Paris scoops best TripAdvisor global visitor destination

Musee d'OrsayAt the recently announced TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards, Paris took the number one spot in the category of best global destination. Paris triumphed over arch rivals including London, Dubai, New York and Tokyo to scoop up the coveted position at the head of the table for 2018.

The annual Travelers’ Choice awards are based on real reviews posted up by travellers on TripAdvisor’s website over the preceding 12-month period. A formula factoring in the amount of reviews, their positivity and star status is used to calculate the ratings.

The Travelers’ Choice awards list the top 25 Destinations worldwide as well as for regions and other genres like the best beaches and the best islands. For the 2018 honours list, Paris was lauded for its wining, dining and shopping opportunities plus legendary tourist sites and beautiful boulevards.

Of the more than 4,000 attractions in Paris, Le Marais District and the iconic Musee d’Orsay were singled out for special mentions along with old faves including the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral. Although it did not win this year, London proved it is still high on the bucket lists of travellers by garnering the number two award.

Cultural and heritage attractions gave significant momentum to London’s exalted position on the table. Churchill’s War Rooms, the British Museum and the Tower of London were the elite sightseeing draws. Bringing up the rear of the Travelers’ Choice top five were Rome and then two islands, Indonesia’s Bali and Crete in Greece.
