What are the criteria for the Best In Travel 2019 places to be picked?

Our best In Travel 2019 destinations are not a heads-up of where travellers are going but a means to express where travellers should consider visiting in the coming year. The reasons for suggesting a certain destination may vary — it could be that there is something special going on that year, that there's been recent development and a lot of buzz about the place, or that we think it's up-and-coming and suggest travellers visit before the crowds do.

While some of the destinations are up-and-coming, others are well-travelled but have a timely angle for the year. We endeavour to select a good mix of destinations, appealing to all types of travellers. Some are more intrepid, others are perennial favourites but with something particularly special taking place that year.
