Main 2012 Tourism Trends

News JWT, the American marketing and advertising agency, has published its main trends in tourism for 2012. According to the company, all main trends of the next year can be in short described as Myanmar and Zimbabwe travelling, garden camping, female only floors, social seating and insta-cations.

Various services targeted at making our lives more convenient will be blooming in 2012. For example, special mobile applications will help you to call a taxi without any need to call somewhere or ask a receptionist. One of such services is called Uber and it already works in some US cities and in Paris. Another interesting service is connected with turning guests’ photos and snapshots into physical postcards.

Today many women travel alone and that is the reason why so many hotels in large cities start offering women-only floors. Here female guests will find not only enhanced security, but also additional amenities, beauty products or fashion magazines. Some hotels have gone even further, offering female only tables in restaurants.

Garden camping is the new idea that has appeared in the UK. Here people rent their back yards to visitors who camp there. The cost of rent is very affordable. Some say this is going to be a new boom during the London Olympics.

Mini-vacations become very popular, and so people do not have time for long excursions. However, short adventurous experiences are highly appreciated.

Myanmar and Zimbabwe may become hot spots for 2012. The first country is a wonderful place full of Buddhist temples and pagodas. The improvement of diplomatic relations with other countries means Myanmar becomes available for tourists. Zimbabwe is the location of one of the Seven Wonders of the World – Victoria Falls. Tourists will also find here best game parks in whole Africa.
