With a mix of destinations from the other side of the world, unexpected places and more familiar wonders, the magazine adds that “many of the destinations are charting a path to economic recovery”, while others are “thriving, growing and changing”.

From Valencia to Seoul, and from Devon to the Galapagos Islands, in no particular order, here is a list of the world’s 50 best places of the year.
