The New York Times has released its annual innovative list of the 52 top places to go in 2016, with Australian city Sydney making the list. This year Sydney has earned its place for being a city 'outdoor lovers can embrace', home to beaches and national parks. Additionally, Sydney's two new developments have caught the eye of The New York Times this year. The shoreside promenade of Barangaroo Reserve, and will also temporarily house Copenhagen restaurant Noma for ten weeks from this month. The Goods Line - a repurposed train line that's been turned into an elevated walkway in a similar vein to New York's High Line, Sydney's renovated Old Clare Hotel and the reintroduction of American Airlines flights to Los Angeles in December also rated a mention. However, it was Mexico City that was named as the number one destination for 2016. See the full list of 52 cities here.
