Travel trend agency Purpose Lab and ANVR teamed up and investigated our travel needs for 2025. For Millennials – born after 1980 – travel is an increasingly important part of life. The prediction is that in 2025 travelers want to find exclusive and enriching travel experiences that shape us and give meaning. We want to blend in with the locals even more than before. “We also want to give something back in 2025 to gather the community and karma points while we travel. Work and private life flow more and more into each other and the motto “work hard, play hard” is replaced by “work less, play more.”
With this in mind, they’ve created a top 5 on how Millennials have their travel needs fulfilled.
Travel needs for 2025?
“We will talk about a bucketlist 2.0 in 2025”
Connect with the local life is the key to authentic travel needs for 2025. Experience a destination not in a passive way, but fully interact experienced and gain inspiration and world knowledge though locals. We rely on local expertise and thanks to the growing number of online peer-to-peer platforms, social media and apps we find that we are easily connected to different kinds of cultures and habits on the other side of the world. We eat with bizarre local dishes as Hot Vit Lon (egg with chicken embryo inside) in Vietnam, we are learning to dance salsa in the Colombian salsa city of Cali, we sleep in a hammock between the Costa Ricans under the guise of ‘ Pura Vida ‘ and we are in Nepal along with the monks before dawn to meditate and make sacrifices. Living la vida local!
