Our annual Tops in Travel Twitter chat gives participants the opportunity to share their favorite, or top, travel products and experiences in 12 categories. From "top #travel destination" at 3 p.m. to "top under-the-radar foodie destination" at 3:55 p.m., our tweeters were on their game with tremendous top tips for travel.
Here were a few top answers to chat questions:
Q2: "Top tip for beating the crowds in a popular destination." Several respondents tweeted that a travel advisor would help get them make the most of a busy destination. Another tip? Just skip the busy destination for something equally great.
Q4: "Top family-travel trend?" Trust the tell-it-like-it-is editors at @Wonderlust travel to identify this top trend:
Q7: "Top 'authentic'experience that's truly authentic?" This question came from editor in chief Arnie Weissmann's cover story about authenticity in destinations.
Q8: "Top sustainable-travel program or product?" Surprise tip from Royal Caribbean International senior vice president Vicki Freed: Travel in the off season.
Q11: "Top aspirational trip? Don't hold back ...." we had several participants who specialize in the art (and practical logistics) of aspirational travel on this chat. For further #inspo on amazing travel, look no further than travel advisors' social media feeds.
