As much as we enjoy taking long vacations by a beach where we can sit back and relax away from our non-stop lives, little city breaks can be just as much fun but in an entirely different way. City vacations can see you visit some of the coolest bars and restaurants, museums, sightsee and if you want, you can shop till you drop! A great choice for either a breakaway with your friends or your partner. Recommended by Lonely Planet, these are the best cities to visit in 2019.
One of our favorite cities, Copenhagen can be enjoyed in both the summer and winter. The sun reflects and brightens the colorful buildings and brings bars and restaurants out into the street creating an amazing fun atmosphere while the winter offers something different, the crisp air and Christmas spirit is something rather magical. Known as being the “capital of cool”, you can enjoy the huge street-food scene that is forever growing at Refshaleøen which is a former shipyard.
What people now call the “Silicon Valley” of China, Shēnzhèn is the country’s most innovative city. Attracting creative people from around the world, tech innovation is soaring and residents, as well as ex-pats, are quick to visit Hong Kong just across the border. With an exciting indie music scene, an art district and cool cafes, it is one of the most up and coming cities around the world.
Mexico City, Mexico
A city that is steeped in history, centuries-old buildings can be admired as well as the city’s artistic movements.
