Travel has been off the cards since 2020, but as the world opens up, so do our horizons.
A whopping 72 per cent of Aussies say they are likely to travel for leisure in 2022, according to a survey by the world’s largest travel guidance platform, Tripadvisor.
To help you narrow down your travel choices, they've released their 'Travellers’ Choice Awards for 2022: the Best of the Best Destinations'.
Voted for by visitors, it's the ultimate guide to help you identify where to go and what to do while you're there. These are the winners:
Winner: Majorca, Balearic Islands
Looking for a holiday that's seriously Insta-worthy?
This is it.
Majorca is an island off the south-east coast of Spain and has had a few incarnations over the years.
From an island full of sleepy fishing villages, to party central, now it's found a market with high-end villas, stunning beaches and tiny coves and gorgeous cliff-top restaurants.
To add to your Insta-travel shots, head to the Greek island of Rhodes, Cairo in Egypt, Dubrovnik in Croatia, and Tulum in Mexico, which also made the top-five list.
Winner: Cancun, Mexico
Cancun topped the charts due to its family-friendly resorts, as much as it's party-town reputation.
As well as the amazing climate, people recommend visiting Mayan ruins, such as El Rey and the Yamil Lu’um.
Bali, Crete and Cabo San Lucas, also in Mexico made the top five.
Love waterfalls, hot springs, wildlife and volcanoes?
Head to Costa Rica for a holiday where you can hike, go rafting or hit the beach.
Expect plumes of smoke from the nearby volcano, as well as dense forests and old lava fields.
There are great restaurants and hotels nearby so you don't have to slum it if you don't want to.
Winner: Dubai, UAE
No longer just a place to stopover, Dubai is now a holiday destination in its own right.
It's great at flashy extremes; modern buildings, golden sands, luxury shopping and world-class dining - against a backdrop of old-fashioned souks and waterways.
If you want to escape the city, you can easily visit the desert too.
London, Rome, Istanbul and Paris also made the top five list.
Winner: Rome, Italy
Not much beats sitting in a cafe or restaurant on one of Rome's tiny backstreets, eating freshly cooked pasta.
If you're a foodie, you're spoilt for choice here, but don't leave without trying the city's most iconic dish, cacio e pepe: spaghetti tossed through with salty, aged sheep’s milk cheese and black pepper.
London, Paris, Dubai and Barcelona also come highly rated.
Winner: Zermatt, Switzerland
The Matterhorn is omni-present everywhere you go in Zermatt, which makes it a skiiers paradise.
It's a pretty village, with winding alleyways and plenty to see - but the best bit is that skiing often lasts all the way through to early European summer, giving Aussies a long window of time to make the trip.
Too late for snow?
There's great hiking too.
