Despite being relatively unknown, Japan’s Ishigaki island has topped TripAdvisor’s list of the world’s top 10 trending destinations for 2018. But what else should feature on your bucket list?
- The travel site has revealed its most-popular holiday spots for globe-trotters wanting something different
- Ishigaki island is the favourite, despite having a low profile among competing Japanese destination points
- Other must-see areas in the shortlist include Canada’s Halifax, Costa Rica’s San Jose and Croatia’s Rovinj
As global travel booms, it can be tricky to find a quiet corner of the world.
But savvy holiday-makers still discover interesting spots along the road less travelled – including a little-known Japanese island called Ishigaki, which is now deemed the coolest place to be – and be seen – this year, according to TripAdvisor.
The Japanese island tops this year’s TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for ‘Destinations on the Rise’, based on positive feedback.
