It's no surprise that travelers flock to Paris, New York and London.
The lasting draw of these destinations is borne out in TripAdvisor's fifth annual Travelers' Choice Destinations awards. The awards, announced Tuesday, are based on the popularity of destinations and take into account insights from millions of the travel review site's users.
Paris was named the world's most popular travel spot -- followed by New York City, London, Rome, Barcelona, Venice, San Francisco, Florence, Prague and Sydney.
Awards are also bestowed upon the top U.S. destinations. New York and San Francisco top that list, followed by Chicago, Las Vegas, Orlando, Washington, Boston, Los Angeles, Honolulu and New Orleans in the the top 10.
