They are the best of the best. They are destinations overlooked by most travelers or family hotspots that offer new reasons to return. They are the best in Lonely Planet travel for 2020.
We ask everyone from our writers and editors to our online family of social media influencers, and amid fierce debate, our panel of travel experts narrows the list down to just 10 countries, 10 regions, 10 cities and 10 destinations with the best value. Each one is chosen for its actuality, unique experiences and “wow” factor. We also take sustainable travel seriously, helping you make a positive impact wherever you choose to go. This year’s list includes everything from Bhutan’s enchanting monasteries to coastal walks and seafood shacks in Maine.
So, what are you waiting for? We are going to explore.
Traveling gives us many amazing experiences, but perhaps less obvious is the effect that our trips have on the places and people we visit. At Travel Well, we explore how sustainable travel can be a beneficial force for everyone involved: good for the environment, for the local population, and for ourselves.
