Is 2018 your year to travel? If you’re still trying to figure out the best places for your international travel destinations this year, you’ve come to the right place. Many countries are adding new accomodations to attract new tourists, so get to these countries before all your friends do!

Whether you want to trek through the Vilcanota mountain range in Peru or immerse yourself in the culture of South Africa, below are some of the best locations to visit in 2018.

Southern Italy

While many people who imagine going to Italy put Rome, Florence, and Venice on the top of their list, the secret to a relaxing vacation is to venture over to areas of southern Italy. Places like the Aeolian Islands in Sicily and the city of Matera in Basilicata will provide you with less crowds but many beautiful sites.


South Africa

If you’re into the arts and want to celebrate a part of history this year, head to South Africa. 2018 celebrates Nelson Mandela’s Centenary. The Nelson Mandela Foundation has launched a program that will have a variety of activities ranging from education and the arts to exhibitions and sports.


The Choquequirao trek in Peru takes you through the Vilcanota mountain range to Machu Picchu. While this trek used to only offer breath-taking sites to those who were willing to undulge in the adventurous hike, they say a gondola will be built within the next three years drawing an even larger crowd to Peru. So make sure you plan your trip soon to take in the sites before everyone else!
