Bootsnall top ten destinations for 2008

Bootsnall recently published its list of top destinations for independent travellers in 2008. The list is:

10 Buenos Aires, Argentina
9 Budapest, Hungary
8 Morocco
7 Chiang Mai, Thailand
6 Imet Gogo, Ethiopia
5 Queenstown, New Zealand
4 Palermo, Sicily
3 Petra, Jordan
2 Belize
1 Nepal

Interesting list, especially with Nepal number 1. I have seen some of the same on other lists, especially Argentina, Marocco and an eastern European destination. But I am a bit surprised at Nepal. I would have chosen a “newer” destination, such as Kyrgyzstan, or even Mongolia.
