Singapore is in no. 1 place because of her Golden Jubilee next year. Lonely Planet recommends visiting Marina Bay, a new entertainment precinct, and to consider "the new crop of swanky hotels" and new attractions like the National Art Gallery and the Singapore Sports Hub.

The Philippines is in 8th place, and Lonely Planet notes that the government has organised a number of events for 2015 to raise awareness about the 7,100+ islands in the country. "If there’s one thing Filipinos know how to do, it’s party – expect street parades, food festivals, sports tournaments and live music. Now that Philippine Airlines has gained approval for direct flights to Europe, America and Australia, why wait?" asks Lonely Planet.
