So what do you know. After the first one came out, more were bound to jump on the bandwagon and dish out their 2013 lists.
And the latest comes from Lonely Planet. Not only have they come up with a top 10 for cities, they have also put together a top 10 for countries and a top 10 for regions to visit in 2013.
Now, you would think that the top 10 cities would mean the top 10 countries and similarly the top 10 regions lists wouldn’t need to exist right? Say, number 1 city is San Francisco, thus number 1 country would be California (technically a state) and number 1 region would be San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland. But NO. Instead, Lonely Planet is making it hard for mere mortals, like you and I, and giving us too many options! Choices that require us to think long and hard about how much annual leave I have saved up and how long to spend in each city/country/region. Ugh.
Without further ado, I present to you…
Best in Travel 2013 – Top 10 cities.
Ones on my radar are San Francisco (#1) and Montreal (#8).
Best in Travel 2013 – Top 10 countries.
Ones on my radar are South Korea (#3) and Madagascar (#10).
Best in Travel 2013 – Top 10 regions.
One on my radar is The Gulf Coast, USA (#6). Mainly because of Louisiana. @denisediscovers, look into Palawan (#8) for your Phillippines trip.
