Dundee in top ten

Tayside city named in poll by The Wall Street Journal

Discovery Point and the V&A Museum of Design, Dundee

Dundee has been named as one of 10 hot destinations in 2018 for “adventurous sophisticates, curious foodies and deep-pocketed beach bums”, by The Wall Street Journal.

Referred to as “Scotland’s coolest city”, Dundee has been ranked alongside Shanghai, Madagascar and the Faroe Islands as one of the places to travel to next year.

In naming the City of Discovery on its hot list, The Wall Street Journal highlights the opening of the new V&A Museum of Design, Dundee as part of its attraction.

It writes: “A coastal college town, Dundee has emerged as Scotland’s coolest city (see the old public library turned underground club). In 2018 the V&A Museum of Design will debut as the centrepiece of a $1.5 billion transformation of the faded riverfront. Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the new V&A will celebrate the country’s unsung design heritage – from jute to Minecraft.”

The Wall Street Journal is considered America’s most widely-read newspaper and their digital edition reaches a global audience of 42.4 million readers per month.

Dundee has previously been named “coolest little city in Britain” by GQ Magazine.

Jim Clarkson, Regional Director at VisitScotland, said: “We’ve always known Dundee was ‘cool’ and now we can say it is ‘hot’ too, thanks to The Wall Street Journal.

“To be named as a must-visit destination, in such a prestigious publication, is testament to the hard work and dedication of our local tourism partners in continuing to revitalise the region and deliver a top quality experience for visitors.

“The city is buzzing around the multi-million pound makeover of the waterfront and the opening of the V&A Museum of Design, Dundee in 2018 and it’s fantastic to see this excitement has spread beyond our shores.

“Tourism is more than a holiday experience – it is integral to sustaining communities across Scotland by generating income, creating jobs and stimulating social change – and accolades like this will help to build the reputation of Dundee and boost the local economy.”

The 10 ‘hot destinations’ named by The Wall Street Journal are:

  1. Faroe Islands
  2. Puebla, Mexico
  3. Kuelap, Peru
  4. Minneapolis
  5. Dundee, Scotland
  6. Grenada
  7. Madagascar
  8. Montenegro
  9. Shanghai
  10. La Rioja, Spain
