Just in time for the season of asking really, really nicely for a new suitcase, Airbnb has released its predictions for the most popular travel destinations in 2019.
The home–rental website forecasts a boom in visits to 19 cities and countries across the globe, based on a combination of Airbnb search data, bookings, and wish-list flags. Lucky for us—and by us, I mean anyone who likes to fantasize about exotic vacations while lying in bed on a Saturday morning—they've included home listings and a handful of Airbnb "experiences" in each locale.
There are islands. There are cities. There are mountains, beaches, red deer, and golden eagles. There's even a trail named after cheese (Route du Camembert, anyone?). Without further ado, Airbnb's top 19 travel destinations for 2019 are:
1. Kaikoura, New Zealand
2. Xiamen, China
3. Puebla, Mexico
4. Normandy, France
5. Great Smoky Mountains, United States
6. Buenos Aires Province, Argentina
7. Accra, Ghana
9. Outer Hebrides, Scotland
