Guess The 2013 Destinations on the Rise Winners on Facebook!

Think you have a good idea what the hottest up-and-coming world destinations are? Test your trendsetting travel knowledge by guessing the winners of this year’s Travelers’ Choice Destinations on the Rise. We’ll be announcing the lists tomorrow, but thought it would be fun to give you some hints on Facebook.


Starting today at 12:00pm ET, we’ll post pixelated photos of the top 10 Travelers’ Choice Destinations on the Rise in the world to an album on Facebook. Then, every 3 hours until 9:00pm ET, we’ll make the photos a little clearer, giving you a better idea of what these top spots are. Show other travelers what you know by listing your guesses in a single comment in the album’s comment section. And make a new guess each time we update the photos.


For our friends in the U.S. and UK, we’ll give TripAdvisor tote bags to the first 20 people who can correctly guess all 10 places (rules below) by 11:59pm ET tonight. And then stay tuned. We’ll do the final reveal 12:01am ET.


Start your guessing!

There is a limit of one (1) entry per person and you may not use multiple e-mail addresses to enter. The use of an agency or any automated system to enter is strictly prohibited, and Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entries received through such methods, as determined by Sponsor, in its sole discretion.

  5. Prizes:  Up to fifty (50) winners will each receive a TripAdvisor gift bag with an approximate retail value of $25. A winner is responsible for paying any applicable income taxes and any other costs not listed above. Any prize details not specified above will be determined by Sponsor, in its sole discretion.
  6. General Conditions:  In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Promotion is impaired in any way, Sponsor may either: (a) suspend the Promotion to address the impairment and then resume the Promotion; or (b) award the prizes at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify and seek damages from any individual who tampers with the operation of the Promotion, violates these Official Rules, or acts in a disruptive or unsportsmanlike manner. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. Proof of sending any communication to Sponsor by mail shall not be deemed proof of receipt of that communication. The Promotion is subject to federal, state, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited.
  7. Release and Limitations of Liability:  Except in cases of death or personal injury caused by the negligence of the Sponsor, you agree to release and hold harmless Facebook, Sponsor, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents (the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Promotion or receipt or use of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Promotion; (b) technical errors; (c) printing errors; (d) lost, late, postage-due, misdirected, or undeliverable mail; (e) errors in the administration of the Promotion or the processing of entries; or (f) injury or damage to persons or property. You further agree that in any cause of action, the Released Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Promotion, and in no event shall the Released Parties be liable for attorney’s fees. You waive the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages.

All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, your rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of Sponsor in connection with the Promotion, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of Massachusetts, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of Massachusetts or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than Massachusetts.
  10. Sponsor:  The Promotion is sponsored by TripAdvisor LLC, 141 Needham Street, Newton, MA, 02464. “This Sweepstakes is in no way sponsored by, endorsed by, administered by, or associated with, Facebook.”
