TripAdvisor – the leading portal used by the public to evaluate travel destinations and products – has named Bali as the best destination in the world in its 2017 TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice Awards.
Now in its ninth year, the Travellers' Choice Awards are based on algorithmic assessments that count the number of reviews and ratings logged by the public over a one-year period in combination with the number of Bali bookings made via TripAdvisor.
In the past, TripAdvisor’s selection of the “best destination” was based on urban areas, but islands were added to the possible winners in the 2017 awards.
