Bucket list destinations

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.
