Best Holiday Places to Travel in 2019

Travel in 2017 was a banner year for best holiday places to travel in a sustainable manner. It begun with  the United Nations backing the movement and many industry professionals pointing their compass towards these ideals, two years later, the momentum is still growing.

Being a sustainable traveler often means embracing your power to support lesser known destinations and their economies. When certain places receive too many visitors, the quality of life for locals (and travelers, for that matter) can start to deteriorate. Popular destinations are primed to be engines of broad economic growth for countries, but as demand rises, an unequal distribution of wealth occurs along with it.

In 2018 travel was all about far-flung, unexpected experiences—and 2019 is no different. But rediscovering the world’s must-sees, delving deeper into already-trendy destinations, and visiting countries worthy (and in need) of tourism are only some of the ways to travel well this year.

Sometimes the new year is not all about novelty, and travel in 2019 will require taking another look at destinations already on your radar. Here, are our best places to travel in 2019 – whether you’re looking to adventure, or indulge in some much needed self-care. Because the world, it seems, is our oyster, and doesn’t it look delicious.
