The Best Holiday Locations on Google Maps

NY Times Best Places to Go in 2010

The New York Times are using Google Maps to display their readers' favourite destinations for 2010 and to show the New York Times' own picks.

Each country on the map is represented by a circle map marker. The size of the circle represents the number of reader recommendations. At the moment the USA is by far the most popular country as a travel destination.

Beneath the map you can view the readers' recommendations and the New York Times' own picks for individual cities. Istanbul is a clear winner in the readers' recommendations.

There is an interesting comparison to be made with Ben Marsh's #UKHols map , which shows Tokyo and New York as the most popular destination for UK visitors.
