WASHINGTON — If reading the newspaper means skimming all but the travel section, and scrolling through social media morphs into studying every post tagged #wanderlust, it might be time for a vacation.
Dust off your passport and pack your bags: Georgina Dee, publishing director of DK Eyewitness Travel Guides, shared some of the best places to visit this year and next:
One of the hottest destinations these days is Japan. Thanks to a major push from the country’s government, tourism in Japan is expected to increase 67 percent by 2020 (from 2016).
