8 Underrated Travel Destinations That Will Be Popular in 2024


There are white-sand beaches and lush tropical jungles to explore. And as the home to the Belize Barrier Reef, snorkeling and diving enthusiasts will find plenty to do.

Bordeaux, France

Bordeaux, a quaint provincial town, is home to some of the finest wines in the world. I recommend embarking on the Urban Wine Trail, which has some of the best tasting bars.


Kenya is already a popular destination for African safaris. But travelers are now turning their eyes to its southern neighbor, Tanzania.


The Mekong River flows through the scenic landscapes, and Luang Prabang, a World Heritage Site, is full of golden-roofed temples.


In the winter, you can see the northern lights — usually with much smaller crowds — or go cross-country skiing. Outdoor saunas are also popular.

Badlands, North Dakota

The park offers beautiful Badlands views without as many crowds as South Dakota. And there are plenty of bison, prairie dogs, and wild horses to see.

Paros, Greece

The lack of an international airport tends to keep it that way, but a gentle ebb of chic new hotels is attracting more tourists.

Channel Islands National Park, California

Travelers can spy whales, dolphins, sea lions, and sea otters in the waters below. There are also plenty of rare flora and fauna species on the islands themselves.
