Where Are Travelers Heading In 2007?

Not Aruba!

(source)--Curious where travelers are headed in the coming year? We took a look at the most popular searches on Yahoo! FareChase to see which cities folks are flocking to in 2007. On the domestic list, perennial travel favorite Las Vegas shows no signs of ceding the top spot, while sunny Florida dominates the rest of the list, with five out of the top 10 searches.

We did note a few surprises on the international list, including the appearance of Frankfurt and Manila in the top 5. Visitors rave about Frankfurt's shopping and architecture, while Manila attracts budget travelers looking for beaches and nightlife. Of course, more traditional travel destinations like Paris and Rome made the list as well, placing at 7th and 8th respectively.

Top Domestic Travel Searches - 2007

  1. Las Vegas, Nevada
  2. Orlando, Florida
  3. New York City, New York
  4. Honolulu, Hawaii
  5. Miami, Florida
  6. Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
  7. Los Angeles, California
  8. Tampa, Florida
  9. Phoenix, Arizona
  10. Ft. Myers, Florida

Top International Travel Searches - 2007

  1. London, United Kingdom
  2. Cancun, Mexico
  3. Frankfurt, Germany
  4. San Juan, Puerto Rico
  5. Manila, Phillipines
  6. Bangkok, Thailand
  7. Paris, France
  8. Rome, Italy
  9. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
  10. Amsterdam, Netherlands

I am thrilled to see that Aruba is NOT on this list. The boycott is working! Tourism Prime Minister Edison Briesen is in HOT water with Oduber and certain dutch politicans. The Dutch are the ones that rule the roost.

Amsterdam just about falling off to the bottom, the ArubanBoycott works extremely well. Many good American families are so afraid of that their beautiful daughter could become the next gangrape victim by 2KJ in Aruba or Amsterdam. The American parents are blaming Deepak for saying their daughter is slut. Their daughter is a striaght A honor high school graduate, and she wants a set of two beautiful bikini swim fashions for her graduation gift, she just wants to her youthful energy and positiveness to all her friends. The girl stands on her brother's Silverado pickup, and their guests water her beautiful body and bikini outfit to baptise her with good cheers. The girl is a sweet 17, an all Ameican favorite. The whole family plan to drive their RV to Las Vegas, Nevada for their dream paradise vacation.

This messy 2kDrP lawsuit puts Aruba into extinction. Dammed if Aruba do it, Fuoked if they don't. The bad world publicity is wiping out Aruba and Amsterdam off the globe. People thought those two places are associated, bad, ugly and cursed. They don't want to go them no law places to get robbed and killed. America is beautiful, London is Prince William, Paris is Hilton, Rome is romantic. Holland is a dirty handle sink hole. To save its tourism, Aruba has to wake up and face the Reality. To depose the 2KJ and put them behind bars. To eliminate their threats and dangers to the beach customers. Then the American tourists will slowly come back to visit the island.

I don't think their tourism will slowly return to what they were used too ever again. The damage is done by their own hands. And from what I've read over the last couple years their crime is getting worse on their island.

Drugs, raping, robbings, murders, cover-ups and corruption does not make a good vacation destination.

I actually would be surprised to EVER see them in a top ten list of vacation spots. Cocnsidering that in their best year they have had about 1 million guests, that is peanuts compared to most touristic sites here in the old US of A alone. Let alone places like Paris, Rome, Madrid, tokyo, singapore, Sydney. Melbourne, etc, etc, etc. These places book millions of guests each year, so I don't think Aruba will break the top ten in these type of searches. Michelle, just in case, have you found out if they were ever in any of their top ten searches, as per vacation destination.
