AD circled the globe to discover the world’s most under-the-radar, wanderlust-worthy locales—before everybody else does

You don’t need us to tell you the world is a big place. Though it seems like we’re getting ever more connected, there are still plenty of opportunities to get off the grid. Itching to dive deeper into Argentina’s gaucho country, Italy’s under-the-radar ski towns, Japan’s most incredible art site, or Thailand’s unspoiled beaches? These 11 destinations you probably haven’t heard of should be next on your bucket list.

The Benesse Foundation is responsible for revitalizing this cluster of once-polluted islands with contemporary art.
