New York Times names top travel destinations of 2012
If awarded the opportunity, traveling around the world is something that every person should take advantage of. Whether it's jetting to Dubai or vacationing in Paris, there are plenty of cities that are suited for the anyone.
And, if you're wondering where to go during your time away from the office, consider following The New York Times guide to some of the must-see destinations of 2012:
♦Panama City, Panama – Everyone knows that this Central American country is most famous for the Panama City Canal, but many people don't know much about this hidden gem beyond that. This city is teeming with interesting museums, delicious restaurants and beautiful monuments. Visitors can browse historic artifacts in the Panama Interoceanic Canal Museum or catch bass and snook in, you guessed it, the Canal.
♦Helsinki, Finland – Copenhagen, Denmark, and Stockholm, Sweden, used to be the top Nordic destinations, but that is no longer the case, according to the news source. Helsinki is one of the most fashion-forward and culinary gifted cities in the world. When tourists aren't visiting the $242 million Helsinki Music Center, they can dine on fresh produce at the city's famous Hakaniemi Market Square or at one of the capital's Michelin-rated restaurants such as Olo, Demo and Luomo.
♦London, England – There's no doubt about it: London is one city in Europe that is becoming more popular than ever. Of course, if you are there until August 12, you have the opportunity to see top-notch athletes going for gold at the Summer Olympics, but if you're traveling to this cultural paradise, there are still plenty of things to see and do. In addition to visiting Buckingham Palace, the House of Parliament and Big Ben, visitors can see a musical or opera performance, such as "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Les Miserables."
Wherever you go, it's important that you arrive at your destination relaxed and refreshed. Instead of dealing with the trouble of taking a cab or subway, book a luxury SUV or limousine with executive transportation service, Hermes Worldwide. Personal chauffeurs will ensure that you get you to your hotel or vacation home safely and comfortably.
