Kuonio's list does not surprise many people because these destinations are known for their attractive beauty.

Maldives still holds the top position. Following are Mauritius, Thailand and Sri Lanka, ranked in second, third and fourth place respectively.

Bali returns to the list at fifth place. The island has always been a popular honeymoon destination, but a series of earthquakes on Bali’s Lombok Island in August 2018 has reduced the flow of visitors. 460 people died and thousands of buildings were damaged, causing serious damage to the tourism industry of Indonesia.

Italy is the only European country listed in the Top 10, at the 6th position. Other countries such as Greece and Spain are in the Top 20.

According to Kuonio research, the demand for small group tours supported by professional guides has increased by 10%, which has led to the rise of Vietnam. The Southeast Asian nation beats India to be listed in the Top 10, ranking at eighth position. Destinations such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city have gradually become popular in compound tours./.
