Top Destinations for Travelers in 2013

That question is being answered in articles across the web. Most analysts are looking for higher airline fees and cheaper gasoline. 

But where will travelers be going? Each expert has a very different answer to that question!

My father has guessed Miami, Dubai, Peru, India, and Ireland. To that list, Jim Byers, travel editor of the Toronto Star has added The Philippines, Toronto, New Orleans, Florida, Spain, Portugal and Greece to the list. To read their reasons for their picks, click here.
I looked at the 2013-only events that would be shaping travel this year, and picked Derry/Londonderry (in Northern Ireland), Marseilles, Dallas, Washington, DC, Botswana, India, Taiwan, Dubai, Peru, The Hawaiian Islands, and Amsterdam. To read my complete list, and see the spectacular photos that accompany it, please click here.

National Geographic Adventure geared its list to travelers who want to go well off the beaten track. Its suggestions range from the Crimea to the Great Bear Rainforest. In all, they choose 20 for the list, so I won't list them all here, but here's a link to the entire slideshow.

And I'll give a hat tip to Lonely Planet, which printed not one, but three compelling lists, dividing the topic by top countries for 2013 (Sri Lanka, Montenegro, South Korea, Ecuador, Slovakia, Solomon Islands, Iceland, Turkey, Dominican Republic, Madagascar), top cities and top regions.

Which expert is right? All of us!
