    ST. VINCENT: ONE Od THE TOP 13 HOTTEST TRAVEL SPOTS FOR 2013

    Top 13 Hottest Travel Spots for 2013

    Hideaways.com has announced its picks of top vacation destinations and trends for the savvy and sophisticated traveler in 2013

    23 January 2013


    Most are true hideaways, though a few are rebirths of popular destinations. Included are recommendations for the best boutique hotels and resorts or cruises.

    Mike Thiel, Founder and President of Hideaways International™ Inc. said: "We consulted our travel crystal ball to find places and vacation 'styles' on the verge of discovery, or prime for rediscovery, in 2013.

    "Our 'Top 13 Hottest Spots for 2013' are unique, not heavily touristy, and away from the mainstream. And each celebrates those special things, like pristine beauty, that set them apart from every other place or experience."

    Hideaways.com's Top 13 Hottest Spots for 2013:

    The Philippines

    Here, you'll find the kind of unspoiled beaches and world-class diving you dream of, along with unexpected delights like paddle boating to Cambuhat Oyster Farm. Recommended hideaway: Eskaya Beach Resort.

    The Maldives

    This idyllic island nation has white sandy beaches, turquoise lagoons, and coral reefs plus surprises like exotic, easy-going, and exciting Malé, the world's smallest capital city. Recommended hideaway: Taj Exotica Resort & Spa.

    Riviera Nayarit, Mexico

    With its gorgeous Pacific coastline and beaches, this region north of Puerto Vallarta now has a collection of brand-new luxe hotels, residential areas, and golf courses. Recommended hideaway: Hotel Cinco.

    The Basilicata Region, Italy

    Enjoy stunning "hill town" beauty along with plenty of elbow room and cave dwellings, castles, and coastlines in this not-yet-prime-time region of southern Italy. Recommended hideaway: Palazzo Margherita.

    St. Vincent

    Part of the string of islands and cays that includes the Grenadines, St. Vincent celebrates classic Caribbean heritage with its sleepy villages and often empty, pristine beaches . . . and now it has its first luxury resort. Recommended hideaway: Buccament Bay Resort.

    River Cruising in Portugal

    Slow way down and experience the best, and often least-touristy parts, of Portugal's bucolic Douro River in 2013, thanks to more river cruising options with brand-new ships sporting all the bells and whistles. Recommended cruise lines: AmaWaterways and Uniworld.

    Stateside Vacation Rentals

    Renting a vacation home is enjoying a surge in popularity for its space, privacy, personality, and affordability, especially stateside. Recommended hideaways: Villa rentals in popular places like the Outer Banks, Florida Keys, Colorado, San Diego, New York, and Chicago.

    Expedition Cruising in New Zealand

    This adventurous style of cruising allows you to travel like a pampered insider with exciting and edifying itineraries-perfect for a multi-faceted destination like New Zealand. Recommended cruise line: Lindblad Expeditions.

    Myanmar

    In transitioning from communism to democracy, this previously closed country now has a new openness and plenty of travel treasures to discover, like impressive temples, lively antique markets, and the national noodle dish called monhinga. Recommended hideaway: The Governor's Residence.

    Cartagena, Colombia

    After suffering from a bum rap (think drug cartels), Colombia has turned itself around, and its urban seaport on the northern Caribbean coast is safe and inviting, with an historic yet hip Old Town and proximity to white-sand beaches. Recommended hideaway: Hotel Quadrifolio.

    Ireland

    Touring this fabled land's 40 shades of green is a "must" this year with The Gathering Ireland 2013, a series of events and festivals celebrating Irish history and culture. Recommended hideaways: Ballynahinch Castle, and any number of Ireland's elegant country-house estate hotels.

    Oahu, Hawaii

    With better and cheaper airfare, and more inter-island transportation options, it's easier to get to and around Hawaii. Oahu is the hottest island for its beauty, activities, and recent updates. Recommended hideaways: Ko Olina Beach Villas Resort and The Kahala Hotel & Resort.

    St. Barts

    This eight-square-mile island with 17 pristine beaches offers a bit of European-flavored elegance in the Caribbean. Once a favored playground for the international glitterati, it has focused more on its natural beauty since the global recession. Recommended hideaways: Hotel Le Toiny and Le Sereno.

    And here's a little insight into why each destination made the list.

    "Let's face it, a 'hot' destination is only hot if you discover it before the crowds," says Mike. "And each one of our hottest spots offers a special something worth experiencing this year. My best advice? Go now, before the rest of the world discovers our little secrets!"

    What a compilation! I want to visit all these places so much! But this year I decided to spend my vacation in a rather urbanized area. I was in NYC https://worldcams.tv/united-states/n...k/times-square for two weeks. I was my first time in the USA and it was really great.
