“Clean and classy” Helsinki tops global travel list
As far as travel guides are concerned, Finland’s doing great for tourism in 2017: yet another publication has listed Finland as a top destination.
“With 2017 marking the 100th anniversary of Finland’s independence, the clean, classy capital, Helsinki, is set to be Scandinavia’s place to be in the new year,” the website states. “Any time of the year, it’s a pleasure to explore the city’s high-design aesthetic (Helsinki was named the World Design Capital in 2012), thriving café and sauna culture, and the newly renovated Old Market Hall along the city’s revitalized waterfront.”
As an insider tip, Fodor’s suggests travellers go to the Lake Saimaa region for its sublime forests and pristine natural beauty.
