What 2023 has in store for travellers
A shift in the style of travelling also caused a shift in the trends of travelling
The hospitality market is in its recovery stages as travel bans are lifted everywhere. With years missed out on travel, people have been planning there destinations early. In fact, leading to the Chinese New Year, flight booking surged by 250 percent in Asia Pacific, reported travel marketing platform Sojern.
Now that more travels have been accounted for, Pressreader revealed new travel trends travellers are adapting and hotels should watch out for:
Smart energy is one trend, since power and energy prices continue to inflate. This could be through the form of automation that minimises unnecessary usage of electricity, temperature regulation, renewable energy generators, and air-source heat pumps. The second trend is authentic local experience since travellers are looking to get a full authentic experience and feel like a local.

Another trend is “bleisure,” which is essentially just business and leisure combined as a trip that treads both the waters of travelling to enjoy and travelling for the sake of business. Wellness tourism is also a trend since there was a growth in the pursuit of maintaining personal wellbeing.
Finally, sustainability. With climate change acting up, more and more people are trying to shift to a more sustainable lifestyle, which is why people would be more willing to pay extra for the sake of supporting more eco-friendly businesses.
In 2023, Forbes predict that most tourists will adopt the the “No-Normal” mindset, which implies that anyone and everyone can travel according to their own agendas. This includes not going to well-known tourist spots, travelling off-season, and essentially doing what you want to do.
However, the travel and tourism industry will be facing some struggles keeping up with the demand, mostly because of labour shortages. This high demand would mean an increase in prices of anything required to travel and some incentives to induce travel.
With all this, the travel and tourism industry will be back to the way it was during pre-pandemic in no time.
