Derry makes it into Top 10 cities on planet

DERRY has earned a place in the 'Lonely Planet' travel bible as one of the top 10 cities in the world to visit next year.

The city trounced competition from destinations many times its size to take fourth place in the 'Best in Travel 2013' city recommendations.

Only one other European city, Amsterdam, made it in to the top 10.

The endorsement from ' Lonely Planet' -- seen as the world's leading travel authority -- has been hailed as a massive boost as Derry gears up to host the first UK City of Culture year.

San Francisco topped the poll with Amsterdam in second place and the Indian city of Hyderabad third.
