Get your 2018 travel plans underway with the most desired Airbnbs in every country

With 2017 almost at an end, many avid travellers may be running low on funds or vacation days, but that’s no reason to stop dreaming of the perfect holiday for 2018. Thankfully, Airbnb has released the most “wish-listed” homes in every country around the world to spark even the most aspirational travel plans.

The home rental site allows users to save properties they’d love to stay in onto a wish list, so they can revisit them in the future and hopefully book a stay.

By crunching their data from around the world, the company has determined exactly where travellers wish they could spend the night, and it seems many people are dreaming of castles, treehouses, and yurts for their ideal holiday. In Britain, the most wish-listed property is an amazing castle in Cumbria, where guests can indulge all their royal fantasies and hang out in a turret. In Indonesia, it’s no surprise that an amazing treehouse in Bali has captured the imagination of would-be travellers.

While yurts are traditionally found in Central Asia, they have become a desirable accommodation type around the world and that’s certainly the case in Germany, where an original yurt from Afghanistan has been turned into a unique place to spend the night.

The unique accommodation choices that have made the wish-lists are unsurprising, as Airbnb recently released data showing that unusual accommodation options like nature lodges and ryokan are seeing a surge of interest on the site.
