Every year I receive the Kuoni Worldwide Travel Report, which shares lots of fascinating insights about the travel industry for the year ahead. The 2020 report just came through, so I thought I would share the Top 10 Best Selling Destinations for 2020, as reported by Kuoni. I was amazed and felt a little smug when I realised I have already visited all of the Top 10 travel destinations for 2020, which means my blog has also covered all the most popular destinations for 2020! But I also thought the list may come in handy for any of you looking for some 2020 travel inspiration. I have linked to one of my blog posts under each destination, in case you fancy some extra Travelista reading on that place.
