There’s a fierce competition to get your business in the travel industry. Some airlines have started offering free stopovers to woo their customers. This allows you to see perhaps another country on your way to your destination. In fact, “stopovers” are up by 90 percent on Pinterest.

Foodie tourism

Eating local is always part of exploring another country, but now some travelers are going the extra mile by planning their entire itineraries around food.

Once again, searches for ‘food guides’ and ‘wine trips’ are up 207 and 199 percent respectively on Pinterest.


Surf’s up

While 2017 was the year of wellness retreats, Pinterest says that 2018 is the year of more fast-paced getaways such as surf classes and bike tours.


Searching for Westeros

Game of Thrones is so popular that some people are touring the film locations of this and other shows, including Northern Ireland, Iceland, Croatia, and Morrocco.
