Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

Colom­bia is see­ing a surge in in­ter­est as a travel des­ti­na­tion for 2017, with the coun­try set to climb out from the shadow of its neigh­bours Brazil and Peru.

A price com­par­i­son site has shown the coun­try’s in­creas­ing pop­u­lar­ity. On their list of trend­ing des­ti­na­tions for 2017, two Colom­bian cities, Carta­gena and Medelli cracked the top 10 list. While Carta­gena, sixth on the list, saw a 31 per­cent spike in flight ac­tiv­ity and topped the list of wal­let-friendly flights, Medellin Rose 28 per­cent. Last year, Carta­gena was spot­lighted as one of the best 21 des­ti­na­tions to visit in 2017. Snow­birds have set sights on Asia, as half of top 10 lo­ca­tions are new­com­ers from Phuket, Bali, Colombo Mal­dives and Ok­i­nawa.
