The Traveler’s Choice 2017 unveiled their top ranking in the categories World, Europe and France.

469 destinations across the globe were honored by the Tripadvisor site at the Traveler’s Choice 2017 on Tuesday, March 24th. The travel site was based on different criteria of quality and quantity of the opinions and comments of the users about the hotels, restautants and attractions over a year.

Regarding the Top 10 Destinations Travelers’ Choice World, the city that wins first prize is Marrakech . Jemaa el-Fna square, with its many activities, fruit juice vendors or snake charmers, the souks and the palm grove, as well as the many traditional hammans are the delights of tourists.

In the second position, Siem Reap , in Cambodia, is developing more and more and houses temples, including the most famous: Angkor Wat. That of Ta Prohm is also to be discovered. This abandoned place surrounded by trees is bathed in a special atmosphere. Some scenes from the movie Tomb Raider , starring Angelina Jolie, were shot there. The Bayon Temple is also a must-see with its face towers. Then, head towards the old market, with its stands of fruits, vegetables, fish or those that offer buddhas or silk fabrics. Or visit a floating fishing village on Lake TonléSap.

Istanbul closes the top three. The charm of the spice market, the walk along the Bosphorus or the visit of the Hagia Sophia basilica still operate. Bargains in the Souks for souvenirs, as well as the many coffees to enjoy a mint tea are some of the most popular activities of tourists.

Paris ranks 9th in this list and 5th in the Top 10 destinations in Europe. The City of Light is always seduced abroad. It ranks at the top of the Top 10 Destinations Travelers’ Choice France, followed by Nice, Marseille, Lyon and Bayeux.
