If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where’d it be? We’re betting Istanbul. The Turkish city that spans Europe and Asia is, after all, TripAdvisor’s top Travellers' Choice World Destination for 2014. The website determines its top 25 winners by an algorithm that considers the quantity and quality of user reviews — TripAdvisor gets up to 260 million unique visitors a month — and ratings for hotels, attractions and restaurants gathered over a 12-month period. Like Istanbul, Beijing, Marrakech, Siem Reap and Shanghai saw big jumps in popularity compared to 2013, while NYC, Barcelona, Sydney and San Fran saw the largest drops. The top 15 follow (+/- denotes the change in ranking year-over-year; 0 is no change and new is new to the list). For the top 25:

1. Istanbul, Turkey (+11)
2. Rome, Italy (+2)
3. London, England (0)
4. Beijing, China (+17)
5. Prague, Czech Republic (+4)
