Most people like to celebrate the new year a bit closer to home, but some still prefer to travel somewhere special to catch the fireworks or maybe spend some quality time with loved ones. Based on the 2016 flight demand data and 2017 destination search data, Expedia is able to predict where most people will be when the clock strikes midnight on 31 December 2017, when to book and how to get the best deals.
“With quick tips from Expedia and a little research, travellers can grab hold of great deals to ring in the New Year at an amazing destination of their choice. Even during popular travel windows like New Year’s Eve (NYE), you can save up to 40% or more on prices just by bundling your flight and hotel, or take advantage of the Black Friday deals this weekend (24 to 27 November 2017), with up to 50% for hotels at Expedia.com.my.”
This New Year’s Eve, Malaysians are putting their focus on Bangkok, Langkawi and Taipei, topping the list of the most popular destination last year and became the most searched destination during the NYE period.
