We wanted to make it easier for you to choose places to travel in 2017 and thus here are 39 alluring destinations for you to choose from.

(Wait. Did we just make the choice even more difficult? Oops!)

39. Cuba

 

Cuba

From the allure of colorful mosaics to the vintage car-filled streets, there is plenty to love about the destination–including its sun-drenched coastline.

38. Bermuda

 

Bermuda

Bermuda may be known for its pink sand beaches and colorful namesake shorts, but it will soon be synonymous with one of the world’s preeminent regattas, since the mid-Atlantic island will host the 35th America’s Cup in June 2017. Book your tickets y’all!

 

37. Athens

 

Athens

Travel to Athens is a must for history and archeology buffs, but the city’s hillsides and picturesque vistas will be equally appreciated by nature lovers. When you visit Athens, be sure to take in the city’s legendary historical sites – The Acropolis, The Parthenon, The Temple of Hephaestus, The National Archeological Museum, The Ancient Agora, and Mount Lycabettus.

 

36. Bali

 

Indonesia, Bali, Sidemen Valley, Iseh, Rice Fields and Gunung Agung Volcano

From active volcanoes to wild jungles, Bali truly has it all. But, most versatile are the many beaches that line the island’s shore. The picturesque view of the mountains complemented by blue skies is the view I’ve been dying to experience.

35. Angra dos Reis, Brazil

 

Angra dos Reis, Brazil

Angra dos Reis is a Brazilian municipality in southwest Rio de Janeiro state, and it’s oh-so-gorgeous! It’s made up of 365 islands and a small port surrounded by steep, forested coastline.

All the islands in Portugal and the Azores have volcanic origins, although some, such as Santa Maria, have had no recorded activity since the islands were settled. Mount Pico, on the island of Pico, is the highest point in Portugal, at 2,351 m (7,713 ft).

Jerusalem

If you’ve had enough of beaches in 2016, Jerusalem promises to be a good change in 2017. Holy to Jews, Christians and Muslims, Jerusalem’s Old City is one of the world’s foremost pilgrimage destinations. Visit Jerusalem to walk in the footsteps of prophets, pray in buildings constructed by order of caliphs and kings, and overnight in hospices where Crusaders and cardinals have slumbered. With the soundtrack of church bells, the muezzin’s call and the shofar (ram’s horn), and the streets smelling of everything from church incense to the heady aromas of the spice souq (market), it’s a sensory and spiritual experience unlike any other.

 

30. New Zealand

 

New Zealand

As the planet heats up environmentally and politically, it’s good to know that New Zealand exists. Make this uncrowded, green, peaceful and accepting country the ultimate escape. Sometimes, it’s good to feel at peace in a world trying to rush into madness.

Cambodian Coast

Fly down to Cambodian Coast to answer the call of the beach, the South Coast will not disappoint.

It’s fitting that harbourside Helsinki, capital of a country with such watery geography, entwines so spectacularly with the Baltic’s bays, inlets and islands. While Helsinki can seem a younger sibling to the Scandinavian capitals, it’s the one that went to art school, scorns pop music and works in a cutting-edge studio. The design scene here is one of the most electrifying in the world today, with boutiques, workshops and galleries proliferating in the Design District, Helsinki’s thoroughfares and intriguing backstreets.

Madagascar

Get moving in Madagascar already! Madagascar is unlike anywhere you will ever be – fantastically beautiful, amazingly diverse for its size (similar to France) and still so unspoiled.

The magnificent ruins of Hampi dot an unearthly landscape that has captivated travellers for centuries. Heaps of giant boulders perch precariously over miles of undulating terrain, their rusty hues offset by jade-green palm groves, banana plantations and paddy fields.
