After almost two years of restricted travel experience, looks like travellers are once again packing their bags to go out and explore. Despite the surge in Covid-19 cases across the world due to the Omicron variant, the desire to travel is expected to remain high this year.

According to a recent survey by Tripadvisor, 71 per cent of Americans say that they are likely to travel for leisure in 2022. “As the world returns to travel, priorities are changing, and people want more memorable experiences on their trips. Three-quarters (75 per cent) of Americans say that it’s important they ‘see new places’ when thinking about their future travel plans,” said Steven Paganelli, Director, Destinations, Hotels and OTAs, Americas at Tripadvisor.

The travel guidance platform also announced its highly anticipated ‘Travelers’ Choice Awards for 2022: the Best of the Best Destinations’.

“There is a whole world out there to choose from, and we want to help guide travelers looking to take the best trips for them – whatever that perfect vacation may look like. From adventure to R&R, the 2022 Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards for Destinations include several subcategories created to reflect the best places to go no matter what type of trip you’re after,” Paganelli said.
