Fodor’s 2019 no travel list
Most travel top 10 lists showcase fabulous spots to travel, hidden gems, up-and-coming spots and iconic experiences. Fodor’s travel experts, of course, do that, offering up a GO List of 52 memorable destinations around the world. But we’re fascinated by Fodor’s no list.
It’s the third annual offering of places to avoid – including Acapulco, Ibiza and, ahem, the U.S. – for a variety of reasons, including violence, political and environmental issues, tourism run amok and a category they’ve dubbed “places that give us pause.”
“We use travel as a means to broaden our minds and expand our humanity,” Fodors.com editorial director Jeremy Tarr said in a news release, “and use our No List findings as a means to foster dialogue as to how things can be improved in places where the current situation is grim.”
Here’s the list for 2019:
1. Acapulco, Mexico
2. Boracay, Philippines
3. Ibiza, Spain
6. Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo
7. Maya Beach, Thailand 8. “Places That Don’t Want You to Visit”
9. “Places That Give Us Pause” – including Brazil, China and the U.S.
