As the world eventually starts to reopen, we can finally start getting excited about travel again – and boy oh boy, there’s a heck of a lot to be excited about! We’ve been having a think about destinations we reckon will be HUGE in 2022. Read on…
We think desire for Australia will be especially high since its been closed to international travellers for almost two years, and there will be a lot of pent-up desire to get Down Under to explore the amazing landscapes & buzzing cities. Plus it’s a top spot for working holidays and demand is super high right now for those employees that previously would have held those roles (bar staff, farm workers etc). With a clear route to reopening now laid out, 2022 will be a great year for travelling to Australia!

Since November 2021, Thailand has reopened to vaccinated travellers from certain countries (including US, Canada, UK & Australia). With mass tourism likely to take a few months to get back into full swing, the first half of 2022 would be a great time to visit to enjoy the amazing cultural and natural attractions without the heaving crowds you often have to endure in more normal times. Plus, its Covid cases have been steadily decreasing for months (there hasn’t been a new wave since the first half of 2021).

Having spent long periods over the last couple of years cooped up indoors, what better way to celebrate a return to fresh air and freedom than visiting some of the most remote and untouched landscapes in the world. Iceland has it all: majestic waterfalls, jaw-dropping mountainscapes, lava-spewing volcanoes, pristine glaciers, thermal lagoons and explosive geysers. At times it can feel like being on an alien planet – perfect if Earth has started to feel strangely claustrophobic over the last couple of years!

Tokyo has always been a brilliant city to visit – it’s like walking into the future for most people – but it’s got even more up its sleeve now that it’s hosted the Olympic Games (eventually!). At the Japan Olympic Museum you can find out the interesting history behind the event, helped with seriously high-tech exhibits that mark a thrilling change from the usual museum protocol of glass cabinets and ‘do not touch’ signs. The Tokyo Waterfront City is a great spot for the gram with the Olympic Rings and skyline behind, and the Komazawa Olympic Park is perfect for a casual stroll when you want a break from the downtown crowds.
