PERTH has made the top 10 of The New York Times‘ list of 52 Places to Go in 2014.

The WA capital was ranked No. 9 and was the only Australian city to be included.

It lauded Perth as “exhibiting the signs of a trendy transformation”, citing chef Jamie Oliver’s decision to open a restaurant here and bars such as Print Hall and The Stables Bar popping up in rejuvenated buildings.

Mount Lawley and Northbridge get a mention, described as “chockablock with cafes and vintage shops.”

The Riverside project, which will infuse “the eastern side of the city with parks, shops and housing plazas” and the expansion of Crown Perth are also mentioned.

Cape Town in South Africa topped the list, followed by Christchurch, the northern coast of California, the Albanian coast and Downtown Los Angeles.

The 52 Places to Go list is compiled by the influential publication’s travel editors.
