SINGAPORE, 29 July 2020: Tripadvisor announced the winners of its 18th annual Travelers’ Choice Awards Tuesday that honoured 4,817 businesses around the world.
Singapore Airlines was named top airline in Asia, and the top hotel worldwide honour went to Viroth’s Hotel – Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Winners are calculated based on the quality and quantity of the millions of reviews, opinions and ratings collected on Tripadvisor in 2019, prior to the pandemic.
With over 8.7 million businesses listed on Tripadvisor, the awards are a true testament to the outstanding service and quality that winners consistently provide to their guests.
“This has been a tough year for our industry, but the global desire to go and explore, whether the destination is an hour away or across the world, remains strong. We’re passionate about guiding travellers to the good out there, especially the good found within these recognised hotels, restaurants and airlines that rise to the occasion in offering the best of the best,” said Tripadvisor chief experience and brand officer Lindsay Nelson. “The Travelers’ Choice programme is one way that travellers and diners can benefit from the real-life experiences of other people so they can plan their perfect trip that meets their needs, budget and style.”
