IgoUgo's Week in Travel: Your Favorite Spots

IgoUgo's Week in Travel: Your Favorite Spots Photo

Posted on May 30, 2008 in Trip Ideas

While a place doesn’t have to be thousands of miles away to be a rewarding destination, IgoUgo travelers continue to amaze us with their enthusiasm for spots beyond the usual suspects. This week, for example, you read about South Africa more often than South Carolina. And it’s winter in the Southern Hemisphere!

Here are the week’s most visited destination pages in each of nine world regions; it probably doesn’t come as a surprise to you, wonderfully fickle travelers, that seven of the nine spots have changed rather dramatically since we last reported them.

North America: Cancun

Central America: Costa Rica

South America: Peru

Caribbean: St. Thomas

Europe: Paris

Middle East: Dubai

Asia: Bali

Africa: South Africa

South Pacific: Australia

Closer to home, the most popular journals included entries from four locals: Crater Lake National Park by Judy; Maui Local Favorites by smmmarti guide; Things to See in Dallas by Jeffrey; and An Escape to Picturesque San Antonio by smileygirl. The week’s most read blog post, IgoUgo’s Week in Travel: The Great Outdoors Is In, also featured some of our favorite home-grown marvels.

Proof that near or far, IgoUgo members embrace any chance to learn more—and to get away.
