Best Places to Travel in 2018
There is a good chance that you’ve probably had enough of winter at this point. Unfortunately, with still a couple of months to go until we can all enjoy a reprieve from the punishing and unforgiving cold, the days spent in the warm embrace of sunshine are nothing more than whimsical ideas. But that doesn’t mean we can’t dream, right?
Here are some of the places that are hailed as the best places to travel in 2018 and where we’d all rather be right now:
Croatia has been experiencing a Renaissance of sorts, thanks to the popularity of Game of Thrones—most particularly the coastal city of Dubrovnik where the show’s King’s Landing scenes were predominantly shot. Neighboring resort towns like Split, Hvar, and Brač have also flourished under the influx of tourists as a result of which, widespread development can be observed.
Despite this popularity, however, traveling between islands in this developing country on the Adriatic Sea still leaves much to be desired with only sluggish public ferries and expensive private yachts as options. However, that will soon change as UberBOAT has just launched on-demand and ride-sharing options along the Dalmatian Coast, making it a lot easier to visit the rest of Croatia’s 1,200 pristine islet, including Šolta, with its idyllic medieval villages set on crystal-clear bays.
There is no dearth of paradise-like islands on the Caribbean—that is a fact. Everyone has heard of Mustique, Haiti, Montserrat, to name just a few. However, there is one island that has, thus far, flown under the radar while tourists favored its more popular neighbors, and that is the island of Grenada.
Also known as the Spice Island, Grenada has everything a traveler could ever hope for, from lush rainforests to pristine beaches, as well as a lively local scene and delicious cuisine. Largely spared from last year’s brutal hurricane, Grenada’s development has remained uninterrupted, making it very well poised to bring in more travelers this year.
Los Cabos, Mexico
Mexico is another country that is not at all a stranger to tourism, playing host to millions of visitors each year, who normally head out to popular destinations like Cancún, Playa del Carmen, and Cozumel. However, this year, the spotlight is on the colonial towns of San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas right at the very tip of the Baja peninsula. Its flourishing hotel and nightclub scene are becoming just as popular as its gorgeous beaches. And with widespread development throughout the area, the towns are ever ready to welcome the expected influx of visitors.
Since the 1960’s, people have been running off to and falling in love with this vibrant Moroccan city, including notables like Mick Jagger and Yves Saint Laurent—so much so, in fact, that the latter even bought and restored a building here in the 1980’s, which has since become the YSL Museum. The city is particularly attractive to lovers of art, and this relationship can only be more strengthened this year as the city plunges into reinvigorating its art scene with landmark events in the art and design world. Indeed, the warm, vibrant locale of Marrakesh overshadows the gloom of winter any day.
It is high time that people look beyond Sydney and Melbourne and start paying attention to the Australian gem that is Perth. This year, it is finally enjoying better connections as Qantas now flies to the city direct from Europe, giving visitors easier access to its scores of offerings. After all, there is no dearth of natural adventures that can be enjoyed in Perth, thanks to its beautiful beaches and lush landscape. It also has a thriving restaurant and night market scene, which is particularly attractive to millennials.
Alentejo Coast, Portugal
Most visitors to Portugal may flock to the more popular Algarve Coast. However, the quieter Alentejo Coast may actually be more ideal. Not only is it nestled within the breathtaking cliffs of Porto Covo and Sines, it is also a burgeoning surf spot, boasting clear waves and warm waters that are easy to ride and quite unusual for the Atlantic. Best of all, the beaches are considerably more empty and largely frequented by locals, but likely not for long.
We hope you have your passports ready!
