Airbnb reveals its most sought-after stays of 2020 with a Brazilian seaside villa taking in the number one spot
It shouldn't come as a surprise that 2020 saw a decline in international travel due to the pandemic with figures regressed to the level of 30 years ago according to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). As a result, travel enthusiasts could only resort to adding their dream destinations to their wish list or travel virtually through an online experience until travel is back again. Airbnb unveils its 2020 top dream homes on traveller's wishlist, offering a glimpse into their go-to destinations when international tourism recovers.
In a nutshell, 2020's most wishlisted stays are still in line with tourism trends of recent years—travellers have a higher inclination to explore rural areas and non-traditional tourism spots, hoping for an authentic and unique experience of the local culture. Among the most wishlisted stays include serene mountains, forests and coastlines off the beaten track. Below are the top 10 most wishlisted stays on Airbnb.
