    8 Destinations To Visit In 2023 Inspired By Pantone’s Color Of The Year

    8 Destinations To Visit In 2023 Inspired By Pantone’s Color Of The Year

    Pantone announced their highly anticipated color of the year for 2023, which was revealed to be Viva Magenta! 

    We teamed up with the experts at Planet Cruise to put together eight travel destinations inspired by the color Viva Magenta, so you can embrace this color through your 2023 travels.

    Described as brave and fearless, this color can be found in all walks of nature around the world. So, what better way to embrace this color in 2023 than to visit these destinations. This list features eight stunning locations worldwide based on Pantone’s color of the year. From Vietnam to Paris, mountains to waterfalls, here are some of the most aesthetically pleasing Viva Magenta locations to inspire your travel in 2023.

    1. Hanoi, Vietnam

    Quang Phu Cau on the outskirts of Hanoi is known as one of the “incense villages.” Ahead of the Lunar New Year celebrations called Tet, you’ll find hundreds of colorful incense sticks fanned out like bouquets along the streets and courtyards. The holiday’s full name is Tet Nguyen Dan, which means “feast of the first morning”.

    At midnight on Jan. 31, or the last day of the old year (giao thua), families burn the incense to invite deities and ancestors to gather. When the incense burning ends, everyone comes together to eat and wish each other a happy new year. The best time to visit and experience this cultural event is January, right before the Lunar New Year on Feb. 1.

    2. Cape Town, South Africa

    The vibrant neighborhood of Bo-Kaap, which translates to “above the Cape,” is located at the foot of Signal Hill in Cape Town. Today, it is the city’s oldest surviving residential neighborhood as well as a historical hub of Cape Malay culture. It’s filled with houses and mosques dating back to the 1700s.

    Bo-Kaap is also home to the largest grouping of pre-1850 architecture in South Africa. Originally, the houses in this neighborhood were leased to southeast Asian slaves. When this rule was lifted and homes were able to be purchased, they were all painted in vibrant colors as a symbol of joy and freedom.

    3. Ruby Falls In Chattanooga, Tennessee

    Located on Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Tennessee. Ruby Falls is a 145-foot underground waterfall located more than 1,100 feet below the surface of Lookout Mountain. Interestingly enough, Ruby Falls is only a small part of the Lookout Mountain Cave, which is believed to be 2.5 miles long. After visiting the falls and viewing the spectacular underground landscape, you can take a zipline tour to get a thrilling topside experience on Lookout Mountain.

    4. Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada

    Valley of Fire State Park is a public nature preservation area covering nearly 40,000 acres in Overton, Nevada. World-renowned for its acres of bright red Aztec sandstone combined with grey and tan limestone. The national park is open all year round and can be reached by car on all designated driving routes.

    5. Technicolor Basketball Court In Paris

    In a unique collaboration between French fashion brand Pigalle and design agency Ill-Studio, the Paris Duperré basketball court was recently redesigned and repainted with a vibrant new color scheme. The narrow basketball court is nestled between two apartment buildings in the 9th arrondissement and has become a backdrop of sorts for unconventional color schemes, the first of which appeared in 2015.

    6. Toyko’s Toggle Hotel

    Located in Tokyo’s Suidobashi district, Toggle Hotel is a burst of color in an otherwise monotone neighborhood. After checking into the bright green reception area, guests can choose their room based on their favorite color—and the rooms are very on-theme, with every piece of furniture, bedding, and carpeting done up in the exact same color (including a rosy magenta color, pictured here).

    7. Havana, Cuba

    From its pastel buildings to its verdant parks, Havana is easily one of the most colorful cities in the world. Bright and pale colors fluctuate houses, cars, and people, among drying laundry and flowers, restored houses, and rubble. Even its famous vintage cars and taxis are a visual treat, lined up on the street in varying shades of pink and red making the perfect Viva Magenta mix.

    8. Miami Beach’s Dedicated Pantone Artechouse Exhibit

    Explore Miami Beach’s dedicated Pantone ARTECHOUSE Exhibit in an experience that features technology-driven art in collaboration with Pantone. Using the 2023 color of the year, the exhibit creates a show offering an immersive way to enjoy the energy of Viva Magenta.

    This exhibit is the fourth annual collaboration between these two well-known brands and will be displayed throughout Spring of 2023. Visitors will experience this immersive and experiential art installation through multiple senses and feel the tones of the color in more ways than one.
