Check out our checklist of the 10 best destinations to fly in 2020.
1. The Balkan Peninsula
We all think that Europe is costly, but I beg you to disagree. Traveling across Europe doesn’t have to cost you your arm, your leg, and maybe your kidney. If you want to see Europe on a budget, I would suggest visiting the Balkan Peninsula. Croatia is by far the most popular Balkan country and can be costly, so that I would recommend beginning a trip around the Balkan Peninsula in Herceg Novi, Montenegro. Through there, you will reach the border and catch a flight to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
2. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
If there’s ever been a potential metropolis, it’s Dubai — this vast desert city features lavish hotels, expansive malls, and even the tallest building in the world. Besides, Dubai will witness the first World Expo to be held in the Middle East in 2020, with over 190 countries taking part in showcasing their innovations in infrastructure and transport.
3. Bali, Indonesia
You will find beaches, volcanoes, Komodo dragons, and jungles that shelter elephants, orangutans, and tigers. It’s heaven, essentially. You’ve probably seen a picture of Bali on social media at least once in the last seven days, as it’s such a famous 2020 bucket list destination.
4. San Antonio, Texas, the United States of America
If you’re searching for Tex-Mex or authentic Mexican cuisine, San Antonio has it. They will be on the move from Houston to San Antonio for the weekend until my father could manage overseas destinations. We also had an enthusiasm, from strolling down the River Walk to looking for adrenaline at the Texas Six Flags Fiesta. There are also other famous places to explore, such as the cathedral of San Fernando, which holds no charge night light displays.
When you’re planning to visit San Antonio over the summer, make sure to walk around the Pearl Brewery farmer’s market. Since graduation from college, I spent two years living in San Antonio, and the Pearl Brewery became the first destination of my out-of-town tourists.
5. Agra, India
Home to the Taj Mahal, Agra is on the list of many tourists. And while the entrance costs about $50, the surrounding area is relatively inexpensive.
It’s a popular destination, so you’ll probably go in the morning if you want to shoot the Taj Mahal. Considered a masterpiece of Islamic art in India, Emperor Shah Jahan designed it as a mausoleum for his wife – perhaps one of the most significant declarations of love in the world.
Zanzibar is one of my beloved destinations today! I am completely in love with the ocean and the people there. Zanzibaris are so lovely and entertaining. Although there are pricey resorts, you can also find cheap hotel & breakfasts and hostels in Stone Town, which encourage you to be right next to the Indian Ocean, where all the restaurants and fun is.
7. George Town, Penang, Malaysia
George Town is one of many cities that has caught me by surprise. A last-minute travel dates shift took me to George Town for what I was expecting to be a two-day trip. This soon turned out to be two weeks.
A combination of races, cuisines, and architecture come together to form an environment that is not meant to function on paper but somehow does. Chinese, Indian, Malay and British roots can be seen at any step that you render in this Penang Island UNESCO World Heritage Site. That makes George Town stand out are the quarters that make up the area, each possessing a distinct culture and background, all tied together by the stunning street art found in the region.
8. Moscow, Russia
Moscow, like the rest of Russia, has the misconception that it is a cold place. That is valid in the winter months, with temperatures far below zero degrees Celsius. Yet the winter break is one of the most significant periods to explore due to the fairytale atmosphere that the snow lying makes. In the season, you can anticipate constant sunlight and blue sky so that you can put your sunglasses on, find a blindfold and walk about the Red Square with ease.
9. Taipei, Taiwan
Taiwan’s capital is rising in importance in East Asia, but the people are still ignorant of it. Compared to Hong Kong or Tokyo, Japan, think of Taipei as the quieter kid on the street. With some of the most excellent food markets in Asia, bustling shopping districts like Xiamen, and the beautiful neighboring Yangminshan National Park, Taipei promises everything for everybody.
Serbia is one of the best-hidden secrets in Europe. It’s one of those locations that has such a great aura that it leaves you seeking more.
There is something new every hour of the day in the busy city of Belgrade. The avenues are full of beautiful shops, trendy cafés, pubs, and clubs. Friendly people are still out walking around. You can see citizens of all ages loving outdoor cafes and consuming rakija (Serbia’s national drink). Restaurants have a fantastic blend of local and foreign recipes and are perfect for trying new recipes.
The nightlife in Serbia is one of its nature. There are floating bars and dances near the shores of the Danube. The Parties will proceed until the early morning hours.
