Angelina Jolie must be one of the most well-traveled ladies in the world. She is often photographed in different locations, whether it be for her humanitarian work or her acting career, or simply for a holiday with the children.
Her adopted children come from different countries from their siblings and Angelina makes sure they have a chance to connect with their native lands and to introduce the family to their countries of birth. She likes to involve all her six children in her work and her charity commitments, meaning that they are as well-traveled as their mom.
While Angelina traveled extensively when she was married to Brad Pitt, it is since her divorce that this high-profile mom has focused more on her work as she helps her family to heal from the upheaval of separation and divorce.
Whether she is traveling in a private jet or piloting a plane herself, Angelina is definitely of the mindset that travel broadens the mind. She escapes to other countries for many reasons, including research for new films, suggests The Travel. She works tirelessly for her charities, visiting refugee camps that might put many celebrities off. She enriches the lives of her children by exposing them to different cultures and ensures that there is always plenty of time for fun, be it water sports, cinema trips or a spa visit for herself.
25 The Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica
Off the Northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the Nicoya Peninsula is the perfect place for Angelina to recharge her batteries. It is home to deserted beaches, the quiet of nature and, if she wishes, a golf course!

24 Skiing in Crested Butte, Colorado

For sheer natural beauty, this area of Thailand is the perfect location. Angelina has the choice of anywhere in the world to experience that aspect of a vacation but picks Amanpuri for something more.

It offers every luxury imaginable and Angelina can surely relax and pamper herself in between her hectic work schedule.
21 Caneel Bay, St John, the Virgin Islands
There are many aspects of Caneel Bay that appeal to Angelina, one of which is that it is an eco-friendly resort that claims to conserve the natural environment around St. John. Each room at the hotel includes natural stone and wood carvings from the local materials reveals Caneel Bay.com.
It sits within the Natural Park of the Virgin Islands, which was the brainchild of Laurance Rockefeller, and his influence has ensured that the project is still devoted to conserving local resources to this day.
The privacy of Seychelles makes it a popular haunt with celebrities and Angelina is no exception. She prefers the isolation of the north island where she can be assured of a holiday with no intrusions reports The Guardian.

10 Sukantara Spa, Thailand
Angelina evidently loves a spa and the relaxation and balance that it offers, and in Thailand, her spa of choice is the Sukantara. One of the bonuses of this modest, but pricey resort is the location. It is hidden in the midst of the Chiang Mai hills, so paparazzi are unlikely to be a problem.
According to Travel Happy, Angelina is a big fan of Thailand and chose to get some of her tattoos inked in the South East Asian country.
Namibia is a place that is close to Angelina’s heart as she gave birth to her eldest natural child, Shiloh here. Hollywood Life also reveals that she opened a wildlife sanctuary in the country with her daughter, which was named in Shiloh’s honor.

Another place that Angelina holds dear is Cambodia, from where she adopted her son Maddox reports Forbes. The beautiful country is also popular for vacations and the actress has taken full advantage of this fact.

4 Toronto, Canada
