TripAdvisor Names Travellers’ Choice Destinations On The Rise

TripAdvisor™, the world’s largest travel site*, today announced the winners of its 2013 Travellers’ Choice™ Awards for Destinations on the Rise.  The awards highlight 54 spots globally that have seen the greatest increase in positive traveller feedback and traveller interest, year-over-year.

Havana, Cuba was the number one ranked destination for the top 10 in the world, and lists were also revealed for South Pacific, Asia, Europe, South America, and the U.S. Hua Hin, ranked fifth in Asia, is the only Thai destination included in the Asia list.

“For travellers looking for inspiration for their 2014 travel planning, TripAdvisor travellers have helped us put a spotlight some amazing destinations that caught the eye of travellers this past year,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “Between large cities gathering steam and off-the-beaten-path spots surfaced by our community, travellers can discover wonderful accommodations, attractions and restaurants in all of these award-winning destinations.”

“We are delighted to see Hua Hin figuring so prominently on the list of Asian Destinations on the Rise. A number of world-class golf courses, hotels and resorts, as well as health and spa facilities have firmly cemented Hua Hin’s place on the international tourism map. Now, thanks to the TripAdvisor readers’ award, it will gain even more prominence,” commented Suraphon Svetasreni, Tourism Authority of Thailand Governor.
