This Year's Winners

Where do you want to go in 2012? We've got some ideas.

This time every year, Frommer's editors, authors, and experts from around the world finally settle on a list of our top destinations after months of bickering among ourselves. Choosing was harder than ever this year, so we ended up expanding our picks to include additional selections that were notable for a certain quality or offered something special for particular types of travelers.

For the third year in a row, we reached out to readers to find out where they wanted to be in the coming year. After thousands of nominations and thousands of votes, you made your choice known.

To explain to you why we chose what, we went to our experts in the field: authors and editors who live in the destinations or who travel there on the regular. We think the best people to share about a city or a region are those who can't stay away from them for too long.

If your favorite place didn't make the list, join in the comments below to say where you want to see yourself in the coming year. Safe travels.
