Top Emerging Destinations: Sudan, Greenland, Mongolia; Top Countries: Japan, Bhutan, New Zealand

Wanderlust magazine announced the winners of Travel Awards 2012. Basically, they’ve asked their readers in November and December to answer some questions regarding their year in travel.

The answers were centralized, and the final results were made public yesterday. Beware though: the results are surprising, as top emerging countries are interesting (and in some there are politically problems – and not only).
