Trip Advisor Awards Reveal Best Destinations
TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel review site, recently held their annual Travellers’ Choice Awards, where they crown the greatest destinations in the world based on feedback from their users. For the first time ever, Marrakech in North Africa was voted the best destination.
Following closely behind was Siem Reap (Cambodia) in second place, then Istanbul (Turkey) in third place, Hanoi (Vietnam) in fourth place and Prague (Czech Republic) in fifth place. London just missed out on the top five, coming in sixth place.
Interestingly, New York failed to make the top ten for the second year running, and popular destinations in North America and Western Europe were out ranked by cities in places such as Africa and Eastern Europe.
The complete 2015 top ten destinations in the world as revealed by Trip Advisor are;
1. Marrakech – Africa
2. Siem Reap – Cambodia
3. Istanbul – Turkey
4. Hanoi – Vietnam
5. Prague – Czech Republic
6. London – UK
7. Rome – Italy
8. Buenos Aires – Argentina
9. Paris – France
10. Cape Town – South Africa
Siem Reap is one of this year’s biggest climbers, gaining a massive seven places from last year to become the 2015 runner up. Unfortunately Rome has fallen five places this year to take the seventh slot, and London has fallen from third to sixth place this year.
