The Best Cities to Visit for Your 2019 Bucket List, According to Travel Experts

Time to schedule those vacation leaves for next year!

Thinking of widening your horizons in the coming year, but still have no idea where to go? If you’d like to skip the usual destinations you see on your Instagram feed, Lonely Planet has recently released a list of 10 of the best cities to visit based on vote made by travel experts. From Asia to Europe, these places aren’t on the usual tourist agenda, but will nevertheless give you the adventure you’ve been looking for.

Copenhagen, Denmark

This European city takes the top spot on the list. Experience hygge (pronounced as “hoo-gah”), a word which connotes all the cozy feelings felt in a warm, safe place, in this homey city. Walk or bike through its parks and visit cheap but healthy eats in places such as Sonny and Hooked.

Shenzhen, China

If you’re heading to Hong Kong, might as well get a visa and fly over to Shenzhen, which is just less than two hours away from the famous business capital. Totally metropolitan, you'll enjoy moving from streets littered with high-rise buildings to small alleys with secret art stores and galleries, dotted by deliciously cheap noodle restos that hit the spot.  

Novi Sad, Serbia

Considered the second largest city in this southeastern European country, Novi Sad has a very rich architectural history. Many beautiful Old World structures can easily be visited. In fact, Trg Slobode, which is the largest city square, has been there since the 18th century, and many of the monuments and building surrounding it date as far back as the 1700s.

Miami isn’t just about the beaches. Booming with an interesting nightlife, this city is also home to many artists, interesting modern architectural wonders, and a year-round slew of food festivals.

Kathmandu, Nepal

Kathmandu continues to rise above the damage caused by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that happened in 2015. A bustling city that’s home to both traditional Hindu and Buddhist sites as well as clubs and casinos, it thrives on tourism, as it stands as the gateway to the Himalayas.

Lonely Planet also reccommends Mexico City, Mexico; Dakar, Senegal; Seattle, U.S.; Zadar, Croatia; and Meknes, Morocco.
