Shanghai has had the biggest increase in popularity and has risen by 243 percent in searches. Eastern Europe destinations are also getting a boost in interest among US travelers. Moscow, the capital of Russia ranks in 7th place with Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine ranking in 7th place.

Destinations such as London, Paris and Rome are perennial favorites among US travellers

These three UK and European cities are still the most searched for international travel destinations, according to Scott Carlson of skyscanner.com. However, Carlson said that there is an "apparent trend for Asian cities when we look at which destinations have seen the biggest increase in searches from 2009 to 2010."

"As US travelers continue to look for new and exciting vacation ideas throughout 2011, I expect Asian destinations will continue to see a rise in popularity and may even usurp some of the more traditional and established destinations," said Carlson of skyscanner.com
