The decorations for Halloween and Christmas haven’t even been purchased, and the key players in tourism have started thinking 2020’s big travel trends. On the basis of the year-to-year rise in reservations in a given location (from October 2018 to October 2019), Airbnb enlisted its 20 hottest (or coolest) trending destinations for next year.
Still in 2020, the US will occupy a place of choice in the hearts of the tourists. According to the projections of Airbnb, Milwaukee will witness a huge rise in popularity, as will Eugene, Oregon, and Florida’s Cape Canaveral. The first two pretenders to the throne may shock few because of their somewhat modest reputations as tourist destinations. However, according to Airbnb, tourists will be drawn more to the lesser-known cities with reputations for being ecologically responsible. Reservations for Milwaukee on the site have seen a 729% rise, while Eugene saw a bump of 213%.
Travelers will continue to select the blockbusters in terms of international tourism, visiting the lesser-known locales, like Thailand’s Buri Ram or Mexico’s Guadalajara. Those who love the slopes might select France’s only representative on the list, the ski resort in Contamines-Montjoie.
However, that doesn’t imply that tried-and-true classics are completely out of the list. Even after the Rugby Cup has packed up and left the Land of the Rising Sun, Tokyo rules as a hot property — as the host of the Olympic Games would naturally be. Airbnb reservations are projected to rise by 103%.
Here are the top 20 trending destinations for 2020 according to Airbnb:
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
Buri Ram, Thailand
Eugene, Oregon, USA
Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA
Courtenay, BC, Canada
Maastricht, The Netherlands
