CRETE AMONG TOP 25 DESTINATIONS
For one more year, TripAdvisor, probably the most well-known travel-related website, published one of its most famous and highly anticipated lists, with the top 25 destinations in the world for 2019.
As written in TripAdvisor, “The birthplace of both the king of the Olympian gods and of modern European civilization, Crete is a Mediterranean jewel. It is rich with archaeological and mythological history that is reflected in its ancient ruins and cultural attractions. Soak up the charming atmosphere of Chania Town’s Old Venetian Harbor or the fortresses and monasteries of Rethymnon. The awesome Minoan ruins of Malia date to 1900 BC, and majestic Mt. Ida is said to be home to the cave where Zeus was born.”
Established in 2002, Travelers’ Choice awards are the highest honor TripAdvisor can bestow. They are based on millions of reviews and opinions from travelers around the world, reflecting “the best of the best” for service, quality, and customer satisfaction, from hotels and accommodations to destinations, attractions, and even brands and products. The results are being determined with the use of an algorithm, which takes into consideration data gathered over a 12-month period, as well as the booking interest. Travelers’ Choice awards single out not just popular choices, but truly exceptional ones that keep travelers coming back.
