Expedia analysed thousands of data points as part of Singapore’s annual Year in Review trends report to find out what types of travel experiences Singaporeans are after. 2018 has been an exciting year for travel in Singapore, with remarkable growth seen in both internal and outbound travels.
Here are the top cities Singaporeans travelled to this 2018 that you might want to add to your bucket list in 2019.
This year, Singaporeans chose to stay closer to home, with Asian cities topping the list of top 10 most visited destinations. Based on Expedia’s flight data, neighbouring countries topped the list as Singaporeans’ most favourite destinations due to two things in common – food and shopping.
Fastest Growing Destinations
Aside from the countries mentioned above, Singaporeans are also revving to explore the roads less travelled. Smaller cities have seen more than double growths in travel demand for the year. Meaning, if you want to visit these trending travel destinations, book now before everyone does!
Demand for Staycations
Singaporeans are not all about exploring and seeing new places. Sometimes we just want a quick and easy escape without the hassle of leaving this sunny island. This year, the growth of staycations for Singaporeans has taken an average of 2.4 local staycations, a significant increase in year-on-year growth for local hotel bookings made since 2017.
So, what’s your itinerary for 2019? Will it be to experience the neighbouring countries? The visit the road less travelled? Or just a cosy bed in a nearby resort?
