Dundee in ‘hot destinations’ list

Discovery Point and the V&A Museum of Design, Dundee (VisitScotland)

October 28 (TravelAndy): Dundee has been named as one of 10 “hot destinations” in 2018 for “adventurous sophisticates, curious foodies and deep-pocketed beach bums”, by The Wall Street Journal.

Referred to as “Scotland’s coolest city”, Dundee has been ranked alongside Shanghai, Madagascar and the Faroe Islands as one of the places to travel to next year.

In naming the City of Discovery on its hot list, The Wall Street Journal highlights the opening of the new V&A Museum of Design, Dundee as part of its attraction.

It writes: “A coastal college town, Dundee has emerged as Scotland’s coolest city (see the old public library turned underground club). In 2018 the V&A Museum of Design will debut as the centrepiece of a $1.5 billion transformation of the faded riverfront. Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the new V&A will celebrate the country’s unsung design heritage – from jute to Minecraft.”

Dundee has previously been named “coolest little city in Britain” by GQ Magazine.

The 10 ‘hot destinations’ named by The Wall Street Journal are:

  1. Faroe Islands
  2. Puebla, Mexico
  3. Kuelap, Peru
  4. Minneapolis
  5. Dundee, Scotland
  6. Grenada
  7. Madagascar
  8. Montenegro
  9. Shanghai
  10. La Rioja, Spain
