2018 has come and gone, and together the Traveller24 team has traversed thousands of kilometres in search of the next wanderlust destination to inspire our travelling readers.
We've been to almost every province in South Africa (Free State we see you) and travelled across the world to places like Tanzania, Mozambique, Turkey, England, Brazil, Botswana, Ghana, Zimbabwe and Mauritius.
Trails were hiked, rivers were canoed, oceans were swum, cities were explored - and enough flights to rack up the same kilometres as a pilot.
But what is there to see next year? You can take a trip on one of these nine new flight routes from SA or one of the fastest growing holiday destinations sure to make you a travel trendsetter.
Make sure to check if disaster-struck places are okay for a visit in 2019 but luckily Cape Town managed to beat Day Zero this year!
If you have some New Year resolutions to stick to, these countries might help and maybe try out some of our travel hacks to help avoid those holiday blues.
Perhaps you're looking for a road trip, bush escape or luxury extravaganza to make this your year, but be sure you got your New Year plans sorted.
Here's to many more travels for 2019, and maybe we'll bump into you somewhere along the way...
