    If you want to escape the noisy life and find nature, go to Botswana, and if you want to explore the ancient heritage, Greece is always a welcome place.

    At the end of each year, the US magazine National Geographic (NatGeo) announces two important projects: awarding the best photos and suggesting destinations and experiences not to be missed when traveling in the coming year.

    After two years of the epidemic, the new criteria applied by NatGeo to select destinations for 2023 are: places that are different, new and inspiring. That's why this year's NatGeo destination list focuses on national parks and wildlife around the world; outdoor activities and experiences; green tourism; multi-generational destination.

    25 destinations are divided equally into 5 categories: experience journeys for all generations (Family); active in risky places (Adventure); history and heritage discovery (Culture); wild, beautiful places (Natural) and the journey of community conservation, sustainable destinations (Community).

    In the Community category, the destinations mentioned by NatGeo were exploring the island of Karoathos, Greece, where women-led business projects are leading the way in sustainable tourism.
