Aussies skip the ski fields for a Christmas in the Bali tropics

Vicky Karantzavelou - 24 November 2017, 00:14

The agoda booking data shows Australians almost exclusively stay within APAC over the Christmas and New Year period.

SYDNEY - Despite the popular depiction of the far-flung Aussie globetrotter, according to global online booking platform agoda, Bali has toppled Sydney to become the #1 destination for summer holiday travel.  

agoda has compared booking data from 2013-2016 to find the top 10 December holiday destinations for Australians.

agoda's recent Travel and Tech Study found 'food and dining' and 'sun, island, beach' were the most popular travel experiences for Australian Millennials--and Bali offers all of the above. The popular Indonesian island has grown into a lifestyle destination that caters to the Millennial foodie lifestyle, with affordable and stylish 'instagramable' cafes, bars and restaurants, set against a tropical backdrop.

Andrew Edwards, Global Director for Brand and Communications at agoda, comments:

"Bali is a staple destination for many Aussies, and it makes sense that it has become a popular summer holiday spot given families can travel overseas together relatively inexpensively. It has great beauty, diverse experiences, not to mention the cheap food and shopping, so it's little wonder why Aussies continue to fly over in droves every year."

Domestic destinations held their own against popular overseas destinations with Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and the Gold Coast remaining in the top 10.
