Marriott Bonvoy’s travel trend predictions for 2022 suggest we will see more ‘culture vultures’ travelling this year than ever before, searching for new destinations and experiences to discover and cultures to immerse themselves in. Guests will maximise their time away, whether for business or leisure, taking advantage of being in a destination and making sure they get a snapshot of its culture and cuisine while they are there. 

With this in mind, we’re sharing a list of new openings from the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio in destinations that every culture vulture should have on their travel wishlist for 2022.
