Made any travel plans for 2020 yet? We’ve been talking to you, other experts, and researching various trends to predict where on earth you may be inspired to visit next year. I hope our annual Travel Hot List (p64) will give you plenty of ideas to really start dreaming. We also feature three of the destinations from last year’s list: I got to visit beautiful Georgia, taking a bunch of lovely readers with me (p96); Simon Broughton went to Colombia to explore incredible San Agustín (p136); while Mark Stratton saw if he could break his tiger curse in India (p46). And knowing that the Arctic features on so many of your Hot Lists we hear from Juliet Rix on remarkable Wrangel Island (p116). If you want to visit Georgia yourself, or join…

Juliet Rix Wrangel Island Journalist Juliet knows how lucky she is to have made several trips to the polar regions. But on p116, she takes us with her – on an expedition to the remote Wrangel island, in hard-to-access Russian territory… What’s hot in 2020? “I’m planning to get some sun!

Anne Vaughan, via email Hoi An adventure After reading about Vietnam in a number of issues of Wanderlust, I finally travelled there. We had visited eleven years ago and decided to return but to different places. We…
