Have You Visited Any of the Top Destinations for 2016?
Question: What was the most exciting trip you took this year? Was it in a faraway under-the-radar destination still undiscovered by tourists or was it a in trendy hot spot? That's what Travel + Leisure is trying to find out and the winner will be "crowned" Destination of the Year 2016.
The magazine just announced the contenders for its third annual contest and the list is giving us some serious wanderlust. You'll find familiar places such as Paris and Washington DC that have proved for the past 12 months they are well worth another visit because of chic new hotels, restaurants, or can't-miss events. But there are also less popular destinations like Ischia, a volcanic island in the Gulf of Naples in Italy; or Korea, a country famous in the U.S. for its beauty products and food.
So, without further ado (*drum roll*), here are the nominees for Travel + Leisure's Destination of the Year 2016 (in alphabetical order):
1. America’s National Parks
9. Mexico City
10. New Zealand
15. Rio de Janeiro
17. Washington, D.C.
You can vote for your favorite spot here. The Readers Choice winner will be announced on November 14 together with the Destination of the Year 2016 winner, voted by the magazine's editors.
We already have a few favorites. Which one is yours?
