5 Interesting Tourism Trends in 2021



The trips that connect emotions, experience foods, weekend holidays... are the types of tourism that will be trend in 2021.

The year 2021 will see changes not only in the destination but also in the type of trip that tourists will choose next year.  New survey from online travel platform Booking.com reveals 5 new tourism trends in 2021 to stimulate demand and inspire travelers to take trips that best match their new travel interests.

1. Journeys 

connecting emotions

 In the year 2020, most visitors will spend a long time away from family and friends.  And to many people, it seems that the distance has made people appreciate each other more as tourists will see later travel occasions as an opportunity to reconnect with loved ones.

 In fact, while apart, 49% of travelers revealed that talking with family and friends about travel is one of the main inspirations for traveling again.

2. Just relaxation is luxury enough (Relaxury)

When most people's travel plans have to be postponed abruptly, just being able to go somewhere is a luxury, in fact many travelers have determined not to underestimate the opportunity to travel in the future.

 Therefore, although the survey shows that tourists still intend to travel again, now only 10% actually plan to go on a luxury trip (such as in villas, 5-star hotels),  the majority (43%) want a relaxing "escape" because relaxation can become a real luxury in 2021.

3. Weekend fun

 As many travelers feel concerned that future travel plans may be interrupted again, demand for a short trip will increase as more tourists want multiple shorter holidays in 2021 compared to 2019 to not be disappointed.

 Another group of tourists also revealed that they prioritize a weekend for their first trip after restrictions have been lifted, which shows that visitors wish to escape from reality even though just a few days.

4. New travel experience through foods

The tourist's desire to explore the world has not diminished, but most people still avoid traveling abroad (73%) when travel restrictions are lifted.  That is why domestic tourism is a way of discovering a new world and culinary discovery is considered a top priority.  With that spirit of eating, tourists want to taste and enjoy local cuisine while traveling, and want to eat out more often with the savings from not traveling abroad.

5. Alone but not lonely

The trend of solo travel is likely to grow even stronger as travel cravings hampered by a pandemic, will encourage people to "carry backpacks and go" in 2021.

 According to Booking.com data in the recent pandemic shows that tourists will plan to travel alone in the future.

 With 52% of travelers revealing wanting to travel more later to make up for lost time in 2020, this mentality is clearly encouraging everyone to plan a "solo" trip for life to return to the outside world.

This survey is conducted with a sample of adults who have been on a business trip or vacation for the past 12 months and must plan to travel for the next 12 months (if /when travel restrictions are removed).

A total of 20,934 participants across 28 countries/regions were polled (including 999 from the United States, 496 from Canada, 497 from Mexico, 997 from Colombia, 999 from Brazil, 499 from Argentina,  995 from Australia, 499 from New Zealand, 999 from Spain, 996 from Italy, 996 from France, 999 from the United Kingdom, 996 from Germany, 498 from the Netherlands, 499 from Denmark, 499 from Sweden, 498 from Croatia, 1001 from Russia, 498 from Israel, 997 from India, 994 from China, 499 from Hong Kong, 497 from Thailand, 496 from Singapore, 499 from Taiwan, 997 from Korea, 500 from Vietnam and 995 from Japan).
