Now that the year 2020 is in the rearview mirror, the concept of travel is more precious – and compelling – than ever before. Travelers ready to make up for lost time and get back out there will find a world waiting to greet them. Whether you are an inveterate hiker looking to blaze new trails or a venturesome foodie in search of one glorious meal after another, we have ideas for your next amazing trip. 

For hikers and trekkers

Traverse the world’s most dazzling landscapes.

Mount Kilimanjaro

Shooting nearly 20,000 feet in the air, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak and among the continent’s most epic sites. “Kili” demands healthy lungs and legs, though it is accessible to anyone with a sense of determination and an adventurous spirit.

Five- to twelve-day treks take hikers through the banana- and yam-farming croplands of the lower slopes to lush tropical forest to misty heath and moorlands to alpine desert to – finally – the glacier-topped Arctic ice cap of the summit. Travelers looking for something extraordinary will find it here.

Discover Mount Kilimanjaro

Nepal

A true wonderland for trekking enthusiasts, the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal holds spectacular mountain terrain. The country contains hundreds of ice-clad behemoths – the most famous of course being 29,000-foot Mount Everest (Sagarmatha), the highest mountain on earth. Even if you are not a serious summiteer, the diverse country offers protected forests and national parks filled with approachable hiking and incredible wildlife. And all travelers will appreciate Nepal's resplendent temples, grand palaces, and enchanting capital of Kathmandu, sitting in a basin of staggering mountains.

Hike Nepal

South Africa

From beginner-friendly trails through grasslands to rigorous multi-day journeys, South Africa brims with hiking routes for all levels. Not to be missed is the magnificent Table Mountain, a natural wonder commanding unreal views of Cape Town and the Atlantic. Table Mountain National Park’s 15 miles of hiking trails begin at intermediate and go all the way up to expert-only, but there is also a cableway to whisk visitors to the top. Want to combine trekking with wildlife? Several tours of Kruger National Park guide visitors through wilderness trails on foot, allowing them to get up close to elephants, giraffes, hippos, zebras, and more.

For beach lovers

For many travelers, there is no greater sight or sound than teal waters lapping on pale, palm-fringed sands.

Zanzibar

About 25 miles off the coast of Tanzania, the sun-soaked Zanzibar archipelago is one of the world’s great beach destinations. Zanzibar’s sands are powdery soft and shockingly white and its waters clean and crystal-clear. That clarity means snorkelers have incredible visibility of the moray eels, lion fish, and stingrays. The main island, Unguja (often called Zanzibar Island or even just Zanzibar), is home to famously beautiful miles-long Nungwi Beach, the Maldives-like Nakupenda sandbank, and historic Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with mosques, bazaars, and winding streets. 

Escape to Zanzibar

Maldives

The 1,000-plus tiny islands that form the Maldives fall into the “must be seen to be believed” bucket. The postcard-perfect destination delivers true seclusion and pristine tropical-island scenery in the Indian Ocean. The Maldives’ fantastically clear waters and pure white-sand beaches merit all the renown they receive. Below the water’s surface is a wonder world of sea turtles, nurse and whale sharks, and other aquatic creatures. On top of dive and snorkel trips with perfect visibility, visitors can kayak, canoe, fish, and even surf the Maldives’ variety of uncrowded waves and breaks (July and August bring the biggest swells). 

Unwind in the Maldives

Phuket

Phuket is one of Thailand’s star attractions, pulling in visitors with temples, luxury villas, and – above all – jaw-dropping beaches. Towering rock formations make dramatic backdrops for Phuket’s sparkling Andaman Sea shores. Thailand’s largest island, Phuket is blessed with dozens of beaches, so whether you are looking for high energy (Patong) or total tranquility (Bang Tao), there is a beach for every mood. Swim in the clear waters, enjoy a seaside massage, and feast on fresh seafood. Phuket is within easy day-trip reach of the famously beautiful Phi Phi and Similan island groups, as well as Ao Phang Nga and its astonishing limestone cliffs.

Experience Phuket

For animal lovers

Experience extraordinary encounters on unforgettable jungle treks or in wildlife-protecting national parks.

Kenya

Want to see the Big Five: elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and buffalo? The world-famous Masai Mara – the northern arm of Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains – in Kenya is the greatest gathering of wildlife on the planet. Endless stretch of acacia-flecked savannah, dependable rains, and wide-open grasslands make this the stomping ground of millions of migrating zebras, wildebeest, impalas, elephants, and giraffes – and the cheetahs, crocodiles, and other predators who hungrily pursue them. Head to Amboseli National Park to for the stunning site of big animals roaming near Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest free-standing mountain on earth. 

Be amazed by Kenya

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka’s many national parks, forest reserves, and sun-toasted beaches are hotbeds for biodiversity. Ride jeeps through Udawalawe and Minneriya national parks to see elephants and Sri Lankan leopards. Follow a wildlife tracker through the Sinharaja rainforest to spot endemic critters like purple-faced leaf monkeys. Take a Yala National Park safari to get up close to water buffalo and other amazing animals; you will also see Buddhist temple ruins rife with legends. Board a double-outrigger for a chance to witness blue whales, dolphins, and whale sharks at home in Sri Lanka’s sapphire waters. 

Venture to Sri Lanka

Uganda

The rolling plains of the savannah give way to Uganda’s dense primeval forests, snow-capped mountains, and mighty alpine lakes. About half of the world’s highly endangered mountain gorillas dwell in the lush jungle of Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Tracking the magnificent creatures through their natural habitat is one of the great African travel experiences. Add Murchison Falls National Park (aka Kabalega National Park) to the itinerary for a Ugandan safari spotting hippos, elephants, lions, and crocodiles. One of the park’s most popular nature trails shows the River Nile rolling through a narrow gorge before diving 140 feet.

For foodies

Sample the astonishing diversity of world cuisine.

Bangkok

Without question, Bangkok is a feast for the stomach (and the senses). The city’s food culture spans sidewalk stands selling tiny green pandan pancakes to elegant Michelin-starred restaurants with a place on World’s Best lists. The contrast is part of the fun, yet it’s the quick, cheap and ubiquitous street bites like pan-fried noodles and curried pork skewers that are quintessential Bangkok eating. No matter the venue – street cart or fine-dining destination serving multicourse feasts – Thai food collides spicy, sweet, salty, and sour flavors to create mouthfuls that are intense and unforgettable. 

Taste Bangkok

Lebanon

In Lebanon, a rich and complex culinary heritage joins awe-inspiring archeological sites and gorgeous Mediterranean Sea locales. Found through the ancient cities and rugged countryside are wonderfully fragrant dishes, such as lemony tabbouleh, sumac-scented fattoush (tomato and pita salad), and the national dish of kibbe (football-shaped savory snacks filled with meat, onion, and cracked bulgur wheat). In Lebanon’s coastal ports, boats haul in fresh snapper, bream, shrimp, and other local seafood, which is often served with buttery basmati rice.

Feast in Lebanon

Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur’s food scene is a whirlwind of sounds, aromas, colors, and flavors. Across the Malaysian super-city – in its food stalls, rooftop hot spots, and iconic night market – are the most exciting and extraordinary things to eat. Hit the streets and join the long lines of locals waiting for specialties like soft muah chee (peanut mochi) at Madam Tong’s Stall in Chinatown, rice porridge from Hon Kee in the city center, and curry noodles from the Madras Lane Petaling Street wet market. Nearby is the Central Market Kuala Lumpur, which dates from 1888 and is today a true KL landmark and a hub for enthralling Malaysian flavors.
