9 Best Travel Destinations in 2019
There are still several months until the summer holiday season kicks in but that does not mean that you should not plan your next vacation now. In fact, one of the biggest travel trends in 2019 is multiple vacations. That’s right – you do not need to feel guilty or lazy if you take several holidays or road trips this year because the latest trends demand namely that. Other tendencies in this field which will rule during the next 12 months are:
- Places with an unknown or little-known culture
- Spots that will give you a front-row seat to wildlife and nature
- Film-inspired travel destinations
- Newly-revived holiday hotspots
Pack your bags and set off to one (or more) of the following fantastic destinations.

One of the hottest and most talked about films of this last year was Crazy Rich Asians.

St Barth’s, The Caribbean
Less than two years ago, St Barth’s was hit by a devastating storm. Luckily, this heavenly place has managed to fully recover from that natural disaster and this year it is making a big comeback. New hotels, new beach clubs and many palm trees. What more does one need?
The past few years were rather unstable for Egypt. The country was under the grip of a major political crisis between 2011 and 2014 which pushed tourists away. In 2019, Egypt is finally getting back on its feet and it is prepping for the opening of one of the world’s most stunning museums – The Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM).
The Turkish Riviera
Most Brits head to the French Riviera when they want to catch some sun rays. As of 2019, however, there will be direct flights from London to Dalaman. Take full advantage of that and you will enjoy a more budget-friendly beach holiday.
The Peloponnese, Greece
If Greece’s Mykonos and Santorini are too crowded for you, travel to Peloponnese. Exploring this part of the country is easier than ever now that the Patras-Pyrgos train route is back in operation.
In a mood for a safari? Go to Namibia and you will see various exotic animals – from jackals and zebras to giraffes and elephants. Many new camps are scheduled to open in 2019 and you can be among the first tourists to visit them.
