You’ll be pleased to know that Lonely Planet has named Kathmandu one of the top cities in the world for travellers in 2019. Kathmandu made it to the 5th placed in the list.
“In the aftermath of the 2015 earthquake, news reports from Kathmandu showed a city broken and in mourning, but today the narrative is all about reconstruction and rejuvenation. Sure, there’s work to do restoring the magnificent monuments that crumbled during the disaster, but historic sites are being returned to their former glory, and moves to calm the city’s infamous traffic, smog and noise have made Kathmandu more liveable than it has been in decades,” the Lonely Planet writes.
Denmark’s capital Copenhagen has topped the list followed by Shēnzhèn, China. Novi Sad, Serbia and Miami, Florida were placed in the third and fourth places respectively.
