Make Your Next Trip Extraordinary

10 Travel Destinations on the Rise | August 8, 2017

What are this year’s up-and comers to keep on your radar? Here at, we’ve identified the 10 countries that have climbed the most in popularity within the past year. Of all the countries in the world, these are the 10 that have seen the biggest surge in trip requests from 2016 to 2017, based on inquiries submitted to Ask Wendy and to the Trusted Travel Experts on The WOW List:

  1. Greece
  2. Morocco (where Wendy took her family for spring break)
  3. Vietnam
  4. Cambodia
  5. Canada (especially British Columbia and Newfoundland, two of our favorite provinces)
  6. Portugal (including Lisbon, the Algarve, the Alentejo, and Porto)
  7. Germany
  8. Costa Rica
  9. South Africa
  10. Hungary

Keep in mind, though, that with new waves of travelers flocking to these hot spots, if your goal is to beat the crowds, you may be too late—unless you have a WOW Lister arrange the trip. Instead you might consider a still-under-the-radar destination such as one of these that has not received as many trip requests as it deserves. These gems have not yet piqued the interest of the traveling masses…but they could well be next year’s hits. We recommend:
