Airbnb is wrapping up 2023 by revealing its annual holiday season trends, trending domestic and international destinations, as well as the Airbnb Categories that are popular among Filipinos.

Domestically, Filipinos are gravitating towards the country’s pristine waters, with the laidback city of Sorsogon City in Bicol as the leading trending destination for the holiday season. Following closely are beach destination San Felipe in Zambales and urban retreat Las Piñas City in Metro Manila. Hotspots Puerto Princesa in Palawan and Boracay in Aklan remain popular among locals.

Filipinos are also looking to cross borders this holiday season, with a particular fascination for various cities in the Land of the Rising Sun. Taito has claimed the top spot as the most searched international destination, celebrated for its multifaceted charm. Hong Kong follows closely behind, with more Japanese cities such as Shinjuku and Osaka completing the list of sought-after destinations.

Tropical Stays are the top of Pinoy travelers’ itineraries, making it the most booked category of the season. Iconic Cities take the second spot, while outdoor enthusiasts drive the popularity of Amazing Pools, National Parks, and Golfing categories, reflecting a growing trend among Filipino travelers seeking unique outdoor experiences.

With the holiday season fast approaching, Filipinos can take advantage of new major upgrades including Guest Favorites, Revamped ratings and reviews, and the Listings tab. Here are some Airbnbs in both domestic and international trending destinations to get those planning started!
