On the radar: Places to go in 2015

On the radar: Places to go in 2015

As Cuba and Iran come in from the cold and a new railway opens up Sri Lanka, we round up the destinations that should be on your radar in 2015.

1) Cuba- For more than half a century Cuba’s relationship with the US has been colder than a polar bear’s testicles, but with Barack Obama softening policy towards the Castro regime – and vice versa – this Caribbean island is poised for a tourism revolution.

2) Namibia- From the Dali-esque landscapes of the Namib Desert to the shimmering salt plains of Etosha National Park, Namibia is a land of unfathomable beauty. A visit in 2015 will have added poignancy – it’s 25 years since the nation gained independence from neighbouring South Africa – although, truth be told, there’s never a bad time to go.

3) Svalbard, Norway- There’s a total solar eclipse happening on 20 March 2015 and there are only two places on Earth where you can see it: the Faroe Islands and Svalbard. Every man and his dog seems to be heading to the Faroes, so we recommend viewing the spectacle from the frozen Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard.

4) Ometepe, Nicaragua- While history buffs have been pottering around the colonial cities of Granada and Leon for years, it’s the country's newest tourism hub that captures the eye for 2015: the hourglass-shaped island of Ometepe, with its twin volcanic peaks rising from Lake Nicaragua. The little-known island welcomed its first airport in 2014, granting easy access from the mainland.
