TripAdvisor is the largest travel site in the world, with a network presence in 34 countries.
The spots were selected based on data collected from millions of TripAdvisor user searches and reviews. These were the places that have seen the “greatest increase in positive traveler feedback and traveler interest.”
Here is the list:
La Fortuna de San Carlos (Costa Rica)
Ambergris Caye (Belize)
Ha Noi (Vietnam)
Ha Noi is one of the three Asian cities in the list, ranking behinds Nepal’s Kathmandu and Japan’s Sapporo.
TripAdvisor described Ha Noi as follows: “The charming Vietnamese capital has aged well, preserving the Old Quarter, monuments and colonial architecture, while making room for modern developments alongside. Ha Noi may have shrugged off several former names, including Thang Long, or “ascending dragon,” but it hasn’t forgotten its past, as sites such as Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and Hoa Lo Prison attest. Lakes, parks, shady boulevards and more than 600 temples and pagodas add to the appeal of this city, which is easily explored by taxi.”
