Traveller editors and National Geographic Explorers have selected their top places to travel to in 2019. National Geographic just put out its list of the best travel destinations for 2019.
Traveller editors and National Geographic Explorers have selected their top places to travel across four categories: Cities, Nature, Culture, and Adventure.
“Our Best Trips issue features 28 destinations and experiences that can inspire us, change our perspectives and connect us with cultures, places and ideas that matter in the world,” says George Stone, National Geographic Traveler editor in chief. “The issue is packed with spectacular National Geographic photography and is driven by our mission to explore, conserve, respect and engage with our planet.”
Here are the top ten travel destinations for 2019 as chosen by National Geographic:
1.Mexico City, Mexico
“We have low jungles, high jungles, cloud forests, flooded forests, vast swamps, waterfalls, jungle ruins, creepy isolated mountain peaks, and even the world’s largest documented thermal river—the Boiling River of the Amazon,” says Peruvian geothermal scientist and National Geographic Explorer Andrés Ruzo. “One of my favorite things here is the blending of cuisines and cultures,” Ruzo says.
“Fanjingshan, China’s newest UNESCO World Heritage site, is said to be worth the climb. A sacred Buddhist site (48 temples once stood on the mountain), Fanjingshan rewards hikers with bizarre rock formations and above-the-clouds views of China’s Wuling mountain range.”
“Picture-book castles lead to romantic fantasies in the Dordogne, but the true charm of this region in southwestern France lies in the richness of its long-cherished culture.”
6.Canterbury Region, New Zealand
7.Hoang Lien Son,Vietnam
“The world’s largest island celebrates 10 years of self-rule in 2019. While still one step short of full independence from Denmark, Greenland arguably reigns supreme when it comes to off-the-hook Arctic adventures, such as extreme heli-skiing, sea kayaking among towering icebergs, and dogsledding across the top of the world near Qaanaaq (Thule).”
“Horseback riders can explore the Hajar mountains, go deep into the twisting gorges of Wadi an Nakhur, and gallop for miles along Gulf of Oman beaches or the endless red dunes of the Rub al Khali.”
10.Kansas City, Missouri
