- A total of 13 places worldwide were ranked No by 2020
- They should be avoided due to & # 39; ethical, environmental or political concerns & # 39;
- List 52 destinations worldwide, one for each week of the year
Don't book any getaways for next year yet – at least until you have a look at Fodor's Travel Go and No lists for 2020.
The No list lists destinations that should be avoided due to ethical, environmental or sometimes even political issues and includes Barcelona, Bali, Matterhorn, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary in the USA and Cape Town, South Africa.
The Go list includes 52 destinations – one for each week of the year – and includes Albania, Athens, Spain's Andalusia region, New York City Queens and Faroe Islands.
Fodor's Travel has launched its Go and No lists for 2020. The Florida Keys is on the No list as a place to avoid.
Both lists were selected by Fodor's editorial staff. They started with an initial list of hundreds of destinations that were reduced to the final Go and No lists after several rounds of intense discussion and debate.
A total of 13 posts were placed in the No listings for 2020 and they fall into eight categories.
The first category is called & # 39; places that don't want you (or want you in smaller and better doses) & # 39; and lists places that suffer from & # 39; over tourism & # 39 ;.
This includes Angkor Wat, Cambodia, Big Sur, California, and Hanoi Train Street, Vietnam.
Barcelona is on the No List in the category & # 39; places that do not want you (or want you in smaller, better doses) & # 39;
The Florida Keys and Cozumel Reef National Park in Mexico belong to the category of places with "sick coral reefs that need healing".
The Matterhorn in Switzerland is named as a “ place that can kill you '' as seven climbers lost their lives peaking in 2019.
The locals (rightly) who consider charging big tourist fees & # 39; are Galapágos National Park and Komodo Island in Indonesia.
The guide also recommends that Cape Town be avoided as it is a safe city for tourists but deadly for residents.
The country of Albania is on Fodor's Go travel list for 2020. Pictured is the Bay of Grass in the country.
Meanwhile, in addition to specific destinations, the 2020 No list recommends travelers take a break when considering certain types of places, such as places to be careful about drinking, naming Mexico and Central America and tourist attractions that offer elephant rides.
At the Go listFodor & # 39; s says that destinations are all "must-see spots that should be on every travel enthusiast's list" and that meet a "wide range of travel styles and budgets".
These include the "dramatic scenery" of the Uzbek desert oasis, the "kitschy whim" of Palm Springs, California, the "romantic charm" of Bucharest, and the "haunting beauty of the Namibian skeleton coast."
Fodor & # 39; s says the destinations on its Go list are "must see attractions that should be on every travel enthusiast 's list". One of them is Galway, Ireland, pictured
Other entries include Galway in Ireland, Christchurch in New Zealand, Brisbane in Australia and the Japanese capital Tokyo.
Jeremy Tarr, Fodors.com editorial director, said: “The places on this year's Go List have not only shown extraordinary resilience thanks to the people who always called them home, but are strong in persevering what's to come. .
Ultimately, they are our inspirations for our tomorrows.
& # 39; Every year, we use No List to highlight issues we are thinking about before, during and long after we travel.
“Being featured on the Sem List is hardly a scarlet letter. On the contrary, it is a promise that when Fodor & # 39; s covers the destinations on the list, we will do it responsibly – warts and all.
