CityNews – ABTA, the UK’s leading travel association, announced results recently concerning the most popular destination for British gap year students.

Many head straight to the Full Moon party

From more than 24,000 students leaving the UK Thailand was the most popular spot for their world travel experience. Behind Thailand came Australia, US, South Africa, Peru.

A representative for ABTA said that in the past students often took a full year sabbatical but with rising tuition fees and more insecurity in the job market students these days were ‘doing’ one month trips rather than the full year.
