TripAdvisor travel site announced the winners of its Travellers’ Choice Awards for destinations, recognising the locations that are the most popular among TripAdvisor reviewers. This year, London has been named the top destination in the world for 2019 and Jaipur ranks number one in India while also bagging spots in the World (#20) and Asia (#7) lists.
Commenting on the announcement, Nikhil Ganju, Country Manager, TripAdvisor India said, “The Travellers’ Choice Awards for Destinations highlights major cities that continue to receive tremendous love from travellers for the outstanding experience they deliver. One of the toughest things while planning a holiday is choosing the right time to visit a destination so as to experience it at a relaxed pace, without getting lost in the holiday crowds. Visiting during off-peak seasons is a good idea as you not only find great savings but also less crowds that allows you to explore the city at leisure.”
Millions of travellers visit these iconic destinations every year, and those planning trips to one of these places should research the best time to go. Oftentimes, a trip either side of the peak season will mean a better experience with fewer crowds and cheaper prices on airfare and accommodation. For example, travellers can save up to 47% on hotels in Jaipur when visiting in April compared to December. It’s also worth exploring beyond a destination’s well-known attractions – travellers frequently find a more authentic and memorable experience away from the main tourist areas.
