The largest travel guide publisher – Lonely Planet – has announced the best destinations in 2017. Let’s explore which are honoured this year.

Best Country – Canada

best_country_canada_lonely_planet

Canada has always been a hot spot on the travel map of the world with its beautiful nature, “hulking-mountain and craggy-coast good look”. But the world second-largest country has more to offer. Lonely Planet recognized the country’s new leader Justin Trudeau as a breath of fresh air to release Canadian energy which was hidden in its dynamic cites. The year 2017 will mark 150th Canadian Confederation, which promises a country full of birthday parties and international events. The publisher also predicts a cheaper price to spend on Canadian fusion food and “mysteriously underrated wine” thanks to the weak Canadian dollar.

Best City – Bordeaux, France

Used to be called “Sleeping Beauty”; Bordeaux is now awake and ready for its new chapter. In mid-2017, the LGV Sud-Ouest line connecting Tours and Bordeaux will be completed and reduce travel time from Paris to Bordeaux from more than 3 hours down to just 2 hours. Bordeaux is absolutely a must destination for wine-lovers. There, La Cité du Vin will impress you with its supreme standard of wine-making. Besides, travel experts from Lonely Planet also appreciate the city’s gastronomic revolution.

TAXI2AIRPORT is available in Bordeaux Airport to offer you the most comfortable Bordeaux airport transfer.

Best Region – Choquequirao, Peru

best_region_choquequirao_lonely_planet

Located south of Peru, hidden in the Apurimac Vally, Choquequirao is selected as the best region to travel in 2017. Not as popular as Machu Picchu, Choquequirao is not the main attraction of Peru that people fly across oceans to see. It takes 2 days hiking to reach the place; but soon, in 2017, a cable car is expected to operate and bring 3,000 visitors there a day in just-15-minute-ride. That’s why it is a now-or-never moment to experience the lesser-known Choquequirao before it turns to be the next crowded Machu Picchu.

Best Value – Nepal

best_value_nepal_lonely_planet

“If you go there, it is easy to see why”, said Tony Wheeler – Lonely Planet founder – when he gave his comment on Nepal’s top ranking in Best Value. Food or accommodation is relatively cheap compared to Western living standards. The country has recovered from the 2015 earthquake tragedy and people are coming back there to bring the money to help restoring temples which were destroyed. The reason for the country’s popularity on travel map is its wonderful trekking routes and warm welcomed local citizens.
