Lonely Planet, the world's largest travel guide publisher, recently released its annual report of the best worldwide destinations in 2018.
The list features "Top 10 countries", with Chile topping the list; "Top 10 cities", where Seville in Spain grabbed first place; "Top 10 regions", with Belfast and the Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland taking the top spot, and "Top 10 best value places", with pole position occupied by Tallinn in Estonia. All of the listed destinations are selected by Lonely Planet's globe-trotting team based on factors like safety, convenience, novelty and whether the place can offer visitors a unique experience.
Also worthy of interest is China's Hunan province being on the list of best value destinations, for its abundance of natural and historical treasures like Zhangjiajie and Fenghuang ancient town.
Moreover, the province's modern wonders like its newly-opened glass bridge, longest in the world, are also worth a try. Just as Lonely Planet put it, China is a country full of mystery and adventure. "Twenty-first century China is here to stay," the guide said, "so hop on board a bullet train and explore this modern Middle Kingdom."
