Frommer’s favorites
1. Sanibel Island: “Idyllic haven of white-sand beaches …excellent restaurants, good shopping” and the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
2. The Island of Bali, in Indonesia: “Inhabited by some of the most gracious people on Earth, who invite you to witness their religious processions, wedding ceremonies and joyous funerals.”
3. Paris: “I can never get enough of this glorious capital, whose beauty has been so well-captured in Woody Allen’s recent ‘Midnight in Paris’ film.”
?4. St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands: “One of the Caribbean’s less developed islands (90 percent of it is a national park).”
5. Cairo, Egypt: Sites such as the Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum with its relics of Tut, the Nile and its river trips to Upper Egypt “come as close to being indispensable destinations as any I know.”
6. Bonaire, southern Caribbean: A “scuba diving capital” and “a small, laid-back and lightly populated island.”
7. Yachats, Oregon coast: “A tiny seaside town, and yet with several gourmet restaurants.”
8. Chiang Rai, Thailand: “The Hill Tribes, living much as people did during the Stone Age, are fascinating.”
9. New York City’s Greenwich Village (and its off-Broadway theaters): “Many of the most important new trends and causes in America …got their first hearing in these small theaters.”
10. Kenya: “You are guaranteed to see tens of thousands of animals — wildebeest, giraffes, lions, elephants, rhinoceros and more.”
