A lot of people believe there is a difference between travelling and going on a holiday, regardless of the location.
A holiday is more like a vacation: lazing about on sunny lounges at a resort by the pool.
But travelling, that's all about is exploring new places, trying fresh foods, meeting locals and.. well, you get the idea.
We'll leave that debate for you to decide, but what we can offer is a list of the most popular holiday spots for 2018, because after all booking in advance is a great way to save big bucks.
KAYAK.com.au has done the hard yards, analysing data from millions of online searches to predict the holiday destinations that are the must-sees of 2018.

What are the best holiday destinations for 2018?

Bali

Our neighbour Bali has come in at number one!
It’s a famous holiday spot for boozy Aussies, but if you steer clear of the surfers’ party paradise in Kuta and stick to the resort town of Seminyak, you’ll find that Bali is also the perfect place to unwind, pamper and luxuriate.

Tokyo

London

Los Angeles

Honolulu

Phuket

Singapore

Bangkok

Ho Chi Minh City

Auckland

These are the travel destinations we are searching the most, with a growing demand for tropical islands and a slight decline in global cities.
