If you're aiming to travel more in 2022 – maybe by taking more solo trips – Tripadvisor's list of the top trending destinations is packed with inspo.
These aren't necessarily the site's most popular destinations, but rather the ones that have seen the greatest growth in search traffic year-on-year. So, they're already pretty hot and poised to get hotter as venturing out of the UK potentially becomes less tricky again.
The pandemic certainly doesn't appear to have dampened our wanderlust. According to a recent Tripadvisor survey, 78% of Brits are planning to travel for leisure in 2022 – which is up from 72% in 2019.
Majorca in the Balearic Islands places top of the trending list. With a typical flight time from the UK of between two and three hours, it's definitely a destination that works for a weekend break.
Cairo in Egypt (approximately five hours) and the Greek island of Rhodes (approximately four hours) are right behind. Also on the list are further-afield destinations in Australia, Mexico and Brazil – check out the top 20 below.
