Top 5 Places to Travel To in 2023

The world is now open in a way that was not possible over the past few years. 

With everyone excited about travelling, countries hoping to lure tourists during the busy season, and ample deals on a private jet charter or commercial flights, you can likely book a dream vacation for 2023.

What you may not be sure about is where to go. Since you may not have gone on a vacation for a long time, your bucket list may need revisiting. Perhaps you stopped considering vacationing, as it never seemed safe or appealing over the past few years.

Now you can make up for lost time, spend wonderful moments with the people you love, and experience new places, cultures, and cuisines.

What better way to travel the world than to visit places that are expected to be bustling in the coming months. Below is a detailed rundown of the top five places to visit in 2023.

1. Cairo, Egypt

The Egyptians have spent the past decade constructing an incredible museum that is set to attract a lot of tourism in 2023. The Grand Egyptian Museum will open in the spring of 2023, and some incredible experiences will be had.

There is a lot of anticipation regarding this museum, as there will be a gigantic statue dedicated to Ramses II. At the same time, there will also be outdoor gardens, a plaza that visitors can enjoy, and other luxurious amenities.

If you enjoy culture and history but also want to have a lavish time on vacation, then you can book one of the river cruises you can take along the Nile River. Seeing this historic landmark in such a way will leave you breathless.

2. Havana, Cuba

Another place that is anticipating a lot more tourism in 2023 is Cuba. Thanks to a change made by the United States government, visiting Cuba will be a lot easier for Americans next year. Whether people are travelling as a group or they are going individually, they only require a special license that states they are “supporting the Cuban people” with their tourism.

What you must do if you are planning this trip is to have your itinerary planned out. Ensure that you have booked everything, including your return tickets, hotel stays, bus passes, or other activities you want to schedule. Having your itinerary laid out ensures that you can easily get approved for the visa if you are coming from the U.S.

Those travelling from Canada or other parts of the world can visit Cuba even more seamlessly.

3. Tangier, Morocco

A part of the world that does not always get the attention that it deserves, Morocco is emerging as a new tourist hotspot in 2022 and 2023. Many people do not realize that Morocco is so close to Spain that you can see the edges of either country when you are standing on the opposite coast on a clear day.

Tangier is a great place to visit in 2023, as you can check out the unique cultural landmarks, charming Moroccan hospitality, delicious food, and incredible weather. The prices are also much more affordable for tourists than those visiting the U.S. or Europe.

There are also some outstanding museums in Tangier, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art. If you are visiting with family, seeing the Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier may also be a fun time.

4. The UK

A destination that will make for a charming vacation in 2023 is the UK. Whether you are hoping to see the hustle and bustle of London, visit the working-class cultural hubs of Manchester or Liverpool, or go up to Scotland, you will find plenty of entertainment, beautiful scenery, and charming locals.

With the UK economy being less-than-ideal, visiting as a tourist is surprisingly appealing. The UK hopes to welcome more tourists in 2023 compared to 2022, which means they will be doing everything to ensure that prices for hotel stays and visiting cultural hotspots are more affordable than in past years.

5. Italy

A classic vacation destination that never gets old, Italy is beautiful, especially if you have never been. When planning your trip to Italy in 2023, you should keep in mind the country’s various regions. Seeing one part of Italy, such as Rome or Milan, does not mean you have a full taste of what the country offers. Cities such as Turin, Genoa, Florence, and Venice are equally appealing and charming.
