The Trip Advisor Traveller’s Choice Awards are annual awards from the renowned travel review site that recognize not just the best destinations, but also companies that excel within the travel industry.

Last week they announced their global awards while this week it was the turn for the continents with Asia getting it turns today.

For many a travel agent this means this means that getting a negative review comes with both stigma and fear. This has been recognized to such an extent that in Thailand people leaving negative reviews at various hotels have even faced arrest.

What cities do YPT feel were missed from 25 Best Asian Travel Destinations?

There are a number if Asian destinations that Young Pioneer Tours enjoy, but were not added to the list. These include the island if Palawan – although that did make a top islands list, as well as Yangon in Myanmar, not to mention numerous cities from China.

Still top of our most would undoubtedly be Pyongyang, although with North Korea now being closed for 4+ years we can certainly understand why it has been missed this tear.
