Singapore is on the top of Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2015 list this year, followed by Namibia and Lithuania.
With its unique style of cuisine and culture, Lonely Planet selected this Southeast Asia place as it offers a getaway from urban landscape, and provides numerous opportunities to explore the island. In addition, Singapore will celebrate 50 years of independence in 2015, so we can expect some grand celebrations.
The list used criteria such as if there was a special event next year, or because the writers believed that the destination will soon become a huge hit. Smaller countries were given a fair opportunity as recent developments were considered, meaning that the more famous travel destinations won’t be able to dominate. Which is fair.
