Top 10 landmarks around the world

2014-07-01 14:27
When we say landmark, what’s the very first place that springs to mind?

The Eiffel Tower?  

Table Mountain?

Maybe Christ the Redeemer or the Statue of Liberty?

Well, interestingly, none of the above made it into TripAdvisor’s recently released list of top 10 landmarks from around the world.  

The awards identify leading travel spots around the world based on millions of reviews and opinions posted on the site by travellers on a daily basis. 

Winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for landmark and park attractions worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.
