Cue the wanderlust! Frommer’s travel editors have gone big with its annual “Best Places To Go” list, which includes destinations around the world.

After two years of domestic travel recommendations – while grappling with understaffed airports, flight delays and high petrol prices – the publication is declaring itself (cautiously) optimistic about this far-flung roster of cities, countries and regions on six continents.

The 15 destinations run the full gamut from white sand beaches to historic splendours. Some offer an alternative to over-touristed regions – head for Italy’s coastal Maratea, they say, which lies 177km south of the famous and very crowded Amalfi Coast.

Some offer major celebrations – Lithuania’s Vilnius is turning 700, for example. And some – including Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula – will offer new, streamlined ways to travel next year. The first phase of a US$10bil (RM44.8bil) rail project, a “train through the jungle” route that will ultimately link Cancun, Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Chichen Itza, is set to open in late 2023. – Tribune News Services
