Bali Is World’s Best Tourist Destination
Bali has been named the world’s number one destination, thanks to the recent 2017 TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards! TripAdvisor is the world’s leading portal that provides honest and genuine reviews and travel related content from members of the public who evaluate travel destinations, establishments and travel-related products.
- Here are the winners of TripAdvisor’s 2017 Top Destination:
- Bali, Indonesia
- London, UK
- Paris, France
- Rome, Italy
- New York City, United States
- Crete, Greece
- Barcelona, Spain
- Siem Reap, Cambodia
- Prague, Czech Republic
- Phuket, Thailand
Now in its ninth year, the Travellers’ Choice Awards are based on algorithmic assessments that count the number of reviews and ratings logged by the public over a one-year period in combination with the number of Bali bookings made via TripAdvisor. In the past, TripAdvisor’s selection of the “best destination” was based on urban areas, but islands were added to the possible winners in the 2017 awards.
According to the State News Agency Antara, Ida Bagus Agung Partha Adnyana, Head of the Bali Branch of the Indonesian Tourism Association (GIPI) said, “This award belongs to the people of Bali that sees Bali named as the best destination in the world.”
