It’s that time of year when travel experts tell you where to go in 2018. But the travel guidebook publisher Fodor’s has come up with a different type of list: where NOT to go in the new year.

In this episode of “Get Outta Here,” hosted by AP Travel editor Beth J. Harpaz, we hear from Fodor’s editorial director Jeremy Tarr about the travel brand’s recommendations for places to avoid. Some of them are places that are overcrowded or endangered by too much tourism. A few are places that have been caught up in controversies. We’ll go through the list of 10 and find out why Fodor’s thinks you should stay away.

New episodes of “Get Outta Here!” are published every Wednesday. Host Beth J. Harpaz is travel editor for The Associated Press, a Big Apple Greeter volunteer and a licensed tour guide in her native New York City. She recently completed a quest to visit all 50 states.

Before becoming travel editor, where most of the news - thank goodness - is about happy people going on nice vacations, Beth covered politics, disasters and all manner of mayhem for the AP. And not to reveal her age, but she also worked for several newspapers way back in the 20th century and even wrote three books.

She does not own wheeled luggage but instead carries her belongings around the world in an ancient backpack and various tote bags.
