Data from booking platform Agoda reveal Filipino travelers pampered themselves with upscale stays in New Year’s Eve 2020.
“Compared to 2019, Pinoy travelers are indulging in 4- to 5-star hotels as their preference this year, nudging 1- to 3.5-star hotels to the second spot.”
The top three domestic destinations in NYE 2020 were the same as the previous year’s, with Manila at the top spot, followed by Cebu and Tagaytay.
Completing the list are Subic, Boracay, Baguio, Laguna, Angeles/Clark, Batangas, and Iloilo.
Filipinos also explored destinations that are “outdoorsy” for a quick respite. Laguna made it to the top 10 domestic list along with Batangas.
“While 2020 might have upended many travelers’ plans, Agoda’s data that 4- to 5-star hotels are most popular among New Year’s Eve bookings in 2020 show us that there’s great desire among travelers to pamper themselves and optimistically usher in the New Year in style,” said Errol Cooke, vice president of partner services at Agoda.
