Top 5 searched destinations

December 9, 2014

Have you ever wondered what the most popular destinations are? These change from time to time, but we have prepared for you the top 5 most searched destinations based on all the data PaperFlies has gathered over the years. How many of these places can you tick off your list?

1. Bangkok


The capital city of Thailand is the number one destination and not without a reason . The place is absolutely amazing, in any possible aspect. Cheap living, amazing food and the most friendly people on Earth. In the sense of freedom and tolerance, it can be compared to Amsterdam. Weather wise – not so much, as the temperature in Bangkok can reach up to 40 degrees, all year long. You simply cannot get bored here. Just go to one of the famous gay streets or the Sukhumvit party area, and within five minutes you will find yourself meeting new people from around the world.

2. New York


The place is commonly described as a city that never sleeps. Indeed, there are so many clubs/bars/ restaurants open 24/7, that sometimes you wish you could give up sleeping. There is a neighbourhood for everybody; Hipsters love Williamsburg and Soho, art lovers are found in Chelsea and mainstreamers go for Times Square. Without a doubt everybody will find something amazing here.

3. Bali

Bali- an island many people describe as heaven on Earth. On the contrary to the first two positions, Bali can be seen as an oasis of relaxation. Here you mainly come to rest, get inspired and focus on taking care of your “inner garden”. Peaceful, sunny holidays filled with cultural experiences, water sports, friendly people and exotic food. You could imagine heaven like that, couldn’t you?

4. Barcelona


The Catalonian city can be simply described as a piece of art and it’s all thanks to Gaudi. Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, Casa Mila, it’s all him. Except for the majestic architecture, people love it for the crazy night life that happens in La Barceloneta and following mornings, when you can rest on the beach and enjoy Mediterranean climate, food and vibes.

5. Cape Town

Cape Town, a Dutch colony back in the day, is like a hip cultural melting pot of South Africa. Especially popular among sport lovers, as you can basically do anything here: from hiking to abseiling, bungee jumping, motorcycling to skydiving or swimming with sharks. Cape Town has it all. Even if you’re not a fan of sports, do not worry. You can always relax on the beach and focus on food. Don’t forget to experience the South African nightlife. Longstreet and Waterfront are our personal favourites.
