Fodor’s 2023 GO and NO lists revealed, with Cornwall and the American West NOT recommended

With a world’s worth of options, settling on your next holiday destination can be tricky, but these top tips on where to go – and where to avoid – will help you prioritise those bucket list items.

The wanderlust-themed wisdom is courtesy of Fodor’s Travel and its newly released Go and No lists for 2023, as well as a rundown of the ‘most incredible hotels in the world’.

Holiday hotspots such as Cornwall in south-west England and popular states in the American West, including Arizona, Nevada and Utah, appear on the ‘No’ list, which flags destinations that travellers should reconsider visiting for ethical or environmental concerns.

When it comes to the unique hotels to check into around the world, Fodor’s recommends spending the night at Borealis Basecamp in Alaska and London’s The Twenty Two, among others.

A total of 10 places, divided across three categories, have made their way onto the ‘No’ list for 2023.

Cornwall falls into the category of ‘Suffering Cultural Hotspots’, as Fodor’s says that traffic ‘plagues residents’ of the county and that a housing crisis there is being ‘fuelled by short-term vacation rentals driving up the cost of living’.
