January 10, 2020 -

Happy new year (or new decade?) to you and yours! While Jan. 1 may have already come and gone, the New Year celebrations are yet to begin in Macao, where the Year of the Rat will begin on January 27 with colorful firework displays, festive parades, cultural performances and more. Papua New Guinea is already looking ahead to the “Sing Sings” of 2020. These celebrations allow visitors to gain exposure to the many different cultures throughout the island and, due to their popularity, visitors often plan a year in advance to attend. But these new year celebrations are just the beginning from Myriad destinations – read on below for more!


  • Qatar will host the Doha Jewelry and Watch Exhibition February 24–29, 2020, where more than 500 international luxury brands will display their finest work, special editions and unique pieces alongside the most talented emerging local jewelry designers.
  • While the towns and villages of Tenerife have festivals and “Romerías” throughout the year, one of the most popular annual festivals is the Tenerife Carnival which takes place February 19–March 1 this year.
