Bozen – popular travel destination for 2023
The restrictions caused by the pandemic are finally a thing of the past, and the desire to travel and discover new destinations is back. That's why Booking.com was particularly curious about the 2023 travel trends and conducted extensive research on this topic.
In August 2022, an online survey was conducted among a sample of adults who planned a leisure or business trip in the next 12 to 24 months: a total of 24,179 people from 32 different countries and regions took part. Various aspects of travelling were examined, such as: the role of travel budgets, new opinions about travel after COVID and motives for travel.
Relaxation and enjoyment are still one of the main reasons for a holiday. Many travellers want to do something good for their body, mind and soul. Others are looking for adventure: in survival training and in close contact with nature or in discovering the previously unknown.
Those who take inspiration from virtual reality when making travel decisions or even consider an AR or VR travel experience are in the minority. Not surprisingly: the majority find the on-site experience more fulfilling than virtual travel.
