Years spent in the United States (as exciting as the national parks and Hawaii are) have Americans gagging for international adventures. Maybe that’s all Emily in Parismaybe it’s those royal goals in The Crown. However, according to a recent survey, neither France nor England are on the American wishlist in 2022.

Now, this could be due to several reasons: either travelers have already checked them off their to-do list (judging by our social media feeds, this could indeed be true), or none of the respondents had Netflix subscription.

OK, it’s neither. Skyscannerthe company initiating the investigation, determined the top destinations in America by a increase bookings since 2019 and the country that grabbed the top spot is Qatar. The Middle Eastern nation has seen bookings soar 522% over the past three years, fueled no doubt by the 2022 World Cup (and sadly not a TV series featuring a pretty actress with a fabulous wardrobe. ). This monster event will be the first time a World Cup has been held in the entire Middle East region.

The majority of the list, however, is made up of Caribbean islands. Anguilla, St Barths, Turks and Caicos, the US Virgin Islands, and Antigua and Barbuda all top this year’s trips, no doubt fulfilling a truly American need for sun, sand, and all-you-can-eat buffets. .

To complete the list, we have already seen trending destinations: the Maldives, the United Arab Emirates, Portugal and Costa Rica.
