TripAdvisor has announced the top 25 Travelers’ Choice 2011 best destinations and Cape Town, after 45-million travellers have had their say, has been declared the world’s No.1 destination.
The planet’s most popular travel website lists Sydney (Australia) in second place and Machu Picchu (Peru) in third.
TripAdvisor spokesperson, Emma O’Boyle, was quoted by PRNewswire as saying, “Cape Town is clearly the destination to beat. With beautiful scenery, great wine and gorgeous weather, it’s easy to see why Cape Town, which also played host to last year’s World Cup, has topped this year’s list.”
