Global Travel Report: Where to Go Right Now

This article was written by . Visit for the original article.

Wondering where everyone is going and how they are traveling these days? On Wednesday, Sojern released its latest Global Travel Insights Report, analyzing more than 600 million traveler data points to show up-to-the-minute trends across the globe. Here are some of the highlights:

Top 10 Destinations

Global Travel Report: Where to Go Right Now

The countries topping the most-searched list: the United States, Spain, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, China, Russia, Germany, Italy, and Greece. Another winner is Japan, which saw a spike in flight searches from Chinese travelers.

Who is Going Where

The numbers reveal that solo travel is on the rise, especially to the Asia-Pacific region, while couples are increasingly bound for Latin America. Families? They’re mostly headed to Europe.

North America Travel Trends

No surprise to anyone who has been in Times Square lately and heard all the foreign accents: the most-searched destination for European travelers heading to the U.S. is New York City, which is also a hit with Latin American travelers (who loved Miami, too). Meanwhile, Asia-Pacific travelers have their sights set on Los Angeles and San Francisco. Sojern’s survey also revealed the top-searched domestic spots for Americans (Miami, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles) and how they’re traveling. Group travel is increasing, and this summer, Fourth of July and Labor Day (no surprise) were top times to travel.

Latin America Travel Trends

Turns out Latin Americans are traveling in pairs: 20 percent of flight searches are made by couples, more than anywhere else. And where is everyone headed? Americans are enamored with Mexico (particularly vacation hotspots like Cancun), while up-and-coming markets like China go wild for Mexico and Brazil.

Europe Travel Trends

The hottest European destinations? London, Paris, Barcelona, and Mallorca. But the runaway success story is Spain, which was tops the list with families, groups, and solo travelers. Meanwhile, Dublin is a top spot for British business travelers. Interestingly: short trips account for 39 percent of all European searches, while nearly a third of all trips are planned 101 days or more in advance, especially for travel to the U.K. and the Netherlands. Guess you want to make those reservations early, before prices spike and flights sell out.

Asia-Pacific Travel Trends


(Photo: Sojern)

If you’re going to make the long-haul trip to Asia, you’re going to stay awhile: Sojern found that 47 percent of all flight searches to the region are by foreigners looking to stay eight days. On the other hand, local tourists are going for five days or less. And who is headed to the Asia Pacific region? Solo travelers, with 81 percent of inbound travelers looking to fly by themselves. Most likely, these are business travelers or backpackers.

The Impact of World Events


(Photo: Sojern)

If you caught World Cup fever last summer, this one is a no brainer: big sports events and festivals had a major impact on travel. In Brazil, tourism spiked and flight searches more than doubled month over month. The Incheon Games registered, as well, with a 19-percent increase in interest in South Korea. And Germany’s Oktoberfest was a winner, too, especially with travelers from the U.S. and Italy. As they say in Munich: prost!

It takes a little culture to jump-start tourism

— As international tourist destinations go, Clarksdale is a little, well, we’ll let the mayor himself describe it:

“We pride ourselves on being gritty,” Bill Luckett said to a group of visiting food writers in September.

“This is no Ritz-Carlton, OK? You want that, go to Atlanta.”

To quote Elvis himself, though: That’s all right, Mama. That’s all right with him. People from all over the world travel to Clarksdale, about 90 minutes south of Memphis, Tenn., in the heart of the Mississippi Delta.

So what has Clarksdale got that a lot of small towns wish they had? Culture – and that’s something that some towns in North Carolina are starting to harness as well.

Overseas visitors

Clarksdale is at the heart of what some call the American Music Triangle, between Nashville, Tenn., Memphis and New Orleans. Name a blues legend and there’s a Clarksdale connection: Son House, Sam Cooke and John Lee Hooker were born there. Bessie Smith died there. And Robert Johnson made his deal with the Devil at the crossroads on the outskirts of town.

When you’re on a blues crawl through clubs like Red’s or the Ground Zero, co-owned by Luckett and actor Morgan Freeman, the people next to you may be Australian, British or French. Or it might be a celebrity: Guys like Robert Plant regularly sneak into town.

But like a lot of old towns in rural settings, Clarksdale can look a little rundown in the hard light of day. For hotel arrangements, you might end up at the Riverside, where the bathrooms are down the hall, or the Lofts at the 5  & 10, hip rooms upstairs from what used to be a novelty store.

