Top travel destinations of 2010 by Frommer’s

Paris tops the list as the 2010 Reader Favourite selection

Each year the Frommer’s® writers and editorial team come up with a list of destinations travelers should consider visiting in the year ahead. Not necessarily “hot spots,” these destinations are what we consider up and coming, often overlooked or underestimated-or simply alternatives to nearby overrun tourist traps. This year, the team at Frommer’s reached out to readers as well and came up with a Top Destination list that includes a Reader Favourite selection.

“We recognize that it’s difficult to whittle the world down to just a dozen or so places and that each annual list will inevitably exclude someplace our readers are eager to visit,” said Editorial Director David Lytle.

“So, this year, we decided to give them the opportunity to nominate and then vote on the place most of them would like to visit in 2010. Everybody has an opinion, and we wanted readers to be able to quantify theirs.”  For more, go to: for a detailed list.

After more than 1,200 readers nominated nearly 3,000 destinations around the world and then cast 3,500 ballots, Paris was chosen as the Reader Favourite. The remaining destinations were selected by Frommer’s writers and staff as a mix of value picks, spots that are gearing up for a big event, alternative choices to nearby popular and overrun tourist sites, and destinations that are justifiably hyped and should be visited. The contest was sponsored by Viva Wyndham All-Inclusive Resorts, which has locations in the Dominican Republic, Mexico and the Bahamas.
