Although millennials know what they want they also rely on some guidance, and in doing so travel-planning site müvTravel has made it so much easier for them to plan their next holiday. They have recently released a list of the Top 30 Millennial Travel Destinations for 2019, and Franschhoek is the only listed South African destination. Listed at number 27, Franschhoek shares the spotlight with the likes of Seville (Spain), Utah (USA) and Chiang Mai (Thailand).

The list was compiled by analysing the destinations which are most frequently added to their millennial users bucket lists. The data showed millennial travellers seek “memorable and original moments,” as well as “activities that focus on sustainable and personalised local experiences”.

Not only is Franschhoek regarded as South Africa’s Culinary Capital as well as one of the country’s premier wine producing regions, but research has shown that it is also one of the preferred travel destinations amongst local and international tourists. The list compiled by müvTravel reaffirms this yet again.
