There is a whole world of places to explore and it can be hard to pick just one. Earlier this year, the New York Times released a list of the top 52 places to visit in 2016. Here are a few of the top choices:

1) Mexico City: The capital of Mexico, Mexico City is becoming more of a draw for tourists for many reasons, most notably, its cuisine. Mexican chef Enqrique Olvera, the genius behind Pujol, has inspired an advent of savory restaurants, including Fonda Fina and Fonda Mayora. The city also draws history buffs who will enjoy exploring colonial architecture.

2) Bordeaux: This French region is already well-known for its stellar wine. Recently Bordeaux was named France’s second-favorite city (following Paris) for several reasons: its many UNESCO attractions, an exciting restaurant boom, and the renovation of the docklands.

3) Malta: This lovely island is a great way to explore the Mediterranean on the cheap and, fortunately for Americans, English is one of the two official languages. Malta offers several charming, ancient cities, including Valletta and Gozo.
