1. Rome, Italy
You can’t go wrong with good old Rome. Rome is a great place to vacation any time of the year but 2020 is a little more special. With the city celebrating the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death, the city is going to be teeming with Renaissance art shows and all sorts of events. Not to mention, Rome’s gelato is worth going there any time.
2. Northern Guatemala
With new laser technology being used to discover old Mayan ruins and artifacts, Northern Guatemala is another hotspot for 2020. These Mayan ruins are reminiscent of a treasure hunt of epic proportions, hidden under the canopy of the jungle. With an abundance of culture, Northern Guatemala is a great vacation spot if you want to inundate yourself with the beautiful culture of the city.
3. Dubrovnik, Croatia
The fact that Dubrovnik has the ‘King’s Landing’ is enough for a majority of people to visit the city. However, even those that have never seen an episode of the TV show, Dubrovnik is an attractive pot for a vacation. With beautiful forts and monasteries, and gorgeous architecture, Dubrovnik is one place you can go to relax. However, don’t skip out on all the water sports available.
4. Hydra Island, Greece
A popular getaway for celebrities in the 60s and the 70s, the secluded Hydra Island has made a comeback as a low-key vacation spot. A great alternative to other tourist-favored islands, Hydra Island offers great food and even greater waterfront views. What sets Hydra Island apart is that no vehicles are allowed on the island. The roads are 100% traffic-free and you have to rely on water taxis, your own feet or donkeys to get around.
5. Honolulu, Hawaii
It doesn’t get better than Honolulu. Picture-perfect, the tropical island has great food and tourist spots. You can enjoy the magnificent view of the city, take a tour of the Jurassic Park or visit the Pearl Harbor Memorial. Moreover, the island offers every single water sport ever invented.
6. Marrakech, Morocco
Marrakech can be a tad bit pricey, but once you get there, it is so worth it. With food, culture, and essentially unbeatable shopping experience, the city is rife with bustling markets and beautiful, skinny streets. However, the main attraction is the hidden oases behind some stone walls. Termed as ‘riads’, they are a great place to wind down, have a cup of tea or a swim.
7. Cape Town, South Africa Rounding off the top 7 places to visit in 2020 is Cape Town. With United Airlines offering the first non-stop flight to South Africa, Cape Town will be even easier to visit. Home to colorful shops, great cafes, bars and restaurants, stunning beaches and safari opportunities, Cape Town is a great vacation spot. Be it unwinding at the Franschhoek Wine Tram or the perfect beaches, Cape Town has something for everybody. Not to mention the great view of the whole city from the Table Mountain Cableway.
