“A coastal college town, Dundee has emerged as Scotland’s coolest city (see the old public library turned underground club)”, writes the newspaper’s Christian L. Wright.

The guide highlights the new V&A Museum of Design as ‘the centerpiece of a $1.5 billion transformation of the faded riverfront’ which will ‘celebrate the country’s unsung design heritage—from jute to Minecraft’.

Also on the list are the Faeroe Islands, Puebla in Mexico, Peru’s Kuelap, Minneapolis, Montenegro and La Rioja in Spain.
