Poll: Amsterdam a top destination for Americans

DutchAmsterdam.nl — According to a US-wide poll of 640 travel agents Amsterdam is listed in the top 20 of most-booked international travel destinations for 2012.

It is the first time that Amsterdam has made the top 20. Last year the city was ranked 26th.

After Rome, London, Paris, and Florence and/or Tuscany, Amsterdam is the favorite European destination for Americans.

The yearly survey is held by the Travel Leaders Franchise Group, which includes travel agency locations throughout the United States. 

“We are very encouraged to see the rise in popularity of such a diverse group of international destinations,” says Roger Block, president of Travel Leaders.

“We have come to expect London, Rome and – more recently – European river cruising to be near the top of our survey.  However, it is nice to see Americans’ interests are diversifying and in large enough numbers to ‘bump up’ destinations such as Hong Kong and Beijing in Asia, and Amsterdam and Barcelona in Europe.”

The rise is popularity of European river cruises is also beneficial for Amsterdam, since the city is one of the most important starting points for such cruises.
