These gloomy dark evenings have us seriously lusting after some sun and excitement. We need a holiday. Like, yesterday.

If you need some travel inspo, Lonely Planet has announced their top picks of the 10 cities to visit in 2018.

10. Oslo, Norway

“Expect fanfare and pageantry aplenty, along with a packed calendar of events – civic, culinary and cultural.”

9. Guanajanto, Mexico

“The small city of Guanajuato in the central highlands of Mexico punches above its weight when it comes to topical appeal.”

8. San Juan, Puerto Rico

“San Juan is a place where old meets new, where the city’s colonial past meshes comfortably with an emerging modern urbanity.”

7. Matera, Italy

“European Capital of Culture for 2019, so visit now before this underground destination emerges into the limelight.”

6. Antwerp, Belgium

“Flanders’ unofficial capital is laden with historic riches and home to world-class arts and design.”

5. Kaohsiung, Taiwan

“Kaohsiung is surging with possibilities: visit before the world gets wind of it.”

4. Hamburg, Germany

“Surprises abound: three-season riverfront beach bars, nightlife that’s among Europe’s best, and low-rise charms.”

3. Canberra, Australia

“National treasures are found round almost every corner and exciting new boutique precincts have emerged.”

2. Detroit, USA

“After decades of neglect, Detroit is rolling again. It’s like the whole place is caffeine-buzzed, freewheeling in ideas.”

And their top choice?

1. Seville, Spain

“Seville has bloomed into a city of bicycles and trams, keen to reinvigorate its artistic past.”

We know where we’ll be planning to sneak away to next year…
