Lisbon cited as the #1 destination—Ubud, Cinque Terre round out the top 3
müvTravel, the new digital platform enabling travel planning, itinerary building and trip personalization, has announced that Lisbon is the top selection on its list of the Top 30 Millennial Travel Destinations for 2019.
Lisbon’s temperate climate, sunny weather, green space, lifestyle pace, history, culture, architecture, culinary reputation, as well as its comparably low cost of living and its status as a relatively uncrowded tourist destination, were some of the factors that went into Lisbon receiving this accolade. Ubud, Cinque Terre, the Utah National Parks and Luberon rounded out the top 5.
Millennial, and Generation Z travelers in particular, have unique needs when it comes to what they are looking for in terms of travel experiences. Their insistence on memorable and original moments and activities that focus on sustainable and personalized local experiences has completely turned the travel industry on its head.
The Top 30 Millennial Travel Destinations for 2019 was compiled from examining the bucket list choices of muvTravel’s millennial users.Their desired destinations seem to generally center on off the tourist path choices not often found in traditional top destinations lists compiled by magazines and other travel publications.
“It is quite interesting to see the places millennials are interested in discovering” said Michel Karam, Chief Experience Officer and Founder of müvTravel.“This list of the Top 30 Millennial Travel Destinations showcases some uncommon destinations, all across the world, which serves as exciting alternatives to the typical destinations that one usually sees.The fact these places are rather unique and generally not invaded yet by mass tourism, affords travelers the possibility of a more powerful and authentic travel experience”.
Karam continued, “We seek to encourage travelers to go beyond the destinations they thought that they knew.We believe that by putting forward alternative possibilities, we are making it easier for travelers to plan more exciting, varied, interesting and fulfilling travel itineraries for this upcoming year than would otherwise be possible.
