The 25 Travel Destinations You Need To Visit in 2020

2019 was an incredible year for travelers. As I blogged my method around the world, I detected from many travelers United Nations agency were conjointly following their own path, where it’s going to lead. In 2019 you told Pine Tree State that you just explored off-the-beaten-path destinations, reducing your carbon footprint, living sort of a native and creating authentic connections on the method.

Could 2020 possibly be any better?

Unquestionably, yes!

Once again, I consulted the internet’s top astrologers, who carefully analyzed thousands of comet trajectories and cloud formations. They combined this data with information collected through a wide variety of tea-leaf and palm readings to get a complete picture of the year ahead. Together, we carefully carved your 2020 travel horoscope into a globe-shaped stone (so, a sphere?) and tossed it into the deepest depths of the sea.
just kidding.

Once again, I asked twelve travel bloggers – one representing each sign of the zodiac – to have a little fun.  Everyone shared one one of their absolute favorite travel destinations and outlined exactly what makes that place resonate with other travelers who share their star sign. In a way, we really did create your 2020 travel horoscope, although it’s based more on where you’ll find affordable boutique hotels than on what was revealed in our crystal ball.

2020 Dream Destination for Aries Travelers: Swakopmund, Namibia

As a fiery, impatient, and adrenaline-addict Aries, Namibia’s Swakopmund is my favorite holiday destination, and my recommendation for Aries travelers in 2020.

Swakopmund lies in notorious Skeleton Coast, where the Namib Desert meets the rough waves of the Atlantic – there’s no shortage of drama here. As a proof, countless shipwrecks dot the hostile coastline and tourists constantly get stuck when challenging their cars in soft sand.

Swakopmund is the adventure capital of Southern Africa, with an exciting array of adrenaline-fueled things to do. You can choose between dune boarding, sky diving, quad biking, surfing, and thrilling horseback rides or 4×4 drives through the desert. If you don’t feel pumped enough, Namibia’s best roastery cafés (Slowtown and Two Beards) and craft gin distilleries (Stillhouse and Copper & Coal) will fuel your flames further. My favorite activities in Swakopmund include nature: photographing Cape fur seals and flamingos, tracking down desert-adapted wildlife on independent 4×4 drives, and climbing the nearby dunes for drastic views over the sand and sea.

The climate in Skeleton Coast is as harsh and unpredictable as the temper of Aries, and weather can change instantly from the dense fog, roaring winds, and stormy skies in the morning to sunny and bright afternoons. To balance the heat of Aries, the climate is pleasantly calm year-round, compared to other Namibian destinations. Summer high temps hover between 23C and 30C. The raging Atlantic remains chilly even in summer months (November to April), so swimming both challenges and soothes flaming Aries.

2020 Dream Destination for Taurus Travelers: Koh Phangan, Thailand

I’m a Taurus, which means I love hanging out in relaxing environments. Koh Phangan, a tiny island in the Gulf of Thailand, is thus one of the best destinations for people of my zodiac sign and one that I intend to keep returning to because the whole island is a perfect little paradise with relaxed people and stunning nature.

Around 90% of Koh Phangan is made up of protected forest! The local hippie community welcomes anyone who’s keen to embrace yoga and mindfulness and spend the days meditating, detoxing and cleansing both the body and mind. Buddhist temples dot the island and provide yet another opportunity to find peace. As well, many of these temples feature stunning views, and there’s even a herbal steam sauna at a temple in the south of the island.

Feeling the soothing power of the ocean when swimming in the turquoise waters, strolling in the powdery white sand for hours on end, gazing in awe at the vivid colors the sky puts on during sunset… that’s how one can enjoy his or her days in Koh Phangan.  Oh, and did I mention that when you need to temporarily wake up from the dream and actually get some work done, there are plenty of coworking spaces and cafés?  Perfect for a hardworking Taurus in 2020!

2020 Dream Destination for Gemini Travelers: Scotland

I’m a Gemini, which means I’m adaptable, outgoing, impulsive and indecisive. Scotland is pretty much the definition of all those things!

First, there’s the wonderful hospitality and friendliness of the people and the incredible scenery… and then there’s the weather. Let’s just call it unreliable.

One of my favourite things about Scotland is the ability to have it all- you can be in the middle of nowhere for breakfast, up a mountain for lunch and in the middle of a city enjoying the nightlife by dinner. It’s a complete contradiction in every sense- and that’s part of the fun.

A Scotland road trip is by far the best way for a Gemini in 2020 to see this incredible country. Having a car, or even a camper, allows you to see places what tours just don’t go. Even if you only get to the Highlands for a few days, it’s definitely worth the trip. No matter how long you have, plan your Scotland Itinerary carefully so you see a little bit of everything this beautiful country has to offer. Just make sure to pack sunglasses and a coat.

2020 Dream Destination for Cancer Travelers: Puglia, Italy

Usually I don’t choose my holiday destinations thinking at my sign, but maybe also this has something to do with the fact that I instantly love certain places. I am Cancer, a water sign, so I like history, old places, good food and of course, water.

When I decided to visit Puglia, Italy, I didn’t realise this region would have it all. We stayed in Bari to explore the whole area and we enjoyed it very much once we discovered its historichal center so near to the sea. Every day we went to another city. One by one we visited Ostuni, the white city, Alberobelo, a village that seems built by the dwarfs, Polignano a Mare and Monopoli, two historical cities built on the seashore and Matera, the third-oldest continually-inhabited city in the world. These city days were combined with long walks on the beautiful beaches. There are not many sandy beaches near Bari, but because of the stones, the water is turquoise-green and very clear.

Since all Cancers are gourmands, a destination must have good food in order to attract them. Italian food is delicious anyway, but the one in Puglia was a real discovery: seafood orecchiette with a garlic flavour, creamy tiramisu and amazing coffee. I couldn’t ask for more, and recommend it for every Cancer to visit in 2020!
