Travelling might not be allowed but travel dreams keep on growing

Travel might be on pause in these unprecedented times, but this hasnt stopped people across the country from dreaming about the possibilities.

Booking . com shares the top destinations on peoples’ minds as they wait for when the time is right to travel again, after delving into the millions of travel wish lists created by hopeful travellers on its platform over the last two months.

With properties wish listed across over 100,000 different destinations since the start of March, the digital travel leader revealed Mumbai, Goa, New Delhi, Lonavala and Bengaluru are the top 5 most wish-listed domestic destinations for Indian travellers.

While international destinations like Dubai, Bali, Bangkok, Istanbul and London continue to inspire travel dreams for Indians, it’s no surprise that in-country stays feature in nearly 67 percent of all those wish listed by Indians during this time of uncertainty, a jump from the same time last year when domestic properties accounted for 48 percent of those wish listed.

When it comes to topmost wish-listed international destinations featuring in Indian travel dreams, it’s a similar picture with island and beach destinations taking centre stage alongside major metropolitan cities. Dubai tops the list, followed by Ubud (Bali), Bangkok (Thailand), Istanbul (Turkey) and London (UK), while Seminyak (Bali), North Male Atoll (Maldives) and Singapore are next in line.
