Rabat – Morocco is the best travel destination for Spaniards who preferred “warmth and the beach” for the coming Christmas and New Year holidays, according to a report released Monday by the online travel agency “Rumbo”.
As the holidays get closer, many Spaniards “have planned Christmas holidays well in advance” the study said.
While others are likely to reserve their flights at the last moment, “it is clear that Spaniards are among those who prefer the heat of the sun and the beach rather than snow and sub-zero temperatures in this time of year,” the report added.
The report compared the reservations made between December 22 and 31, 2017 with the same period last year.
According to this report, the reservations made to warm destinations have increased by 20% this year.
More than 30% of Spanish holiday bookings have chosen Morocco as their destination, followed by Thailand with 20%, Mexico at 14%, and Indonesia at 9%.
The same source revealed that the majority of Spaniards that travel abroad this time of the year are young couples or those without children, representing 40% of Spanish tourists. New York is the most popular destination for families with children.
While some renowned world destinations may be freezing and busy this time of the year, most world tourists are opting for Morocco as an amazing destination thanks to its varied climate and its vigilance in countering terrorist threats.
Thanks to its romantic charm, reflecting both authenticity and modernity, Marrakech made it to the top of the list ahead of 51 other renowned tourist destinations all over the world.
