1. Paris, France

It's elegant, fancy, charming, bohemian, avant-garde, vintage and many other things at the same time. And it's also not perfect! It's noisy, dirty and a little smelly and that makes it more appealing for me." From Trippy member Laura Weber

2. Istanbul, Turkey

3. London, England

Also the fact that you nowadays can eat great food and yummy desserts in London - that's a huge bonus! It's a cliché but I really like the Soho district. And the English pubs! Mitre is one of my favorites with a decor that feels very 1920s and a huge amount of beers to choose from."

4. Havana, Cuba

It's vibrant, the people are warm and courteous, it's cheap and it's not completely over-run with tourists. Most importantly, it's quite literally like stepping back in time. Anyone who doesn't make an effort to speak or understand at least a little Spanish might find it difficult at times. But seriously, ditch your phone and white shoes and just lose yourself here!"

From Trippy member Jeyme Bolck of Tannum Sands, Australia

5. Pompeii, Italy

I could have spent a week exploring the inner parts of each house, imagining what life was like inside."

From Trippy member Krista Gray of San Francisco, California

6. Guilin, China

Locals gather all along the riverbank at all hours of the day just to move around, dance, practice Tai Chi. It offers some of the best flavours in China. Cruise the Li River, visit the Longshen Rice terraces and go exploring in the Reed Flute Cave. There's so many wonderful things to do here. Guilin has a great vibe."

7. Delhi, India

8. Reykjavik, Iceland

The city is full of hipster types, but unlike the hipsters found in the U.S.A. and elsewhere in Europe, they have no pretenses and are always friendly and fun to party with. And as the only city of any size in Iceland and home to over half the country's population, the food and cultural scenes is surprisingly good too."

From Trippy member Janelle Kennedy of Charleston, South Carolina

9. Amsterdam, The Netherlands

From Trippy member Isabele Ferreira of Spain

10. San Francisco, California

There's an incredible restaurant on every block and always some fantastic event like a festival or concert going on. And romantic; the view of the bridge alone is enough to make you want to move there."

From Trippy member Courtney Robinson of Los Angeles, California
