Jetsetter's 12 Destinations For 2012 (PHOTOS)

Posted: 01/05/12 09:15 AM ET

Here's a New Year's resolution for you: Get your passport stamped in one of the year's hottest destinations.

London, Myanmar, Panama -- each of our picks is a classic in the midst of transformation or a sneak-up-on-you surprise. Cheer on Olympians in a futuristic Zaha Hadid-designed pavilion, witness the brightest Northern Lights in 50 years or lose yourself in once-in-a-lifetime reggae festival.

Sure beats hitting the gym.

Why Now: Berlin is Europe's unofficial contemporary art capital with more than 20,000 artists, 180 museums and 440 galleries. Planning a trip is easier than ever, thanks to a batch of stylish new hotels, including a new build by the Waldorf Astoria, and amped-up transportation: Air Berlin now offers daily service from Berlin to New York and launches the first non-stop flight to Los Angeles (about $960 roundtrip) in May, and the Berlin Brandenburg International airport debuts a month later. Art highlights for 2012 include the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art (April 27-July 1) and the Neues Museum's exhibition in honor of the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the bust of Nefertiti in December.
