Cruises along the Douro River are one of Travel+Leisure magazine's highlights for 2020.

The Douro River in Portugal is one of the 50 world destinations to discover in 2020, according to Travel+Leisure magazine.

Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa, tops Travel+Leisure magazine's list of 50 destinations for 2020. The renowned travel magazine's list includes places such as Asheville (North Carolina), Barbados, Beijing, and Botswana.

Portugal remains on the radar of international tourism. For 2020 the magazine has chosen Douro, which ranks 18th on the list. "Portugal remains a popular haven - and in 2020 the proposal is to experience it from the water." The magazine focuses on cruises along the Douro River, including new proposals by Viking River Cruises, AmaWaterways, Tauck and Uniworld, and mentions two wine tourism estates (PortalandSeixo ) set in the unique scenery of the Upper Douro Wine Region, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001.

The Portugal section ends with accommodation suggestions in Porto, again focusing on more recent projects such as Le Monumental Palace and Torel 1884.

Besides Addis Ababa, which ranked first, the top ten comprises Arequipa (Peru), Asheville (North Carolina, US), Austria, Baja Sur Eastern Cape (Mexico), Barbados, Beijing (China), Big Island (Hawaii), Botswana, and Boston (US).
