Are These The 100 Most Interesting Places To Go and Things To Do In the Next 12 Months?

Sometimes when people travel, they have a set destination in mind. Other times they need a little inspiration – they may check out all those influencers on Instagram, or ask for advice and opinions on a travel themed Facebook like ours.
