“Travel has changed tremendously over the past year with many people opting for different types of holidays, particularly ones which are more activity-based as our research shows a 47% increase in Google searches for city breaks and a 23% increase in sports holidays.
“Although globally we’ve moved away from most travel restrictions, the pandemic has had a lasting impact on the types of holidays we’re adding to our travel bucket lists. This shift is reflected on platforms such as TikTok where our analysis of the top destinations and activities shows a huge interest in both city breaks and outdoor-based activities.
“With the endless informative and inspiring content shared on TikTok, as well as the sheer number of people those videos reach, we anticipate many travellers around the world will be ticking off their bucket list destinations in 2023.”
