Fodor’s 2019 no travel list

The Tribune (SLO) (Sunday) - - Living -

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,” 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

4. Myan­mar

5. Nicaragua

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.
