Airfares Drop and Top Destinations on Earth Named

airplaneA more affordable time to fly

If you’re looking to buy plane tickets it may be the perfect time to do so and see the world. The Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index shows July airfares have fallen 5.6% year-over-year. That’s the biggest one month decline since 1995!

It isn’t entirely clear what has led to the price drop, but fuel costs and the growth of less expensive carriers may have something to do with it, so go out and travel!

Lonely Planet names Top 25 Destinations in the World

How do you pick the world’s top destinations when there are so many to choose from? Lonely Planet looked at thousands of highlights from four decades of travel guides and data while speaking with travel experts from around the world to narrow down the locations.

Topping the list was the 9th century Temple of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Some of the others include the Colosseum in Rome and Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona.

While we did mention the Top 25 destinations were listed we were only telling a partial truth. Lonely Planet actually compiled the top 500 destinations and only released the Top 25 to whet our appetites. You can read the full list when it is published October 6th, but can see that Top 25 list by visiting this link.
