The awards recognize 43 destinations around the world selected by an algorithm primarily measured by year-over-year increase in positive TripAdvisor traveler review ratings for accommodations, restaurants and attractions, and increase in booking interest. This is the fifth year of the awards and Travelers’ Choice Destinations on the Rise lists were also revealed for Europe, Asia and South America. “The Travelers’ Choice Destinations on the Rise lists are great options for travelers seeking inspiration for fresh, trending places to book in the new year,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “These award-winning locations are emerging in popularity among the TripAdvisor community thanks to their highly-rated options for places to eat, play and stay for travelers.” Get the full story at TripAdvisor
