最近は海外旅行より、国内の温泉旅行やスキー旅行の方が若いカップルに人気です。 why we use 若いカップルに人気です. Noun に adjective, what does it mean ??
can anyone explain this sentence pattern ??

This に is an equivalent of the English preposition 'to' used with certain adjectives, as in:

  • も難しい問題
    a problem that is difficult also to him
  • は健康が重要です。
    To me, health is the important thing.

In English, I think people usually say "popular among young couples" rather than "popular to young couples". But in Japanese, we can safely use に with 人気. You have to memorize "popular among X" translates to "Xに人気".
