Australians are continuing their long love affair with Bali, with the Indonesian hotspot ranking as most popular international holiday destination in 2014.
Hotels.com revealed this unsurprising result after their latest Hotel Price Index (HPI) was conducted, which also showed a resurgence in the popularity of Thailand.
West coast beach town Patong and Thai capital Bangkok landed in the top 10 most popular for Aussie travellers, while Singapore held onto its position as third most popular for Aussies.
Tokyo jumped up two spots to fifth position, while Hong Kong came in at number six.
The love being felt by Asia is thanks in part to a weaker Aussie/US dollar exchange rate throughout 2014, which saw travellers from down under staying closer to home.
New York and Honolulu were the only two US spots to make in on the top 10 list, while even the bright lights of Vegas dropped down to 12th place.
Hotels.com’s regional director for Australia, New Zealand & Singapore, Katherine Cole, said the figures show Australians are becoming savvier with their spending, seeking out better value for money destinations closer to home.
“One of the best ways to reduce holiday costs is by taking advantage of the many competitive deals and promotions available. As the hotels experts, Hotels.com offers a wide range of hotel choices, helping holidaymakers get more bang for their buck,” she said.
