Guest Post: Travel Trends 2017

New travel trends are forming all the time. International travel to South Asian countries is particularly popular these days. Many westerners on tight budgets are looking for the best deals they can when travelling. These Asian countries are aware of this and so they advertise their hotels, restaurants, and airlines to these westerners looking for a good deals. Besides, the value of western money like the dollar goes a lot further in a country like Thailand than a country like England. In fact, many people who stay in Thailand for an extended period of time claim they can survive in the country for $700 per month. This includes apartment rent, food, public transportation, and utilities. This is why more people are travelling to Thailand than ever before.



Of course, we cannot forget about Cuba as the most recent travel trend for Americans. For many decades, Cuba was off limits to American tourists because of the political conflicts between the two countries. Now Cuba is open to taking American tourists and it has caused a huge wave of travellers to go to the country for the first time. Many Cuban Americans who came to America as illegal immigrants were overjoyed that they could go back to their homeland for a visit and not worry about having to stay there. However, this may all change if President Donald Trump makes U.S. relations with Cuba worse instead of better.


Believe it or not, the country of France is still the most popular destination in the world. Even though they’ve had to endure numerous terrorist attacks and incidents, tourists are travelling to the country and showing that terrorists can’t keep them away from enjoying such a beautiful country with a vast history to it. Paris is still the most widely visited French city because of the iconic Eiffel Tower and other beautiful historical sites.



Many travellers on tight budgets don’t have to stay at hotels anymore. The hospitality app Airbnb now makes it easy and cheap for travellers to temporarily rent out a room in someone’s home while they are visiting their city or just passing through. Some travellers are even travelling the world doing this, which is something they could never have afforded before by staying at hotel rooms. We’re likely going to see more technology like this integrated into the travel industry and making it affordable and easier for travellers to get accommodations in any town or city they want.
