Guidebook company Lonely Planet has revealed its 18th annual “Best in Travel” list. The 2023 edition is in a slightly different format than it has been in years past. Rather than a simple list, the destinations are split up into five categories – eat, learn, journey, unwind and connect. “This year, we really wanted to try something new and we wanted to reflect the way that we saw travelers looking for travel, which was about the destination, but also about the experience,” explains Nitya Chambers, executive editor and senior vice president of content at Lonely Planet. Lonely Planet reaches out to its wide network of contributors around the world and asks them to nominate destinations they believe should be on the list. From there, editors at Lonely Planet HQ begin to ask more questions, work their sources and narrow down the options until it is released in November.
That might mean taking a chance on a new country, like Malta or Guyana, that all your friends haven’t been to yet. It might mean choosing a less-visited place in a favorite destination, like Marseille rather than Paris or Fukuoka instead of Tokyo. All four spots are among the 30 destinations of the 2023 list. It’s no surprise that Lima appears as one of the picks under the “eat” section of Lonely Planet’s list – Peru’s capital has been racking up the recognition for years on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. However, its South American sibling Montevideo – another “eat” entry – is not as high profile. Street food lovers should head to Kuala Lumpur. The capital is a perfect location for an introduction to food from all over Malaysia, like nasi lemak (the unofficial national dish), Penang-style curries and Peranakan classics like fish maw soup.
As the world opened up after long Covid restrictions, many travelers felt the urge to connect or reconnect with others. Boise, the capital of Idaho, is home to the biggest Basque community in the world outside of Spain, and makes Lonely Planet’s “connect” list. Some local residents still speak the Basque language, learn traditional dances and make paella big enough to feed the entire town. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Sydney also makes the list. The Australian city is known for its friendly inhabitants, as well as for its beautiful beaches, top-notch food scene and … oh yeah, a pretty cool opera house. People with African heritage may want to head to Accra, Ghana, for their own sense of connection. The country, also on the list, observed a Year of Return in 2019, which brought people from all over the diaspora to Ghana for fellowship and community. Just because the year passed doesn’t mean that the sense of connection has gone: Ghana wants to hit a goal of eight million tourists per year.
The pandemic spurred another powerful desire, too: the stress of working from home while homeschooling the kids over Zoom means many travelers just want to take a long break. Island destinations, like Jamaica and Dominica in the Caribbean, are just the place to unwind, according to Lonely Planet. The former is high on Chambers’ personal list for 2023. “There’s just an opportunity with our kids in the summer (to) spend some more time, go immerse and have the experience of living somewhere where you can really feel changed and transformed by being part of another place.”
Malta – another “unwind” destination – is a lesser-known gem with the climate of Italy and the landscape of the Middle East. And in Asia, the Indonesian archipelago of Raja Ampat might be one of the last paradises left on Earth. This spot is loved for eco-tourism and is home to a massively successful coral restoration project. Lonely Planet designated six “journey” spots, places for the most wanderlust-y of travelers. It’s no surprise that the central Asian kingdom of Bhutan made the cut.
