I think similar lists are being compiled by a number of agencies, travel companies, tourism boards, etc. I was thinking where I might go in 2010, too and I have not studies any of those lists yet. I thought I could do my own, depending on the standing point where are planet is at these days. I came up with 9 countries. I have visited some of them and yet to visit some, too. I am missing the tenth one. Perhaps, this would be an interesting (and provocative) discussion on GLOBO, what you think the tenth country could be.

1. Albania - dusting off its ancient treasures, transforming into more commercial and money-driven society, but not quite there yet...

2. Antarctica - not a country, but surely a fascinating place on our globe, and given all the stories about global warming, perhaps it is time to have a glance at the ice cap, before the passage from the tip of South America becomes too rough to cross...

3. Brazil - on a verge to become an oil extracting super power, a truly diverse and fascinating country offering virtually everything a traveller might want...

4. Cuba - still clinging to the socialist way of life - how long will it last...

5. Ghana - during the World Cup to witness the electrifying atmosphere as this nation goes far in the competition...

6. Iran - hanging in the balance as changes might happen any time, fascinating and hospitable, incredible value for money...

7. Nepal - as it transforms from centuries-old monarchy into a republic, to see how the royal properties are converted into museums...

8. Republic of South Africa - not during the World Cup, but perhaps a few weeks after, in the spring to see wildlife caring for their offsprings, and see how the country improved its infrastructure and safety record...

9. Turkey - a country in the waiting room to the EU, re-inventing itself, for better or for worse? ...

10. ???

I am looking forward to see suggestion...

Kind regards
Krys

I suggest Kamtschatka, a peninsula in the east asian part of Russia, where you'll find: bears, smoking volcanoes, geysers (90 of them in one valley), hot springs, taiga and tundra, and not a lot of people. Its history is quite gruesome, but now it styles itself to be a tourist attraction, so it would be advisable to go there as fast as possible, before all the evil of tourism spoils the place.
