The year is about to end, so it is a good time to start planning the vacations or getaways that we will do in 2016, whether it is in Healthy Week, summer or on any bridge or weekend. To help you choose your destination, today we are going to talk about cities trend for next year. To do this, we are going to rely on Skyscanner's ranking of emerging cities.
After a thorough investigation, the comparator of flights, hotels and car rentals has made a list of 10 cities emerging, either for its historical, artistic or heritage wealth; its people, its customs or its gastronomy. Do you want to discover them? Well watch out!
First of all, we want to talk about Antwerp, which is the second most important population in Flanders, Belgium. This city that is considered the World Diamond Center houses one of the largest Jewish communities on the continent. Among its points of interest we highlight the Grote Markt and the Plaza Mayor.
At the second place on the list we find Podgorica, which is the largest city in Montenegro. Having been destroyed during the WWII, stands out for its modern constructions. In addition, it is important to note that it has a lot of gardens and green areas.
In Thailand we find the third city in the ranking. It is Krabi, one of the most visited provinces in the south of the country. Here you can enjoy cliffs, hot springs, sea caves, coral reefs, exquisite street cuisine ...
We return to Europe to tell you about Tromsø, a Norwegian city that is surrounded by fjords and islands. You will love the wooden houses of its old town and, of course, Polaria, an attraction that houses bearded seals. The Arctic Cathedral, its botanical gardens and the cable car also stand out.
In fifth position we find the Japanese city of Osaka, a modern and fascinating city with an excellent public transport network. There are many things you can do here, but we recommend dining at one of the restaurants thematic from the main street of the Namba neighborhood. We are referring to Dotombori.
Because of terrorism, France is not having a good time when it comes to tourism, but Skyscanner wanted to include a French city in its list of emerging destinations. It is Rennes, a city with 2,000 years of history with an important cultural and heritage wealth.
Dallas, United States
As it could not be otherwise, the comparator has not forgotten the United States. Thus, in seventh position we find Dallas, which is in the state of Texas. The best thing about this city is that the vast majority of cultural attractions are free.
In Italy, specifically on the island of Sicily, we find the eighth city on the list. This is Catania, whose history dates back more than 2,700 years. In fact, its historic center is considered a World Heritage Site by the Unesco. Its baroque architecture and its markets at street level stand out.
Anchorage, United States
We return to the United States to tell you about Anchorage, one of the most popular destinations in Alaska. As you can imagine, here you will enjoy nature in its purest form and a lot of adventures: hiking, bicycle touring, skiing, stream fishing, ice skating ... In addition, it is important to keep in mind that it hides excellent museums, theaters and restaurants.
A Coruña, Spain
Finally, we have to talk about the only Spanish city on the list. It is A Coruña, which in addition to housing impeccable beaches and a beautiful promenade, has the imposing Tower of Hercules, from where you will enjoy a unique sunset.
