Top 10 Most Searched Travel Destinations

Cuba

Its doors opening to American tourists, with the growing crowds and rising prices this will surely entail, make Cuba a must-visit-now destination.

Sure, it has some of the Caribbean’s best beaches and full-service resorts that ensure your every need is met, but don’t ignore its capital and largest city, Havana. Havana generates its own energy while forcing you to slow down and enjoy the music that seems to emanate from every open window, the candy-colored cars that appear to have cruised in from the 1950s, and the mojito that—you’d swear—simply materialized in your hand.

Portugal

With its peeling paint and cracked cobblestone roads, Lisbon is like a beautiful older woman, proud of her signs of age and all the lovelier for it. Porto is the new kid on the tourism block, all flash but with plenty of substance, too. South of Lisbon, the many palaces and manses of Sintra seem to have emerged from a storyteller’s dreams.

The adventurous will want to head for the southern coast and the nearest surf camp, or, for a rare treat, hop a short flight to the Azores, where verdant canyons, crater lakes and lava-carved caves await exploration.

Malta

Tiny and unassuming, Malta packs a cultural punch. From the Romans and Moors to the French and British, it seems every great power had once ruled over the Mediterranean archipelago, and each has left its mark, endowing Malta with countless historic sites, including massive fortresses and four-thousand-year-old burial grounds.

But Malta is so much more than its ancient history, it is also a blend of Italian and Middle-Eastern cuisine, it is rocky coastline and deep blue waters, and it is its warmly welcoming people.
