Holiday-ing is always fun, but planning the deets can be more than enough to change your mind about taking the trip. From crafting the itinerary, figuring out expenses, and even thinking about where to visit, trip-planning takes a lot of work.
Travelling to mainstream places are fun, but Airbnb’s booking data shows that more and more people are becoming interested in lesser known, eco-conscious cities and countries. Trending spots also include cities and regions with big events like the 2020 Mars Exploration Program launching from Cape Canaveral and the surf competitions happening in Ubatuba, Brazil.
Airbnb started off the list of 20 places to visit this year with Milwaukee, WI, US. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, this place is full of culture, history and amazing views. Bilbao, Spain is next, with its lively dining scene, stunning architecture, and beautiful cityscapes. To top it off, it’s also one of the cities hosting Europe’s favourite soccer competition! Moving closer to home, Buriram, Thailand, takes the next spot. This rural province houses Thailand’s treasured Khmer relics, with the Phanom Rung complex (as beautiful as Cambodia’s popular Angkor Wat) as its most well-known monument. March 2020 will also see MotoGP being hosted here!
Other suggested places include Sunbury in Australia, Romania, Xi’an in China, Eugene in US, Luxembourg, Guadalajara in Mexico, Vanuatu, Cali in Colombia, Netherlands and Scotland. Take your pick of these places for authentic, rural, and sustainable adventures accompanied by beautiful landscapes.
