The New York Times has a list of 2008’s “it” destinations.  Laos tops the list, because you know, Cambodia and Vietnam are so 2007.  Seriously, though, it’s a decent list of global hotspots and definitely inspiring if you love to travel, although a little heavy on the luxury side of things.

Is anyone else a little confused by Detroit’s inclusion on the list?  Seriously, I grew up there and I can’t imagine anyone chosing it as a vacation spot.
