New year, new journey. This 2013 brings some special destinations, chosen by the prestigious Lonely Planet. According to experts, the best places to visit this year are:
Location: Sri Lanka (ASIA)
Why? A touristically untapped country, Sri Lanka surprises visitors with its rich culture and varied cuisine. It is also an ideal place for practising ecotourism.
Location: Montenegro (EUROPE)
Why? This is one of the most wild places in Europe. Besides, the area in which it is-the Balkans- is the perfect places for doing adventure activities or for staying in direct contact with nature
Location: South Korea (ASIA)
Why? Traditionally eclipsed between China and Japan, South Korea is attracting more and more tourists, thanks to its close neighbor North Korea, where being a tourist is alosmot as complicated as to be one on Mars. In addition, this year various high-level sporting events are taking place in the country, so there will be even more efforts to leave a good impression to visitors.
Location: Ecuador (AMERICA)
Why? Compared to Argentina, Brazil and Chile, Ecuador is a much smaller and a much less known country. Thus, it remains untouched and yet to be discovered by travelers. Besides culture or gastronomy, Ecuador is a country of contrasts between the sea area, the mountains and the Amazon. The Galapagos Islands also belong to Ecuador. The railway line will be renewed this 2013, facilitating displacement in the country.
Our recommendation: finding accommodation in Ecuador is relatively easy, and there are many places to look for it. We recommend the following site: http://www.worldbestrooms.com/index.php/rooms/search/
