Paris made both lists: the most popular and fastest growing tourist destination for 2022 and it’s not hard to see why.
The Expedia the group notes that the cost of living crisis has worsened Istanbul at the top in fifth place on the list of fastest growing travel destinations since the Turkish lira fell significantly against the pound, making it excellent value for money.
