Moving from the hustle bustle of metro cities and typical tourist destinations, travellers are opting for different locations and are hunting for the taste of the local cuisines of different places, say experts.
Ashwani Khurana, environmentalist and President of Karma Lakelands, and Danish Din, Director, The Grand Dragon, Ladakh Achievement Travelling, have listed a few travel trends this year:
- Making intelligent use of long weekends, an increasing number of Indians are now exploring eco-friendly destinations rather than going to another city with the same hustle-bustle. People are now on the lookout for authentic experiences rather than just a holiday.
- Travellers are not just looking for unexplored destinations, but also want to immerse themselves in the local food and culture to truly experience the essence of the place.
- While solo-travel was a big hit last year, in 2018 family members from all age-groups are travelling together to relive old memories and create new ones.
- Travellers no longer want to visit places to check them off their bucket list. Instead they are focusing on achievement travel.
