“There are so many cultural and historical experiences beyond the normal resort vacation that travelers need to see for themselves. You could spend 10 years exploring Mexico and not even scratch the surface of what it has to offer. For anyone thinking Mexico is just all-inclusives, I beg you to look closer.”
“Albania truly has all the best of what Europe has to offer for a fraction of the price and with a much safer and more welcoming environment. It’s a wonderful gem, mostly unknown to westerners, and one that deserves to be top of your 2023 destination list.”
“Turkey is a sensational country filled with Bucket List experiences. Everything from bustling cities to quiet seaside towns awaits, with amazing food, language, and weather. If you want the seaside, try Izmikr, Kas, and Bodrum. For cities, you can’t go wrong with Istanbul and Ankara.”
Trevor Kucheran, Director
“Mexico is the final word vacation spot. It has the landscapes of the complete world, all situated in only one nation. Mountains, deserts, rivers, jungles, and oceans. One day you possibly can be browsing in Puerto Escondido; the subsequent day, you possibly can be in a comfortable snow-covered cabin in Durango.
As far as Tourism is anxious, Mexico is the king. With unbelievable beachfront cities like Cancun and Cabo, guests won’t ever be upset with their holidays.
For digital nomads and gradual vacationers, Mexico has dozens of charming and reasonably priced cities and cities with an unbelievable high quality of life brimming with tradition. For the final decade, it’s at all times been my primary alternative, and I really feel like my love for Mexico is simply starting.”
Tyler Fox, Managing Editor
Having the liberty to work from anyplace comes with severe benefits… and temptations. Temptations like packing all of it up and transferring to a different nation! My prime locations for 2023 are all areas I wish to discover extra to see if I wish to stay there long-term.
“Istanbul has always seemed like a fascinating destination, and I can’t wait to see it for myself. One of my favorite things to do while traveling is explore the historical attractions in the area, and Istanbul is filled to the brim with them. The Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, and the Basilica Cistern are all musts during my trip.”
“Tirana is a place I would love to check out. Albania’s digital nomad visa is definitely something that I’ve considered, and I’m very curious to see what life would be like in the capital city. Also, Tirana seems like an excellent place to call home base, especially because Americans can stay for up to a year without a visa.”
“Whenever we write about Mexico, I need to e book the subsequent flight out! I’ve been earlier than, however there may be a lot extra to the nation than a resort keep within the Riviera Maya. Cancun, Tulum, Bacalar, Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Los Cabos, La Paz… Mexico has so many locations, and I need to see all of them!
The folks I’ve met at conferences who’re from Mexico have been a number of the nicest folks there, and they’re one other massive motive for me eager to see extra of the nation.”

“Serving as capital to one of Europe’s less visited and most mysterious countries, Sofia is Bulgaria’s financial and cultural center, where communist-era monuments and far more ancient Romanesque ruins are constantly battling for dominance in an incongruent, yet beautiful cityscape. It is also one of the continent’s oldest cities, making it an ideal destination for Historophiles.”
São Paulo, Brazil
“A largely overlooked metropolitan behemoth, Latin America’s largest city may not be necessarily famous for its collection of historic landmarks, which is understandably limited, but it truly shines as a foodie destination and a diverse, multicultural hub. Here, you will see Japanese, Jew, Arab, Lithuanian, Polish and Italian neighborhoods clumped together, still retaining their ethnic character and cuisine – just to name a few – and perhaps Brazil’s most vibrant nightlife and social scene.”
Istanbul, Turkey / Turkiye
“One of the most mystical cities on the planet, Istanbul’s greatness knows no borders: it has districts in Europe and Asia, with the former’s imperial Balkan charm often overlapping with the latter’s Anatolian-oriental flair. As Philip Mansel puts it, it is the “city of the world’s desire” with views to be admired for days.”
Andrea Miliani – Travel Writer
“Call me a romantic, but Italy has that unique, flirty charm that you won’t find in another country. I am especially interested in off-the-beaten-path destinations I haven’t visited before, like Cinque Terre and Elba Island—where my ancestors are from. That mix of fascinating historical architecture, delicious gastronomy, and stunning landscapes that you find in Italy make it a wonderful travel experience for anyone.”
“I’m so curious about Albania! This destination became very popular this year, and the videos and photos are truly impressive. The beaches have spectacular turquoise waters, the Albanian Alps seem to have amazing trails, and the museums look very interesting. I want to visit while it’s still affordable and before it gets too popular.”

Yellowstone National Park
“Yellowstone is one of my absolute favorite places in the world – with the rainbows, bubbling hot springs, herds of bison roaming free, and seemingly endless expanses of wilderness, it’s always felt magical to me. There are also so many things to do and see there (and in the border communities, like catching a movie at the IMAX theatre over in West Yellowstone!), I feel like it never gets old.”
Megan Gibbons – Travel Writer
“Over the previous 12 months, I’ve volunteered with a bunch that helps asylum seekers and refugees in my neighborhood. Through this work, I’ve gotten to know so many form, courageous, and resilient households from all around the world and have been uncovered to cultures I didn’t know a lot about earlier than. So my best choice of locations I’d like to go to in 2023 is impressed by an incredible group of girls who’ve proven me the fantastic thing about their tradition – the nation of Georgia. Georgia is my prime decide for 3 particular causes: the folks, the land, and the meals (my favourite motive for journey).
The Georgian households I’ve come to know are so form and hospitable that I’d think about touring to their nation could be a really welcoming expertise. When we discuss Georgia, all of them gentle up and excitedly clarify how lovely of a rustic it’s, and the images I’ve seen are beautiful. And lastly, after a couple of very particular home-cooked Georgian meals, I’ve come to the conclusion that Georgian meals ought to be as well-liked and well-known as Italian meals. It is totally scrumptious and actually distinctive. I sit up for consuming my manner via Georgia in 2023.”

“With waves from a surfer’s dream, epic volcanoes to climb, and a fascinating history to absorb, this country often gets overlooked compared to the larger countries in Central America (which means fewer tourist crowds). Every person I’ve spoken to has only sung this country’s praises, so I can’t wait to see what everyone is talking about in 2023.”
Dale Peterson – Travel Writer
“Nicaragua is a diverse country with many adventurous things to do. Great beaches for surfing, outdoor activities like volcano hikes and volcano boarding, and exploring colonial cities like León and Granada are reasons I’m hoping to visit Nicaragua in 2023.”
