Christmas vacation is quickly approaching; are you indecisive of where to go, looking for a secure location to celebrate with your family, or just feeling like exploring somewhere new? Worry no more, Worldpaddy has you covered for the most secure and breathtaking travel destinations. Just glance below for the most beautiful countries in the world to visit this 2022.
1. Yucatán, Mexico
Yucatán’s capital city, Mérida, has become one of Mexico’s most well-liked cities because of its vibrant restaurant scene, packed calendar of cultural events, and laid-back tropical atmosphere. But more and more tourists are venturing outside the city to discover the state’s pristine nature reserves, historic Maya sites, and vast haciendas, many of which have been turned into hotels. El Cuyo, a peaceful beach town that was once a closely-kept secret among windsurfers, is one of the places that are luring tourists to Yucatán. Additionally, tourists can now savor fine Mexican cuisine at the El Chile Gordo restaurant and boho-chic accommodations at the brand-new Casa Mate.

2. Quebec, Canada
It might finally be time to start organizing that trip to the Great White North, starting with the province of Quebec, after more than a year of stringent pandemic restrictions. Every season offers something fresh to discover, from the charming, French-influenced cities of Montreal and Quebec City to the area’s snow-capped mountains. Club Med Quebec Charlevoix, the country’s first Club Med mountain resort, opened its doors in December 2021 and offers all-inclusive ski getaways just a short flight from several major U.S. cities. In October, Regent Seven Seas Cruises is offering a fall foliage-filled voyage from New York to Montreal. Le Capitole Hotel in Quebec City and Humaniti Hotel Montreal are the best choices for accommodations in the major cities, regardless of the season you visit. [Elizabeth Rhodes]
3. Wales, United Kingdom
The Wales Coastal Path will mark its tenth anniversary in 2022 and is the only trail in the world to traverse an entire nation’s coastline. Although it would take three months to traverse its 870 miles on foot, the most breathtaking stretches can be seen in just one trip—and in style. With only 1,600 residents, St David’s in Pembrokeshire, west Wales, is the country’s smallest city. It is home to a medieval cathedral, a five-star hotel inside Roch Castle, a number of top-notch pubs, and the upscale St David’s Gin & Kitchen. Try the St. David’s Head loop for a hiking path that offers unrivaled coastal views and passes neolithic tombs and hillforts. [Jamie Carter]
4. Udaipur, India
India reopened to travelers who had been immunized on November 15, 2021, following a very difficult 20-month closure. Make sure Udaipur is on the itinerary for anyone traveling to South Asia in the coming year, whether it be to visit the Goan beaches or the Taj Mahal in Agra. Even referred to as the “Venice of the East,” the city of lakes in southern Rajasthan is regarded as the most romantic place in India, but it’s not just for honeymooners. The lively Hathi Pol bazaar and Shilpgram, an artisanal community outside of the city where a festival is scheduled to return on January 22, are nearby. Udaipur is a city where you can completely immerse in Rajasthani culture, from the calm of Lake Pichola, the man-made lake built in the 14th century. The first Raffles hotel in India, which debuted in October, is now located in Udaipur, a center of Indian luxury. One of Udaipur’s extravagant hotels, this private island hotel on Udai Sagar Lake can only be reached by boat, is only reachable by boat. With 101 opulent suites, the Rasoi cooking school, and the lakeside open-air restaurant Belvedere Point, the intended destination hotel for the Raffles portfolio was to include all the trademarks of the brand (think: bars, both Long and Writers).

5. St. Pete/Clearwater, Florida
There is more to this destination than just white sand, clear waters, and 361 days of sunshine each year. St. Petersburg and the nearby city of Clearwater consistently rank among the best beach destinations in the United States and even the world. There are more than 30 museums and galleries in St. Pete/Clearwater, including the largest collection of Salvador Dali’s works outside of Spain and works by well-known artists like Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso. With its trail of more than 35 locally owned craft breweries, one could argue that St. Pete/Clearwater has mastered the art of brewing the ideal beer. Complete your experience with a digital passport that tracks your beer sampling progress along the region affectionately dubbed the “Gulp Coast.” You can travel there at any time thanks to the year-round offerings, but in June 2022, celebrate the 20th anniversary of St. Pete Pride, the largest Pride celebration in Florida, which will feature activities for everyone from friends and families to couples and lone travelers.

The Emerald City may be among the best places that offer both an urban and a natural getaway in one location. With top-notch hotels (such as the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle and Thompson Seattle), regionally focused fine dining, and a wealth of cultural attractions, the city center is of the highest caliber. Then, some of the most breathtaking outdoor recreation is only a short drive from all of that. The recently opened Lotte Hotel Seattle adds to the city’s allure. The 189-room tower will enhance the area with its elegant design and first-rate service. The hotel’s 18th-floor restaurant, Charlotte, offers a creative menu that is sure to become a classic dining experience. One of the city’s most Instagrammable locations, the historic Fairmont Olympic Hotel recently finished a $25 million historic restoration of its public areas. Additionally, a hotly anticipated new culinary showpiece will make its debut soon. Don’t skip a meal at Autumn, the new restaurant from renowned pasta chef Brian Clevenger, before you depart Seattle.

8. France Paris
The capital of France, Paris, is a significant European city and a hub for culture, gastronomy, fashion, and art. Wide boulevards and the Seine River crisscross the city’s 19th-century urban landscape. The city is renowned for its cafe culture and designer boutiques along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, in addition to such landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral, built in the 12th century.
Dubai, an emirate and city in the United Arab Emirates, is well-known for its affluent shopping, cutting-edge buildings, and vibrant nightlife. The skyline is dominated by the 830m-tall Burj Khalifa tower. Dubai Fountain, which has jets and lights choreographed to music, is located at its base. Atlantis, The Palm is a resort with aquatic and marine animal parks that is situated on man-made islands nearby. This is a popular shopping and tourist destination, and it’s a safe and lovely place to visit.
