Top 10 Trending Summer Destinations for 2019
Our relationship with Virtuoso brings our clients a lot of valuable complimentary VIP perks.
But, as we are now an organization of over 20,000 travel advisors, 1,000 travel agencies, and combined sales north of $26 billion; we are also able to glean a lot of interesting information about the comings and goings of today’s luxury travelers.
The Virtuoso Hot 10 are those countries that have experienced the largest year-over-year percentage increases in summer bookings from our group. Let’s take a look at the top 10 list:
- Chile (+410%)
- India (+173%)
- Puerto Rico (+149%)
- Philippines (+129%)
- Belgium (+111%)
- Kenya (+89%)
- Egypt (+76%)
- Singapore (+73%)
- Costa Rica (+67%)
- Dominican Republic (+58%)
The Hot 10 Analysis: Following a trend first spotted in spring 2019, Chile continues its upswing in popularity by offering a variety of terrain from the Atacama Desert to the Lake District to the Andes Mountains to wine valleys. India and the Philippines are among the more exotic destinations luring visitors with their ability to deliver on the authenticity so desired by luxe travelers. Kenya offers outstanding safari opportunities as well as the wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and beaches. Travelers looking for sun and sand are escaping to Caribbean destinations such as Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Pop culture tourism is fueling interest in Singapore, the setting for the hit film “Crazy Rich Asians.”
If I had to choose from this list, I would select Belgium and Chile. But there are certainly others on the list that Carol and I would love to visit and some of them we have already visited.
