Travel planning and booking site TripAdvisor today announced the winners of its Travelers’ Choice awards for destinations, recognizing travelers’ favorite places around the world.
This year, Bali, Indonesia is the global winner and New York City ranks number one in the U.S. for the seventh consecutive year.
Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions in destinations worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period, as well as traveler booking interest on TripAdvisor.
The awards honor 418 destinations in 24 lists across the globe.
In a list dominated by European cities, Prague was ranked number nine among the Top 10 Travelers’ Choice Destinations in the World.
The ranking also suggests the cheapest time to go to each destination based on combined hotel and airfare pricing data for March 1–August 31, 2017.
April was deemed the least expensive month to travel to the Czech capital, though not that much cheaper—a trip to Prague next month will cost you a whopping 1% less than the combined spring/summer average for hotel and airfare.
In Prague this spring? We recommend the Easter markets starting in a little over a week.
