Tripoto

Days are shorter. Nights are longer. Weather is cooler, and the New Year seems closer. However, summers is a long way, which actually leaves me thinking: Where to travel in 2019? Over the past one year, cozy destinations like Bali and Italy have managed to rule the Facebook / Instagram accounts, and year-round destinations like Vietnam, Dubai, and Mykonos have had their moments. From the untraveled classic beach destination which has been touted as another version of Iceland – The Atlantic Ocean, or an untouched spot for rum lovers – Cuba; my did-you-know list is sure to help you plan your trip for 2019:

The first thing that comes to mind after hearing this name: tragic and horrific history of genocide! Rwanda, also popularly known as the “Switzerland of Africa” for a reason that is pretty clear: calm, clean, disciplined. While travellers visit Rwanda to explore the mountain gorillas at Volcanoes National Park, there’s more to it - incredibly beautiful lakes and landscapes, local villages and markets to get a feel of the regular life there.

Places to visit in Rwanda: Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre, Chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe Forest National Park, Lake Kivu, Park National de Volcans

Where to stay: Hotel des Mille Collines (4-star property), Lake Kivu Serena Hotel (4-star property)

One of the best destinations known for its fleet of luxury resorts with numerous 5-star properties; you can witness and explore the most fascinating properties in town - Four Seasons Costa Palmas, 1 Hotel, and Nobu Hotel and more. These additions only raise the bar to an already established luxury spot.

Places to visit in Los Cabos: Lovers beach, Cabo Pulmo National Park, Arch of Cabo San Lunas

Where to stay: Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos (5-star property), Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort (5-star property)

New Zealand has also been listed as one of the most desired destinations to visit, especially for solo-travellers who’re looking for a safe environment; and that is exactly what New Zealand offers. Get ready for the dynamic Maori culture, an array of national parks, and some breath-taking adventurous activities; because the trip is incomplete without a few attempts of Hiking, bungee jumping, skiing, etc. at the adventure capital of the world.

Places to visit in New Zealand: Explore Fiorland, Bay of Island, Waitomo Glowworm Caves, Hike the Tongariro Alpine Crossing

Where to stay: Sofitel Auckland, Verandahs Backpacker Lodge Auckland

Home to the most beloved superstar, Bob Marley, this Caribbean Island is an enthralling blend of pristine coastline, a laid-back lifestyle, some deliciously spiced cuisine, and fascinating Rastafarian religion. When in Jamaica, try your hands at discovering the secret recipe to some of their local dishes, an attempt at speaking their native language, and a sip of rum or scotch during the sunset at one of the many beachside shacks.

Places to visit in Jamaica: Montego Bay, Dunn's River Falls, Negril Beach, & the Negril Cliffs

Where to stay: Spanish Court Hotel, Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa, Jamaica Inn