For restaurants, you’ll find high-end tacos at the Oxbow, but dining is mostly limited to local tamales and barbecue.

Culinary attractions

Still, Clarksdale is writing the playbook for cultural tourism, says Suzanne Brown, the media relations specialist with Visit N.C., part of the N.C. Division of Tourism.

“Towns that know who they are and build on that, they know what’s important,” she says. “I love driving through these towns that once were abandoned and now there are signs of life.”

Culinary tourism has become a driver for a lot of small towns in North Carolina, she says – and not just barbecue. Stop in Saxapahaw, near Chapel Hill, which is now an artists’ community with two restaurants. Or in Spruce Pine in the mountains – the Knife & Fork Restaurant was named one of the best 100 restaurants in the South by Southern Living.

The best example? Kinston, about 90 minutes from Raleigh, where much of the downtown was empty after tobacco farming bottomed out. Now Vivian Howard’s restaurant, The Chef & and the Farmer, and a related PBS show, “A Chef’s Life,” have started to draw visitors.

Kinston now has Mother Earth Brewing, a second Howard restaurant (and sort of a third – her sister owns the Queen Street Deli) and an Asian fusion restaurant, Ginger 18. A third B&B is opening soon to handle the visitors.

While dining used to be the fifth most-frequent subject searched on Kinston’s website, now it’s No. 1. And out-of-state contacts, people from out of the state who request information, have tripled.

Food may not be the only draw, either. The town has an active arts council that supports Kinston as the start of the African American Music Trails of Eastern North Carolina. Covering eight counties, it is a self-guided music experience of gospel, blues and R&B, based on a book of the same name by Sarah Bryan, Beverly Patterson and Michelle Lanier. (The online guide is being built by the N.C. Arts Council.)

‘Curiosity factor’

Another N.C. town that hopes to draw its own visitors for music is Shelby, with the Earl Scruggs Center.

“Shelby is a nice town, and the Scruggs center gives you a real reason to go there,” says Brown. “With restaurants, there are similar things (to draw visitors). It puts you on the map and gets people thinking about you.”

Is a tourist economy stable, though? Brown points out that even in the economic downturn, people still took trips. They just took shorter, closer trips. So it can be “Goodbye, Paris – hello, Saxapahaw.”

“Travel is one of those things people tend to do, no matter what,” says Brown.

When people travel in America, they sometimes want the connection and closeness of small-town culture, if that culture is well-organized enough to make it easy to experience in a couple of days. That’s what Clarksdale, with two museums and a calendar of music festivals, has really figured out.

“We have the curiosity factor,” says Malcolm White, director of the Mississippi Arts Commission and chair of the Mississippi Blues Commission.

“We have a great story to tell.”

Travel to the ancient world of the Maya at the Museum of Science

By Chris Bergeron

This article was written by Chris Bergeron. To view the original article visit

BOSTON – Before his death more than 1,100 years ago in present-day Belize, the Maya ruler called Great Scrolled Skull expected to journey through the underworld and climb the “world tree’’ to be reborn into the sky as a god.

His body was placed in a grand tomb at Santa Rita Corozal filled with decorated pottery, shell jewelry and precious ornaments including a jade mask likely worn as a necklace or belt ornament to symbolize his power.

Instead of accompanying Great Scrolled Skull to his divine rebirth, his striking green mask, ceramic bowls, knives and other prestigious objects have journeyed to the Museum of Science as part of “Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed.’’

The largest exhibition on the ancient Maya ever shown in the U.S., it brings to Boston 250 artifacts, imposing replicas of carved monuments known as stelae and murals, and more than a dozen interactive devices to bring alive a Mesoamerican civilization of remarkable achievements still obscured by misconceptions.

William Saturno, an archaeologist who discovered the oldest intact Maya murals ever found, said the current exhibit will introduce visitors to “the richness of what Maya culture has to offer.’’

Recalling his excitement 24 years ago on first seeing the Maya ruins of Palenque, Mexico, he said visitors to the exhibit – especially children – will feel that same wonder discovering an ancient civilization of stunning complexity.

“The world is revealed in the galleries upstairs,’’ said Saturno, an assistant professor of archaeology at Boston University, “but much more has been left for future generations to find.’’

