Japan has emerged the most popular vacation destination in 2015 for travelers in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and mainland China in a poll of travel habits in Asia-Pacific.
In a survey by Travelzoo, which publishes travel deals around the world, 56% of Taiwanese respondents said they plan to visit Japan in 2015.
Nearly half of travelers from Hong Kong also said they have their travel sights booked on Japan, as did 40% of respondents from mainland China.
For the survey, 4,300 Travelzoo members in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan were polled in November last year.
Australians, it seems, will explore their own country this year with 50 percent of respondents naming Oz as their top vacation destination.
And the US ranked the top destination in 2015 for Japanese travelers.
The survey also revealed that the Chinese will travel the most, taking an average of 6.4 leisure trips in 2015 and spending an average of $8,558.
And while Australian members will travel the least, taking 3.8 trips this year, they will spend the most, dishing out $10,483 on travel this year.
