Where will the travel hot spots be in 2024? It’s a question we’d all like the answer to.
Will it be Mexico? Somewhere in Europe? If only there was some way we could know the destinations that are growing in popularity.
It turns out there is a way – there’s data out there that shows which destinations are gathering the most interest from travelers as we head into 2024.
A new report from luggage storage app Bounce has tracked the Pinterest travel index for a host of popular destinations to determine a list of the 20 places with the biggest increases in interest over the last year.
There are some intriguing and enticing places on the list, and we have picked out six of our favorites that we think everyone should consider checking out.
A country that has recently been breaking its own records for tourism, Japan can certainly be considered one of the most trending places to visit.
Kyoto is one of the country’s oldest and most famous cities and was the capital of Japan up until the mid-1800s.
The city itself is packed with stunningly beautiful pagodas and temples, as well as old, cobbled streets where geishas can be spotted.
It’s also the launchpad to two of Japan’s most iconic attractions: the Fushimi Inari Shrine, famous for its hundreds of red wooden gates, and the Arashiyama bamboo forest.
Hawaii, United States
The tropical islands of Hawaii have long been the perfect winter getaway for Americans.
Despite the recent devastating fire on the island of Maui, Hawaii is still trending strongly, with tourists seeking to sample its unique culture and delightful weather.
Next year will be a great time to visit Hawaii thanks to annual festivals such as the Prince Lot Hula Competition in July, the King Kamehameha Celebration in June, and the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival in October.
About an hour’s drive from Bali’s international airport, Ubud is an enchanting and relaxing place to retreat on the island away from the beach parties.
Ubud is surrounded by the verdant greens of jungles and rice paddies, making it incredibly photogenic and the ideal place to stop and take a breather.
There are plenty of significant attractions nearby, such as the Pura Tirta Empul temple complex, the Campuhan Ridge, and a monkey forest.
Bali is also considered one of the cheapest places to go as a digital nomad this winter.
Austin, United States
The city of Austin, Texas has certainly been becoming a more mainstream destination in recent years.
It’s a warm and sunny place to be through most of the year and has a young and vibrant atmosphere that is helped by the University of Texas campus.
The city has managed to maintain a small-town feel despite recent growth, and it’s also a great place to base yourself if you want to check out nearby nature spots such as Lake Travis or Mount Bonnell.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Beautiful beaches, iconic landmarks, and a party atmosphere like no other – Rio de Janeiro is an experience for the senses.
The Brazilian city is known for its many festivals and carnivals, as well as a thriving cultural scene with many theatres and museums.
Perhaps the most iconic sight is the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer atop of Mount Corcovado, which is surrounded by one of the biggest urban forests in the world, the Tijuca Forest.
Rio is an experience like no other, but be sure you practice sensible precautions as petty crime is not uncommon.
One of Europe’s most important cities, Amsterdam packs a lot of culture into a small area.
The coffee shops and beautiful museums lining its quaint canals are so popular that Amsterdam has had some trouble with too many tourists in the past year, so visiting at an off-peak time is advisable.
Some cool things not to miss in 2024 include the National Tulip Day on January 24, King’s Night on April 26, and the Amsterdam Light Festival over December and January.
