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:
- America’s National Parks (See List of Free Entrance Days For All U.S. National Parks in 2016)
- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- Sri Lanka
- Taipei, Taiwan
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?
