London.– British Airways has compiled its top 13 destinations to visit in 2013 as a result of poll on the airline's Facebook page. Over 2,660 users nominated the overseas destinations they most want to visit next year and the Dominican Republic made the list.
New York topped the list (22 per cent), followed by Australia (eight per cent), Hong Kong (seven per cent), Rio de Janeiro (five per cent) and Dubai (three per cent).
Holidays in Dominican Republic are emerging as a must do, especially in Punta Cana on the south coast. Ash van Wensveen, British Airways' destination manager, said: "People are really waking up to Punta Cana. There's a real buzz from holidaymakers creating word of mouth on its affordability, fabulous hotels and beaches that dip into the Caribbean Sea."
