Dec 19, 2014   18:31 IST 
New Delhi, Delhi, India

The countdown to the New Year has begun and everyone is in a holiday mood. This is the time when people around the world travel, party and celebrate with generous helpings of food and drinks. Be it India or abroad, everyone is looking for interesting places to visit and TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel site brings you the Top New Year Destinations* that people from India and specifically New Delhi are planning to visit.

 

Nikhil Ganju, Country Manager, TripAdvisor saysGetting out of the city to bring in the new year has been a trend for a long while now. As a large number of Indians get ready to pack their bags and travel to destinations known as well as offbeat, TripAdvisor brings you the definitive list of the places that they will be travelling to. While Goa remains a favourite, this year's list includes a healthy dose of international destinations, indicating the importance being attached to the occasion. What is most interesting to see is how the accommodation preferences have evolved over years. 41% travelers prefer to stay in hotels of different kinds whereas 23% prefer Bed & Breakfast Inns for their new year holiday. Also, the experimentative side of Indian travellers is clearly emerging with a significant share 36% opting for 'alternate' accommodations such as campgrounds, condos, vacation rentals, hostels, villas and even temple lodgings etc. We wish Indian travellers many more adventures in 2015!
