Every December and January, I love reading the annual travel lists compiled by various travel websites and newspapers on top travel destinations for the next year.  While I don’t particularly care if a destination is considered a must see, I love reading these lists for inspiration and discovering places I might not have considered or heard of.  Two years ago, one of the lists led us to discover and visit Chengdu, China where we were able to hold and hug a young giant panda.

Here is a round up of some of the 2016 lists that I enjoyed reading.   If you have some free time, these lists make for some enjoyable reading.

My favorite list is the one from cnn.com.  The list included places I have traveled to and loved and places I really want to visit.

Some destinations mentioned in more than one list include:

I would love to visit most places on these lists.  I have visited Cuba, Taipei and Australia in the past and agree that they are places worth traveling to in 2016.

Colombia is a country I have been eyeing lately that I can see visiting in the next couple of years.  I would also love to travel to Cuba again.

Any thoughts on these lists of places to travel to? Do you enjoy reading these lists?
