Make sure your passport is valid (and your bank account is healthy) because Lonely Planet just revealed its annual list of the best travel destinations to visit in the year ahead, Fortune reported.

This isn’t just a matter of the 10 best places, but rather Lonely Planet has broken it down into four categories (countries, cities, regions and best value places), counting down what the famed travel guide book publisher has determined to be the 10 best places in each category to visit within the following year.

Lonely Planet starts the nominations process within its own team of editors, researchers, locals, and influencers. Many of the destinations sprout from trends in other industries, such as design and architecture (a motivating factor for Copenhagen’s top spot, not to mention the return of Noma, with numerous accolades praising it as one of the world’s best restaurants) or tech (Shēnzhèn is described as the “Silicon Valley of China”. Aside from the best travel destinations countdown, Lonely Planet also plans ahead with lists for new openings the following year, the best places to stay, the best culinary experiences, and attractions for families.
