Phang-nga-bay Thailand

Although every country on Earth is on a map, there is still much-uncharted territory to discover. With destinations from previous years now losing their sparkle, it is time to seek out that next best location where you can enjoy all the simple pleasures of life, like beaches, mountains, deserts, and oceans. Here are the top 5 travel destinations of 2019:

Koh Samui, Thailand

For the water sports enthusiast, no place is like Koh Samui, Thailand, a lesser known destination close to the ever-popular Phuket. The waters here are a deep sapphire, and the number of recreational activities are aplenty. Want to try wakeboarding, surfing, and swimming with marine life all in one day? Seek jungle excursions in Jeeps? Visiting ancient temples and the Big Buddha? You can do that here in Koh Samui. Don’t forget the affordable prices of Thailand and the overall hospitality of the locals. You’ll feel right at home.

Corsica & Sardinia

If sailing and boating is your thing, then the two islands in the Mediterranean Sea called Corsica and Sardinia are a combination worth visiting. The azure waters, pristine skies, open seas, and the jaw-dropping coastline of Costa Smeralda or the hidden alcoves of Desert des Agriates will astound you. The best part is that much of the area has yet to be swamped with tourists, leaving the high seas and boat storage widely open and available throughout the year. The gastronomy scene is budding on Corsica now, as well. Are you reading sip drinks like a celebrity while sunbathing and stargazing?

Norway

Do you seek Valhalla? Then get yourself to Norway, where there are no laws for where you can roam when out in nature. You can wander the icy fjords, the rocky coastline, and the heavenly mountain peaks. The best part is that Norway combines modern urban zones like Oslo or the quaint beauty of Bergen with the captivating sights of untarnished nature. You can visit world-class attractions then take a hike up an uninhabited mountain in the Geirangerfjord. Or you can visit traditional farmsteads, visit nature parks, try fly fishing, skiing, or enjoy some whale watching. At the Lofoten Islands, you can even find the Lofotr Viking Museum.

Namibia

Like Norway, Namibia has a “free-roaming” policy, making it a charming destination for those who don’t want a goal line. The intense beauty of this African country can be found in every salt flat, ghostly ship wreck, the desiccated Deadvlei, massive dunes in Sossusvlei, and the Skeleton Coast. You can find animals wandering through the desert and places like the Etosha National Park without any fences to contain them. For those seek even more thrills, check out the lodges along the beach at Skeleton Coast, or the hotels recently built in the Namib desert. There is so much to discover in Namibia, so get started.

Grenada

Compared to the highly trafficked Caribbean islands around Grenada, this tiny island has yet to become a hot spot on the tourism radar. That means it’s the ideal time to take that cruise or flight to Grenada. The island has a bounty of sandy beaches, enthralling culture, tantalizing seafood, and dozens of adventure options available. For example, you can either get a massage by the beach or you can opt to hike to waterfalls through the jungle. Many eco-conscious hotels and inns are popping up, too. Rum drinkers will also find a number of distilleries to visit.

Next year looks like it is going to be a grand adventure, especially if you go to any one of these top travel destinations in 2019. With seaside retreats and marvelous mountaintops, you will see unfathomable things and make precious memories. The only thing left to decide is where you will be headed first!
