Lisbon named as the top 2019 bucket list destination for millennials
Think you'd have to fly half way across the world to have a once-in-a-lifetime holiday?
We millennials love to travel and are always adding new places to our must-visit lists.
The number one bucket list destination for millennials this year is somewhere not too far from Ireland.
Lisbon is officially the most-desired place in the world for younger travellers in 2019.
With its beautiful streets, stunning coastal views, great food and affordable prices, Portugal's capital came out top in research by travel company muv Travel.
It found that millennial travellers want "memorable and original moments," as well as "activities that focus on sustainable and personalised local experiences".
It's pretty handy to get to from Ireland too - depending on who you fly with and when you go, you could get return flights for as little as €100.
Second to Lisbon was Ubud in Bali, followed by Cinque Terre in Italy.
Fourth on the bucket list was Utah while Luberon in France took the fifth spot.
Other destinations in the top ten were Italy's Puglia, Riga in Latvia, Bagan in Myanmar, Carmel-by-the-Sea in California and Seville in Spain.
A lot of these locations are pretty left of field, suggesting that millennials want to visit lesser-known places around the world.
