Tripadvisor recently announced its annual Travelers’ Choice awards for the best places to globetrot in 2023. You’ll find several very familiar destinations on the list, and several you may have never considered — which is half the fun.

The awards, which are based on millions of Tripadviser users reviews, give a shout out to the most popular destinations — Dubai, Paris, Rome — in the world, as well as foodie hot spots, cultural gems, ski meccas, natural wonders and trending locales. The latter are places where interest on the travel planning site has shot up the most since last year. That’s the one that piques our interest the most, because those lists — both the global and the U.S. versions —  are always full of surprises.

The trending list runs the full gamut from the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean to Juneau, Alaska and Tierra Verde, Florida. There’s Lanzarote in the Canary Islands (west of Morocco), and Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (east of Bali), as well as Sonoma and Paso Robles.
