Thinking of visiting a new destination in 2018?  The world has so much to offer and is full of beautiful places that are waiting to be explored.

Here are the top recommended destinations for 2018:

Sanya, China

Savvy globetrotters may already have this destination on their radar.

Sanya is located in Hainan Island, China, and is quickly becoming a top choice for luxury travelers because it is just a short flight away from Hong Kong.  What was once a destination for domestic travelers has now become an attraction of choice for visitors from beyond its own shores, due to its renown as a luxury beach resort. This has in turn fueled the development of new resorts and hotels to cater to the ever- increasing demand.

Expect to be charmed with breath-taking coastlines, luxury hotels, and an abundance of shopping opportunities at Sanya.

New Orleans, USA

New Orleans is celebrating its 300th birthday in 2018.  However, thanks to its boundless energy and colorful demeanor, it does not look a day over two hundred years old. To celebrate this important milestone, expect lots of food and revelry in the city.

In addition, the local music scene in New Orleans is one which is booming, so be sure to experience it when you are there.

Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo looks like it is straight out of a film with its unique mix of architecture and neon-lit skyscrapers. In spite of its modern outlook, you can find traditional and cultural buildings within the confines of this bustling city.  Visit Tokyo Skytree, which is the tallest tower in the world to get a bird’s eye view of one of the busiest city in the world.

Foodies will love it in Tokyo.  The city has one of the highest number of Michelin-rated restaurants in the world.  Perhaps even a simple meal of ramen at a subway can rival any others in a restaurant outside of Tokyo.

Those who are looking to spend top dollar can consider experiencing the freshest sushi and the best wagyu beef at a number of top-rated restaurants in Tokyo.

Merida, Mexico

This colonial city has broad central plazas and an impressive art scene. While in Merida, do not limit yourself to the city’s boundaries. Take the opportunity to embark on excursions to some attractions beyond the city, many of which are UNESCO-listed archeological sites.

If you love to swim, you can head to the city’s sinkholes, which were considered to be sacred wells in the past. You can also find other sinkholes in Reserve de la Biosfera Ria Celestun, which is a reserve with many mangroves forests for wild animals, including a large flamingo colony.

Dallas, Texas

Dallas is the most mythical city in Texas and is famous for its contributions towards pop culture.  In addition, with its unique and excellent museums, history buffs will not run out of things to do in Dallas.

The Arts District, which is a large 68-acre attraction, is one of the most notable additions in the cultural landscape. Those who are looking for the quintessential Dallas experience can choose a neighborhood such as the Lower Greenville, and chill out on a patio with a cold beer.

Texas is also famous for its wedding history – there are a lot of customs and songs describing this amazing ceremony of love. The wedding decorations here are more vintage, and the bridal costumes, simpler and chic with a touch of gypsy style.   It is the perfect place to collect ideas for your own big day!

London, England

London is a city that has something for all kinds of people: foodies, shopaholics, history buffs, and pub lovers. Those on a tight budget can consider taking advantage of the free attractions that the city has to offer, which include Tate Modern and the British Museum. You can also head to the Sky Garden, which is a three-story garden that offers magnificent views of the city.

History buffs will find themselves enchanted with the Churchill War Rooms where they can have a first-hand experience of the military planning and operations carried out by Allied forces in the underground bunkers during World War II.  Don’t forget the Tower of London, which is not only an important historical monument, but also a great place to take pictures for that travel album. For beer lovers, a trip to London would not be complete without stopping at a local pub for a drink and a football match.

Wine lovers will have plenty of choices. Head to Gordon’s Wine Bar for a history lesson at the oldest wine bar in the city.

The above places are the top recommended destinations to visit in 2018.

Consider your interest, budget and the climate before you plan that trip!
