We’ve entered the new decade with a new mind-set – now it’s not so much about where you travel and how many Instagram posts you do while at it, but who you are while travelling and what impact you make. More and more travellers are interested in sustainability and opt for trips that mean something, especially given all the recent climate-change headlines and nature disasters. Here are 2020’s top travel trends that will hit it big in the new year.
Now it’s not at all that prestigious to get on a long-haul flight and travel to the other corner of the world. Yes, beginner travellers still like to go as far as possible, but more experienced ladies and gents are rediscovering their surroundings as they go on microcations – vacations that are cheaper, quicker, and much sweeter than a pricey trip to a faraway land. There is no jetlag, you don’t spend as much money, and there is no ocean between you and home with hours upon hours of flight. Travelling to nearby destinations can be just as exciting!
The greener the hotel, the better! Experts reveal that more and more travellers explore properties with a focus on sustainability, proper use of natural resources, and honest recycling. Great example is Islas Secas, a Panama’s eco-resort that is powered via solar energy only.
