Lonely Planet reveal the Top 10 must-seeplaces in Asia for 2017 - but can you guess what's number 1?


It is, of course, the world's largest andmost-populous continent.


So deciding which parts of Asia to see canbe a difficult quest for today's international traveller.


Fortunately, the experts at Lonely Planethave whittled-down the options for us with their 2017 Best in Asia list – anagenda-setting collection of the area’s 10 best destinations to visit in theyear ahead.


Released this week, they've named Gansu innorth-central China as the ultimate destination point, in part because it's'blissfully well-connected' yet 'underrated and relatively crowd-free'.

The urban scene South of Tokyo, Japan, issecond place while Northern Kerala, India, comes in at number three.



'Asia is such a vast and diverse continentfor anyone dreaming of an escape,' Lonely Planet’s Asia-Pacific MediaSpokesperson, Chris Zeiher, says. 'Our experts have combed through thousands ofrecommendations to pick the best destinations to visit over the next 12months.'

孤独星球亚洲媒体发言人Chris Zeiher,说:“对于任何梦想远离喧嚣的人来说,亚洲都是如此广袤和丰富。我们的专家梳理了上千份的推荐,挑选出未来12个月最好的旅游目的地”。

'From Astana in Kazakhstan, to Xi’an inChina,' he adds. 'This is a line-up to inspire a multitude of travellers –whether they’re based in Asia, or maybe they’ve already visited some of theregion’s heavy-hitting destinations.'


The complete list is:




Top spot: Gansu in north-central China is aland of stunning snow-capped mountains, big skies and Silk Road history


Blissfully well-connected thanks to high-speedrail services and upgraded highways, and a new metro will ease traffic inprovincial capital, Lanzhou, when it opens this year.


Gansu’s crown jewel and world-classBuddhist art site, the Mogao Grottoes, received a huge upgrade in 2015, but –just like the entire region – remains underrated and relatively crowd-free.


2. South of Tokyo, Japan



Vibrant: Yokohama,  the country's second largest metropolis, isjust a 20-minute train journey from the capital, Tokyo


With Japan currently on many travellers’bucket lists, two cities south of Tokyo are well worth making time for.


Yokohama is just a 20-minute train journeyfrom the capital and packs considerable appeal with its bayside location,eclectic architecture, microbreweries and tasty cuisine.


Less than an hour from Tokyo, classyseaside town Kamakura is known for its surfing scene, but also offers atempting selection of relaxed cafes and restaurants.


3. Northern Kerala, India+1



Life's a beach! The beaches around Kannur,Thottada and Bekal are pristine and must be experienced while they remain so


Northern Kerala has long been theunderrated half of the state, concealing its backwater charms and emergingslowly like a butterfly from a chrysalis.


2017 marks India’s 70th year ofindependence and the opening of a new international airport in Kannur –Kerala’s largest – which will provide an easy introduction to the north.


The beaches around Kannur, Thottada andBekal are pristine.


4. Keong Saik Road, Singapore



Hipster: Fabulous rooftop views andsuper-slick cocktail bars like Potato Head (pictured) draw a trendy crowd here


Once a crime-riddled red-light district,Keong Saik Road has reinvented itself to become the poster-child for hip ‘NewSingapore’.


Behind the beautiful colonial and art-decobuildings you’ll discover the best of Singapore’s famed dining scene: fabulousrooftop views and super-slick cocktail bars draw a trendy crowd.


And then you can sleep it all off in aboutique hotel room.


5. Astana, Kazakhstan



Modern: A mirage of glass and steel with astained-glass pyramid, golden skyscrapers and the world’s largest marquee


From mid-June to mid-September 2017, Astanawill host the World Expo on the subject of sustainable energy. And as of 2017,citizens of 45 countries may visit Kazakhstan without a visa for up to 30 days.


Furthermore, the introduction of LTR (lightrail transit) and improvements to the existing bus network are making a visitto this modern, cosmopolitan city even easier.


6. Takayama, Japan



New: Since the 17th century, Takayamahasn't changed - but it's slowly starting to transform into a more modern mecca


The time to treasure Takayama is now.


Secluded in the mountainous Hida region ofcentral Japan, Takayama is a place where Japanese history and traditionflourish in the 21st century.


The Hida region has come into the spotlightanew following the success of the 2016 blockbuster film Your Name (Kimi no NaWa) – history's highest grossing anime feature – as devoted fans have made theHida region a pilgrimage destination for location spotting.


7. Xi’an, China



World-famous: Clay statues of Chinese Qindynasty soldiers, which attract thousands of peopel to the site every year


Xi’an’s diverse heritage is supreme…andthen there’s the biggie: the Army of Terracotta Warriors, celebrating 30 yearsas a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017.


Xi’an is vast, but a relaxed tempo reigns andrecent openings have boosted an already superb accommodation market; throw in acrop of new bars and cafes plus the 72-hour visa-free policy.


There’s never been a better time to visit.


