According to Global Data, a company expert in the analysis of data information, the five most popular types of tourism on social networking sites are virtual tourism, space tourism, adventure tourism, gastronomic tourism, and wine tourism (wine tasting).
The most popular type of tourism on social media is virtual tourism. Through the use of new technologies and the improvement of virtual reality, or video tours, attractions and travel agents are becoming more creative, offering these virtual tourism alternatives to customers, while destinations continue to deal with the pandemic.
Space tourism is the second most popular type of tourism on the Internet. With companies like X-Space and Virgin Galactic, among others, private spaceflight for non-astronauts is just around the corner. The aeronautic enterprise Space Perspective is expected to begin taking non-astronauts into space by 2024.
After more than a year and a half in which most people spent most of their days inside their own homes, it is no surprise that the third most popular type of tourism is adventure tourism.
From Patagonia in Chile to the depths of the sea in the Caribbean (Rey Diving’s specialty) people are preferring to get out of their daily monotonies, and choosing more adventurous forms of travel or activities when planning their holidays.
One of the attractions when traveling is to expand your palate, and that’s the same online as it is when physically attending. Gastronomic tourism is the fourth most discussed type of tourism that exists, according to GlobalData. Also known as culinary tourism, this type of tourism offers to get acquainted with the culture of the country we are visiting through cuisine, and find unique and memorable culinary experiences.
Finally, the fifth most talked about type of tourism was wine-testing tourism. This type of tourism has been growing strongly in recent years, especially in wine-producing countries of course.
Wine tourism offers a sensory experience that covers different areas. When visiting a wine route we can enjoy the landscapes of its surroundings (which are usually very beautiful and full of vineyards), delight ourselves with the best local cuisine and get to know its culture through its most outstanding monuments and most reputable museums around the vineyards.
