One of the key Russian trends in 2021. continues to be reorientation on trips inside the country. And what other trends are observed in the tourist industry of Russia and abroad against the pandemic background?

Trend number 1: rest without distant trips, near the house

Perhaps the main global trend was t.N. «Stakeyishn». English Theater Staycation formed by the words of Stay + Vacation, the combination of which can be roughly translated as «Vacation near the house». This trend is especially popular in European countries, residents of which cannot freely go to the overseas tour.

And for the same Milanians – Bicycle walks are organized around the surroundings of the metropolis with a visit to historical places in which Lombardy is replete.

«Stakeyishn» enjoys great popularity, and many people re-discover their native region, which used to seem ordinary and uninteresting. In more or less large countries «Vacation near the house» May be poured into independent car trips to neighboring regions. As a rule, the duration of such tours does not exceed the week, but this is enough to distract from work and feel on vacation.

Trend number 2: Combining work and recreation in an unusual place

People who choose such a style of knowledge of the world, got the name of digital nomads. They leave for their country and for a long period settle in another state, usually – spa. Here «Travel workers» continue to work remotely in their specialty, combining life in an exotic place with work.

Popular in digital nomads Points are the Indian state of Goa, Sri Lanka, Bali, Vietnam and other Warm countries of Southeast Asia. Such a kind of tourism is very different from traditional trips. It allows not just to quickly see the sights, but also to plunge into a local daily life.

Trend number 3: booking tours at the last moment

In the docking era, only a narrow layer of tourists seeking to save. It is no secret that burning trips are sometimes sold with large discounts, and there are many instructions for their search. However, in 2020-21. Urgent booking of tours turned from Lifehak to a massive practice. At the very beginning of the pandemic, tourists around the world purchased bitter, but useful experience.

However, against the background of Thailand or the Caribbean countries, where the fall was 90%, this can be considered a positive indicator.

Despite the pandemic, Sochi and Crimean beaches in the seasons 2020-2021. clogged under the string

Some regions of the Russian Federation in 2020. Even increased their tourist indicators compared with 2019. For example, the summer tour flow into the Kaliningrad region in 2020. rose 2.3 times, in Karelia – 2 times, and in Dagestan – 40%.
