As the new year begins and people look ahead to what they want to do, what they want to achieve and where they want to go, one of the things on many people’s minds is travel. So, if you’ve not decided what you want to go in 2020, then maybe this list will help you:

Cancun, Mexico
Cancun is home to many beautiful beaches and stunning hotels, but there is more to the destination than just a resort stay. Cancun also has a vibrant nightlife, which includes the Coco Bongo in the heart of Cancun’s Hotel Zone, where people go for a great night of music and entertainment. Or you can do things like save a Sea Turtle with a turtle release program and learn about the plight of the sea turtles, their nesting habits, and their struggle to survive. Then guests can take baby sea turtles to the ocean and set them free. There are loads of things to do, such as visiting the Cancun Underwater Museum, there are loads of places to stay, such as El Dorado Maroma and loads of adventures to be had.

Kyoto, Japan
Japan will be hosting the 2020 Olympic games, and hoteliers in Kyoto are ramping up their rooms to account for the crowds. There are going to be new hotels opening, but as well as that, there are other reasons you might want to visit Kyoto. The city is home to over 1,600 historic Buddhist temples with many dating back more than a millennium; it is home to 400 colorful shrines dedicated to Japan’s ancient religion, it has one of the world’s largest collections of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is the birthplace of the Maiko and Geisha culture. Need I say more?

Rijeka, Croatia
Croatia’s third-largest city is one that people don’t tend to spend much time in because they use it for the ferry port to get elsewhere. However, it is a place worth going to itself, and as it’s less touristy, you can get a more authentic experience of Croatia. You can mingle with locals, go for a meal or a night out on Korzo, which is Rijeka’s busy promenade, or shop like a local at the central market. Then, of course, if you want to escape Rijeka, just ten kilometers up the coast is a little stone town on the high ground called Kastav. Many of the locals visit Kastav in summer as there are concerts and festivals on including the blues festival, a guitar festival, and the Kastav Summer of Culture.

Rabat, Morocco
This town has been described as Art’s new epicenter, and if you’re looking for somewhere to relax then, this is the place to be. It is a soothing destination; Rabat is the place to be. It is a peaceful town located in Morocco and full of amazing little spots and activities. The temperatures go no lower than 20°C (68°F) all year round, the town has good transportation access, and clean streets. So, put Rabat on your list for 2020.

The British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands have suffered terribly from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which has meant that they have also experienced a huge loss in tourism too. However, over the past two years, there has been extensive hotel renovations and reopenings, and these islands are bouncing back better than ever. Oil Nut Bay relaunched last year and is spread across 300 acres on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda. The islands have also called on ‘voluntourists’ to help plant vital, life-giving vegetation. The communities have worked hard to rebuild their islands and homes and will soon be rewarded with plenty of tourists who will continue to help them get back on their feet. 

Quingdao, China
Qingdao is on China’s Yellow Sea coast and often tops lists for liveability as it is home to leafy parks, well-trodden boardwalks, and alluring hiking trails. However, Qingdao is about to get even greener as 2020 will see the arrival of the new China Eden, the first of its kind outside of the UK. The project is being constructed on a large part of environmentally damaged and reclaimed land at the confluence of two rivers. This land was originally used for salt production and prawn farming. The project is set to be themed around water and will have the world’s highest indoor waterfall at its center, plunging from 164ft up, the same height as Niagara Falls. It sounds like it might be worth a visit.
