With the first day of 2020 just a few weeks away, we are already brainstorming where we will want to travel over the next year.
From tropical hotspots to towns brimming with historical significance, there are plenty of fascinating places that we're eager to visit. Luckily for us, Airbnb is helping us narrow down our list of dream vacations by sharing their forecast for the 20 destinations that everyone should visit in 2020.
According to the vacation rental company, 2020's hotspots will "be rooted in a growing interest in lesser known and eco-conscious cities and countries across the world (based on Airbnb booking data)."
"Bilbao’s transformation from rust belt city to flourishing culture hub is truly remarkable.Next year, Bilbao will also become a top destination for sports fans: it’s one of the host cities of Europe’s most beloved soccer competition."
"The rural province of Buriram is home to some of Thailand’s most treasured Khmer relics. Its best known monument is the incredible Phanom Rung complex which is comparable in grandeur to its Cambodian neighbor, Angkor Wat."
"With its pristine hills and ancient rural villages, Romania is the perfect destination for anyone looking for something off-the-beaten-track - plus it has some of the best preserved virgin forests in Europe."
"Guadalajara’s green credentials are also worth noting: the local government has embarked on an initiative that encourages cyclists and pedestrians to reclaim public spaces normally dominated by cars."
"In 20th position is Maastricht, a Dutch city with a wealth of historic buildings — more than any Dutch city outside Amsterdam."
