The holidays are right around the corner and now is the perfect time to start planning your end- of -the-year getaways. And if you are a millennial, this is the ideal time to learn about the best places to visit during the holidays. Holidu, a European-based travel search engine, released its 2022 Best Cities For Millennial travelers index. The research shows cities worldwide that best suit millennials’ travel destinations.

The index found that 71% of millennials use Instagram at least once a week and base their trips around the city’s food scene.

Holidu’s study ranked cities that are considered the most “Instagrammable”, have the most national dishes ranked in the top 100 and are the most family-friendly.

In fact, according to the US tourism industry, Millennials travel more than other generations. Expedia says that US Millennials travel 35 days per year, compared to 26 days for Generation X; 27 days for Baby Boomers; and 29 days for Generation Z.

The average budget of Millennials is slightly below the annual travel spend of Generation X or Baby Boomers.

Here are the top 5 best cities in the world for millennial travelers, according to Holidu:

1. Paris, France
