While perennial favourite London (England) tops a new list of trending destinations in 2015, Mumbai made it to the fourth position following Santiago (Chile) and Paris (France). In fact, India is the only country from all of Asia to have made it to the list.
The list is based on the findings of 800 consultants at American Express Travel, who chimed in for a report on the travel habits of North American consumers. While the top 10 list is filled with many of the usual suspects – London, Paris and New York – less predictable cities such as Santiago, Buenos Aires and Mumbai also got featured.
Resort destinations like Providenciales in Turks and Caicos Islands, and Puerto Vallarta in Mexico are among surprise entries. The ranking is based on destinations that saw the greatest year over year growth in bookings at American Express travel.
Also, more and more travelers are looking for customized experiences that may include more hands on experience such as wine tours and cooking classes.
The interest in river cruises as compared to ocean cruises is also experiencing a significant spike for travel in 2015.
