Travel Trends to Try in 2024

We’ve wrapped up our top five travel trends we want to try in 2024. Will you be joining us?

New year. New travel plans! And with a new year comes new ways to travel, to explore, to enjoy all this gorgeous world has to offer. Are you ready to dive into a new year of new experiences? Here are the top five travel trends we’re planning to try in 2024.

Food for the soul: 

In 2024, culinary delights take the spotlight! When you travel, sign up for street food tours that explore the vibrant tapestry of local flavors, participate in hands-on cooking classes to master authentic local recipes, or visit local breweries and vineyards to drink in the local wares. Be bold and try the local dishes when you dine out. Embrace new flavors and savor the world one bite at a time.

Log out and tune in:

Escape the digital noise by trying a social media detox. Look for off-the-grid havens that allow travelers to disconnect from the virtual world and reconnect with the simplicity of life. Imagine waking up to the sound of birds instead of notifications, enjoying breathtaking landscapes without the pressure to share them on the ‘gram. These retreats are perfect for anyone who needs to remember how to live in the moment instead of in the cloud.

Focus on YOU for a change:

Take it a step further than a digital detox, and pack your bags for a transformative journey that nourishes both body and soul. Wellness retreats offer an escape from the chaos of daily life, giving you a chance to practise self-care and refresh your soul. You can find retreats with any number of focuses: yoga retreats, women’s retreats, writer’s retreats… the possibilities are endless! 

Embrace authenticity:

Swap the touristy checklists for authentic encounters with local cultures. Imagine skipping the tourist traps and instead strolling through bustling markets, indulging in street food delights prepared by local vendors, and staying in boutique accommodations that capture the essence of the neighborhood instead of big box hotels. Talk to locals, try new things, and celebrate the unique flavors, traditions, and stories of each place, creating memories that go beyond typical tourist experiences.

Green is the new black:

Eco-travel isn’t just for hippies anymore! The travel world is taking sustainability to luxurious heights. Picture eco-friendly resorts nestled in pristine environments, offering an opulent escape while minimizing your carbon footprint. From carbon-neutral flights to resorts using sustainable energy, to culinary masterpieces sourced from local, organic producers, it's about pampering yourself guilt-free. Good for the soul, good for the planet, it’s a win-win!

While there’s nothing wrong with taking the same sort of vacation you take every year, why not make 2024 the year you start broadening your horizons? Try something new – you never know, you might just discover a new passion!
