As 2016 wraps up and we look ahead to the travel possibilities of 2017, it’s interesting to see which destinations were most popular this year. Recently, MasterCard did a study of 132 cities and destinations, ranking them in order of most-visited and fastest-growing. It released the annual Global Destinations Cities Index report for 2016 using data from tourists’ spending.
You’ll notice that a handful of the top 10 cities are in Asia. As the GDCI report states, the results show “changes in regional dynamics, especially in the AsiaPacific region.”
Check out which cities made the cut as the 10 most popular travel destinations of 2016 with millions of visitors.
