This year Bali, Indonesia is the global winner and New York City ranks number one in the US for the seventh consecutive year.
Maui was ranked #2 on the US list with highlights that include warm sand, windsurfing and snorkeling. The site reports that the least expensive month to go is April, when travel is 8% less than the combined spring/summer average for hotel and airfare. Hawaiʻi Island and Oʻahu also made the list at #3 and #4 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 over a 12-month period, as well as traveler booking interest on the site.
