If you're already planning your 2020 getaway, make sure to catch a plane ride to only the best countries the new year has to offer. For the Lonely Planet's Best in Travel for 2020 year-end list, the leading travel guide enlisted the help of its writers, editors, and millions of social media followers to vote for the top 10 countries to visit in 2020. The coveted list is based on three factors including topicality, unique experiences and "wow" factor, and the probability of sustainable travel.

On top of the list is the quaint yet lush kingdom of Bhutan. Lonely Planet dubbed the landlocked area as the "real-life Shangri-La," most famous for being the only carbon-negative country in the world. "This tiny piece of Himalayan paradise operates a strict ‘high-value, low-impact’ tourism policy, compelling travelers to pay a high daily fee just to set foot in its pine-scented, monastery-crowned hills," Lonely Planet writes. "The pay-off for visitors is a chance to walk along mountain trails unsullied by litter, in the company of people whose Buddhist beliefs put them uniquely in tune with their environment."

Meanwhile, Salzburg, Austria tops the 10 best cities list, exceptionally lauded for its rich music scene."The Salzburg Festival is turning 100, and this heart-stealer of an Alpine city is singing about it at the top of its voice. One of the world’s greatest classical music shindigs, the festival is always a riotous feast of opera, classical music and drama—and never more so than in 2020," writes the travel guide. "Salzburg will be pulling out all the stops for the centenary, with special exhibitions and events taking place all over the historic centre—concerts, plays, readings, Mozart matinees, you name it."
