Bali is the most popular destination in the world, according to the 2021 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards. It has risen from fourth last year, dethroning London from the top spot to second place.
The awards reveal where travellers ventured in 2020, while travel was open, as well as where they dreamed of going while the pandemic kept them stuck at home. The other categories are Trending and Emerging destinations around the world. And at a time when travellers are enjoying the great outdoors more than ever, 2021 brings with it a new category – National Parks.
Here the Yorkshire Dales National Park has been named No1 in Europe and 11th-best in the world, with Serengeti in Tanzania claiming gold globally and Grand Teton National Park America’s top entry, in fourth place. Another notable accolade for the UK goes to Cornwall’s St Ives, named fifth in the worldwide Emerging Destinations ranking. Topping the list is the Caribbean island of Martinique, followed by Panama City Beach in Florida and Brazil’s Armacao dos Buzios in third place.
