Lonely Planet released their “Best in Travel 2023,” which provides a diverse range of destinations to sate any traveler’s sense of wanderlust.
From Boise to Bhutan, the list includes 30 destinations around the world, and each location comes with curated itineraries shaped by expert local perspectives.
TOP 10 TRAVEL MUST-HAVES, ACCORDING TO THE EXPERTS
“We really try to think about this list as a range of destinations to consider, places that you may not have thought of for reasons you might not have considered, but really told through the voice of local people and local expertise who call the places home,” said Nitya Chambers, senior VP and spokesperson of Lonely Planet.
For example, a week-long itinerary for a trip to Alaska weaves together the landscapes and the local indigenous culture, according to Chambers.

For people considering where to travel in the new year, Chambers recommends asking yourself one important question: What are the things that your heart will not rest until you see them and experience them?
“There’s a sense of really looking deep into yourself to understand the things that you really want to see – that you know are going to restore you, that you know are going to give you a greater sense of connection and appreciation to the life that you live every day – that you can take something from that experience back with you that gives you a sense of peace,” she said.
