TAIPEI, TAIWAN (Merxwire) – After COVID-19, people worldwide began to arrange international travel and often searched online for countries or cities worth visiting. The travel and accommodation website Airbnb predicts that the country with the largest growth in searches in 2024 will be Japan in Asia, which has a unique urban culture and natural beauty throughout the four seasons. Taiwan’s annual search growth rate will jump to second place. European tourism industry media surveyed the ranking of tourist cities with the highest increase in searches by French people. The top two were Osaka and Tokyo in Japan, and Taipei ranked fifth.

According to the 2024 travel trends released by Airbnb, this year will be the year when global travelers start world adventures, and the journey will be full of surprises. Judging from the annual growth rate of searches for popular tourist countries, Japan will be the country with the largest increase in searches, followed by Taiwan, Albania, Singapore, Finland, United Arab Emirates, Curacao, Netherlands Aruba, Thailand, and Guatemala are all destinations of interest to travelers.

The latest statistics from international travel platforms Skyscanner and Expedia show that the country with the largest increase in global searches is Taiwan, with an increase of 2786%, ranking first in 2023, and was called an explosive increase by French media. For French tourists, the cities with the largest increase in search volume in 2023 are mainly in Asia, with Taipei ranking fifth in terms of search increase, with a 211% increase in search times. French magazines introduced the beauty of Taiwan, mentioning that the food is very delicious.

In terms of cities, the most increased searches by French tourists were Osaka and Tokyo in Japan, followed by Mumbai in India in third place, Skopje, the capital of the Republic of North Macedonia, in fourth place, and Taipei in fifth place. The others, in order, are Tirana, the capital of Albania, Hanoi in Vietnam, Bilbao in Spain, and Madeira in Portugal. Taiwan has become the country that French people are most interested in visiting after Japan and India.

The survey also mentioned Destination Dupe after the epidemic, mainly because the cost of international travel increased a lot in the middle and late stages of the epidemic, and some places became popular attractions because they were relatively affordable and had good experience value. Expedia’s online survey shows that Taipei City has become an alternative destination to Seoul, South Korea, and has the largest increase in searches for cities in the world. Pattaya has become an alternative tourist destination to Bangkok, ranking second in terms of search growth.

The European Travel Commission stated that the travel craze will continue to heat up this year, with 68% of Europeans planning to travel within six months, and 71% of tourists would maintain or increase their travel budget. French tourists tend to pursue affordable luxury travel, that is they hope to enjoy a more upscale and comfortable journey at a reasonable price.
