Manila secures crown for most popular Easter destination among Filipinos

Tokyo steals the top spot for most popular Easter travel destinations among Asia-Pacific travelers in 2018, a title held by Manila last year, according to global online booking platform agoda.

Tokyo has increased in popularity in recent years, having moved up from 7th place in 2016 to 1st place this year. Easter typically falls within Japan’s renown Sakura (cherry blossom) season, which runs from late March to mid-April. Coupled with Easter-themed celebrations in some of Tokyo’s most popular amusement parks, Easter egg hunts and other pop-up events, the city has a lot of seasonal attractions to offer visitors traveling Easter weekend.

Manila, which takes third place this year, is consistently popular with Asia-Pacific travelers, remaining in the top three spots year on year. With the largest Christian population in Asia-Pacificthe Philippines observes public holidays the Thursday and Friday before Easter Sunday. There is no shortage of religious and seasonal events, from street festivals to special Church services, making Manila a top destination for travelers celebrating Easter.

Other destinations such as Singapore and Kuala Lumpur have dipped in popularity, dropping from 1st and 4th place in 2016 to 5th and 8th place in 2018, respectively. Bali, which dipped to 6th place last year, has reclaimed its top five spot this year at 4th place.
