The Best Destinations for 2018 Announced

News Lonely Planet has published its version of the rating featuring the hottest travel destinations of the world in 2018. According to the travel guide, these destinations should appear in wish lists of many travellers next year. The rating is split into several categories, including top ten cities, countries, and regions.

Chile occupies the honorable #1 spot in the 2018 best country for travel rating. Hotels in Seville might enjoy higher bookings next year as this city won the first place in the best city list. By the way, Chile is the only South American country that is present in the list. The top countries list has some comebacks, such as the city of Detroit and Canberra, the capital of Australia that is, however, often overlooked by tourists. Lonely Planet also has a list of regions to explore in 2018, and Belfast with the Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland is the top destination there. There are some unexpected regions in the list, such as Alaska and Julian Alps in Slovenia.

When it comes to Best Value destinations, Tallinn (Estonia) is the leader of the rating. Lanzarote (the Canary Islands) and Arizona (the USA) make up the top three. By the way, this rating is more important than it may seem at a glance. For example, Chile’s authorities have already expressed their satisfaction with the news. The leading position might be the result of an extensive tourism program by the country’s government. Chile tries to reimagine itself as a must-visit international destination. Such a dedication has already brought its first results – more than 5.5 million foreign tourists arrived in the country last year.

Here are the complete rankings. The best top 10 countries to travel in 2018: Chile, South Korea, Portugal, Djibouti, New Zealand, Malta, Georgia, Mauritius, China, and South Africa. The list of the top 10 regions best for traveling in 2018 is the following: Belfast and the Causeway Coast (Northern Ireland), Alaska (USA), Julian Alps (Slovenia), Languedoc-Roussillon (France), Kii Peninsula (Japan), Aeolian Islands (Italy), Southern USA, Lahaul and Spiti (India), Bahia (Brazil), and Los Haitises National Park (Dominican Republic).

The top 10 best value destinations in 2018 rating: Tallinn (Estonia), Lanzarote (Canary Islands), Arizona (USA), La Paz (Bolivia), Poland, Essaouira (Morocco), United Kingdom, Baja California (Mexico), Jacksonville (USA), and Hunan (China). Finally, the top 10 cities to visit in 2018: Seville (Spain), Detroit (USA), Canberra (Australia), Hamburg (Germany), Kaohsiung (Taiwan), Antwerp (Belgium), Malera (Italy), San Juan (Puerto Rico), Guanajuato (Mexico), and Oslo (Norway).
