The quiet luxury trend has been all over the fashion scene, but what does it mean for travelers?
In terms of fashion, those who have been following the quiet luxury trend are shifting away from clothes and accessories with flashy logos that boast their high-end brands. But how does that translate to the world of travel?
Instead of opulence, grandeur, and overt displays of wealth, quiet luxury travelers would probably prefer under-the-radar destinations. Prioritizing peaceful environments where they can simply relax and unwind, secluded retreats with a high level of service are a must.
If you’re ready to dip your toes into quiet luxury traveling, here are some destinations that embody the serene philosophy.
