    Priced off the Greek Isles? Try southern Turkey. The old fishing village of Kas remains relatively untouched, and it's known as a divers' paradise.

    Forget the arrondissements of Paris. Now, Île-de-France, the district that encompasses the city and its outskirts, has become a destination in its own right.
  4. Tanzania

    Security fears in neighboring Kenya have inadvertently worked in Tanzania’s favor, as far as tourism goes. Its luxurious new lodges are enticing diverted visitors. But the real new treasure here is unprecedented access to sparsely trafficked regions.
  5. Squamish, Canada

    Can a $22 million gondola put a Canadian mountain town on the world map? Maybe. But Squamish's unusual combination of West Coast wilderness and accessibility certainly help.
  6. Cleveland, Ohio

    Cleveland's in the midst of a comeback fueled by art, culture and, of course, LeBron James.
  7. Danang, Vietnam

    This coastal gateway has become a destination in its own right.
  8. Adelaide, Australia
    3a6917a7 ab5e 4d38 b725 33ede0972f15
    Sure, Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, is close to both wine country and beaches. But there are more reasons to stay in the city.
  9. Macedonia
    16d65525 4489 4ca6 9aa8 2db4eb923960
    Known for its moody monasteries and sparkling Lake Ohrid, this former Yugoslav republic is making a play for adventure foodies, too.
  10. Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
    6bbd53d9 ed14 4c22 9859 15b66e719a9e
    Taos Ski Valley already had rugged scenery and Old World Alpine charm. Now the resort is getting a much-needed shot in the arm.
