Holiday Ayo - The world of tourism in 2023 will develop rapidly due to the large number of travelers traveling. Before going on holiday, we will probably consider many things regarding the tourist destination we will choose.
Considerations may include access to activities to be carried out, facilities, and aesthetics. Who would have thought, some destinations would actually have a huge increase in the number of Gen Z visitors.
This shows that this destination may have been considered and become a preference for Gen Z. Data shows that many Gen Z and millennial generations visit certain countries for vacation.
American Express (Amex) Travel conducted research on their booking data to find out which destinations are most popular with Gen Z.
