Virtuoso Traveler’s Travel Planning Issue reveals the top trends and destinations for the year ahead. We’ve looked into the future – and like what we see. Our 2020 forecast calls for hitting honky-tonks in Nashville, seeing Tokyo’s Summer Games in style, getting wild in Rwanda, and exploring the far-flung Faroe Islands. Plan, too, on traveling sustainably, discovering antidotes to overtourism, and getting healthy doses of urban renewal – think digital detox and sleep coaching (yes, that’s a thing) during your next city stay.

Learn what else topped our annual list of where, why, and how to travel in 2020, compiled with the help of Virtuoso advisors and other in-the-know experts. Also inside: next year’s hot new hotels, cruise ships, and museum openings; why we love Alaska in the winter (hint: heavenly light shows); and ten essential gifts for globe-trotters.
