    • Hi Raquel,

      Great picks! The best time to visit India & the Philippines is between Oct and March (avoid the summer and monsoon seasons). If you are okay with the cold then visit Iceland between November and Jan, get your white christmas and see the northern lights!

  1. Hi Tarun, 2 destinations I would love to promote in 2020 are Bhutan and Portugal. I’ve been to Portugal but only covered Lisbon while cities such as Porto and Faro have a lot to offer a paradise for foodies and not too expensive. While Bhutan is opening up for tourists and few of my customers who have traveled to this destination were amazed by the natural beauty of this country.
