1. The 10 Best Places to Travel in 2019: Tokyo, Japan
I don’t know about you guys but I really do want to visit Japan in 2019. Tokyo is hosting the Summer Olympics in 2020. Yes, Japan is expecting some 60 million people to visit the country in 2019-2020. While Japan is preparing for us to arrive there, 2019 also looks very promising time to travel to the Land of the Rising Sun. Japan’s first Ace Hotel will also open this year. And if you love Cherry Blossoms and want to visit Tokyo to see them. You should get there between March 24- March 31. If you want to see Forecast Flowering be there by March 24 and for the Forecast Full Bloom on March 31. Tokyo was named the world’s top city for the third year in a row, it also got the status as the most Michelin-starred city in the world, and it mixes the ultramodern, neon-lit skyscrapers, tranquil temples, and shrines. Unimaginable street style and city life you will get to experience there.

If you love History and the Royals, then Egypt is just the place you need to travel in 2019. The parts of the Grand Egyptian Museum will open in 2019 and the rest in 2020. Only the news of it is making people crazy about it, people are booking all sorts of places to enjoy there visit. There are so many waitlists for city hotels and boat trips along the Nile. After facing some worst years, Egypt seems to back on the map again. It had been hoped that tourism will only grow rapidly once Giza’s $1.1 billion Grand Egyptian Museum makes its long-awaited debut in 2020. The $1 billion, sleek, marble temple to the country’s antiquities would have been revealing, along with the wealth of other national treasures. Mostly it will represent King Tutankhamun’s entire burial collection, more than 5,000 pieces are going to display to the public in its exact replica of the tomb. This means tourists will be able to see almost everything, starting with bejeweled sandals to embroidered tunics and the Boy King’s death mask, just as Howard Carter made his milestone discovery in 1922. However, while everyone is waiting patiently for all this, elsewhere in the country the, Nile cruise liner Sanctuary Retreats has just launched their weekly sailings of its boutique wooden boats, so you can ride on them while gazing at Nubian sandstone cliffs and also the teeming ancient tombs and temples of Luxor. Another big news is the much-awaited and much-talked, St Regis will open in March 2019. It will be situated right on the river to increase Cairo’s dusty hotel scene with a much-needed dosage of luxe and glamour. This place will have, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, which will open onto terraces that offer the most mesmerizing views of Cairo’s pedestrian-friendly sceneries.

The city will celebrate this momentous joyful event with music concerts and performances, museum exhibits, and even bike tours, which will run the length of the original wall to give people a new experience. Well, these events will last almost throughout the year-long, but in my opinion, November will the most significant time to visit Berlin in 2019.
