Lots of people are planning trips for 2022.
So if you’re in need of some holiday inspiration, Tripadvisor has released a list of its up-and-coming destinations of the year.
And there’s certainly something for everyone – with spots for nature-lovers as well as city dwellers.
The review site has put together the list by analysaing its own visitor data, and noting the holiday hotspots with the most growth in online traffic over the past year.
As a result, they’ve deemed 10 places as the most ‘up-and-coming’ and growing in popularity – so be sure to add these to your 2022 travel bucket list.
Topping the rankings is Key West in Florida – the southernmost point in the United States – known for water sports, lively nightlife, beaches, historic sites and pastel architecture.
Following close behind in second place is Baa Atoll in the Maldives – which is a Unesco-designated Biosphere Reserve, so is great for year-round snorkelling and diving over the stunning coral reef.
In third position is New York City, which is arguably not up-and-coming at all – but is clearly growing in popularity with travel back on the agenda.
It’s worth pointing out that Tripadvisor has also put together a list of locations for the UK – which includes beauty spots in Wales, Cumbria and Oxford.
