My 5 Top Places to Visit This Year

I’ve recently become frightened that US Airways will be going through a huge devaluing. After reading Lucky’s recent post about his fears, my expediency to book at least one award using my US Airways miles has been hastened.  This got me thinking about where I want to go this upcoming year.

I’ve never really assembled a list of places I’ve wanted to travel to before, I’ve just gone. But now that i’m making my reservations far in advance, I have to think about where I’ll want to go in the future, rather than just where I want to be in a few weeks (don’t ask, I’m trying to be less last minute).

I’ve been reading many lists covering desirable destinations, as well as trip reports.  I decided i wanted to go to Bali and Kuala Lumpur earlier, in fact I picked Kuala Lumpur as a place to return to two years ago when I first had a layover there. Besides those two I’ve come up with a list of five places I want to go to.

  1. Cape Town, South Africa
  2. Germany during Oktoberfest
  3. Chichen Itza, Mexico
  4. Chiang Mai, Thailand
  5. Hong Kong

So there it is. I’m also hoping to get to Tokyo, but since i’m going with a friend who books last minute, that may or may not be booked as an award flight and is definitely not something I can plan on this early in the year.

Let me know what’s on your list and what you think of my list in the comments below.
