I would say that there are many on the list that are pretty much givens – cities that kind of had to be selected. However, there are some other locations on the list that piqued my interest as well.

Having only been to 15 of the 25 Top Destinations myself, I still have some more travel to do! Specifically travel in southeast Asia. There is a lot of the world to see and I always try to visit someplace new instead of a place I have been before. However, it doesn’t always work that way!

If I had to pick one destination off this list that I would like to visit this year, I would have to say it would be Prague. I have long wanted to go there and have heard from many friends about how wonderful it is. We shall see!

See the list from TripAdvisor here as well as other top destinations by region!

  • Great list, but why is Jamaica on it. Safety and petty theft are rampant. Military presence is now obvious as well. Very unnerving.

    Grand Cayman and Aruba are far better choices!

  • Nice enough list. Still missing Marrakech, Morocco; Phuket, Thailand; Kathmandu, Nepal; Hurghada, Egypt; and Cusco, Peru over here. Prague should definitely be on your to do list as there is mucha to see there.
