Top 10 countries to visit in 2013 part 2

Top 10 countries to visit in 2013 part 2

Today we’ll continue our top 10 countries to visit in 2013 list, with a few more contenders for your time and money.

Ecuador

This country is quite a well-known tourist destination for those who are a bit adventurous and who like warm climates. However, in 2013 the country’s railway network is scheduled to go through a radical revamp, with new lines planned to link the increasingly cosmopolitan Quito to the coastal port of Guayaquil. Trains will also now connect the famous 5900m-high Cotopaxi and the Nariz del Diablo, thus claiming the steepest stretch of railway title in the western world. Considering that this is yet to come to pass it is unknown if the gamble will pay off in the end, but it wouldn’t hurt to be able to say that you were amongst the first to go on the track.

Slovakia

We’re taking a jump into Europe for this one. Slovakia has been a democratic country for about two decades and in this time it has managed to turn itself into one of the Europe’s fastest-growing economies, joined the EU and is one very well-known destination for bargain ski packages and stag weekends. The tourism industry has been working on something of an image overhaul in recent years, to distance the current Slovakia from that reputation, and it’s been successful, make no mistake about it, 2013 will be a great year for a trip to Slovakia.

Solomon Islands

The Solomon Islands are the type of destination that one goes to when one has had enough of mass-marketing package trips or luxury retreats and wants to try something a bit rawer. This is the destination to go to for eco-resorts, village homestays but also some of the best scuba diving on the planet. Now you might’ve heard in the past of this destination as being not exactly safe to travelers, because of limited flights, a lack of infrastructure and some exotic strains of malaria, however you’ll be glad to know that traveling there today is much safer and even the mosquitoes are less threatening.
