Spanish holiday destination is 'top city break'
The popular Spanish holiday region of Barcelona has been named as one of the top ten city break destinations in the world.

According to Post Office, demand for such Spanish holiday city breaks could "explode" in 2008 as people cut back on expenditure on longer holidays and opt instead for two or three-night short breaks.

Post Office head of travel Helen Warburton noted that a similar pattern happened in October 1987 after Black Monday when Britons took flights to Spain for city breaks.

"It was much cheaper to go on two or more breaks during the year than to take a two-week holiday.
