London is experiencing the Meghan Markle effect, right down to its spiking tourism levels. The city has just been named tops in the 2019 Travelers Choice Awards, while New York is slipping in its appeal - failing to make the top 10 of the coveted TripAdvisor listing.

None of South Africa's cities have made a showing either - but the allure of Paris continues to draw tourists as the City of Light is snugly in position two.

Fortunately for local travellers a number of visa-free destinations like Bali, Phuket and Istanbul  have all etched themselves into the top ten, curated by travellers across the globe.
