Skyscanner has released its predictions for the top ten destination hot spots to watch in 2015. A mix of countries and cities, they range from mainstream, well-known destinations such as Mykonos and Australia’s Gold Coast to the more intrepid destinations of Siem Reap and Nicaragua.

The predictions are based on the analysis of millions of the company's flight searches from the last three years, combined with qualitative research carried out by futurology companies, The Future Laboratory and Trendhunter providing additional insight on consumer trends and influences.
Siem Reap in the Northwest of Cambodia tops the list with a 33% increase in searches from the UK, followed closely by Fort Lauderdale, Florida (32%) and Mykonos, Greece (31%). In forth place is Brazil, followed by Australia's Gold coast, Nicaragua, Seoul, Colombo, Taipei and Panama.

Commenting on the findings, the company's Mary Porter said: “While Spain, the US and France continue to be the most popular holiday destinations for Brits year after year, and we don’t anticipate this changing any time soon, we know that many of our customers like to be ahead of the trend with their holiday choices and are looking to be inspired by new destinations they may never have considered before. This insight, along with our series of travel guides, will allow them to get the most out of their next trip.”
