Or more specifically, it’s from their 2015 Travellers’ Choice awards.
Guys, let’s be honest. We’re all long-term sufferers of wanderlust — that, and we’re also vacation addicts. If you haven’t planned where your next trip will take you this year, today’s announcement from TripAdvisor might just help give you a few ideas. The world’s largest travel site has just released the winners list for its 2015 Travellers’ Choice for Destinations, all based on the millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers.
One of the interesting entries to have made it to this year’s Top 10 would have to be Siam Reap, for being named second in the world, and first in the list for Asia.
The winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account both the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions in destinations worldwide throughout a 12-month period.
Check out the list for both the top 10 destinations in the world for 2015 and the top 10 destinations in Asia (although we think they left out some underrated ones that we found).
