With 2020 just around the corner, the hype for the coming of the New Year has only continued to rise. With a whole new beginning for everyone, there is no wonder why people are excited. Things are even more exciting for travelers as they set foot into the New Year, looking at new places to explore, new cities to visit, and new adventures to tackle. For them, the world is a way of life.
Napervilles are lovers of travel, and we know that travelers often have to think about what is new and trending. Being on the peak of technological advance, every year offers newer ways to travel and grander places to visit. The world is a smaller place than in the past, but an ever-expanding selection of places to see
To keep those travel-hungry people up-to-date, Naperville Limousine Tour services have come up with a list of 7 transport trends you need to know on the dawn of 2020
1. Airports are now tummy-friendly
With airports essentially being a world traveler’s 2nd home, it would make sense to make these giant aviation hubs more appealing, especially to traveler bellies. While in the past, airports used to be of great lackluster when it comes to fine dining, the next few years promise a surge of restaurants in airports.
Not willing to wait that long? Look no further than Beijing Daxing International in Beijing, Jewel Terminal in Singapore, and TWA hotel in New York, which already have high-end restaurants to satisfy a king, making the airports ironically a destination themselves.
2. The Adult-Only Cruise
Cruise lovers will surely love the New Year, as it is the year where Richard Branson debuts the first of the adults-only cruise ship of the Virgin Voyages taking its magnificence onto the ocean sometime in 2020. The vessel, named the Scarlet Lady, is the first of her kind and is said to be built to appeal to Generation Y and Z, but any passenger over 18 are generally okay too. With 5-star restaurants, luxury suites, and a cruise path from Miami to the Caribbean, Many are saying that Virgin Voyages will change the face of the cruise liner industry forever.
3. Eco-Friendly Travels
The threat of global warming looms ever greater in our world today, smiling down upon the travel industry. Wanting to help divert this crisis, the industry is taking steps on turning the bad impacts they have on the environment into good ones. They are donating a hefty portion of their profits to renewable energy.
They are even encouraging the use of Ecosia—a search engine that donates money to plant trees—to travellers whenever they need to find a hotel. Of course their efforts alone are mere baby steps, but their help, alongside the rest of the world, can make a great change to the rapidly changing climate at 2020’s doorstep.
4. World’s Fastest All-Electric Aircraft
Speaking of global warming, Rolls-Royce, the car company, is debuting ACCEL, an all-electric aircraft. They challenged themselves to build the world’s fastest electric aeroplane as of 2020, and are now doing test flights. Powered by a specialized battery, the ACCEL is expected to revolutionize aviation, averting the environmentally-destructive planes of the present day. Should their test flights be successful, the world will be one step closer to a healthier sky and a cleaner airline
5. Less Theme Parks, More Outdoors
To encourage kids to go outside more, parents are setting their New Year’s Resolution to showing their kids the great outdoors. More and more parents are embracing the idea of traveling rather than taking the kids to theme parks for entertainment, hopefully teaching them the beauty and the feel of being with nature.
Life had always been so much more than school, video games, and Disneyland and the sad part about that is that kids rarely get to see anything beyond that. So if you are a parent who loves to travel and adores nature and the great outdoors, consider taking your kids out there. Have fun and get some great family bonding time
6. The Resurgence of “Undertoured” Destination
One of the greatest problems faced by the tourism industry is the amount of travelers overcrowding tourist spots today. Rarely will you be able to find a waterfall where people are not already bathing in, nor will you be able to spend quality time with your friends and family alone atop the Grand Canyon without an overpopulation of tourists close behind you.
Intrepid is working on a solution right now by introducing undertraveled destinations to the world that deserves more love than what they get. Instead of Old Faithful, how about Great Sand Dunes National Park? Want to see the beautiful Niagara Falls? How about Marikina falls in the Philippines instead? The world is full of beautiful creations both by man and nature just waiting to be discovered. All of Earth was made to be admired equally
7. The Public into Outer Space
Outer space is not just for astronauts to enjoy anymore. The time has finally come for humanity’s next step to conquering the solar system which is, of course, space tourism! Blue Origin will soon send manned test flights on the New Shepard craft in 2020 in hopes of one day being suitable for space tourists and amateur cosmonauts.
Even better, Space X is planning to take people into the Von Braun Rotating Space Station, the very first space hotel complete with bars, restaurants, and residences, hopefully by 2025.
2020 is a new era of exploration for those who are travel-savvy, and with so much in the world happening, it has only gotten better. We at Naperville Limousine want you to know how much travel means to us, and how much it means to you. And with another year down for the count and the New Year quickly rushing in, there is no telling what will come next.
