I have not been to Saipan before, but for whatever reason it is a location that many Koreans I know either have visited or want to visit. It appears that the Asiana flight crews agree with them:
Flight attendants are the latest to weigh in on the debate about the world’s best travel destinations. Asiana Airlines asked 1,825 of its cabin crew members for their preferences for different travel purposes.
As for family-oriented vacations with children, Saipan came out on top with 46 percent. Respondents cited the natural environment, recreational facilities and relatively short flying time from Seoul, according to survey results released on Thursday.
Cebu, one of the most popular destinations in the Philippines, and Phuket in Thailand came next with 13 and 11 percent, respectively.
Bangkok was chosen as the best destination for elderly parents with 33 percent, due to its diverse cuisine, exotic tourist sites and massage spas.
Japan’s Fukuoka, well known for its hot springs, and Okinawa, dubbed the “Hawaii of the East,” came in second and third with 13 and 8 percent, respectively. [Chosun Ilbo]
