Agoda.com, part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group, announced the results of its most recent Travel Smarts study which shows where outbound Asian travelers are spending their Chinese New Year.

The study looked at data from thousands of customers who booked hotel stays during Chinese New Year week through Agoda.com. Overall, Asians are staying in Asia and travelers from China prefer Thailand for this annual holiday. For Chinese travelers, destinations in the Southeast Asian country took the top three spots, with Hong Kong and Taipei following just after.

?Thailand?s continuous growth as the preferred destination for Chinese travelers is a testament to the country?s excellent tourism product complemented with value for money accommodations and increased flight accessibility. Chiang Mai for example, which rose in popularity since the movie ?Lost in Thailand,? is now just a short flight away from several Chinese cities,? said Errol Cooke, vice president for global hotels.

Across the board, Asian travelers who are not staying in their home countries are heading to other destinations within Asia to welcome the year of the Sheep.
