11. Buenos Aires
The charm of Argentina’s capital goes beyond the “Paris-of-South-America” clichés; this is a city of world-class art, exceptional cuisine, and acclaimed design. After a 2001 crisis battered the nation’s economy, B.A. became one of the few high-gloss/low-cost destinations; the resulting influx of visitors and expats transformed the city. The much-anticipated Terminal C at Ministro Pistarini International Airport opened this year with shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. Before you leave, pick up a souvenir at the Pick Market, Recoleta’s airy new food hall.
