TripAdvisor announced its 2015 Travelers’ Choice™ awards for Destinations. This year's awards honor 469 top travel destinations worldwide including lists for Asia, Australia, Africa, Canada, Caribbean, Central America, Europe, China, Middle East, Russia, South America, the South Pacific, the U.K., and the U.S., based on the millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travelers.

Southeast Asian destinations make up almost half of the Asian list, taking out 13 of the 25 winning destinations. Siem Reap, Cambodia took the top spot, and was also named 2nd in the world, after Marrakesh, Morocco.

"We are thrilled that Siem Reap has been recognized by TripAdvisor's global community in the 2015 Travellers' Choice Destinations awards. Cambodia has rich cultural heritage and tropical ecology and we hope these awards will encourage more travelers to visit our beloved Kingdom," said Dr. Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism, Cambodia.

Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions in destinations worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.
