KANAZAWA, JAPAN
Dubbed “Little Kyoto” for its numerous gardens and impressive temples, Kanazawa on Japan's central Honshu island has become more accessible to travelers. Chef Anthony Bourdain has also commended the Omi-cho Market in the region, saying it is an ultimate destination for any serious gourmand.

ICELAND
Tourism in Iceland has been booming lately but the aurora borealis it's known for shouldn’t take all the credit. For young adventurers, the place is considered a utopia, as many travelers opt to rent vans and brave the cold temperatures to hike up mountain after mountain and trek through waterfalls.

BERMUDA
Mark Twain once said, “You go to heaven if you want to, I’d rather stay right here in Bermuda.” You’ll begin to understand why the writer made those remarks once you find yourself on the seahorse-shaped archipelago. Then the only thing you will lose in the Bermuda Triangle is your will to return home.

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA
If the thought of snacking on dulce de leche while strolling around a city packed with French-inspired architecture after a night of dancing the tango to live music excites you, then let Buenos Aires, the classy (and sexy) capital of Argentina, move you the only way a Latin American country can.

OMAN
Oman may not be top-of-mind when listing down places to visit, but for all its soul and Old Arabian charm, it should be. “Exotic” doesn’t even begin to encapsulate the peace that awaits you in this sandy paradise dotted with opulent Middle Eastern palaces, where you will experience a culture steeped in a colorful past.

MOROCCO
Globetrotters have been flying to and from this exotic paradise for years and if you’ve ever wished to visit it, let this be the year you do it. Aside from being incredibly affordable, its souks offer a dizzying array of sights, scents, flavors, and textures.

Two words: wine county. Need we say more?

GRANADA, SPAIN
What makes Granada stand out from other Spanish regions is the palace fortress of Alhambra, a stunning reminder of Islamic Spain. Portraits of kings and queens don’t pepper the halls of this palace, but instead, the art is designed directly onto the walls.

NEW ZEALAND
Known worldwide as the setting for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films, New Zealand offers a magic of its own kinda natural wizardry deep within the Waitomo Caves, where boat rides are guided by the light emitted from thousands of glowworms.

TEHRAN, IRAN
The city of Tehran is a clean, very disciplined one, where modern architecture incorporates itself into the culture's ancient details. Tehran also houses museums for just about anything, from carpets to jewels and ceramics.
