Our Top 5 Travel Destinations for 2020

1. Nusa Penida

First up on Our Top 5 Travel Destinations for 2020 is Nusa Penida, a magical island just off the coast of Bali, Indonesia.

We recently spent a week on the island and had an absolutely sensational time!

From navigating the VERY bumpy roads to seeing the most breathtaking views, Nusa Penida offers a spark of excitement to almost any type of traveller.

Why Visit?

The island is still very new to tourism and therefore you can still explore the island without being overwhelmed by the number of people visiting! This same fact means that costs are still extremely low.

There are also very few destinations that have so many amazing attractions in one spot!

Best Time to Visit?

The best time to visit is between May – September as these are the dry months and you won’t get rained out. We visited in July and the weather was perfect. You just need to keep an eye out for the sea and tides when visiting the attractions. During high tide, you won’t be able to experience all of Nusa Penida’s wonders.

Here’s a complete itinerary of every attraction on Nusa Penida and in what order to do them!

2. Bali

While we are talking about Indonesia, our next recommended destination is Bali! More specifically Ubud…

Bali is the ultimate bucket list destination for most people and we can understand why! We ended up staying in Ubud for two months!

Why Visit?

They have it all: the magnificent waterfalls cascading down from the tropical rainforests, the unique temples that have been overgrown with moss, the culture, the rows of tumbling rice terraces and the diverse cuisine.

Best Time to Visit?

The best time to visit would be between April – September as they are in their dry season. However, many people flock to Bali during high season, which is roughly around July – August. We recommend going just before the high season as the prices are lower and the weather is good. We visited for June & July.

3. Thailand

Next up on the list is Thailand! Of course we had to add this to the list. Besides the fact that Thailand is our second home, there are so many undiscovered places that need to be seen.

Why Visit?

Thailand is known as the land of smiles and is so for good reason! As soon as you land you are greeted by the friendliest people, the diverse and magnificent culture, delicious foods, tropical island getaways, rainforests, lakes, seaside towns, and affordable prices!

Not to mention that there are so many hidden gems still to be discovered. Forget about Phuket, have you heard of Phattalung?

Best Time to Visit?

The best time to travel Thailand would be from November to early April. These months are their dry and hot seasons.

4. Philippines

The Philippines, a country that is beginning to get a lot of attention recently and for good reason! With islands like Cebu, Palawan and El Nido making it onto our travel radar, we are sure to make the journey back to the Philippines again and again.

Why Visit?

We recently made the trip to Manila, the country’s capital city and wow, what a culture overload! The city is a fusion between old Spanish with the current Asian influence. They have everything from highrise buildings to old Catholic churches, streetside markets to five-star rooftop restaurants, but we primarily recommend exploring their walled city “Intramuros“.

The Best Time to Visit?

Again, the Philippines is a Southeast Asian country and the best times would be from November – April. We visited in July and experienced the heat! Bring along some sunblock…

We also experienced almost being stuck there! But that’s a story for another time.

Yip, another travel guide ready and waiting!

5. Egypt

Egypt, a land famous for its golden sand dunes, ancient treasures, fascinating history, and unequaled architecture. This country is very much still on our bucket list.

Why Visit?

Who wouldn’t want to take in the history of the old pyramids of Giza, gazing upon the miles of open sand dunes, checking out museum after museum and eating delicious local cuisine while admiring the famous Nile river?

Best Time to Visit?

We suggest (and planned on, before Covid-19) visiting around September. This is Egypt’s autumn season so it should be a little cooler than their blistering hot summer months and tourist season isn’t in full swing yet.

We hope Our Top 5 Travel Destinations for 2020 is enough to keep you dreaming about warm, summer, tropical getaways during the winter season. Any of these made it onto your list? Did we miss one? Let us know!
