Despite the prolonged pandemic, people from around the world have been eager to return to travelling! According to Tripadvisor’s recent survey, more than 7 out of 10 respondents said that they are likely to travel for leisure in 2022 (78% of respondents in the UK, 71% of respondents in the US, 72% of respondents in Australia).
Of course, as the pandemic has evolved, so have travelers’ tastes…
With a quick glance at the popular bookings website’s annual roundup of top destinations, it becomes evident that people are once again flocking to pack beaches up and down the European coast. Five of the top 10 trending destinations worldwide belong to the Mediterranean shoreline, including Rhodes and Santorini in the Aegean Sea, the Spanish island of Majorca, which took the top spot, as well as Dubrovnik, Croatia—often called the “pearl of the Adriatic”.
RHODES: AN ISLAND OF ABUNDANCE FOR EVERY TASTE
But let’s see what Tripadvisor has to say about the Greek island that saw the largest year-over-year rise in interest on the platform:
“The largest of the twelve Dodecanese islands on the Aegean’s eastern edge, Rhodes is also its most popular. The well-preserved medieval city of Rhodes sits at the north of the island of the same name. High rise hotels line the northern and eastern coastlines. Small villages and resorts dot the island’s other shores. Whether your interests are beaches, bars or ancient sites, Rhodes offers an abundance of all three. Authentic Greece can be found in the hilly interior of the 50-mile-long island.”.
And it’s true! Rhodes, being the capital of the Dodecanese, is an island which is ideal not only for those who want to relax but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday. With its bright green hills, beautiful valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place! Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination.
“As the world returns to travel, priorities are changing, and people want more memorable experiences on their trips,” said Tripadvisor’s CDME, Steven Paganelli. “Almost three-quarters (70%) of Brits say that it’s important they ‘see new places’ when thinking about their future travel plans.”
