If you can’t de­cide where to go next year, travel guide com­pany Lonely Planet has some sug­ges­tions. The com­pany has picked the is­land na­tion of Sri Lanka and the Dan­ish cap­i­tal of Copen­hagen as its top des­ti­na­tions in the world to visit in 2019.

The Best in Travel 2019 book , cred­its Sri Lanka for be­ing open to new trav­el­ers. Its on­line guide says: “End­less beaches, time­less ru­ins, wel­com­ing peo­ple, oo­dles of ele­phants, rolling surf, cheap prices, fun trains, fa­mous tea and fla­vor­ful food make Sri Lanka ir­re­sistible.”

Copen­hagen earns ku­dos as “the epit­ome of Scandi cool” for its emerg­ing food scene and es­tab­lished de­sign hub.

The 2019 picks come from the com­pany’s ed­i­tors, re­searchers, lo­cals and oth­ers, whose se­lec­tions are then ranked by a panel of judges.