At its best, this exhibit conveys that wonder through a mix of rare artifacts, accurate replicas of an underworld cave, a vibrant mural room and Great Scrolled Skull’s burial site along with interactive devices that let visitors experience Maya daily life.

The exhibit was produced by the Science Museum of Minnesota in partnership with the Museum of Science in Boston, the San Diego Natural History Museum and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Admission to “Maya’’ will be by timed ticket only and will include a ticket to the general Exhibit Halls that can be used the same day or within six months.

Entering the show, visitors pass through the first of nine galleries, “Unlocking the Maya Past,’’ with wall text in English and Spanish, that describes the breadth of Maya civilization during the Classic Period (250 A.D. to 900 A.D.) that extended throughout a vast network of cities and villages across the Yucatan Peninsular in Mexico to Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador.

Passing through serpentine galleries, in half-light to protect fragile artifacts, visitors will learn about the carved hieroglyphs Maya used to record their history, how they built elaborate temples and closely studied the heavens to make a calendar of remarkable accuracy.

Several visitors said objects and activities provided intimates glimpses into a fascinating culture.

Gazing intently at the fierce image carved on a stele of a god-king named “Fire-burning Celestial Lightning God’’ who beheaded the ruler of Copan around 750 A.D. in modern Honduras, Tom Morway said, “I can sort of imagine it. It seems very far away. I’d really like to go there and see it for myself.’’

Abe Winnettknoy, 10, of Concord, New Hampshire, used an interactive device that translated Maya glyphs to name himself Radiant Jaguar and his mother, Laura, became Princess Shark.

Mother and daughter Jeannine and Emily Josephs viewed a section about the Maya ceremonial ball game that was played on stone courts by players who struck a rubber ball with their hips and, in later versions, tried to knock it through rings. With some difficulty, 13-year-old Emily lifted a replica of the ball on a frame and guessed it weighed “nearly 10 pounds.’’

Throughout the opening day tour, visitors snapped cellphone photos of replicas of towering stelae bearing carved faces of kings and three-dimensional seated figures on a recreated portion of the famous frieze from the El Castillo pyramid in Xunatunich in Belize.

Leading his wife and son through the show, Saturno praised the exhibit for “providing a non-caricatured portrait of Maya people,’’ including the 6 million people living today in Central America.

And he slammed Mel Gibson’s 2006 movie “Apocalypto’’ as “horrible on so many levels’’ because it stereotyped Maya culture as “chronically violent and full of ritual sacrifices without evidence.’’

“I urge visitors to find the humanity of Maya people through these fantastic artifacts,’’ said Saturno.

After spending the last 20 years traveling between the jungles of Mexico, Guatemala and his home in Boston, Saturno observed “In the most spectacular way, those worlds are brought together in this exhibit.’’

Find the Best Local Eats: 7 Must-Have Apps for the Traveling Foodie

By Andy Wang

This article was written by Andy Wang. Visit to see the original article.

If one of your favorite things about travel is trying new food, you know that navigating through a city’s restaurant scene can be as difficult as it is delicious, no matter how many Yelp reviews you peruse or OpenTable points you have. Trustworthy recommendations can be hard to find, lines are long, navigating through a big menu is tricky, and getting a good reservation often seems like a magic trick that only concierges can perform.

Thankfully, a new generation of apps and websites makes things much easier. Here are seven appetizing options.



Use Table 8 for hard to get reservations (Photo: Table8)

Bestia is one of the hottest restaurants in Los Angeles. Tables are booked weeks in advance, and walk-in diners often endure long waits to sit down for chef Ori Menashe’s pasta and charcuterie. But Table8, a new VIP reservations app, can get you a prime-time table there for $20. Other A-list L.A. reservations available for $20 through Table8 include star-chef spots like Walter Manzke’s République, Suzanne Goin’s A.O.C., Tin Vuong’s Little Sister, and the much-coveted patio at Vartan Abgaryan’s Cliff’s Edge. On a recent Friday night, we used Table8 for a 8 p.m. reservation at République. We showed up 10 minutes early and the place was jammed, but we were seated quickly, at a table next to one with two cast members of Glee. By 8 p.m., our drink order was in. Table8 launched in San Francisco and Los Angeles earlier this year, with plans to add New York this fall and 15 to 20 cities by the end of 2015.

