Lonely Planet spokesman Tom Hall commented: 'This year’s picks for Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2011reflect the passion for discovery that our readers have. It’s no surprise then that we’ve singled out a little-known but beautiful and rewarding corner of the UK as a must-see next year. The Shetland Islands have a huge amount to offer wildlife-watchers, outdoor enthusiasts and culture buffs.'
Other parts of the UK also made the cut. London joins Edinburgh as one of the world’s artistic hot-spots. The book also notes that vampire-spotting is one of the hot new trends for 2011, with Whitby, North Yorkshire a prime pilgrimage point for Dracula fans.
Highlights of Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2011 include:
Chapters covering Lonely Planet’s top country, city and region picks for 2011, ranked in order for the first time and voted for by a panel of expers including Lonely Planet co-founder Tony Wheeler. The winners? Albania, Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula and New York City.
17 top travel lists bringing the best travel experiences and the key trends for 2011 including super-luxe travel, best value destinations and the best places for dance fever.
