Apply for a passport now or renew it in case it has expired! We are here to reveal our annual list of the best travel destinations to visit in the year ahead.

This isn’t just a matter of the 10 best places, but rather we have broken it down into four categories (countries, cities, regions and best value places). We realize that for some of us, travel is a necessity. You live in reality when you travel - because when we travel, we are awake. Finally, you will get reasons to buy a good camera and talk to a good picture framing service provider.

1. Puerto Rico
 
 

The forecast for 2019 on the island of Puerto Rico is mostly sunny and inviting. Leaving behind the devastating hurricanes of 2017, and fighting back from all the predicaments, Puerto Rico is making the most out of the opportunity to rebuild itself.

Beach towns like Condado and Isle Verde and the capital city San Juan are inviting tourists to visit their new and renovated hotels and restaurants.

Activities to jot down on the bucket list when visiting Puerto Rico:

  1. 1. Historic tours
  2. 2. Coastal sailing trips
  3. 3. Kayaking in San Juan Bay
  4. 4. Bacardi Distillery mixology lessons
  5. 5. Farjado’s bioluminescent-bay excursions.
  6. 6. La Placita market is a popular food and nightlife hub.
  7. 7. There are pubs that serve primo cocktails indoors or on the patio.

When to visit?

You can visit the island in the winter and the spring. These are the peak seasons when you'll witness paradise on Earth.

2. The Dead Sea
 
 
  • The Dead Sea is not like any other sea on the planet Earth.
  • It is surrounded by Israel, Palestine, and Jordan, in the heart of the Middle East.
  • It is a place that you are not likely to forget once you have visited.

Do you know?

The saltwater is too salty to support life and land is too dry to support any vegetation.

  • The sunrise and the sunset can confuse you and leave you wondering which out of the both was more beautiful.
  • Also, you can see the mountains across the sea bathed in the rosy morning light or even pass some time clicking pictures and watching the sun set behind the peaks. This picture definitely needs to be framed by a professional picture framing service provider.
  • A town is surviving without any fresh water and you surely will be surprised to see that. However, the water is godly and spa complexes in Israel and Jordan take advantage of the healing powers of the salt and other nutrients rich Dead Sea mud.
  • All day splashing is mostly not recommended in this sea but swimming in it is certainly what you should experience once in a lifetime.

Rules to follow before you dive into the sea:

  • don’t shave before getting in the water.
  • don’t get in the water even if there’s a small cut on your body.
  • don’t immerse your face under the water.
  • don’t jump into the water.

As it may lead to a stinging sensation.

3. Bhutan

Bhutan is the only carbon-negative country in the world and it can be your true gateway to sustainable tourism.

  • The unspoiled travel destination Bhutan is successful, not by the riches but by the happiness of the people living there.
  • It is the only country that has managed to achieve a negative carbon footprint, the perfect place for any discerning traveler to learn what exactly eco-friendly tourism truly means.
  • Bhutan also has an overabundance of the evergreen landscapes, ancient fortresses and temples, rice paddy terraces, wind-blown rocky cliffs that may harbor monasteries, and bustling cities looking little-changed, all the while adorned with bright prayer flags and slightly peeling rich-colored murals.
 
 

Bhutan is among those countries that have strict tourism rules, which require visitors to pre-arrange tours with licensed travel operators.

Things to keep in mind before backpacking to Bhutan:

  • A slow pace will do as this isn't a place to rush.
  • Take time and admire the intricacies of its traditional architecture and don't forget to chat with the locals.
  • Working ATMs are few and especially outside the cities, hence bring enough cash.
  • Spring is an ideal time to visit Bhutan as the weather is pleasant and stunning.
  • Also, don't forget to take a camera to return and frame some exquisite pictures from your picture framing service guy.
4. Siargao, The Philippines

The south of Philippines welcomes you with an island that is entirely covered by palm trees and is considered as the best island in the world by many. It is the perfect place to spend the upcoming vacations and experience the waves that the people there boast about.

  • This remote island has a small stretch of sand, low-strung hammocks, and pastel sunsets every day.
  • A "surf mecca" as the lovers of surfing call the island, has more than 15 world-class breaks and a handful of surf schools that keep the travelers busy.
  • The island is also blessed with crystal clear water and healthy coral reefs swarming with life.

Here is a list of things that you shouldn’t forget to do when in Siargao:

  1. #1 Enjoy the best Siargao Surf Spots!
  2. #2 Wake up for sunrise and chill out at the end of the Cloud 9 pier.
  3. #3 Take a 45-minute moped drive from the main tourist area of General Luna and try cliff jumping.

  5. #5 Alegria beach on the island is worth a visit. Famous for its white sand and crystal clear water this beach give you some great landscapes if you are the photogenic types.
  6. #6 A visit to the Pacifico beach is an experience you will never regret.
 
 
5. French Polynesia
 
 
  • Minimalism is still a concept that we won't agree to easily. However, you can visit French Polynesia and learn a bit of minimalism. We can learn how little you need to live.
  • Halfway between California and Australia, this island isn't just a singular sensation but a group of 118 small islands and atolls and more than a thousand miles of ocean.
  • If you are lucky enough to see the solar eclipse from here, then paradise will no more just be a myth for you. Each island is spread out. Ferries run only between some islands and they are infrequent and hard to find sometimes. The only option is to fly when you are in French Polynesia.

Here are a few tips that will help you make the most out of your French Polynesia trip:

  • In French Polynesia, everything happens slowly. So travel slow and don't just rush around with the aim to visit each island and spot quickly.
  • You will see the locals ride their bicycles and sing bonjour to everyone, you too.
  • Try meditating, smell the flowers and laze in turquoise lagoons.
  • To travel slowly you can go for a bicycle. Moving around on a bicycle chills you out and ensures you don’t miss anything. The locals will call out to you and you can even stop to snap a photo wherever you feel.
  • The roads are well-paved which make cycling easy.
6. Belize
 
 
  • Located between Guatemala to the west and south and Mexico to the north, Belize is the only country in Central America without a coastline on the Pacific Ocean.
  • It is one of Central America's smallest countries but the marine conservation movement in the country is huge.
  • In fact, Charles Darwin has deemed it as “the most remarkable reef in the West Indies”.
  • Recently it was removed from the UNESCO World Heritage site danger list.

There have been a number of extraordinary ocean protection and restoration measures:

  • a moratorium on maritime oil exploration
  • tougher regulations to safeguard mangrove forests
  • a planned government ban on plastic products by Earth Day 2019

Here are some activities that are highly recommended in Belize.

1. Cave tubing is the most recommended activity to do on a Belize vacation. You will be taken through the majestic Maya underworld where you will discover

  • stunning stalactites and stalagmites formations
  • astonishing crystal curtains
  • fire pits
  • Maya ceremonial pottery
  • wall carvings
  • glyph writings
  • the skeletal remains of sacrificial victims.

2. The oldest natural park of Belize, The Mountain Pine Ridge Nature Reserve encompasses a spectacular range of rolling hills, peaks, and gorges formed from some of the oldest rocks in Central America.

It is a good place to have some amazing pics for your Instagram page or blog.

3. You can become Indiana Jones for a day and take the Actun Tunichil Muknal tour. You will have the opportunity to view impressive stalactites and stalagmites inside the cave along with Maya pottery that has been undisturbed for centuries.