Book reservations on demand with Resy. (Photo: Resy)

Resy is a prime-time reservations service that has launched in New York with a well-curated list of restaurants like downtown king Keith McNally’s Minetta Tavern, celebrated chefs Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette’s Toro, and Iron Chef Marc Forgione’s American Cut. Some reservations are free, and others available on the app range from $4 to $20 (and up) depending on demand. The app will let you know whether you’re booking the main dining room, bar seats, or an outdoor table at neighborhood favorites across the city. Resy has its eye on expanding into other markets including Los Angeles and Miami.



OrderAhead offers delivery from restaurants that don’t typically deliver. (Photo: OrderAhead)

Visiting Washington, D.C., and craving a burger from Shake Shack, but don’t feel like standing in line? No problem:OrderAhead will deliver your SmokeShack. (That’s a cheeseburger with bacon and chopped cherry peppers; trust us, this is the burger you want.) OrderAhead, which launched as a takeout service, now also offers delivery from restaurants that typically don’t deliver in big markets like the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and D.C. That means, for example, pizzas from Gjelina and sushi from Sugarfish if you’re on L.A.’s Westside — all in the comfort of your own hotel room.



Use Foodspotting to see what you can order before you get to the restaurant. (Photo: Foodspotting)

Foodspotting lets you view photos of the best dishes at restaurants, so you’ll know not just where to go but also what to order. It’s like a curated version of Instagram, focusing on what you might want to have for dinner in the place you’re visiting. You can view the most popular dishes in a city or sign in with Facebook and see where your friends have been and what dishes they thought were worthy to share.

Find independently owned restaurants using Local Eats. (Photo: LocalEats)

You didn’t travel cross-country to have Yelp recommend you go to a Cheesecake Factory, so get your restaurant recommendations on LocalEats. This site ignores chain restaurants and spotlights independently owned local favorites in major cities. It’s useful whether you want a burrito in Houston or Dungeness crab in Seattle.



Who needs a waitress? Settle your own bill with TabbedOut. (Photo: TabbedOut)

You’ve finished your dinner and are ready to go, but you can’t find your server for the check. TabbedOut solves this problem at more than 5,000 locations (including both restaurants and bars) nationwide. You pay for your meal plus tip using your phone and leave the restaurant whenever you’re ready. Multiple users can split the bill, solving another problem that always seems to slow down your night.



Order the best food from around the country straight to your door with Goldbely. (Photo: Goldbely)

If your travels have you dreaming of the Texas barbecue or treats from New York’s Momofuku Milk Bar you had on your summer vacation, GoldBely will mail-order your fix to you, anywhere in the country. This fancy-pants online food store has deep-dish Chicago pizza from Lou Malnati’s, lobster pot pies from Maine’s Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co., ribs from the incomparable Salt Lick in Driftwood, Texas, and so much more. Dessert can be the decadent Candy Bar Pie from Momofuku Milk Bar or a pecan pie from Savannah’s Original Candy Kitchen. Browse by region and create your own feast by ordering some of the country’s most beloved dishes. Whether you want bagels, chowder, sausages, or ice cream, Goldbely will bring them to you.

Want to try long-distance space travel? Go to a convention

By Dennis Powell

This article was written by Dennis Powell. For the original version visit:

You may have wondered at one time or another about space flight.

By this I do not mean little hops to low Earth orbit, which is barely space at all, but instead the years-, decades-, even generations-long flights to locations outside our solar system.

Much speculation has been devoted to this topic, all in the realm of science fiction – even that done by scientists is at this point science fiction. Some of the speculation puts the passengers who will populate the far-away planet into a kind of suspended animation (and in movies, this usually goes terribly wrong, leaving one person or a handful of persons all alone in distant space). Some of it has everyone alive and awake, living in conditions we might expect aboard a Russian diesel submarine.

And some proposes enormous spaceships, with fields of growing plants metabolizing carbon dioxide and light into oxygen and food for the journey and providing pleasant places to stroll during the long, long space flight. There might be waterfalls, gathering places, activities suited to a small (or not-so-small) community.

I’ve recently had the opportunity to think about that kind of spaceship, for I have witnessed the closest thing we have to it on our planet today: I have been to a convention.

You, too, may have been to a convention. There are lots of them. Most industries and associations have conventions. There even is an industry made up of people who speak at conventions.

