Bulgaria listed as top destination - "Just the Flight"

Bulgaria listed as top destination - "Just the Flight"

8/9/2006 12:24:34 PM

Bulgaria has been revealed as the number one up-and-coming destination for travellers, according to a new survey. The predictions published by online travel company, Opodo suggest that Bulgaria will be the top emerging destination for 2007, closely followed by Russia, Morocco and Cuba.

A large number of holidaymakers and tourists are still choosing to travel to Australia, which came number five on the list, according to Opodo, ranking Brazil and India as sixth and seventh respectively.

Neil Mott Opodo's UK country manager said: "2006 has seen a strong rise in travel to Eastern European countries since whilst being accessible, they still hold a certain 'mystique' for the traveller.

"Bookings to Bulgaria have risen by 40 per cent in the last six months and with the prospect of joining the EU in January 2007, we expect to see a significant increase in the number of tourists heading there to take advantage of the Euro."

Dubai was listed as the eighth destination in the top ten, with China and South Africa coming in at number nine and number ten.

Opodo predicts that the forthcoming Beijing Olympic games in 2008 and the 2010 World Cup, to be hosted by South Africa, will help draw tourists to those nations.

Bulgaria, which shares borders with Romania, Turkey and Greece, has an extensive coastline along the edge of the Black Sea.
