A couple weeks after the Obama administration lifted the travel ban to Cuba many habitual travellers have pegged the island country as their number one destination for 2015. Travel Leaders Group announced in its 2015 trends survey that Cuba is emerging as a top spot for luxury vacationers. They compile the data from about 850 travel experts and managers.
The country is an untouched paradise for American travelers as there has not been a legal way to get there from the U.S. for many decades. Such time passing has created much demand for exploration around the island.
While Cuba is a place of interest, European travel continues to dominate the travel volume as they offer river and Mediterranean cruises along with historical destinations for academic buffs. Europe offers a balance of the old and new world and the possibility to do it in style and comfort. Other destinations are creeping up on the European demand, including African safaris, United Arab Emirates, South Africa, Croatia and Vietnam.
Any of these destinations not tickling your fancy? the rest of the top ten destinations from North America are Australia, England, Baltic cruises, Germany, Ireland, and South Africa.
The emergence of a stronger U.S. dollar has driven travel abroad, coupled with dropping fuel costs along with airfare ticket prices. It seems that 2015 will shape up to be a big year in tourism for Americans looking to take advantage of the economic atmosphere. If you are looking for the most bang for your buck head to the Euro-zone as our dollar is doing well against the EU at the moment.
At the moment, northern Europe is seeing a higher influx of tourism than southern Europe where cruises are usually launched. If trying to find a deal, aim towards the Mediterranean.
How ever you travel, and wherever you travel, be sure to have fun and take pictures!
