With the travel industry finally opening up once again, pent-up tourists from around the globe are looking to take that much-longed bucket-list vacation. But where to go?

Fortunately, National Geopgraphic is back with its “Best of the World” top destination list and 2022’s ‘must see’ locations are spread out over five categories: nature, adventure, culture, sustainability, and family.

The 25 top picks from National Geographic focus on how the way travel has changed post-pandemic, with a focus on green travel, multigenerational trips, outdoor activities, and wildlife vacations.

“In many ways, the pandemic provided a moment for travelers and communities around the world to reflect and regroup on how we explore the world,” says George Stone, executive editor of National Geographic Travel, said in a statement reported by CNN.

“With this year’s list, Nat Geo takes a look at what’s different, new, and inspiring — from the new Seine River bike trail in France to Chimanimani National Park, a new national park in Mozambique that signals the country’s environmental commitment.”
