Travel Off Path has all the time been a supply of stories and journey data that’s written by vacationers, for vacationers. Travel is in our blood. Between all of our writers and employees, we’ve visited virtually each nation on the planet.
As the brand new yr approaches, vacationers are eagerly planning their journeys for 2023, and we at Travel Off Path aren’t any exception.
We needed to do one thing a bit totally different on this article, so we requested our employees what the highest vacation spot they want to go to in 2023 is in order that we might share it with you.
Many “top destinations” articles throughout the web merely report search knowledge from reserving platforms or are sponsored lists. For our Top Destinations Of 2023, we needed to share probably the most wish-listed locations of our well-traveled employees.
When the query “What is the destination you most want to visit in 2023” was despatched out, we weren’t stunned to search out out that many people couldn’t choose only one! After all, we’re all touring on a regular basis, so why restrict ourselves?
With that in thoughts, learn on to search out out the locations we’re dreaming about most for subsequent yr!
Kashlee Kucheran, CEO
“There are so many cultural and historical experiences beyond the normal resort vacation that travelers need to see for themselves. You could spend 10 years exploring Mexico and not even scratch the surface of what it has to offer. For anyone thinking Mexico is just all-inclusives, I beg you to look closer.”
“Albania truly has all the best of what Europe has to offer for a fraction of the price and with a much safer and more welcoming environment. It’s a wonderful gem, mostly unknown to westerners, and one that deserves to be top of your 2023 destination list.”
“Turkey is a sensational country filled with Bucket List experiences. Everything from bustling cities to quiet seaside towns awaits, with amazing food, language, and weather. If you want the seaside, try Izmikr, Kas, and Bodrum. For cities, you can’t go wrong with Istanbul and Ankara.”
Trevor Kucheran, Director
“Mexico is the last word vacation spot. It has the landscapes of all the world, all positioned in only one nation. Mountains, deserts, rivers, jungles, and oceans. One day you can be browsing in Puerto Escondido; the following day, you can be in a comfy snow-covered cabin in Durango.
As far as Tourism is anxious, Mexico is the king. With unbelievable beachfront cities like Cancun and Cabo, guests won’t ever be disillusioned with their holidays.
For digital nomads and sluggish vacationers, Mexico has dozens of charming and inexpensive cities and cities with an unbelievable high quality of life brimming with tradition. For the final decade, it’s all the time been my primary selection, and I really feel like my love for Mexico is simply starting.”
Tyler Fox, Managing Editor
Having the liberty to work from wherever comes with critical benefits… and temptations. Temptations like packing all of it up and transferring to a different nation! My high locations for 2023 are all areas I want to discover extra to see if I want to stay there long-term.
“Istanbul has always seemed like a fascinating destination, and I can’t wait to see it for myself. One of my favorite things to do while traveling is explore the historical attractions in the area, and Istanbul is filled to the brim with them. The Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, and the Basilica Cistern are all musts during my trip.”
“Tirana is a place I would love to check out. Albania’s digital nomad visa is definitely something that I’ve considered, and I’m very curious to see what life would be like in the capital city. Also, Tirana seems like an excellent place to call home base, especially because Americans can stay for up to a year without a visa.”
“Whenever we write about Mexico, I wish to e-book the following flight out! I’ve been earlier than, however there may be a lot extra to the nation than a resort keep within the Riviera Maya. Cancun, Tulum, Bacalar, Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Los Cabos, La Paz… Mexico has so many locations, and I wish to see all of them!
The individuals I’ve met at conferences who’re from Mexico had been among the nicest individuals there, and they’re one other huge cause for me eager to see extra of the nation.”
Vinicius Costa – Senior Writer
“Serving as capital to one of Europe’s less visited and most mysterious countries, Sofia is Bulgaria’s financial and cultural center, where communist-era monuments and far more ancient Romanesque ruins are constantly battling for dominance in an incongruent, yet beautiful cityscape. It is also one of the continent’s oldest cities, making it an ideal destination for Historophiles.”
São Paulo, Brazil
“A largely overlooked metropolitan behemoth, Latin America’s largest city may not be necessarily famous for its collection of historic landmarks, which is understandably limited, but it truly shines as a foodie destination and a diverse, multicultural hub. Here, you will see Japanese, Jew, Arab, Lithuanian, Polish and Italian neighborhoods clumped together, still retaining their ethnic character and cuisine – just to name a few – and perhaps Brazil’s most vibrant nightlife and social scene.”
Istanbul, Turkey / Turkiye
“One of the most mystical cities on the planet, Istanbul’s greatness knows no borders: it has districts in Europe and Asia, with the former’s imperial Balkan charm often overlapping with the latter’s Anatolian-oriental flair. As Philip Mansel puts it, it is the “city of the world’s desire” with views to be admired for days.”
Andrea Miliani – Travel Writer
“Call me a romantic, but Italy has that unique, flirty charm that you won’t find in another country. I am especially interested in off-the-beaten-path destinations I haven’t visited before, like Cinque Terre and Elba Island—where my ancestors are from. That mix of fascinating historical architecture, delicious gastronomy, and stunning landscapes that you find in Italy make it a wonderful travel experience for anyone.”
“I’m so curious about Albania! This destination became very popular this year, and the videos and photos are truly impressive. The beaches have spectacular turquoise waters, the Albanian Alps seem to have amazing trails, and the museums look very interesting. I want to visit while it’s still affordable and before it gets too popular.”
Laura Taylor – Travel Writer
Yellowstone National Park
“Yellowstone is one of my absolute favorite places in the world – with the rainbows, bubbling hot springs, herds of bison roaming free, and seemingly endless expanses of wilderness, it’s always felt magical to me. There are also so many things to do and see there (and in the border communities, like catching a movie at the IMAX theatre over in West Yellowstone!), I feel like it never gets old.”
Megan Gibbons – Travel Writer
“Over the previous yr, I’ve volunteered with a bunch that helps asylum seekers and refugees in my group. Through this work, I’ve gotten to know so many sort, courageous, and resilient households from all around the world and have been uncovered to cultures I didn’t know a lot about earlier than. So my best choice of locations I’d like to go to in 2023 is impressed by a tremendous group of ladies who’ve proven me the fantastic thing about their tradition – the nation of Georgia. Georgia is my high choose for 3 particular causes: the individuals, the land, and the meals (my favourite cause for journey).
The Georgian households I’ve come to know are so sort and hospitable that I’d think about touring to their nation could be a really welcoming expertise. When we discuss Georgia, all of them mild up and excitedly clarify how lovely of a rustic it’s, and the photographs I’ve seen are beautiful. And lastly, after a number of very particular home-cooked Georgian meals, I’ve come to the conclusion that Georgian meals must be as standard and well-known as Italian meals. It is completely scrumptious and actually distinctive. I sit up for consuming my method by way of Georgia in 2023.”
Nicolin Collingridge – Travel Writer
“With waves from a surfer’s dream, epic volcanoes to climb, and a fascinating history to absorb, this country often gets overlooked compared to the larger countries in Central America (which means fewer tourist crowds). Every person I’ve spoken to has only sung this country’s praises, so I can’t wait to see what everyone is talking about in 2023.”
Dale Peterson – Travel Writer
“Nicaragua is a diverse country with many adventurous things to do. Great beaches for surfing, outdoor activities like volcano hikes and volcano boarding, and exploring colonial cities like León and Granada are reasons I’m hoping to visit Nicaragua in 2023.”
