1. Belize, Caribbean

Belize is full of rich history, rewarding explorations, and natural beauty that may not be around forever. Part Caribbean and part Central America, Belize feels untouched by the rest of the planet, making it seem like a true getaway. In today’s world, how much longer will we be able to find a destination so unplugged?

2. Taipei, Taiwan

One of Asia’s most progressive, flourishing cities strikes a balance between nature and modernity, past and future. Taipei is a city that honors tradition, as is evidenced by the temples that dot the urban landscape. 2018 will see a wide variety of events that paint a picture of the city’s forward-thinking vision, such as the 2018 Taiwan Cycling Festival, a great chance to check out Taipei’s hundreds of kilometers of riverside bike paths.

3. Buenos Aires, Argentina

Argentina’s friendly and energetic capital is an edgy blend of Latin and European cultures. With its flair for the creative, Buenos Aires has long attracted lovers of art and design. Buenos Aires was recently named as the first “Art Basel City” in the world, which has kicked off a multi-year collaboration with the Art Basel team, including a week of specially curated public arts programming in September 2018.

4. Sichuan, China

China’s remote southwest region is easier than ever to reach. Famous for its giant pandas, mountains, rivers, and mouth-numbing peppercorns, Sichuan has long lured adventurous travelers off the usual Shanghai–Beijing–Xi’an tourist trail, with its promise of natural wonders.

5. Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Awaken a sense of freedom and adventure as you climb through four seasons in one week on the rooftop of Africa. A trip to Kilimanjaro means spending a week climbing up the 11,000-year-old snow-covered peaks to gaze out across the lunar landscape and savannah plains on the highest point in Africa. As one of the world’s highest volcanoes, Mt. Kilimanjaro is considered to be the “Everyman’s Everest”.

6. Singapore, Singapore

Asia’s “Garden City” stays fresh with eco hotels and meticulously renovated heritage buildings. Singapore never stops reinventing itself. Last year, the city-state unveiled its renovated National Museum. And this year? The country welcomes the highly anticipated renovation of the famed Raffles Hotel—a 19th-century grand dame and birthplace of the iconic Singapore Sling.

7. St. Petersburg, Russia

Decadence and grandeur are alive and well in Russia’s imperial city. Founded by Peter the Great in 1703 as a means for the tsar’s growing navy to gain access via the Baltic Sea, St. Petersburg, Russia is often referred to as the Venice of the North due to the city’s intricate lacework of beautiful canals, bridges, grand boulevards, and elegant baroque and classical style plazas.

8. Quito, Ecuador

In a valley flanked by the humbling reaches of the Andes, at the foot of Volcán Pichincha, stands Quito. The Ecuadorian capital is a modern city, but it’s the history that has remained a point of fascination. Established by the invading Spanish in the mid-16th century, the historical buildings have been remarkably well-preserved. So well, in fact, that it was one of the first heritage sites ever named by UNESCO.

9. Tallinn, Estonia

Discover the pride of a rising Estonia in its adorable capital of Tallinn, where fairytale charm meets thoroughly modern savvy. Tallinn’s gorgeous and easily walkable Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dating from the 13th century when invading Danes began building what would become one of the area’s most important trade hubs.

10. Talkeetna, Alaska

Right between Anchorage and Mount Denali, you’ll find the small village of Talkeetna, a place known as both the gateway to Alaska’s most famous national park and as the town that elected a cat named Stubbs as its mayor for 20 years. This confluence of the great outdoors and silly local tales sums up the town quite nicely.
