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.
Frommer’s’ Best Places to Go in 2016
Fodor’s Go List 2016
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?
