Summer, autumn, winter and spring, there’s always a perfect time to jet off this year!

Whether you’re travelling solo or planning a family holiday, here are the five best places to visit in 2020.

1. Dubai, UAE

From skyscrapers galore to ‘mega malls’ and a thriving foodie scene, Dubai is the place to be!

Love to shop? You’ve come to the right place! Dubai is home to the world’s biggest shopping centre, Dubai Mall. People travel from far and wide to indulge in retail therapy and visit the incredible attractions built into their shopping centres.

With such a diverse population, the food in Dubai is unlike no other. With hundreds of Arab-Persian-Indian-Pakistani-Filipino-French-Japanese-Chinese-British, and American restaurants, both humble and high-end, there’s something for everyone!

2. Vancouver, Canada


Breathtaking nature, friendly locals, beautiful sights – Vancouver has it all!

It’s safe to say that the most picturesque city in the world is Vancouver. If you’re looking for the perfect sightseeing excursion, look no further than the North Shore Mountains.

In winter, you’ll see the mountain’s sharp peaks covered in glistening snow!

During summertime, hike the trails in Lynn Canyon, get sweaty climbing up Grouse Mountain, or conquer The Chief near Squamish.

There are endless possibilities in Vancouver whatever the season!

3. Galway, Ireland


Bohemian-styled Galway is arguably Ireland’s most engaging city.

Brightly painted pubs heave with live music and cafes, offering front-row seats to watch buskers perform.

Seafood lovers, rejoice! This cuisine reigns in Galway. Various tours offer a taste of the city’s best artisans, purveyors and dining highlights.

Galway is a city like no other (and it’s only a two hour drive from Dublin)!

4. Kyushu, Japan

For those unfamiliar with Kyushu, it is the third largest of Japan’s five main islands, and offers stunning scenery, top eats and plenty of cultural attractions.


With the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympics commencing on 24 July, there’s no better time to visit Japan!

5. New York, USA

“Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today…”

Explore the richness of all five boroughs, see some of the world’s best museums and art galleries, give your regards to Broadway, stand in awe of the skyscrapers, and get your fill of international and experimental food!

Everybody has to visit New York at least once in their life, and make 2020 the year you finally set sail!
