Would you like to go somewhere new in 2012? National Geographic Traveler editors deliberated on the next up-and-coming places and published the Best of the World 2012 special section in our November-December issue.
Across the pond, Travel PR UK collected the bucket lists of various other travel experts, such as Frommers, Lonely Planet and World Travel Market, and helpfully plotted the color-coded results on their Hot Destinations Map.
Richard Mellor of Travel PR kindly added most of Traveler’s Best of the World picks (green pins), while Frommers is represented by yellow pins, Lonely Planet by red, World Travel Market by pink, Travel PR by blue, and News.com.AU by purple. If you click on the pins in the enlarged version of the map, you will get info about each destination. Happy clicking!
