With the new year, comes new and exciting places to visit. Wether it was due to lack of time or you simply weren’t sure about some destinations; 2019 is the year to travel.
Here are the top 5 places to visit in 2019:
1. Mexico City, Mexico
WHY: Experience colourful flavours and culture
Lets face it, everyone loves Mexican food; and who wouldn’t want to have a traditional homemade taco? Although in the past it may have had a criminal reputation, it is definitely an up and coming city, filled with cultural history, homemade food as well as lively parties. What else could you possibly ask for!
2. Dordogne, France
WHY: A fairytale dream
This pastoral Southwestern region lies within the richness of the cherished french culture we all admire. 2019 is an especially appropriate time to visit as it makes 100 years since the inauguration of the Félibrée; an annual celebration of all things Occitan. This includes food, music as well as activities such as renting kayaks on the Dordogne River.
WHY: Breathtaking scenery and heritage
This Southern European country should be on everyone’s travel list for 2019. For years, this beautiful country filled with undiscovered beaches used to be considered a mere stopover that travellers combined with its popular neighbouring country Croatia. However, this underrated paradise has recently experienced development boom with its pink sand beaches, shopping spots as well as spas.
4. Reykjavik, Iceland
WHY: A place to reach your inner Zen
From natural springs and waterfalls to whale-watching, Iceland is surreal experience waiting to inspire you. One of the main reasons to visit is the night-time spectacle of the Northern Lights, which are more common in Iceland than any other Northern country. The perfect destination for a full body detox.
5. The Azores, Portugal
WHY: Natural adventure zone
Although Portugal has been a major touristic attraction, new to the scene are beautiful islands of The Azores. Filled with thermal springs, vineyards, volcanic lakes, these spots are all accompanied by outdoor activities such as surfing, diving and kayaking. These amazing islands have something for everyone.
Wishing you a year of spectacular travels.
