Airbnb, the online homestay booking platform says the top trending destination in the world during 2022 was Bangkok. And for 2023, it’s still doing well, at number 5 of global trending destinations.

According to searches made on the platform during the first three quarters of 2022, Bangkok was the number 1 trending destination. The list of all global trending destinations is as follows:

• Bangkok, Thailand
• Sydney, Australia
• Málaga, Spain
• Seoul, South Korea
• Melbourne, Australia
• Itapema, Brazil
• Angra dos Reis, Brazil
• Capão da Canoa, Brazil
• Auckland, New Zealand
• Brisbane, Australia

According to a Nation Thailand report, Airbnb searches for the first three quarters of 2023 also see Bangkok proving popular, with the Thai capital ranking at number 5. Málaga in Spain is currently at number 1, followed by Sydney at number 2, Melbourne at number 3, and Auckland, New Zealand, at number 4.

Meanwhile, Amanpreet Bajaj from Airbnb says the “new normal” of remote working is creating an uptick in bookings.

“In 2022, we continued to see changes in the way people live, work and travel on Airbnb. It’s clear that the newfound flexibility offered by remote and hybrid work has led to a revolution in how we travel – especially when it comes to international destinations. The re-opening of more countries this year also unlocked pent-up demand from international travellers eager to reconnect with loved ones or visit their favourite destinations once more.”
