We are heading towards the end of the year and there are people already set the budget for next year’s holidays. If you are one of those who like to plan everything in advance and would like to know the most beautiful places in the world to visit, you should be aware that in 2020 there are travel destinations to avoid.
#1 – Barcelona, Spain
The city of Barcelona, Spain, is one of the destinations to avoid for the year 2020 and this is due to the over-tourism in the region. Airbnb has helped tourists to stay closer to urban centers and major city attractions.
However, with the excessive tourism in the Catalan city, room rental prices for local people are too high, which are destroying their communities – the resident population in these places has been drastically declining in recent years and the worst is feared for years to come.
The online booking websites help tourists to plan their trips (there are even last minute travel deals that are great options for their wallet) and Barcelona is always researched thanks to its cultural offerings.
There you can find great tourist attractions such as AntoniGaudí’sSagradaFamilia, Park Güell, the Ramblas, the Barcelona FC stadium, among other tourist places of interest.
However, they are all in residential areas and have no more room to grow and accommodate more tourists (which turns out to be quite uncomfortable). For these reasons, despite being one of the best places to travel, Barcelona should not be on the list of cities to visit next year.
#2 – Bali, Indonesia

The island of Bali, Indonesia, one of the most heavenly places on earth, is one of the top 10 most beautiful places to visit before you die, but you should not do it next year. This is for the same reason why you should not visit Barcelona either: over-tourism.
The region is paying the price of its own popularity that every year captivates the attention of the many tourists from around the world.
