innumerable places to shop. In fact, many people consider Panama one of the best places to shop in the Americas. There is also plenty of history here. During your time here, you can visit the famous Panama Canal and Casco Viejo, the historic district of Panama City. There is also the ruins of Panama Viejo (Old Panama), the first settlement in the country and one of the first colonial outposts in all of Central America.

Bucharest

Romania’s historic capital city is one of the largest metropolises in Southeastern Europe. It offers great value for budget-minded travelers. The city’s past is celebrated at its many museums and in the historic old quarter, one of the few historic neighborhoods in the city that survived the communist era. Shopping, food and a really lively nightclub scene make this one of the best cities in Eastern Europe for people looking for some urban excitement.
