trends of 2017
What destination do you think represents the trends of 2017?
India, because it is a fast-growing market in all respects – including travel – and it offers a wide spectrum of authentic culture. That’s what people are seeking these days – an authentic experience in order to familiarise themselves with the local culture. Where better to do that than in a beautiful place like India?
Where do you most want to travel in 2017?
I’d love to visit Australia, because it has such a unique character and a versatility that makes it a compelling destination.
The city break destination of 2017 is:
Athens, because it has the outstanding feature of combining a fast-paced modern city with the classic influences of an ancient town dominated by a large number of historic monuments. It was once the centre of worldwide civilisation, and throughout the times it has maintained its vibrancy and energy. Few cities can offer such diversity of experience, where you can be at a contemporary, stylish bar overlooking the Acropolis.
What do you think is the most interesting destination for 2017?
New Zealand (Queenstown pictured left), because it offers an originality in culture and landscape as well as a simple way of life that is often lost nowadays. I think being able to visit modern cities, world-class vineyards, remote lakes and white-sand beaches is just incredible, and endlessly fascinating.
