World through my eyes
Providenciales island in the Turks and Caicos which lies southeast of Bahamas has been named as the top island in the world by TripAdvisor™, the world’s largest travel site in its its Travellers’ Choice™ awards for Islands. This year’s awards honour more than 100 islands worldwide including lists for Asia, Africa, Caribbean, Europe, South America, the South Pacific, the U.K., and the U.S. The annual awards are based on the millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers across the globe. Actually, the Grace Bay in Providenciales, was last month named second in the list of top 25 beaches in the world by TripAdvisor.
All of the top 10 islands in Asia are located within the Southeast Asia region, with Ko Tao named the number one island in Asia, ahead of Bali and Phuket. Five of Thailand’s islands have once again been featured within the top 10 islands in Asia for the 2015 Travellers’ Choice awards. Ko Tao and Bali were also amongst the top ten islands in the world, placing 5th and 7th respectively. Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions on islands worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.
“Our well-travelled community has uncovered the best islands around the world for that perfect island escape whether you want to lie on the beach or seek adventure,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “To help travellers book their trips to these remarkable destinations, TripAdvisor has surfaced amazing island hotels to accommodate a range of travel budgets.” “From the budget seekers to the luxury travellers, visitors will find that there no shortage of possibilities for travellers of every type,” said Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, Minister of Tourism & Sport for Thailand.
