TripAdvisor reveals the top travel destinations for 2020 – and Ipswich is on the list – The Sun

TRIPADVISOR has revealed the top destinations to travel in the world in 2020 – with Ipswich making the cut.

The small town joins other beautiful locations such as Laz Paz in Mexico and Tangier in Morocco to be one to watch this year.

Using an algorithm, TripAdvisor have determined the up and coming destinations looking at reviews for accommodation, restaurants and attractions, as well as increases in booking interests and searches.

The 'save' feature on TripAdvisor was also used to suggest emerging destinations of popularity.

Named as Global Emerging Destination, Ipswich is the only UK destination to make the world winning list.

According to TripAdvisor, the town is popular thanks to its "historical charm" as well as the "ever-growing list of theatres and dance houses".

Destinations in Europe include Naoussa, a small fishing village in Greece, along with Rugan Island in Germany and the town of Monopoli in Italy.

Ile d'Oleron, an island in France, Cala d'Or resort in Spain and Alvor in the Algarve all made the list too.

The number one destination is Kaliningrad in Russia, found between Poland and Lithuania.

The travel website claimed more travellers are interested in the Russian region due to an easier e-visa process when travelling to the country, as well as its blend of Russian and Eastern Europe influences.

TripAdvisor also revealed the top trending destinations around the world, with Edinburgh the only UK destination.

Other popular destinations include Fuerteventura in Spain, Vienna in Austria and Chiang Mai in Thailand.

Emma Shaw, a TripAdvisor spokesperson, said: "Based on TripAdvisor reviews, ratings, and opinions from millions of travellers around the world, the winners highlight the destinations that should be on your travel radar now."
