Armenia Is Top Destination According to Travel Magazine


YEREVAN (Armenpress) — Armenia is once again among the top 2020 tourism destinations, this time in Condé Nast Traveler luxury magazine’s “20 Best Places to Go in 2020” article.

According to Condé Nast Traveler, the list is made by “surveying our well-traveled staff, and then our hyper-connected network of writers based all over the world.”

“Armenia is on its way to being one of next year’s most talked-about destinations, and there’s more to the tiny Caucasus nation than what makes the nightly news (or Kim Kardashian’s semi-regular visits). Ryanair will begin flying to Armenia in 2020, marking the first time a low-cost airline has serviced the country and ringing in a new era for travel there,” the article suggests.

The writer suggests many sights in Yerevan and outside the capital, adding, “The country’s natural wonders are perhaps even more arresting than its man-made ones. Lake Sevan, which engulfs 16 percent of the country, is a magnificent sight against the rugged foothills of the Caucasus Mountains and makes for refreshing dips during the scorching summer months. Off its northern tip is Dilijan National Park, a lush wooded reserve home to lynx, bears, and wolves, where a 50-mile section of the Transcaucasian Trail was bushwhacked into existence last spring to the glee of adventurous hikers.”

Among the other top destinations are Bahia, Brazil; Botswana’s Salt Pans; the Canadian Arctic; Canary Islands, Spain; Copenhagen; Dominica; Dubai; El Chaltén, Argentina; Guyana and others.
