When Forbes put together its list of the 50 best places to visit in the world post-Covid, unsurprising bucket-list destinations such as Caribbean island Dominica, wildlife haven Galapagos Islands or Australia’s Great Barrier Reef were included.
Milos in Greece, Istria in Croatia and the Canary Islands were also all featured on the list.
Going north, Alta in Norway was noted for its aurora borealis.
Slightly more unusual destinations such as Gdańsk in Poland and Luxembourg were also named.
Ranked alphabetically, there was no way to know how Bristol compared to holidaymakers’ sun-drenched favourites.
Making the list, however, was already a feat.
Bristol was noted for its “spirited identity and lively atmosphere”.
The street art was also mentioned, with Banksy having put the city on the map for many international tourists.
Attractions recommended included Brunel’s SS Great Britain and the flagship M Shed museum.
History lovers should go to the Victorian Gothic Revival family home of Tyntesfield.
The gardens are beautiful decked out in autumn colours and it’s also possible to visit the house.
Right in the centre of Bristol are Cabot Tower and Brandon Hill.
Brandon Hill is the oldest park in the city.
Cabot Tower commemorates John Cabot’s voyage from Bristol to North America in the 15th century.
