Top 10 Most Searched Travel Destinations

Thailand

Whether you’re seeking the hustle and bustle of chaotic Bangkok, the hedonistic escapism of a Full Moon Party, or a tranquil beach all to yourself, Thailand has all of that and more. Ornate ruins seem to grow from the lush landscape, while the ancient city of Chiang Mai and its hundreds of Buddhist temples acts as a gateway to verdant mountains and isolated villages.

Spain

With an art scene that stretches from Bilbao to Madrid to Barcelona, wines that pair perfectly with the various regional cuisines, and miles upon miles of glorious coastline, Spain blends cultural elegance with rugged landscapes.

Italy

A perennial favorite, Italy is one of those countries that keep visitors coming back for more. Rome and its dozens of iconic landmarks and world-altering history will fill you with awe; the canals and narrow alleys of Venice will have you breathing a little deeper and walking a little slower; Milan will have you feeling classier, more elegant and fashionable simply for walking its streets; and Sicily will take you back in time.
