Havana, Cuba

Are you still clinging onto summer? As the nights become longer and glimpses of the sun fleeting, you may be packing away your shorts and t-shirts for scarves and big jackets. But don’t succumb to the cold just yet.

The top trending destinations for autumn have been revealed following research from Kayak. The top holiday spots to visit have been calculated by looking at the highest increase in searches between January 1st 2017 and June 8th 2017 for those going away between September 5th 2017 and November 30th 2017. And the findings have picked out Havana as the top trending destination this autumn.

Havana

Interest in holidays to Havana have been growing since President Barack Obama loosened the US’s travel regulations to Cuba. It has been a regular feature on many Cruise & Maritime holiday itineraries, with sun-seekers looking for a perfect balance between culture and gorgeous weather.

The massive rise of 75 percent this year is certainly made up of those people who have grown up fascinated by the once-restricted country. Stepping of off your cruise to Havana is like stepping back in time. Retro cars cruise the streets that have seen next to no change in decades.

Havana also came out as the top trending destination for 2017 as a whole. Beating Reykjavik, Auckland, Bali and Tokyo to take the top spot. 

Lisbon

With a 46 percent increase in interest, Lisbon is the second highest trending city in the world for autumn. Portugal, and Lisbon in particular, is widely tipped to replace Iceland as the new ‘it’ destination for the remainder of 2017 into 2018 and no one is surprised.

A lively nightlife is coupled with brilliant examples of both Modernist and Gothic architecture. For the foodies, head out to one of the many cafes for a coffee and some pastel de nata – a custard filled pastry.

The top 10 trending destinations for autumn:

  1. Havana – 75% increase in interest
  2. Lisbon – 46% increase in interest
  3. Madrid – 38% increase in interest
  4. Barcelona – 32% increase in interest
  5. Amsterdam – 27% increase in interest
  6. Bali – 26% increase in interest
  7. Paris – 24% increase in interest
  8. Rome – 21% increase in interest
  9. London - 17% increase in interest
  10. Tokyo – 15% increase in interest
