(The Independent) – Singapore has topped Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2015 list this year, followed by Namibia and Lithuania.

With its unique style of cuisine and culture, Lonely Planet selected the Southeast Asia destination as it offers an escape from the typical urban landscape, as well as providing ample opportunities to explore the island. In addition, Singapore will celebrate fifty years of independence next year, so we can expect some grand celebrations.

The list was compiled through criteria such as whether there was a special event next year, or because the writers believed that the destination will soon become a big hit. Smaller countries were given a fair opportunity as recent developments were considered, meaning that the more well-known travel destinations would not be able to dominate.
