Travel Trends In 2022: Long And Relaxing Vacation

Planning long vacations is now in vogue, according to Expedia’s survey. Almost 46% of the 1,000 Singaporeans who participated in the survey said they would prefer to have a trip that lasts at least six days, with the travellers between 18 and 25 being the keenest on taking longer time-off.

Relaxing is one of the most sought-after activities on vacations now.

And by “taking time-off”, this means leisurely travels with fewer itinerary items. More travellers would rather travel slow compared to pre-pandemic travel trends. The survey showed that relaxing and doing nothing are among the most preferred activities during travel. Trying new cuisines and revisiting places that were closed during the pandemic are also priorities.
