Marrakech, the world’s best rated destination this year


Tripadvisor unveils the world’s best rated destinations in annual travellers’ choice awards

Marrakech has today been named the best rated destination in the world for the first time in the seventh annual Travellers’ Choice awards for Destinations, announced by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site*.

The TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for Destinations reveal the best rated destinations in the World, Europe and UK each year, based on the millions of reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers.

This year’s awards have revealed several destinations in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe that are outperforming more traditional holiday destinations in North America and Europe.

Marrakech claimed the number one spot for the first time, while Siem Reap in Cambodia jumped seven places up to second in the rankings. Istanbul, Hanoi and Prague completed the World top five list.

By contrast, Rome, named runner up in the awards last year, dropped five places to seventh, while New York, the best rated US destination, failed to make the world top ten for the second year running.

London slipped down from third to sixth place on the World list, although the UK capital does have the honour of being one of only three destinations to have retained a top ten ranking in the awards five years in a row.
