National Geographic Included Kamchatka in the Top 25 Best Travel Destinations
November 26, 2019 16:06


National Geographic magazine has published a ranking of the best travel destinations for 2020. The list includes Kamchatka and Belovezhskaya Pushcha.

National Geographic magazine has compiled a list of the best destinations for those planning a trip in 2020. The list includes one Russian tourist destination - the Kamchatka Peninsula. The authors of the rating recommend to go there for the sake of the opportunity to jump through the "ring of fire". It is a chain of volcanoes and seismically active objects along the Pacific Ocean.  Magazine recommends traveling to the peninsula in August or September. It became more affordable with the development of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky airport, National Geographic emphasizes.

National Geographic also offers a trip to Belovezhskaya Pushcha, a nature reserve located in Belarus and Poland. The magazine calls it "one of the last truly wild places in Europe."

In addition, the city of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which served as the border point of the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century and was rebuilt after the destruction of the Balkan wars, was included in the list. The rating includes the Chinese province of Guizhou - one of the most isolated regions of the countries. According to National Geographic, the region is gradually turning into a center of cloud technologies and big data - companies such as Apple and Huawei have opened their offices there. But it’s worth going there for the sake of “timeless villages”, the magazine notes.

The authors chose the Tohoku region of Japan because it will be possible to “escape” from the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. A region where you can see forests, rivers and millennial temples is visited by less than 2% of travelers. “Tohoku should be awarded a gold medal for the most unknown wonderland for travel,”  National Geographic says.

The list also includes the Madeleine islands of Canada, the Abu Simbel rock in Egypt and the city of Philadelphia, which makes it possible to "rediscover the American classics." In addition, the authors advise to look at the baroque art in the Mexican city of Puebla and see the "wild beauty" of Australian Tasmania.
