With travel restrictions easing around the globe, National Geographic has revealed its picks for the world's top five travel destinations for 2022. The list is divided into five categories: adventure, food, culture, and history. Here's a look at each destination and what you can expect in each place. In case you're planning a vacation in the next few years, be sure to check out the recommendations.
If you love nature and water-centric activities, then you should consider visiting the Cook Islands, a group of 15 islands in the South Pacific. If you're a history buff, you can visit Winston Churchill's war room, which is an impressive display of the country's past. If you're a shopaholic, then you should consider exploring the Maori population and enjoying the scenery.
For a cheaper trip, India may be a good choice. Due to its favorable exchange rate, the country is relatively affordable. Alternatively, if you'd prefer a more laid-back experience, try a cruise in the Andes. While these aren't the most glamorous destinations, they are certainly worth a look. If you're looking for a more local experience, you might want to consider the Yucatan Peninsula, which is much less crowded than Cancun and has plenty of opportunities for snorkeling.
If you're planning a vacation to the Dominican Republic, consider visiting the Caribbean, where crystal-clear waters are ideal for diving. And if you're a nature lover, consider scouting for whales and snorkeling with sea lions. The Dominican Republic is the perfect destination for families and couples. There are also a number of restaurants and bars in the city, such as the Connaught bar in Mayfair.
The first and second place on the list is New Mexico. This small town was founded in the 17th century and is an artistic haven. Despite its small size, Sante Fe is one of the most beautiful places in the world. In addition, it is a popular tourist destination with its thriving art scene. This year's travel trends will continue to influence the way people live and visit in the future.
The Cook Islands is an isolated group of 15 islands in the South Pacific. Its culture is traditional and modern, while its landscapes are stunning. The country's top attractions are its historic castles and lush, scenic landscapes. Lonely Planet recommends seven restaurants and seven hotels in the country. Lastly, Slovenia is one of the best places to visit in Europe. A number of travel writers have praised the food and the culture of the Cook Islands.
Besides the world's top five, the country has been plagued by the deadly COVID virus, a disease that killed millions of people. In July, Thailand's government reopened its airport to tourists fully vaccinated against the disease. In the fall of 2017, the country also reopened to tourists. Phuket is a popular vacation destination with good accommodations and discounts. In addition to its beaches, the country is known for its cuisine, ambiance, and gastronomy.
Despite the fact that the world's population continues to grow, a few countries remain underdeveloped and largely undeveloped. Many of these countries have a diverse geography, with many mountains and rivers. If you are looking for an exotic travel destination, Vietnam is an excellent choice. With a few hours of flying, the country is well-served with tourists from all over the world. The country is home to a wide variety of landscapes, including a number of national parks and ancient ruins.
The country is a popular destination for families and couples. Its beaches are beautiful and ideal for a romantic vacation.
