The American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) shared the top destinations travel advisors will be booking in the remainder of 2023.
They indicated that international travel is on a roll this 2023, with 67% of travel advisors reporting that their clients are more likely to travel abroad.
They said that listings and adventure travel experiences are on the rise, which is likely to help drive the international travel trend.
On that note, travel advisors book most of their clients in European destinations such as Italy, France and the United Kingdom. Those planning to travel to tropical destinations continue to head to the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas and Jamaica.
The most popular destinations in Asia to visit are Japan, Thailand and Vietnam; all destinations offer unique dining destinations with plenty of adventure and wellness activities to enjoy. South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania remain the top destinations for an African adventure, known for their safari offerings.
The top destinations in South America that travel consultants book for their clients are Argentina, Peru and Chile. These destinations have long been three of the most popular in the region, due to their history, diverse cultures and beautiful natural wonders.
This year, the top destinations in the MENA region are Egypt, Israel and Jordan, popular for their history and heritage, according to TravelPulse.
“Our members tell us they are busier than ever,” said Zane Kerby, president and CEO of the American Society of Travel Advisors.
“We’re excited to see people traveling the world again and even more excited to see them turning to trusted travel advisors to plan their trips,” he added.
