It’s the start of the new year, which means it’s time to get a headstart on those travel plans. Klook, a world-leading travel activities and services booking platform, recently revealed the top travel destinations Filipinos are set to visit this 2020.
Based on Klook’s internal booking data, Filipinos bitten by the travel bug are interested in visiting destinations within Asia this year, with Ho Chi Minh, Siem Reap, Hanoi & Halong Bay, and Pattaya topping the list.
Aside from these Southeast Asian cities, Shanghai, Kyoto, Gyeonggi-do, and Dubai are also cited as part of Filipinos’ travel bucket list for the year.
In 2019, Asian countries also dominated the top overseas travel destinations of Filipinos.
While Asia appears to be a preferred area for travelers from the Philippines, Klook’s data uncovered that Filipinos are becoming more open to exploring other countries beyond Asia in 2020.
Klook’s internal booking data also reveals that Filipino travelers are set to visit Paris, France and Sydney, Australia this year.
“It’s exciting to see Filipinos’ growing interest in traveling both within and beyond Asia,” shares Michelle Cruz, Marketing Lead of Klook Philippines. “At Klook, it’s always our priority to give Filipinos a seamless travel experience. We have over 100,000 activities available on our platform so whether it’s traveling to these emerging destinations or visiting other popular vacation spots, Klook conveniently has something for every Filipino traveller. As we embark on a new year, we hope Filipinos can continue counting on Klook for all their travel needs.”
Travelers around the globe also included the Philippines as part of their list of destinations to visit in 2020.
Visitors from Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, United States, and United Kingdom are interested in travelling to the Philippines, particularly for its beaches in Boracay and Palawan.
