Top 10 Travel Destinations In The World
Popular travel destination based site TripAdvisor recently released its annual travelers awards choice which basically sees its users weighing in on millions of hotels and restaurants in the world as well as attraction ratings and reviews in a duration of 12 months.
The winner for this year’s annual travelers choice award was New York City which claimed the first spot as the best place to visit in the U.S. while Marrakesh was awarded the honor of top-rated destination in the entire world thanks to its attractions which are almost 1,000 year old.
This year’s list has seen a number of changes with the old Medieval charm of Marrakesh enabling it to move an impressive five spots up the list from its initial last year’s position. Also moving on the list was last year’s runner-up Siem Reap, which moved seven spots up.
Siem Reap in Cambodia came in a t number two worldwide.
“Winners change from year to year based on feedback from the community of millions,” said Julie Cassetina, a spokeswoman of TripAdvisor. “These fantastic destinations offer a myriad of places to discover— from cultural sights, to renowned eateries, and highly rated hotels.”
