The festival season has started here in India. The Ganesh Chaturthi and Durga Puja have just over paving the way for the much awaited Diwali and Chhath puja. If you are planning a holiday trip this time of the year, it might just be the right time to know about the top travelling trends of the year. Exploring new unexplored destinations may be one of the top wishes which you might be having as an adventurous traveler. India of course is so rich in art and culture and being a nation which has an ancient history, it always has plenty to offer to travelers worldwide. And all know that the good effects of travel on health and mind.
Many now favour experimental journeys
Studies suggest that many travelers now prefer to undertake experimental trips. This involves a slow paced trip which would provide plenty of local experience to the trip. So in case you want to indulge in the local experiences you could plan for one too. Thus instead of staying at the high end luxury hotels, you could consider home stay which could provide you with a better flavour of the local life of the place you plan to travel to.
You could avail the services of a personal photographer
The trend of almost everyone taking selfies and uploading them into social media might make you feel burdened. This is why you could now opt for a personal photographer. Many tour operators are now providing the travelers with a personal snapper who would also have internet hotspots. They would document your trip and deliver a daily dose of Insta-appropriate images. This is an innovative idea which seems to be working well for most tour operators.

Wellness is a top priority for the hospitality industry
Wellness for most globetrotters is a top priority. This is why most resorts, hotels, holiday homes and even airlines are putting a major portion of their itinerary on the same. The services offered include everything from de-stressing, detoxing and other health-related activities. So in case you are a fitness freak, taking care of your health would not be a problem even when you are on tour. 
Travel Apps continue to dominate the travel sector
Whether be it flight booking or booking a package, travels apps have dominated the travelling industry. This offers great convenience to you as a traveler. The other benefit it offers is that with so much competition now in the sector you could easily land up with a really lucrative deal, which might not have been possible otherwise.
Travelling with strangers
It might sound scary, but travelling is about meeting new people. Many now prefer to take solo trips to travel to unexplored places with a group of strangers. So many travelers are now seen to travel to lesser known places which are smaller towns and villages. In fact travelling to these locations had emerged as a big trend. Perhaps one primary reason for this is that you can travel at a low budget.