That is a fairly easy profession. Every convention offers about a dozen speeches, usually called “sessions,” on “the state of the industry,” how to get people who owe you money to pay you, how to borrow money at favorable rates, and so on. These topics tend to be industry-agnostic. By changing a few words, the speech for the society of liquid-waste-disposal executives would be just fine for, say, the organization of business incubators (presuming there still is one; I know there used to be).

There are so many conventions that there is probably a convention of the convention industry. Or rather “convention professionals,” as they surely would call themselves.

Conventions have, yes, speeches in common. They also have locations in common. Organizations tend to hold their conventions in exotic or desirable locales – New Orleans, or Miami, Austin perhaps – but if my experience is exemplary, it doesn’t matter where the conventions are.

Here’s why: the convention I attended was in Nashville. Nashville is an interesting place, but if the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center had been located in a bubble in the midst of a toxic-waste dump it would have made no difference. As with an intergalactic spaceship, once one enters, one does not leave.

My colleagues and I arrived on Saturday afternoon and remained there until convention’s end Wednesday morning. That an interesting city was located nearby made no difference, because nobody saw it. (The lone nods toward Nashvilleness were the presence in one of many long corridors of an air studio of the famous WSM Radio, expensive souvenirs that alluded to country music, and expensive drinks that could be purchased in expensive cowboy-boot-shaped plastic mugs that were yours to keep.)

Like the long-haul space vehicles destined to carry humanity to planets unknown, the place is self-contained (by design, I think, the better to relieve you of your money). It covers about 180 acres. It has miles of corridors; I imagine you could run a marathon there without ever going outside and without visiting the same place twice.

It has four jungles, one for each of the connected sections, which are called “Cascades,” “Garden Conservatory,” “Magnolia,” and “Delta.” So there’s room for exercise – indeed, exercise is a requirement; going from one’s room to one’s convention involves a hefty hike and the possibility of getting lost, perhaps forever. (I wondered if search parties were sent out each night to recover the lost and the dead, though the latter might well be consumed immediately by the jungles. Indeed, I bet the warm, moist jungles are a real microbes’ delight during flu season or during outbreaks of other bugs we hear about from time to time. That is another issue not unknown to science fiction.)

There were several conventions underway while we were there, the attendees distinguished by the different styles of name tags worn about the neck. The different conventions offered a variety of entertainment, too. One, something having to do with (deliberately) non-profit companies, placed its live bands in the hallway, where they could be enjoyed by all. Others offered country rockers at deafening volume, making conversing even with the person next to you difficult. This could be trouble during a long space adventure, causing tension between those who get tinnitus and those who do not.

Though I suspect the real concern would be warfare between, say, the Magnolias and the Deltas. The Magnolias have the radio station, while the Deltas have the hamburger joint (pickles are an extra 75 cents and no, I didn’t make that up). The Deltas have an island, though there are many walkways over it, so it’s not especially defensible.

Or it might be that after a few generations, space travelers would get used to the place.

Just as convention speakers surely get used to conventions. Though I do wonder if sometimes they get confused, the way rock bands occasionally do, and begin their presentations by shouting, “Hello, National Cabbage Growers Alliance!” when they’re speaking instead to the American Society of Scrap Metal Collectors. After which that suspended-animation thing would probably sound pretty good.

Travel To Go shares great traveling tips.

Everyone wants to enjoy a perfect trip every time that they get ready for a getaway. Traveling with friends or family can be one of the best ways to really enjoy a trip because it allows loved ones to bond over the experiences that they have and create lasting memories together. Travel To Go knows that planning a group trip can be a fun experience that everyone should consider, and if you are planning on taking a trip with your friends of family, you can use some of these tips to help you make every aspect of the vacation fun and easy.

Split up duties: If you have many people joining in on the trip, it will make the preparation and execution of the plans easier if each and every person in the group is given a task. Have one person be responsible for packing the bags in the car, one in charge of getting the tickets, and another put together the budget. This will make the process faster and everyone will be included in the process.

Meet and decide: If you want to make sure that everyone in the group is being heard and has a hand in the planning, it is important for everyone to meet and share their opinions about the trip. Travel To Go says that this will help the group communicate and be on the lookout for any conflict that could be a bigger problem down the road.

Don’t be afraid to split: While you should be sure to pick some activities to enjoy as a group, it is important to remember that it is ok to have individual experiences as well. If different members want to try different things, they can always try some individual exploring and then meet back up to talk about their experiences later on. This will still allow each person to customize their experience even though they are traveling as a group.
