Travel + Leisure reveals picks for the top places to visit in 2019

Editors at Travel + Leisure magazine have released their picks for the top destinations to visit in 2019, a list that includes destinations like India's Andaman Islands, Hungary's under-the-radar wine region Etyek, and emerging capitals of culture like Nairobi and Panama City. 

 

 

 

The US travel magazine is the latest to throw in their two cents on the top places to visit in 2019, after media outlets like Lonely Planet, National Geographic Travel and Fodor's among others. 

For their list of 50 best places to visit in 2019, Travel + Leisure editors studied press releases, tourism statistics, marquee hotel, restaurant and museum openings and new flight routes. They also considered anecdotal trends from Instagram, friends and family and consulted their network of travel experts around the globe. 

Some places on the list will be familiar and no-brainer favorites -- New York City, Los Cabos, Mexico, Berlin, Seychelles and Santiago, Chile. Other places may be lesser known in some parts of the world and pique curiosity. 

The Andaman Islands, for instance, is a chain of more than 300 islands strung between India and Thailand, and feature unspoiled beaches, coconut trees and tropical mangroves. 

Nairobi, Kenya is cited as an emerging design capital, while Panama City has become an exciting food city. 

And the emirate of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates is a rich spot for art and history, while Hungary's Etyek is a fertile wine region.
