The top trending destinations of 2020


These destinations are having a moment. Travel searches to these cities have significantly increased since last year, so get them on your radar.

No. 1 Tokyo

Time your visit well. The heat and humidity in such a huge city can be overwhelming in July and August. The best time to see the stunning cherry blossom is the springtime, when it's also much cooler.

No. 2 Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Think beyond the sun and sand. Worldwide, the Carnival de Santa Cruz in February is second only to Rio de Janeiro and is so important it's being considered for UNESCO World Heritage status.

No. 3 Orlando

Look beyond the famous parks. Check out an NBA game at the Orlando Magic's home, the Amway Center, or indulge your love of the aesthetic at the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art.

No. 4 Faro

Look inward, not just out to sea. The Old Town of Faro in particular is charming, with beautiful churches, tree-lined squares and cobbled streets inside the city walls. Often undeservedly overlooked.

No. 5 Alicante

Drag yourself off the beach for a day to check out the Castillo de Santa Bárbara. This 16th-century fortress overlooks the town, offers some breathtaking views and is worth a visit in its own right.

No. 6 Palma de Mallorca

It's much more crowded, and accommodation is much more expensive, in high season. Think about May-June, or September, for good weather but fewer people and lower prices.

No. 7 Dalaman

The ghost town of Kayaköy may not be everybody's idea of a holiday jaunt but, abandoned in the 1920s, it stands eerie and crumbling as a museum and monument. It’s well worth a visit.

No. 8 Paphos

If you're interested in the ancient ruins, do a bit of research before you plan what you're going to see. With so many around, it pays to arm yourself with information beforehand.
