It's that time of the year again when we dream of jetting off to a new destination to explore sights and culinary offerings. We're sure you're already excited to fill your calendars with future escapades in exotic locations or historically rich destinations. But before you do so, might we interest you in taking a peek at places that deserve to be part of your to-visit list? Here are the trending holiday destinations from HomeAway you should definitely visit with your family or besties.
It's no secret that the Philippines has an abundance of pristine beaches. By now, you may have already heard of the famous Boracay and the hidden paradise of El Nido. But this year, there is a trend to leave the bustling life in the city, especially for those who are in Malaysia and Singapore, and go where there is quiet and peace — and that is to the sugar-white beaches of Cebu. Also called the Queen City of the South, Cebu is home to over a hundred islands and islets that are teeming with natural beauty. Stay in a cabin or a treehouse to cap off the experience.
Taiwan has become a popular destination for tourists in the past couple of years because of its culinary offerings. Many people flock to Taipei's modern metropolis with a twist of rich history, but there's so much more to see in the land formerly called Formosa. Those who want to commune with nature but also have the amenities of modern cities, like people from Singapore and Malaysia, will find Taichung to be a treat. With Taichung's beautiful natural scenery — from wetlands and forests to mountains and hot springs — coupled with their food havens and art streets, your days will be packed with fun and adventure.
