The travel website recently released its list of the top 5 destinations to travel for 2015.

These are places around the world where you are likely to see impressive deals based current trends and travel industry projections. Here’s the list (in alphabetical order) and a few reasons why its a hot destination for 2015:

Asia: New ships and itineraries mean more deals on Asia cruises.  You can take in several countries in one trip or do a deep dive into areas like Thailand’s Phang Nga Bay. The deals will range from large ocean liners to small, luxury ships and more.

Brazil: Last year was the FIFA World Cup. In 2016, it’s the Summer Olympics. That makes 2015 the perfect time to visit this country and take advantage of the savings. Plans to open 400 new hotels by 2016 means there will be lots of price competition for lodging.
