Global travelers love Canada

With Canada’s 150th anniversary approaching, it is projected that the country will have an uptick in popularity this year, according to Travelzoo’s Spring 2017 Travel Trends Survey. Results show that interest in visiting Canada for Americans and Germans nearly doubled from 2016. In addition, interest from Chinese, Spanish and British travelers increased in 2017. Canadian respondents also voted Canada their number one destination this year, tied with perennial beach favorite, the Caribbean, and beating last year’s number one choice, the United States.

Canadians favorite places to visit within the country:

• British Columbia was the most popular province, followed closely by Ontario. Alberta came in third.

• The top Canadian must-see destinations/attractions were Banff and Lake Louise in Alberta, followed by Niagara Falls, Ontario.

• A quarter of those polled said they were planning to travel within Canada at least twice this year. A further 29 percent said they would travel within Canada four times or more in 2017.
