Research has shown that travel is among the top priorities for people in 2020. This was not always the case. Younger people spend more on travel than middle-aged and older people. Therefore, generation Z – the generation also called “post-millennials” – are the heaviest Indian spenders when it comes to travel. The line graph below clearly elucidates this trend.

In 2019, Indians spent up to 11% of their yearly disposable income on leisure travel and vacations. This percentage is akin to the annual travel expenditure of people in developed countries like the US, Britain and Australia.
Traveling is a great way to expand the horizons of your mind and your taste buds. People travel to get a break, to find inspiration, and to taste food they won’t get to taste elsewhere. Have you been thinking of taking a solo trip but are intimidated by the costs?
Are you a newly married couple that wants to have a new experience together without burning a hole in your joint savings amount?
Or do you want to take a family trip without touching your retirement funds or your child’s education corpus?

1. Hong Kong
Hong Kong gets more tourists per annum than any other city in the world – and there are good reasons for this. The Hong Kong Harbor puts up light shows at night. Hong Kong’s skyline is gorgeous enough to warrant a special point called The Victoria Peak from where you can soak in the sight with the help of telescopes. Hong Kong has one of the biggest Buddha statues in the world – and it’s surrounded by scenic forests. Not sold yet? Hong Kong has an iconic Disneyland where you can enjoy all the classic Disney theme parks along with rides inspired by Chinese culture.
London has something for everyone. The history nerds can visit Buckingham Palace and enjoy the change of guard that happens every morning at 11 A.M. The art lovers can go to The British Museum to see some Egyptian mummies and to the National Gallery to see paintings by Leonardo Da Vinci. Those who follow all the political action with keen ears will get the treat of their lives by visiting the war room that Churchill used to direct military action in World War 2.
Paris is as iconic as a city can get. It boasts of the world-famous Eiffel Tower as well as the museum of Louvre -a venue that used to be the Palace residence of French kings. Take in the charm of the city by visiting iconic monuments like the Panthéon, the Arc de Triomphe and the Notre Dame Cathedral (now in the process of being rebuilt). However, the real allure of Paris lies in its hidden gems: its cobblestoned alleyways, quaint cafes and avant-garde art galleries. Don’t limit your Paris trip to the well-known and popular; give the obscure a try too!
Bangkok is a very vibrant vacation spot. It is world-famous for its diverse and delicious street food. MBK Center – one of the largest shopping plazas anywhere in the world – is in Bangkok. Then there is the unforgettable Grand Palace – the official residence of the king of Thailand that is partially open to tourists. Apart from taking in the sights, make sure you have a taste of the delicacies Thai cuisine has to offer, too!
Switzerland is a great choice for a winter vacation for those who enjoy being amongst snow-capped mountains. Lucerne, a town in Switzerland, is known for its medieval architecture situated among the backdrop of gorgeous mountains. While in Switzerland, you can also get your hands on some Swiss chocolate and Swiss timepieces that don’t export to anywhere else in the world. Are you worried about the expenses you might incur on a trip like this? Put an end to your worries by taking out a travel loan from Finserv MARKETS.
