10 travel destinations to visit in 2020

If you really want to go off-grid in 2020, Mongolia is the destination for you. After exploring the capital Ulaanbaatar, set off into the Gobi Desert, starting off with a stay at Three Camel Lodge (which definitely has more than a trio of ungulates, since they’re still one of the preferred modes of transport around here). At this set of traditional gers (felt and canvas tents, favoured by the country’s nomadic herders), guests can ride horses and camels across the desert dunes, track dinosaur fossils and hike through the spectacular scenery. Scott Dunn has itineraries that will take you to where few have gone before you: to the Naadam festivals celebrated in the capital and in nomadic communities, where you’ll watch people compete in archery, wrestling and horse-riding.
