This week we chat with Jason Cochran, Editor-in-Chief of Frommers.com about their Where to Go in 2020 list.
Where to go lists are actually slightly controversial, at least for industry insiders. That’s because some publications operate on a pay-to-play basis, which means destinations actually pay to be included on these always-popular lists. That’s not the case for Frommers, which is one reason of many why I was excited to interview Jason Cochran, Editor-in-Chief of Frommers.com all about their Where To Go In 2020 list. Some of the inclusions are slightly expected, but most were surprising, at least to me. What these spots on the list all have in common though are that they are fascinating places all deserving to be visited.
