What will be hot in 2011?

Several years ago, the BootsnAll staff got together and produced a list of places we thought would be independent travel hotspots for the following year. We’ve come out with similar lists each year since then – partly because we think it’s a fun exercise, and partly because we started taking suggestions from readers.

Last year, we gathered your suggestions into the list of the top 10 destinations for 2010 that we thought (and you thought) would be big this past year. Our list included South Africa, Iceland, the Philippines, Chile and New Zealand. Have a look at the 2010 list and let us know if you got to any of those places in the last year.

As 2010 is rapidly winding down, we’re putting our heads together again to come up with the 2011 list – and once again, we’re hoping you’ll help chip in your thoughts.

Please fill out our online form to let us know what you think will be the top destinations for 2011. You don’t have to be clairvoyent, and we’re not even asking for names on the form – we just want to know what you think should be on an independent traveler’s radar for a place to go in the coming year.

Will a country have a breakout year in 2011? Will a place that used to be overrun but has recently fallen out of favor be back on the indie travel hot list? Let us know what you think!
