Japanese cities are the top destinations for Asia-Pacific travelers next year, Hotels.com told CNBC.
Tokyo was ranked the number one vacation spot, followed by Osaka in second place, eclipsing previous favorite Hong Kong, according to data compiled from the accommodation booking site. The cultural capital of Kyoto came in at tenth on the list.
The Travelers' Choice Destinations on the Rise survey from Trip Advisor this month also featured a Japanese city: Naha in the southern Okinawa province, ranked fourth in Asia and sixth worldwide.
As Asia-Pacific travelers continue to spearhead the boom in international travel, the industry can't afford to ignore their preferred destinations. The number of outbound trips from Asia rose 8 percent during the first eight months of the year, double the global average, IPK International said in its annual travel report released this month.
"As far as destinations were concerned, the majority of Asians (75 percent) prefer to holiday on their own continent," IPK said.
