TripAdvisor’s 2018 Travelers’ Choice Award Winners were announced earlier this week on Thursday and Kathmandu has been ranked 19th among the top 25 destinations in the world and sixth in Asia.
The top spot this year went to Paris (France), followed by London (UK), Rome (Italy), Bali (Indonesia) and Crete (Greece). The ranking is determined by an algorithm based on the quality and quantity of reviews for hotels, restaurants and attractions from users of the travel information site.
On the other hand; Bali in Indonesia topped the Asia list, followed by Phuket (Thailand), Hanoi (Vietnam), Siem Reap (Siem Reap Province) and Tokyo (Japan).
“Nepal’s capital is surrounded by a valley full of historic sites, ancient temples, shrines, and fascinating villages. Mingle with locals and animals amid Durbar Square’s monuments, or join mountain trekkers in the bustling Thamel District. Explore shops for exquisite work by local artisans – carpets and paper prints are specialties”, the website writes about Kathmandu.
