Holidu, a Germany-based travel search engine, has published its 2022 Generation Travel Index. The brand analyzed cities around the world based on factors that matter to the Baby Boomers: people born between 1946 and 1964.
Research has shown that baby boomers spend more money on food when traveling than any other generation and value exploring the great outdoors more than anything else.
Holidu’s Index measures key factors for baby boomers, including various Michelin Guide landscapes, green spaces and restaurants.

Singapore’s capital has been ranked as the best city for baby boomers thanks to its abundance of green spaces.
According to Holidu, 46.5% of the city’s land was covered with green space in 2020, making it one of the greenest cities in the world.
There are also 249 Michelin restaurants in Singapore, of which 52 have at least one star and three at least three stars.
