Humans are incredibly diverse and have vastly different personalities. Because of this, everyone perceives food, activities, and even places differently. While people with different personalities may share the same love for exploring the world, there will undoubtedly be differences in where they want to go and how they want to travel.
Some travellers might prefer quick, adventure-packed escapades, others might prefer long, drawn-out experiences. Which do you prefer? Find out as we take a closer look at different traveller personality types and outline where to travel in 2020 based on your personality!
The Methodical Traveller is steady, consistent, and organised. They thoroughly enjoy planning trips and itineraries down to the very last detail — and they’re good at it! They’ve probably booked their flight, accommodations, and guided tours months before the trip. Beware though, the Methodical Traveller doesn’t like it when things don’t go according to plan! Despite that, travelling with the Methodical Traveller also means you get the most of your destination!
The Methodical Traveller likes to go to tried-and-true destinations where they know what to expect. A good example for this would be Beijing, China’s sprawling capital! A wonderful marriage of modern and ancient architecture, Beijing is brimming with awe-inspiring architectural wonders like the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, and the CCTV Headquarters. The Methodical Traveller will have field day hopping from one attraction to the next, ticking off all the must-see places on their list!
Where to Stay
Fraser Suites CBD, Beijing is located just minutes away from the Forbidden City, shopping malls, and restaurants, making it an excellent choice for the Methodical Traveller. On top of that, the property boasts world-class amenities to suit every kind of need.
For the Social Traveller, travelling isn’t so much about exploring new places as it is about meeting new people. They find that the real beauty of travel lies in the memories you make with the people you’re with. If you’re a Social Traveller, you like to look back fondly on your trips and remember the people you met along the way, all of whom made you fall in love with the places you’ve been to. More often than not, the Social Traveller just likes to go with the flow and see where life takes them!
The Social Traveller is happiest where there’s a thriving social scene. Bangkok is a great destination for Social Travellers to meet like-minded individuals! This vibrant city is brimming with shrines to see, places to eat, and bars to drink! Spend the day visiting temples like Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Pho, and spend the night bar-hopping along Khaosan Road!
Where to Stay
Modena by Fraser Bangkok is conveniently located in front of one of Bangkok’s major train stations, Queen Sirikit MRT Station. This makes it easy for guests to travel to different parts of the city from the property. It also has an in-house bar, perfect for a nightcap to meet new friends.
The Inquisitive Traveller likes to travel more slowly, meaningfully, and inquisitively. They don’t just travel for pleasure but also view travelling as a source of education. They travel with the goal of experiencing the culture, appreciating local art, and understanding the locals’ way of life. If you’re an Inquisitive Traveller, you like to take things slow and plan your trip purposefully. The Inquisitive Traveller is also often a history buff or someone with a deep appreciation for architecture.
For travellers like these, an excellent destination would be Barcelona — the cosmopolitan capital of Spain! Take your time marvelling at Gaudi’s architectural masterpieces like La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, and Casa Mila (La Pedrera). Don’t miss out on traditional Catalan cuisine and try dishes like escudella (meat and vegetable stew) and esqueixada (salt cod salad)!
Where to Stay
For the Inquisitive Traveller, we recommend staying at Capri by Fraser, Barcelona/Spain. The property is conveniently located in Barcelona’s business district and boasts arts installations around the property for that distinct local feel. You can also try whipping out local dishes in your kitchenette!
If you’re the Adventurous Traveller, then you’re bold, feisty, and independent! Adventurous types are risk-takers looking to broaden their horizons with each trip they take! Their goals with travelling are to gain a new perspective, look for opportunities to learn, and be spontaneous! Quite the opposite of the Traditional Traveller, the Adventurous Traveller is willing to go off-the-beaten-track to satisfy their wanderlust.
Teeming with majestic castles, fabled battlefields, and craggy landscapes, Scotland would be a haven for the Adventurous Traveller. Make your way to the imposing fortress that is Edinburgh Castle or explore the ruins of Urquhart Castle in Inverness. If you’re looking for something a little more exciting, you can challenge yourself with a hike up Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles.
Where to Stay
Malmaison Edinburgh is located in Leith and is the perfect boutique hotel for the Adventurous Traveller. The property is surrounded by shops, stylish bars, and cutting-edge restaurants. Better yet, it’s only a few minutes away from popular attractions like Edinburgh Castle and local secret Dr Neil’s Garden.
The Family-Oriented Traveller is anyone who loves to travel with their family. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re a parent! This type of traveller can be anyone who prefers to travel with their family than with friends or on their own. The Family-Oriented Traveller is always on the lookout for travel destinations that are safe and child-friendly. Generally, the Family-Oriented Traveller is quite flexible with travel plans and doesn’t mind deviating from the itinerary as long the whole family is having fun.
Sydney is one of the safest, most family-friendly cities in the world! On top of that, it’s also brimming with exciting things to do. Whether you prefer to relax by the beach or embark on a tasty food trip, Sydney’s got your back. Families with kids should head straight to Sydney’s most beloved amusement park, Luna Park, see adorable animals native to Australia at Taronga Zoo or take on a scenic sunset walk!
Where to Stay
Luxury serviced apartments are the go-to choice for travelling families! With amenities like kitchenettes, entertainment systems, and full furnishings, Fraser Suites Sydney is best suited for the Family-Oriented Traveller. It’s got everything each family member would benefit from a serviced apartment!
Regardless of your personality type, you’re bound to find somewhere to travel in 2020 that will suit your fancy! Just remember to book your accommodations with Frasers Hospitality to ensure a relaxing, world-class experience wherever you go.
