While summer brings a lot of fun, fall is our favorite season. And it’s not just propaganda or anecdote rooted in American culture and tradition. According to a survey published in 2020, the percentage of participants who identified fall as their favorite season was 30% more than those who chose any of the remaining three seasons. This is a normal result. If fall is Americans’ favorite season, where would they go to catch a glimpse of nature’s best colors?
Americans have many options. However, the Turks and Caicos Islands registered a flash on the travel radar. It turns out that Americans have taken a great interest in these groups of Caribbean islands and can’t seem to get enough of their unimaginable beauty.
Turks and Caicos is the fastest growing destination on TripAdvisor
According to data analyzed by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel guidance platform, the Turks and Caicos Islands is the world’s fastest growing travel destination.
That’s according to data taken from an online survey of more than 2,700 consumers. TripAdvisor conducted the survey in partnership with QualtrixIt is a customer experience management platform that provides tools for conducting web-based surveys and generating relevant reports.
TripAdvisor conducted a survey of travel consumers from Japan, Italy, Singapore, the United Kingdom, Australia - and of course, the United States.
There are other destinations that TripAdvisor has described as the fastest growing.
Coming on the heels of the Turks and Caicos, Ho Chi Minh City is a gorgeous South Vietnamese city, formerly known as Saigon, which is also its economic hub.
Ho Chi Minh has always been among the top travel destinations in Vietnam, and its great location might not come as much of a surprise.
Singapore, London (surprisingly) and Bangkok are close to the top five in that order. The survey results relate to searches conducted on the TripAdvisor travel platform between September 1, 2023 - and November 30, 2022.
Singapore, famous for its amazing food scene mostly from famous hawker centers (and of course, its unimaginable safety), and Bangkok, which is insanely tolerant of tourist behavior as long as the monarchy remains the same, are travel destinations that have topped the charts for a while.
But the Turks and Caicos Islands appear to be on another level.
Why the Turks and Caicos Islands should top your fall vacation list
It’s not just about the beautiful fall colors, the sheer number of fun-filled activities on offer, or even the warm, sunny weather that travelers roam the planet for.
Turks & Caicos offers the best beaches in the world - indisputably - but sure.
Take Grace Bay Beach, for example. This beach is just the stuff that dreams are made of. If it comes to sand, Grace Bay Beach has sand that has a fine fine texture and is so white that it looks very ethereal.
In 2022, it was ranked #1 in TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards for Best Beach on the Planet, a rank that has been repeated on many other travel platforms.
The beauty with Turks & Caicos is that it’s not just one beach; Or two or three.
Instead, every major island is gracefully surrounded by miles of secluded sandy beaches - the kind that will leave visitors in complete awe and admiration.
Then there is another aspect to these beaches that make them a world hot cake. They are almost not crowded.
Even Grace Bay, the finest in the world, whose fame will lead many to its sandy beaches, seldom sees crowds of the kind seen in, say, Myrtle Beach or any popular American beach.
To add to the excitement of the beach experience, the ocean waters that overlap the shoreline are so clear that they are almost transparent.
Other things to love about Turks and Caicos Islands
The beaches of Turks and Caicos are the staple of the country’s travel fame. And as we’ve seen, it’s all worth it.
However, other travel-related factors have continued to influence the country’s popularity as a travel hot spot. One of these is language.
Since English is the official language of these Caribbean islands, tourists from the United States and Britain - soon feel at ease. It is also worth noting that the US dollar is the accepted currency in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
This means that there will be no frustrations revolving around currency exchange - as often happens in many other destinations - as well as currency exchange scams. but that is not all.
There are many direct flights from the US that make travel deliberately convenient. Finally, there is more to the Turks and Caicos Islands than its heavenly beaches.
Across the country, nature stands out with regal splendor. For these reasons, travelers around the world are increasingly wanting to experience this slice of paradise.
