Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2011: Tangier hits the mark

Lonely Planet's new publication, Best in Travel 2011, features Tangier as one of its top ten cities to visit next year.
'A stylish new Tangier is being created with a dynamic arts community, renovated buildings, great shopping and chic new restaurants', says The View from Fez writer Helen Ranger and author of the piece.

Other cities recommended are New York, ten years after 9/11, Tel Aviv, Wellington, Valencia, Iquitos, Ghent, Delhi, Chang Mai and Newcastle (the one in Australia, that is).

The book has some exciting suggestions including Lonely Planet's list of the top 10 countries to explore (from Albania to Vanuatu), top 10 regions (think anywhere between Patagonia, the Shetland Isles and the Sinai), and the top travel experiences. In this category, you'll find where to find the world's greatest bookshops, the best vampire-spotting locales, the most super-luxe travel, and plenty of other ideas. Of the top 10 places to learn the local cuisine, Lahcen Beqqi of Fez is right up there along with Vietnamese, Mexican, Turkish and more.

For some armchair travelling and inspiration for your next holiday, this is a great book to have. Iceland, anyone?

The View from Fez has been running a campaign to promote Tangier. You seem to have done well. The Tangier of old had a bad reputation, but now I find it a delightful and safe place to visit. Congratulations to The View from Fez!
