Ultimate places to visit in 2018

National Geographic Traveler bucket list for 2018.
They've cited the essential journeys we should be making, next year, ranging from the Albanian coast to Chile’s capital city, Santiago, and the stunning landscape of Oahu, Hawaii. Accompanied by glorious images taken by some of the industry's best photographers, it's guaranteed to whet your appetite for exploration. 

The Albanian coast: 'Sunken aqueducts, shipwrecks, and rarely visited caves are a few of the relatively untouched treasures awaiting divers in Albania,' National Geographic Traveler says. Especially off the southern coast

Jordan Trail: This is a new 400-mile hiking path that takes in forests, canyons, deserts, and the shores of the Red Sea. Pictured is the lost city of Petra

Seoraksan, South Korea, is a national park (pictured) that 'boasts breathtaking mountainous terrain', with one peak reaching 5,600ft

 Madagascar: 'The world’s fourth-largest island is the undisputed land of the lemurs,' it observes. 'The biodiversity hotspot is home to about 100 species'

Phnom Penh, Cambodia: 'Oscar buzz for Angelina Jolie’s Cambodian genocide drama First They Killed My Father is boosting interest in the Kingdom’s buzzing capital city,' the Nat Geo experts say. They pick out cultural treasures such as the Royal Palace compound and the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, where visitors can learn about the brutal Khmer Rouge regime

Locals call it 'the mistake by the lake', but Cleveland, Ohio, rocks as far as the magazine is concerned thanks to eight theaters on Playhouse Square, indie-music venue Beachland Ballroom and meat-loving restaurants like the Black Pig and the Plum

Sydney, Australia, makes the list in part thanks to the $273million upgrade of its iconic Opera House

Mexican state of Oaxaca: Tourists are welcome more than ever in the color-rich state, where they can find 'dazzlingly vibrant wool rugs and other handmade textiles dyed using fruits, insects and other natural colorants'

Santiago, Chile, is on Nat Geo's list in part thanks to its vibrant street art scene. Here, it says 'bare walls are blank canvases for murals'

Ruaha National Park, Tanzania, 'is home to about one-tenth of the world’s endangered African lions' and here 'sustainable tourism initiatives help visitors see the big cats and support wildlife preservation in and around the park'

Next year in Vienna, Austria, exhibitions will display the works of three leading members of the city's Secession art movement - Gustav Klimt, Koloman Moser and Otto Wagner, who all died in 1918. Pictured is Schonbrunn Palace

Malmo, Sweden, is a must-see because it's the 'United Nations of food' - home to 180 nationalities and over 450 restaurants

Friesland, The Netherlands: 'Live the Frisian life,' says National Geographic Traveler, 'mud walk on the Wadden Sea, buy tin-glazed pottery in Makkum, and eat cinnamon-laced sugar bread'

Tétouan, Morocco, is an art-lovers paradise. 'See contemporary works at the National Institute of Fine Arts, Tétouan Museum of Modern Art, and Green Olive Arts,' says the magazine

 San Antonio, Texas, is 300 next year, and to mark its birthday is hosting 550 arts and cultural events

Labrador, Canada, is home to Akami-Uapishku-KakKasuak-Mealy Mountains National Park Reserve, 'one of Canada’s newest and most remote national parks'
