For the last few years, the Croatian tourism industry has been booming with growth, breaking its records for visitors year after year. There are a lot of travel trends fueling travel to Croatia. Here are the biggest ones for 2019:
We all know the importance of spending time alone, taking time to clear our minds and just be. However, to many it may come as a surprise to know that solo travel is increasing. In fact, some people are opting out of travelling with their partner or family to travel solo instead. One of the places that provides the optimal solo travel experience just so happens to be Croatia.
The country has many cities and towns that offer people the freedom to travel solo safely, even late at night. Unlike many destinations, tourists in Croatia are generally welcomed by the locals, and it is considered one of the world’s top 20 safest countries.
Another trend that’s driving more people to Croatia is the fact people are choosing cruise travel more than ever before. Since Croatia has such beautiful coastlines, it’s really no surprise that more and more cruise ships are sailing over to the island nation.
Croatia has lots to explore: historic towns, pristine natural beauty like gorgeous beaches and crystal clear seas, and over 1,200 islands. There are endless possibilities for vacation getaway, and cruise travel makes it easy and affordable to do more and see more on a Croatian vacation.
Social media-influenced travel
It’s no secret: social media influencers on social media outlets like Youtube and Instagram are influencing our buying decisions more than ever. Our travel plans are no exception to this. It’s not just consumers being influenced, the influencers themselves are gravitating to places that will give them the most exciting experiences to share with followers and the best shots.
And, that brings us back to Croatia. It is one of the most remarkable travel destinations for its plethora of photo-worthy views of nature, historic towns, festivals, and cool places to eat and drink.
Staying fit and healthy never goes out of style, in fact, more people than ever are taking trips with wellness in mind. In 2019, the wellness travel industry is expected to climb even more, and, Croatia just happens to be one of the best destinations to suit people’s health interests.
