Already thinking of where to go next year? According to the Huffington Post, Portugal is the country everybody will be visiting.
To support this claim, Huffington Post gathers the latest ranks that put Portugal on the top, like Travel + Leisure’s choice for Portugal as “destination of the year”, referring to Portugal as “hotter than ever”, and Lonely Planet nomination of Azores, “the next Iceland”, as one of the best regions in the world to visit next year.
The article emphasizes the city of Lisbon, which is becoming more and more trendy, not only as a place to visit but also live and retire. Algarve, the Minho region and the lesser-known yet fancy Comporta are also highlighted.
The number of tourists visiting Portugal has been increasing for 4 years in a row. One of the highest growth rates is registered among American tourists. Portuguese airlines company TAP has 23 flights per week to the USA, three times more than last year. Additionally, this month TAP has been nominated as the best European company flying to this country by Global Traveler magazine.
To sum up, as Huffington Post puts it “Portugal, the destination of your most stunningly beautiful dreams.”
