At the top of our must-visit cities is South Africa’s Cape Town. The list of this year’s trending cities was dominated by destinations beside the sea. But only in Cape Town is it possible to surf the Atlantic, climb a mountain, enjoy Michelin-star food, relax on the beach with penguins and taste some of the world’s finest wines all in one day before returning for a snooze in one of the many historic or modern-chic accommodations.

Our safe bet trending destination is Matera in Italy. Located in the deep south of mainland Italy, Matera was, until fifty years ago, one of the poorest towns in Western Europe. But with a honeycomb of alleyways, sun-drenched caves, and sleepy squares it was easy to see the potential of this historic town. Now a bustling Mediterranean village, Matera is a must-see if you’re a fan of European culture. The ancient alleyways seem to be Instagram perfect, so you will surely impress your friends when sending a photo snap from there with your European SIM card.

Sure, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines have been popular destinations for a while now, and so you might argue that this next selection is not particularly a trending destination for 2014, but Sumatra in Indonesia is one of the less visited islands and yet one of the most strikingly beautiful. So if you too would like to jump on the South East Asia bandwagon, but hate the thought of crowds of tourists then book your flights to Sumatra for some adventure.
