London bested Paris to obtain the first spot as the top destination in the world on TripAdvisor’s annual Traveller’s Choice Awards, 2019. The awards were based on the experiences and reviews of users over a span of 12 months. Where London and Paris occupied the first two positions, New York and Prague slipped out of the top ten. Phuket made a surprising entry on the list as the rest remain same, though slightly shuffled. On London being voted as the Best Traveller’s Choice Destination, Laura Citron, CEO of VisitLondon expressed her gratitude and praised her tourism industry. “To have the world's largest travel site's community name London as the best-rated destination in the world is a true validation of the incredible hard work of our tourism industry, ensuring our visitors have exceptional experiences every single day of the year.” Here’s our take on the Top Ten Traveller’s Choice Destinations and why they were chosen.
