Travel Trends: What’s Hot In 2013

2. Stockholm


Why now: The gorgeous and gay-loving Swedish capital is near the top of must-go lists every year, and in 2013 it will finally see the opening of the long-awaited ABBA Museum. Stockholm was also just voted global Style Capital by Logo TV’s, and until the end of March, the Museum of Far East Antiquities is hosting Secret Love, a groundbreaking show featuring more than 20 contemporary queer Chinese artists.

Where to stay: The sleekly-designed urban island oasis Hotel Skeppsholmen

Where to eat: The über-hip and Michelin-starred F12

Where to drink: The stylish summer floating deck bar Malarpaviljongen

Side trip: Lovely Malmö, which in May will host the 2013 edition of the deliciously campy Eurovision Song Contest
