Top 10 cool destinations for 2008

Photo from Hainan Island, ChinaThis year, intrepid travelers are finding new, and newly cool old, destinations to jet off to. Luxury travel mag share's their Top 10 list - The 2008 It List.

Ranging from distinctly off-beat to old standby, their list is:

  1. Mozambique, Africa
  2. St. Lucia
  3. Montenegro
  4. Ecuador
  5. Sicily
  6. San Diego
  7. Hainan island, China
  8. Oman
  9. Puerto Escondido and the Oaxacan Coast
  10. Paris



Personally, I'm loving the idea of Sicily (Italian food!...), Montenegro, and Oaxaca. Not so sure about Mozambique though, I'm pretty sure it's a rip-off in the making. The country does have some things going for it, "1,500 miles of gorgeous Indian Ocean coastline and archipelagos that make for superb diving and luscious beaches; Maputo, a vibrant and safe capital with an exciting Afro jazz scene and a nightlife renaissance; and national parks that are slowly restoring the wildlife."

Where would you go in 2008, share your own Top 10 list below.
