If you’re anything like us, your bucket list of places to go never stops growing. It seems every year, a few new places capture your imagination: those photos on Facebook of a remote Caribbean beach or a friend’s trek through Nepal leave your head spinning. The bucket keeps filling, and there’s no end in sight.

Well, we’ve come to make it worse.

If you can believe it, 2015 is already in the books, and we look onward to 2016, which brings new resolutions, and a whole new bucket list to conquer. Every year, we put together a list of must-visit destinations for the coming year — places that are news making, experiencing a renaissance or reinvention. Some are endangered or changing so rapidly you just have to go now, and some are simply timeless.

Our list is a who’s who of once-in-a-lifetime trips — the developing world of Yangon, the tragic beauty of the Rwandan countryside, the rustic charm of Ireland’s backroads, the world-class beaches of Brazil, the wondrous Galapagos, and the gay caché of San Francisco — plus many more and the world-stage events they’re hosting to bring them all into the public consciousness in the next twelve months.
