Opinion: Top Ten World Cities To Visit In 2018? Nah! PDF Print E-mail

Travel website Lonely Planet chose the following as their recommended best to be on your travel bucket list for the upcoming year. They are, in rank order: Seville, Spain, Detroit, USA, Canberra, Australia, Hamburg, Germany, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Antwerp, Belgium, Matera, Italy, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Guanajuato, Mexico and Oslo, Norway.

We heartily disagree with the choices. Putting poverty-stricken Detroit up there as #2 is ridiculous, and devastated San Juan as #7 is just tragic, unless pity was the major choice in the selection. Also, several of the cities listed are obscure small towns most senior travelers have never heard of.

Your travel4seniors.com editor respectfully offers an alternate list, not necessarily in rank order: New York, London, Las Vegas, Paris, Venice, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Barcelona, Singapore and Tokyo.
