Lonely Planet reveals the top 10 regions to visit in 2022
November 1, 2021
Lonely Planet has revealed the top 10 regions to visit in 2022 – and one in the UK makes the top five.
Kent’s Heritage Coast took fourth place, only pipped to the post by destinations in Iceland, the US and China.
Coming out on top was the Westfjords in Iceland, a remote peninsula in the northwest, followed by West Virginia in the US and Xishuangbanna in China, which borders Myanmar and Laos.
The Heritage Coast in Kent spans from south of Folkestone to the beaches north of Dover, and includes part of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Lonely Planet, when explaining why it made the list, said: “Despite its beaches (both sand and pebbles), sea-sculpted cliffs, epic sunsets, vast history, and splendid Victorian architecture, the Kent coast has sometimes felt rundown and overlooked.
“Now, there’s a growing artistic community here and an explosion of things to do. Highlights include castles and cliffs, a show-stealing art gallery and a historic theme park.”
