Travel has been such a buzzword amongst the young and old ones alike. It’s an understatement to say that it’s just a trend, it’s a rising necessity. More people invest in experiences, which is why the airport is always packed. Who can blame them?

Despite the airports being crowded, your destination need not be the same. Here are the top 2018 emerging destinations around the world you should visit before they’re flocked by travelers.

There’s the Gros Morne National Park, Cape Spear, Codroy Valley, and Deadman’s Bay Provincial Park.

The Philippines has been known for its beaches in Boracay, Palawan, Cebu, Bohol, to name a few, but we think the country’s capital also deserves the limelight. People can explore the walled city of Intramuros and all the Spanish era churches, take a day trip to Tagaytay, or explore the commercial area of Bonifacio Global City.
