Cape Verde, number one destination for 2007

Cape Verde is this year's number one destination according to Expedia, beating other popular destinations such as Paris, New York and even Morocco, Vietnam, Bulgaria and Cape Town.

Expedia, one of the largest internet-based holiday companies, has declared that Cape Verde will be the number one holiday destination in 2007. Cape Verde proved to be Expedia's customers' top choice thanks to its beautiful landscape, superb white sandy beaches, year-round sunshine and Creole style culture.

Expedia’s Marketing Director comments:

“This year’s list reveals that more and more people are exploring niche destinations and becoming more adventurous with their holiday choices. Our customers prefer to head off the beaten track rather than continue to go back to traditional tourist hot spots. We hope this list will give travellers holiday inspiration to let themselves go and experience new places and cultures in 2007.”

Expedia's Top 10 Destinations for 2007:

  1. Cape Verde
  2. Bulgaria
  3. Brazil
  4. Vietnam
  5. Croatia
  6. Cape Town
  7. Devon
  8. Beijing
  9. Las Vegas

While I love Cape Verde, your post is EXTREMELY misleading to say the least. You should have qualified it by saying that among users of Expedia in the UK, that CV was the most popular destination. It would have been helpful to post the link to the article from which you quoted.

Instead, you made it sound as if CV was the number one destination of vacationer using EXPEDIA across the globe. To put it in perspective, CV in 2007 had less than 200,000 annual vacationers. There are several islands in the Caribbean which receive millions of tourists annually.