8. Sri Lanka’s Hill Country



Wanderlust: Take a scenic train to SriLanka's idyllic Hill Country for a temperate escape from the nation's humidcoasts


Sri Lanka may be 'so hot right now', butLonely Planet recommends a different experience.


Try getting ahead of (and away from) thepack by taking a scenic train to Sri Lanka's idyllic Hill Country for awonderfully temperate escape from the nation's humid coasts.


This tropical isle is endowed with amountainous interior that is every bit as scenic as the coast, blessed bypleasantly cool temperatures that rarely tip 21oC.


9. Melaka City, Malaysia



Popular: The awarding of Unesco WorldHeritage status to Melaka's historic core in 2008 put it firmly on SoutheastAsia's map


Boat rides along the meandering MelakaRiver are popular and soon water taxis will connect Melaka Sentral bus stationwith downtown.


Check out the waterfront gallery spaceZheng He Duo Yun Xuan or rummage for souvenirs at the Trash & Treasure fleamarket.


Then head to the Shore Shopping Gallery,where the rooftop Sky Tower provides panoramic views across this alluringmetropolis.


10. Raja Ampat, Indonesia



Glorious: Packed with white-sand beaches,lush jungle and unusual mushroom-shaped islets, Raja Ampat is a hotspot


'Raja' means ‘king’ and this grand title iseasily justified: those in the know describe this sprinkling of exoticIndonesian islands as one of the most divine archipelagos in.


Packed with white-sand beaches, lush jungleand unusual mushroom-shaped islets, Raja Ampat is a biological hotspot.


Home to some of the richest, most diversecoral reefs on the planet – over 200 diving spots are still pristine – andthis, paired with a growing ecotourism offering, means Raja Ampat will no doubtremain king of the islands.

I would certainly rather go to east Asiathan anywhere in western Europe at this point in time. Sad because Europe usedto be great.



Pingero, Philadelphia, United States, 1week ago

The people of Asia are amazing. So happyand kind. Unlike Europe where they can be rigid and a bit indifferent.


Burnt, Land of oz, United States, 1 weekago

They think the same of us unfortunately


smookie, Los Angeles, United States, 1 weekago

I love Japan. The people are amazing, thecities are incredibly fun and hectic (in a really good way) and the quietcountryside and beaches are breathtaking. Festivals for everything. The NebutaMatsuri Festival is my favorite! This is my favorite place on the planet aftermy own home country.


Lee00ender, Seattle, United States, 1 weekago

I love the auto toilets at Narita airport.



Huskies_n_Winter, Syracuse, United StatesMinor Outlying Islands, 1 week ago

Unless you are just passing through on yourway to Singapore or KL, Melaka is an arm pit. I've been traveling from JakartaIndonesia to the Great Wall just North of Beijing for almost 30 years now andthat is one of the last cities I would ever recommend visiting.

Agree. This list is only so so right.There's much more to Asia than this.


Lady Penelope, Gold Coast, Australia, 1week ago

As is much of Malaysia, quite dirty and notoverly welcoming of the Western tourist.



A Gentleman Poster, Kansas, United States,1 week ago

Sorry, but any list without Siem Reap,Cambodia and its' magnificent series of temples, including the incredibleAngkor Wat, is not to be taken seriously.


adomski, edinburgh, United Kingdom, 1 weekago

Agreed and I'd add cambodias 1000 islands

Very nice photographs, thanks for sharingthis.


honisty2, Xinhua, China, 1 week ago

I have been to Gansu. I have to tell youthat because it's quite high up, Gansu is really really cold in the winter andearly spring and given that the economy there is mostly mining, extremelyheavily polluted by the waste products left from that. Also, because it is socold for much of the year, they burn huge amounts of coal to stay warm, so theair quality is rotten.


SAMSUNG GALAXY S8, A beautiful place inManila, Philippines, 1 week ago

Gansu is amazing, but hard to reach.


Master John, uSA, United States, 1 week ago

Beautiful pictures. Our planet is trulybeautiful.


Something_Fishy, Bkk, Thailand, 1 week ago

I have been to Astana. Nothing really worthgoing for.


OstrogothRome, Newport, United Kingdom, 1week ago

And the bottom five are, No, 997,836,Yodok, N Korea, No, 997,837, Aleppo., Syria, No. 997,838, Kabul, Afghanistan,No,.997,639, the 1963 concrete public toilet block, 4 miles NE of Beijingcentre, No, 997,640, Bethnal Green, London, UK (Note to travel writer.....thismight seem like Asia but it isn't, really).







honisty2, Xinhua, China, 1 week ago

Regarding #7 Xi'an, they mention that youcan avail yourself of a 72-hour visa free visit. Well, yes, you can, but youcan't fly into China and back home three days later. You must be in transit toa third country destination, i.e your destination must be different than yourorigin. So you can't do this on UK-China and China-UK flights. Also, you maynot leave the Xi'an administrative region, which means that the city and theTerracotta Army are about all you may see (they won't let you purchase a trainticket from the station without a Chinese visa in your passport)


Not from this planet, far far away, HeardIsland And McDonald Islands, 1 week ago
