Finding new places to travel!

Jan 29, 2017

There are a lot of big companies, like Lonely Planet and Rough Guide that set the travel trends for when and where to travel. I love those lists but I do not always agree with them. 

Travel where you want

Just because someone says that a place is “hot”, does that mean that you need to set the course there? I saw a list of what cities were most visited during last year. It was a surprise to see that Bangkok was the number one. I was sure that London or New York would take the first place. However I do know that the Swedes love Thailand and go there every year. At the same time it is amazing how we decide where to go on what other people tell us.

According to Lonely Planet there are some new cities that will be on top this year. Here is the list that Lonely Planet has picked for this year:

1. Bordeaux, France
2. Cape Town, South Africa
3. Los Angeles, USA
4. Merida, Mexico
5. Ohrid, Macedonia
6. Pistoia, Italy
7. Seul, South Korea
8. Lisbon, Portugal
9. Moscow, Russia
10. Portland, Oregon

So Much To See

The world is such a big place and there is so much to explore. I am a person that loves lists and trends, so I get a lot of inspiration from that. But for me the best thing right now is to look at what cities become Cultural Capitals. Now it is time for Aarhus in Denmark. So on my list that would be number one place to visit this year! Cape Town in South Africa is truly amazing so I agree with Lonely Planet. Los Angeles is also amazing and it always will be! Looking at these lists makes us want to travel now! But if I could decide where to go right now it would be Madagascar!
