The travel audience made the judgements through the Philoxenia website. Travelers were more than pleased to vote the best of the greek tourism (the most popular travel destinations – the most popular hotels), since this year were concentrated 60% more votes than last year.

53% of the participants were women, while the rest 47% were men. From those only the 21% had a business relation with tourism.
