#1 Post by Ho Really » Fri Dec 21, 2012 1:21 am

Looks like we're in an up-and-coming list for 2013 according to an American travel agent franchisor: the Travel Leaders Franchise Group, the largest in North America with 1,250 full-service agencies.

Top “Up and Coming” International Destinations:

When asked for their expert findings, Travel Leaders Group agents nationally indicate Croatia remains the top “up and coming” international destination within Europe, New Zealand is the hot new destination in the Pacific, Vietnam is still tops within Asia, and Ecuador (including the Galapagos) is the up-and-comer over Panama among destinations within Central/South America.
  • Europe “Up and Coming”: Croatia (34.9%), Turkey (12.9%), Czech Republic (12.2%), Portugal (10.9%), and Iceland (9.87%)
  • Pacific “Up and Coming”: New Zealand (27.8%), Fiji (13.6%), Tahiti (13.0%), Bora Bora (12.8%), and Australia – South Australia (5.4%). It should be noted that if Australia wasn’t broken out by state, it would be second behind New Zealand with 16.3%.
  • Asia/Southeast Asia “Up and Coming”: Vietnam (48.3%), Indonesia (7.6%), Burma/Myanmar (7.2%), Cambodia (7.2%), and Malaysia (6.8%).
  • Central/South America “Up and Coming”: Ecuador and Galapagos Islands (18.2%), Panama (17.5%), Peru (17.1%), Brazil (16.8%), and Argentina (10.5%).

If you visit the link above you'll notice a very familiar image in their header of a vineyard in a famous valley. Have a guess.
