VoyageTrek, an online travel publisher based in Kirkland, Wash., released the first set of rankings in their 2015 Greatest Getaways series, where over 1,000 luxury travelers were surveyed to determine the world’s best destinations. Surveys were distributed to world travelers and the rankings were based on their answers and insights, meaning these rankings showcase destinations that are truly valued in each subject area. VoyageTrek’s mission is to help people plan their next travel adventure by providing travel rankings, traveler reviews, and connecting travelers to award-winning tour companies. This set of four rankings will kick off a bi-weekly series based on a variety of travel interests and will continue into next year.

“Instead of creating an editorialized list of destinations, we felt it was important to gather insights from luxury travelers and base our rankings on their exceptional travel experiences,” said Sung Rhee, CEO of VoyageTrek. He continued, “these rankings are a reflection of destinations that are truly memorable for people.”

At the top of the Best Small Towns list is Cusco, Peru, a mountain town in the Andes that has many preserved buildings and stone streets, including the world-famous site of Machu Picchu.
