Cool? I like LP, but they can be so tacky with these lists and social media grabs sometimes. They're really arbitrary.

It's cool to see Kotor as the top city but I hope it doesn't become ruined by tourists. The drive around the bay is absolutely spectacular.

If these lists change each year thus encouraging a dispersal of the "tourist footprint" from year to year, it serves a purpose.

Of course that could be a double edged sword for a locale that sees a sudden influx of tourists due to being on the list, then invests its windfall in tourist infrastructure only to see the popularity drop off in successive seasons.

Woah, undeniably not enough international attention towards mainland Asia. Barely any reference! They made a fatal mistake to avoid with the rankings solely according to just this error. Out of every relevant nomination on the rankings, the only one I truly agree with, including the order, is Transylvania area of Romania, Bavaria Germany, Georgetown Malaysia, Rome Italy, and maybe Fiji, Poland, Kotor.

Every other item is not a rational declaration in any way imaginable. At least there is variety of aligning between Countries, Regions, and Cities to avoid too much generalization.

To Underrate Golden Hidden Treasures, and Deserving More Focus Is One Main Zone Of Classification.

Austria - a bit overdone/over-"glorified" as any western country for that matter.

I'd make the list very differently yet I agree with Slovakia and Czechia being up.
