Number One Travel Destination Named By TripAdvisor

London’s reign as TripAdvisor’s number one top travel destination is over, as the Indonesian island of Bali takes the crown in the 2017 list.

Posted on

08 May 2017

London has been pushed from the top spot on TripAdvisor’s list of the top 10 world travel destinations for 2017, with Bali in Indonesia being named number one. 

As well as being increasingly popular with backpackers and travellers who venture to South East Asia, Bali has become a staple luxury holiday destination. The small island has cemented its status as an essential travel destination in recent years. Its idyllic setting and scenery coupled with the white sand beaches and exotic black sand beaches make it an obvious choice for any luxury cruise holiday. 

Surprisingly, this was Bali’s first appearance in TripAdvisor’s Top 10, shooting straight to pole position. Despite being a small island, Bali has many attractions and a diverse landscape that can cater to all tastes and desires. 
 

 

Large metropolitan cities have traditionally dominated the list in previous years, with London leading the way in the 2016 table. This year six of the top ten travel destinations are among the biggest cities on the planet, with four of the top 10 being major European capitals. 

The list was determined by an algorithm that judged the quality and quantity of users’ reviews and the ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions for the past 12 months. 

As well as Bali, other island destinations featured on the list include Crete in Greece and Phuket in Thailand.

Here’s TripAdvisor’s list of the top 10 world destinations of 2017 in full: 

  1. Bali, Indonesia
  2. London, England
  3. Paris, France
  4. Rome, Italy
  5. New York City, United States
  6. Crete, Greece
