These are the top 5 places that you need to travel to in 2020

Many university students love to travel around the world before the realities of working everyday draw ever closer.

The added advantage of university holidays makes it easier to grab a bargain. However, deciding where you want to go can be the most difficult part, but not anymore. Whether city breaks packed with sight-seeing are your thing or you prefer the tranquillity of a beach to ease the stress of university, look no further than this list when contemplating where to travel to in 2020!

1. Porto, Portugal
travel to in 2020

Porto is fast becoming a must-visit destination. Not only does the city offer a variety of beaches to explore when you want to take it easy but it also has plenty to see and do. Take a trip up the Clerigos Tower to give you a spectacular view over the city or visit the book shop that is rumoured to have inspired JK Rowling in writing Harry Potter. Famous for its bridges, a trip along the river is a must-do if you want to make the most out of your visit!

2. Salzburg, Austria
travel to in 2020

Salzburg is the perfect destination if you fancy a winter or Christmas mini-break. Naturally, a Christmas market is a definite must-do if you want to get into the Christmas spirit. The city opens an ice-rink in Mozart Square in the winter months if you fancy taking on the ice! If music is your thing then a visit Mozart's birthplace is essential. If musicals are more your thing then take the time to visit some of The Sound of Music sets scattered across the city.

3. Galway, Ireland

Set to be the European City of Culture in 2020 places Galway firmly on the places to visit in the next year. If you fancy a blustering walk on the beach or want to experience true Irish pub culture then Galway is the place for you. Across the year the city is planning on hosting a variety of events such as a reading of Emily Wilson's translation of the Odyssey, new art by David Best or the annual Oyster Festival—there really is something for everyone in Galway.

4. Ljubljana, Slovenia
travel to in 2020

Slovenia's capital is bustling with university students and green spaces and parks. Taking a trip to the market and exploring or wandering for hours in the Tivoli Park are ways to relax and still take in what the city has to offer. A visit to the Castle up in the hills, the Baroque Cathedral or one of the many bridges littered across the city allows you to explore the history of Ljubjana.

5. Athenian Riviera, Greece

Experts predict this destination is soon to be put on the map as a must-visit so get in there before everybody else does! Public and private beaches are dotted across the coastline with the beautiful view of the ocean stretching out before you. The coastal area is just 20 minutes from Athens so if you get fed up basking in the sun all day and find yourself wanting to explore a bit of history then this Greek area is for you!

So there we have the top five places to visit in 2020 covering city breaks to summer scorchers—there's definitely a destination to travel to in 2020!
