Picture this, your travel plans are all set since the beginning of the year. All itineraries are laid out as detailed as you can… and you are set to an amazing year of travel and adventure! Then the unexpected happened. Discounted airfares are no longer available and seat sales are over. It felt like your world has fallen apart. Schedules and budget has to be reconsidered… and you’re back to square one.
That’s what happened to me early this year.
One day, I was browsing the web for any travel updates and to get an idea on the hottest destination for 2019. Viola! Lonely Planet already released their Best Travel Destinations for 2019 as early as mid-October 2018.
Top cities include:
- Copenhagen, Denmark
- Shēnzhèn, China
- Novi Sad, Serbia
- Miami, Florida, USA
- Kathmandu, Nepal
- Mexico City, Mexico
- Dakar, Senegal
- Seattle, USA
- Zadar, Croatia
- Meknès, Morocco
Top 10 Countries are:
- Sri Lanka
- São Tomé and Príncipe
Early 2018, BEST LIFE QATAR also released 18 Cities to Visit this 2018 and this is to encourage expats in Qatar to consider a weekend sojourn to countries within 5 hour travel distance from Doha.
Next year 2019, I feel that the prospect of travel is not going to change. Even if the world economies change, people will still get that desire to keep going… no matter what. Recent travels even introduced us to cities that are not so popular before but has interesting things to offer now. Or probably, many travelers are looking for something new and unique than the regular postcard destinations.
Sri Lanka for one has been a recent hit making it very attractive to curious travelers. While amidst the natural disasters that struck the nation, Kathmandu in Nepal is poised to lure travelers looking out to experience colorful culture and amazing landscapes.
NEW TRAVEL BUDDY
While we are immersed to think that DIY travel is the way to go, there’s an interesting blog that I read that could probably make us rethink about it.
According to The Cheat Sheet, a lifestyle site with a tagline: save time and live more, “…some studies indicate that travelers spend 30 hours researching and preparing for a trip. And many visit up to 38 sites before actually making a reservation”.
While we do not refute that the fun begins with plotting out your itinerary and cross referencing various articles up to gathering more information about your target locations. However, for those who have very limited time and budget, making a mistake can be more costly and could ruin the whole experience.
That’s why for those who want to be safe on their travel plans, it’s best to consult a TRAVEL AGENT.
