As we welcome the new year, we wanted to take stock of the past 365 days and look back at how travel patterns have emerged over the past year. Here are 5 popular destinations that KrisFlyer members travelled to in 2022!
Australia’s an extremely popular destination and one of the hottest cities to visit is Sydney. There’s plenty to see and do in this city that’s located on the eastern coast of the country – but you can’t miss visiting the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. The latter is one of the most distinctive buildings in the world, so take some time to appreciate the architectural masterpiece. Or consider taking the visit up a notch – book a cruise and see the harbour from the water, before grabbing a good brunch at one of the many cafes in the area.
This hotspot is one that many have visited at least once – some even make it a point to visit this city yearly, and perhaps even multiple times every year. It’s a haven for shopaholics and foodies, but besides the malls and restaurants, there are also a myriad of historic sites in Bangkok that have drawn visitors from all over the world. Most of the famous landmarks are located along the banks of the Chao Phraya River, and riverboats are how you can hop between them. If you’ve only time for one, make it a point to visit Wat Arun for its magnificent Khmer-style spire.
Many also made multiple trips to Malaysia – specifically, Kuala Lumpur, its capital, which is home to the 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers – a pair of glass-and-steel-clad skyscrapers that’s better known as the tallest twin towers in the world. You’ll also find British colonial-era landmarks such as the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, and delectable local eats like banana leaf rice, fish head soup, and more!
Many consider this city as a destination that’s primarily for business travel, but things have changed, and the capital of Indonesia has also proven to be a good choice for leisure travellers who are seeking a short weekend getaway – especially those who love cafe hopping. A myriad of aesthetic cafes have sprung up over the last couple of years, and a good one to consider is Harbour Market 88, which offers laidback Mediterranean vibes for you to relax in while you enjoy a freshly-brewed cup of coffee and some warm bakes.
London is without a doubt, one of the top European cities by visitor traffic numbers, and it’s not hard to see why. This is a place where modernity meets old-world charm; where you’ll find delicious cuisines, endless shopping options, and world-famous iconic sights: Big Ben, the London Eye, and Hyde Park are some of the many attractions in this sprawling metropolis in southern United Kingdom. Tired of bustling city life? Take a day trip to nearby regions like Bath or Stonehenge. It’s little wonder why many have chosen to visit London – here, there are sights that will interest every sort of traveller!
