This month Lonely Planet publishes its new book Secret City, an insider’s guide to the world’s coolest neighbourhoods.
The team has shared with Express.co.co.uk five of the best under-the-radar destinations to add to your travel list for after coronavirus.
Woodstock – Cape Town, South Africa
“One of the hippest neighbourhoods in the city, Woodstock is home to microbreweries, craft distilleries, coffee roasteries and art studios,” explains Secret City.
“At heart, it’s still an industrial district – after dark you’d be wise to summon a ride-share service to get from A to B.
“Thanks to its slow gentrification, there are plenty of newly opened attractions and hidden sights to seek out, some even sitting on the main roads.”
Head to Altona Fisheries for famous foot-long sandwich the Gatsby, visit the enduringly popular and ever-busy Neighbourgoods Market on a Saturday and drink beer with a view of Devil’s Peak at the Drifter Brewing Company.
