Named as a “completely safe to visit” destination, Ho Chi Minh City is in the first place in the ranking of the trendiest destinations in 2023. This is the rating of the travel site Travel Off Path based on the search volume of visitors.
According to Travel Off Path, travelers are eager to return to Asia and explore the natural wonders and Buddhist temples. In fact, the demand for cross-border experiences in Asia is so high that it now has seven out of 10 on the list of top trending destinations for 2023. While Asia has not yet fully recovered to pre-crisis levels, it is in a much better position than it was at the start of the year. Some Asian countries that have completely banned travel in response to the COVID-19 epidemic are welcoming back tourists from all over the world.
These statements of Travel Off Path are based on the survey results of the famous online travel company Kayak (USA). The survey results show that there is a significant increase in the search for vacations in the region, especially when more and more Asia-Pacific countries have lifted anti-epidemic measures. Kayak has named Asia and the South Pacific “regions of the year” for international travel in 2023.
According to experts, 2022 is the year of European tourism after the “old continent” soon lifted restrictive regulations to prevent epidemics. For American tourists, going to Europe is very convenient because there are countless direct flights connecting the US with destinations in Europe. Nonetheless, according to Kayak, in 2023, American tourists will seek out new destinations, even if there are no direct flights from their home cities.
Based on the data, Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) is at the top of the list of 10 trending destinations in 2023. Search volume shows that Ho Chi Minh City leads with a search rate that increased by 769% over the previous year, much higher than the second destination, Taipei (Taiwan, China), with a growth rate of 289%.
The number of US tourists to Vietnam will continue to increase because the epidemic prevention and control restrictions have been lifted. International flights have also resumed, and the most important reason: “Vietnam is a completely safe destination to visit”. Coming to Ho Chi Minh City, visitors will have the opportunity to explore a modern city. The ancient features of French colonial architecture, religious architecture, and so on are mixed in with modernity.
Along with Ho Chi Minh City, in Travel Off Path’s list of 10 trending destinations in 2023, there are Tel Aviv (Israel), Tokyo (Japan), Bangkok (Thailand), Hong Kong (China), Singapore, Taipei (Taiwan, China), Auckland (New Zealand), Melbourne (Australia), and Sydney (Australia).
