The Best in Travel list from Lonely Planet evaluates hundreds of popular destinations throughout the world, from which a selection is made by a panel of five travel professionals and connoisseurs. The top 10 counties in the 2022 edition were carefully selected for their relevance and preparedness to welcome guests in 2022, as well as their diverse experiences and "wow" effect, as well as their dedication to sustainable tourism practices.

Deputy Prime Minister, Hon. Steven Obeegadoo commented: “We are pleased that Lonely Planet has nominated Mauritius as one of the most exciting destinations for 2022. Throughout recent years, Mauritius has been lauded for implementing sustainable activities and practices for incoming travellers. Mauritius is an outstanding model of eco-tourism in action, with a multitude of green zones, including forests, parks, and nature reserves, as well as eco-friendly activities such as electric bikes and the prohibition of single-use plastics.”

The publication of Lonely Planet's annual "best in travel list" of destinations and travel experiences, according to Tom Hall, VP of Experience, could not come at a better moment. It's time to dust off those long-postponed travel dreams and make them come true after a forced hiatus."
