  1. I’ve been to several parks on both those lists in addition to several that also did not make the list. The reality is that some of the world’s most spectacular parks (and I would argue most of which are more impressive rhan those mentioned on the lists) aren’t easily accessible to the average population, primarily because of their location and people’s finances. As a result, feedback on trip advisor would be limited to only a select few people who are capable of travelling to those exotic, rare and truly spectacular destinations.

  2. I do not know how the list was compiled. What were the criteria to identify the best parks? Guel park is not the real park, it is basically building with art works, it can be identified as outstanding architectural place, not a natural park. I do not know whether Tripadvisor conducted a survey to identify the best parks.
