Travel Highlights for 2020

The Christmas break is over, and everyone is back to work. Thoughts are already on where to go away this year to get us through the next few months. So, what are the holiday hotspots of 2020?

If you are looking for somewhere different, then why not try Bhutan? This piece of Himalayan paradise gives visitors the chance to explore the environment, mountain trails and natural beauty. It is unspoilt due to the high daily fee it charges visitors as it operates a strict high value low impact tourism policy. However, if you are prepared to pay, then you can take advantage of the peace and quiet as it won’t be full of crowds.

North Macedonia is on the list this year. It has everything from nature, dramatic peaks, amazing culture, ancient traditions and is a delight for foodies to visit. Mediterranean influences have mixed with local specialities offering excellent culinary experiences for travellers. Located in the heart of the Balkans it is definitely a place which has lots to do for the traveller who is looking for adventure.

Sample the delights of Morocco. Whether you are looking for a beach or a city break, Morocco offers everything from rich heritage and colourful culture to beautiful beaches and wellness retreats. Marrakesh will also be crowned Africa’s Capital of Culture in 2020 and has been awarded because of its architectural, artistic and cultural legacy. The country is improving its infrastructure and revamping a number of medinas and has seen the number of tourist visitors rise over the last couple of years. Despite our weather, holidaying in England is definitely a must do. England has some of the most breathtaking coastlines to enjoy leisurely walks and stunning scenery. Dramatic skylines can be seen up in Northumberland. Take a trip to the historic island of Lindisfarne or visit the impressive Bamburgh Castle. Head down to Yorkshire and Whitby and the fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay. Take in a ghost walk and hear about the history of the village. England wouldn’t be England without a cream tea. With quaint and picturesque villages in Devon and Cornwall, there’s never a shortage of tea rooms and beautiful beaches to boot.

Swaziland is packed full of culture, adventures and wildlife and is one of the most underrated places to visit. The country has invested in a new international airport and improved road infrastructure with the aim to increase visitors to the country over the next few years. With lots of adventures from zip lining, white water rafting to amazing safaris, this will be one place you’re sure never to forget.

Make 2020 the year to travel to extraordinary places, making unforgettable memories.
