Sun, sand, sea destinations most popular with Singapore travellers in 2014

Singapore may be surrounded by beaches and has all-year round sunny weather, but when it comes to holiday destinations, travellers still can't get enough of the three S's - sun, sand and sea.

In Yahoo's 2014 Year in Review (YIR), its users in Singapore kept Maldives, Boracay and Langkawi high on its list of most searched destinations.

Thailand - a popular vacation spot for Singaporeans - saw its famed beaches Krabi and Phuket appearing in the list at fifth and eighth spot respectively.

Phuket also had its share of celebrity visitors in 2014 when US reality stars The Kardashians filmed a few episodes of their show in and around the island.

Next-door neighbour Malaysia also bagged three spots on the list. Penang, a city known for good food and culture, edged into the ranking by taking the 10th spot, while Langkawi was named third most-searched destination.

Genting Highlands - a popular family-friendly entertainment spot - took the fourth place after Langkawi.

Despite Gili Trawangan being named TripAdvisor's most affordable island in South-east Asia, its sister island of Boracay - known for its pristine white beaches - was the only holiday spot in Philippines that appeared in the ranking.

The farthest vacation spot to be ranked in this list is Santorini in Greece.

Known for its breathtaking sunsets and white-washed architecture, the Grecian town is not only a must-visit beach town but also became a top choice for wedding photo-shoots due to social media influencers such as Malaysian blogger Cheesie.

Have a look at which holiday destinations were most searched by Singapore travellers in 2014.
