Top 10 Easter Destinations
1) New York
Popular with independent travelers, momondo frequently sees Bangkok and New York appear high up in its Top 10 ‘most-searched' destination lists.
However, the surprise for the site this year was Istanbul -entering the list fourth most popular. This indicates Istanbul is getting more and more popular with Brits. The city is a perfect blend of culture and glitz - boasting historical wonders such as the Topkapi palace, and the impossibly cool, open-air nightclub sitting on the banks of the Bosphorus - Reina.
Istanbul will host the "The Sultans of Calligraphy" exhibition - a selection of exquisite Islamic calligraphy this April, and also be home to a new Tulip Museum and Research Center, later in the year. Return flights from London to Istanbul this May 2013, currently start from £130 searching on momondo.co.uk.
