CNN  — 

Want to visit London to explore Buckingham Palace and stroll through Hyde Park? Or are you simply passing through the city on your way to Stratford-upon-Avon to mark the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death?

Either way, you’re going to have a lot of company.

London jumped five spots to become the world’s top destination in TripAdvisor’s 2016 Travelers’ Choice Destination awards.

TripAdvisor, the travel website, sliced and diced millions of user reviews over the course of a year to select its Travelers’ Choice winners for the world’s top destinations, which were released Monday.

“The Travelers’ Choice Destination awards recognize the world’s most beloved travel spots, based on feedback and booking interest from the TripAdvisor community,” Barbara Messing, TripAdvisor’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement.

These are the world’s happiest countries

“For those planning a summer vacation, now is a great time to plan a trip to one of these popular destinations where hotels are bookable on TripAdvisor for an average of $200 per night from June through August,” she said.
