CALGARY (660 NEWS) — Travelzoo has just released its 2020 Best Bets List which looks to show off incredible destinations to Canadian travellers at a great price.

Three of the top places on the list visit three different continents with three completely different cultures to show off.

RWANDA

“The World Economic Forum not only rated Rwanda the safest country to travel to in Africa but the ninth safest place to travel to in the world. Rwanda is quickly becoming a top safari destination, and is one of only two places on Earth you can see mountain gorillas up close.”

THE PHILIPPINES

“The new Thailand!

Affordably priced, great beaches, lovely, Kind locals.

Philippine Airlines runs nonstop flights from both Vancouver and Toronto. If you don’t need nonstop flights, roundtrip flights from Vancouver can be had for as little as $629.”

VANCOUVER ISLAND

“Accommodations for every budget — possible to get 4-star hotel under $100 from late fall until early spring.

It can snow at this time of year in Tofino, but Parksville is great for families with milder weather. Stay at Tigh Na Mara.”

The ranking takes into consideration factors such as cost, transport options from Canada, vacancy rates, foreign exchange, world events, and availability of deals.
