The Cook Islands comprise 15 islands scattered over a vast area. Rarotonga, the largest island is known for its rugged mountains.

Among the other countries that have made it to the top five are Norway, Mauritius, Belize (a Caribbean country on the northeastern coast of Central America) and Slovenia.

The travel guide publisher also released lists of the top 10 cities and top 10 regions. The top three cities for 2022 are Auckland, New Zealand; Taipei, Taiwan; and Freiburg in Germany.

The top three regions include Iceland’s Westfjords (a large peninsula), the US state of West Virginia and Xishuangbanna, a Chinese autonomous prefecture in Yunnan province.

“As always, Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel delivers new takes on popular destinations such as Iceland, Norway, Slovenia and Dublin, Ireland, and unearths some of the gems on our doorstep like the Kent Downs Heritage Coast and arguably Germany’s most sustainable city, Freiburg,” Tom Hall, VP of Experience, was quoted as saying by Independent.
